On Behalf of Introspection Retreats, we wish to present to you The Men of Ma'at Retreat hosted by Michael Ruth.
If you are feeling out of balance, out of place, drained, or in need of having a deeper understanding of the world and your place in it, we invite you to join us on the beautiful Caribbean coast of Costa Rica for a total retreat experience. Kings come! Reclaim your throne!
The Men of Ma’at retreat is five days designed for black and brown men to explore the history and philosophy of this Ancient African Yoga practice known as Kemetic Yoga. Kemetic yoga emerged from one of the oldest known civilizations in ancient Egypt, then known as Kemet. Not many are aware of the fact that the ancient Egyptians practiced Yogic exercises and meditation thousands of years ago. The modern version of this ancient system was developed, studied, translated and interpreted from hieroglyphic texts and images that appeared on kemetic temple walls.
The benefits of practicing Kemetic yoga regularly are; a deeper connection to your true self and intuition, a noticeable increase in your manifestation powers, increasing flexibility, and a greater awareness of your breath. When we get into the habit of communicating with the elements of nature and the divine within through movement and postures; we are living in MA’AT.
