Yoga (asana), guided self-compassion meditation, chanting, nature walk, discussions on intention setting, a sound bath by Planted Energy.
Nathan Solomon of Kundalinicoach.net is the repetition of words or phrases which can be used in a harmony or tune and is as old as the spoken word. All words hold vibration, some more powerful than others. When someone chants, and the words are repeated, a vibratory, circular tone and pattern are established inducing a meditative state of mind. Chanting when coupled with directed awareness of the spine can assist in raising the Kundalini energy.
Founder of Hearts Alive Yoga, Suzanna Mannion, will lead all-levels yoga asana during the retreat. Instructions for the poses will include variations and modifications to help meet the needs of all students. The class will end in a generous savasana preceded by a guided meditation/visualization.
Weather permitting we will enjoy a mile (or less) low-key nature walk on campus or just off campus into the Wildcat Canyon Regional Park. More information is provided in the FAQs linked button below.
A sound bath is a deeply-immersive, full body listening experience that intentionally uses sound to ignite gentle yet powerful therapeutic and restorative processes to nurture your mind, body, spirit and soul. The experience begins with each person lying down or seated in a comfortable position, often with a blanket, mat, small pillow and an eye mask. It involves singing bowls, which create an echoing sound that feels like it fills the room. For many, sound baths have the ability to relieve tension, anxiety and negative moods.
Discussions on Intention Setting:
During the retreat we will engage in discussions on intention setting and prior to the retreat date, registrants will be engaged with interesting optional exercises that support them in getting clearer on their New Year intentions, and "lock them in."
