Program

All of life is creation. It is people's nature to create new ideas, and whether you are designing your bedroom, your six month plan, or your life, the way you harness your life force and human creativity is key to unlocking your most expansive version of yourself.

Accessing your natural state of flow comes from deep connection and unity of your body, mind, and spirit. When life feels stagnant, painful or disconnected, it is often the product of overthinking and lack of presence, causing resistance, worry, fear and indecision. Aligning yourself with the movement of life force through you frees up your creative impulse and evokes a limitless state, where manifestation happens effortlessly and things seem to just flow.

By creating space, you allow new creation. Fed by wide open views, simple and sustainable living and energy-activating practices such as yoga, dance and ceremony, you spark the wonder back into your daily experience. With a schedule designed to help you open up to the flow of expression, and a setting that induces awe, this is an opportunity to truly come back to your center.
