Join us in the tranquil beauty of Bali for an experiential journey through the rich terrain of asana, pranayama, meditation and a shared inquiry into philosophy and life.
When presence meets the living contours of experience the body responds.
But it is the way we offer our presence that determines how it responds.
Learning to inhabit our bodies takes time and patience. It takes a particular kind of listening.
For the body to open and welcome us in we must come to the boundaries of our experience with open hands and without any agenda at all.
We must wait for the body to yield and open.
We must wait for this sacred invitation.
Being available for the body in this way has the potential to reveal a tremendous amount about how we relate to ourselves and the world.
In order to be willing to explore the unknown frontiers of the body we need to feel safe. That is why the first step is to establish an ever-present attitude of gentle acceptance and care, known as Loving Presence.
This loving presence is nourishing and rewarding in itself, and has the potential to awaken in us something essential.
It is by far the most powerful and important quality we can bring to any relationship, and it is essential for us to be able to embody the teachings of the wisdom traditions.
Each day we will explore more and more ways to soften, to release, to unwind, to gradually invite a natural ease, stability and openness to life.
A retreat in Bali is a great time to take stock and make space for something new and fresh to open in us.
There will be plenty of time in the program to explore local balinese life, to walk through the rice fields, to have a massage, to rest by the pool and to discover some of the many excellent restaurants in Ubud.
