About this trip

 

This meditation intensive will focus on the Root Chakra. This chakra is foundational to our mental health, and the one word that I like to describe a balanced and healthy root chakra is TRUST. Trust in our particular process, trust in our future, and trust in other people.  


This trust often becomes undermined through trauma and various challenges that we face. When the root chakra is unbalanced, we over-worry about the security of ourself and our family. Instead of feeling excited about our future, we develop fears around security.

During this meditation intensive, we will be working with the long form Ganesha mantra. This particular mantra is a powerful remover of obstacles, so that we can move forward into our future with ease instead of worry.  


We will also practice a kriya, or moving mediation, to connect to the energy of our root chakra. This Kriya can bring an incredible sense of grounding, and help to keep us present to the experience of life. It can also bring up various traumas from the past so that we can see them, feel them, and heal them. I am always available during the session to offer support during challenging moments, should they arise.


And finally, we will also incorporate 2 simple and transformational psychic development exercises. These are powerful breathing techniques to integrate the work of the root chakra practices, and clear the psychic channels. These exercises develop our clarity and intuition. And will bring a sense of lightness to balance the root chakra work, which can feel heavy at times.


This meditation intensive is for everyone! People new and old to meditation are all welcome!

We will meet Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10:00 - 11:15 am NYC time. All sessions are recorded so that students can watch the recording if they cannot attend live.

The accommodations and food and yoga were great. And big thanks to Marina for allowing me special kitchen privileges! However, a couple of things I reasonably want for $3000 a week: There is hot water for showers only during certain hours of the day. We weren't told this upon arrival, so after two attempts at a hot shower, I took one with cool/lukewarm water. Not good. Turn on the hot water. Also, this is the 21st century -- so in spite of Cocoon's virtue signaling "great opportunity" demurral/excuse in the small print ("Please keep in mind we are in the countryside, not NYC. This is a great opportunity to leave your phone in your room, and enjoy nature, a conversation, or a lovely book") -- there should be a working, stable internet connection in every room, not just in the main gathering space. As it was, you had to sit in the freezing foyer on an uncomfortable bench to do any reasonable internet business or work. Don't tell me I have to talk to someone or read a book in my free time. I'm a grown up. Zero stars for this. Cheers!

Above and beyond all expectations - though the weather was a little chilly (early April), the location (Cocoon Portugal) was idyllic and the food was incredible, the meditation, yoga practice, and pilates bootcamp - just WOW - the overall experience literally defined what a PERFECT RETREAT looked and felt like in real life. Jared, Rebecca, Alison, and Jason + Cocoon Portugal, Anton, Tony = these people held such a warm embrace and a holistic container for us to heal and to just be. Thank YOU so much!
