Journey to Petra: Yoga Adventure Through Jordan

Truthfully, Jordan was not a region of the world I thought I'd be visiting, but I can't possibly describe how happy I am I said yes. David orchestrated such a safe, rich and rewarding experience in such a truly amazing place. The balance of daily asana practice with perfectly curated cultural experiences (Dead Sea! Petra!! Camel ride by starlight!!! Yoga in a Bedouin tent!!!!), and - ohmygawd - the food! There's not a day since my return that I haven't marveled at just how lucky I am to have been in the right place at the right time to receive all the gifts this trip offered...
My personal highlight of the trip was the famed Wadi Rum desert stay with an early morning camel ride with the Bedouins and an exquisite "glamping" private tent stay. Every moment was like a dream, steeped in age old history and beauty beyond explanation...
David's trip "Journey to Petra" was an unforgettable trip that was so much more than Petra. The community, the yoga, the food, the sights, the time spent walking the roads of ancient civilizations put so much of my daily life into better perspective. This was some combination of retreat and adventure in a land that holds history of mythic proportion. Seeing this part of the world was also a humbling experience that brought me compassion and understanding for past and present political, religious and social events. I am changed and I would do this Journey again in a heartbeat.
Abhimanyu (David,) I’m glad I waited to tell you about my experience in New Mexico, because I wasn’t aware of how much it would affect me now that I’ve returned to my “normal life.” There was a sadness that I think we all felt when we had to say goodbye to our magical alternate reality we shared, and you helped create for us, in those mountains full of deep wisdom. But since I left the retreat I’ve felt a return to something that I forgot, or missed within me. I’ve taken so many tools for my own spiritual practice from this that I honestly did not expect, I’m so grateful. And like Wolf said, “so inspired by you!” I feel a deep connection with everyone who shared this experience with me, and I think they would agree that this was a transformative experience, to say the least. I would sincerely encourage anyone to do something like this. Going into this I was in a particularly worn down place, emotionally, but yoga has allowed me to transcend that and be in the moment, and cultivate a practice, both spiritually and physically that is nothing short of amazing. Like my mom said, this is a turning point for me, and I didn’t even realize it at the time, but my practice is bolstered by, and draws upon the truly transformative experience I’ve had at the Jemez retreat. I am eternally grateful! THANK YOU! From the bottom of my heart, much love.

This trip was a transformative experience - an opportunity to truly unplug, restore and refresh. Excellent food and beverage, prepared from farm fresh ingredients according to ayurvedic principles, two top notch yoga practices per day, luxurious hot springs on property, and two outstanding excursions to enjoy the New Mexico landscape - one to Bandelier National Monument - an "only in New Mexico" experience. Not only is David Moreno a yoga master, but his self care suggestions, and depth of wisdom create a new consciousness about one's body and wellness. The Bodhi Zen Center creates a rhythmic, meditative environment in which to connect with others, and oneself. I would definitely jump at the chance to return.
Hi Abhi, I'm just writing to say thank you for such an extraordinary week. I'm still processing it all. And still doing the dinacharya routine (or some of it) each day! - and meditating in the mornings. Am already missing your yoga classes. Mark said something wonderful about the sequence of classes you taught over the course of the week - that they were like parts of a long serial poem, which was the whole week of practice. I agree. Hugs and love and gratitude - see you back in Oakland sometime soon Namaste Suzanne For anyone thinking of doing a retreat with David - you just won't find a sweeter, more expansively knowledgable teacher anywhere. He's the best.
Thank you, David, for a wonderful day. The Deliberate Stillness Retreat was a perfect introduction for my first all day yoga-mediation retreat. My wife had attended the previous year's retreat and this was her gift to me. I very much enjoyed the various forms of meditation and of course the yoga. Having the retreat at Green Gulch on a cool, rainy day served to enhance an already great experience. I am already looking forward to next year!
Amazing experience thanks to the combination of yoga and meditation and the expertise of David. Great location even with heavy rain and great food. I would do it again and would love to bring my husband with me.
