Do you long for a deep connection with yourself, nature, the divine feminine, and a break from your everyday life? If so, this epic journey is for you! This is a journey of a lifetime, one that invites you into deep positive change and opens you to a reverence for all that is. Come with Ashram of Arts to discover a place with the power to heal and open energy pathways like no other place can, as you explore yogic practices in the setting of their origin - in Mother Nature.
During this backpacking yoga retreat, you will be staying in a tent on Mother Earth throughout your stay in the mountains for three nights. Please let Ashram of Arts know if you are fine with sharing a tent or otherwise. Solo tent option is also possible.
You meet up at a designated spot and caravan to the trailhead. Beforehand, by email, you'll receive a "Backpacking Gear Check List", "Wilderness Safety Guidelines" and "Leave-No-Trace Backpacking" information. Also, before the pilgrimage, Mountain Shakti will connect with each person by Skype or phone to go over your gear and to field any questions.
During your first night together you will:
Come together in a welcome Shakti ceremony
Go over and get your gear together
Enjoy dinner in the wilds
Moon and star gaze
Celebrate the full moon on a high mountain ridge. A time to rejoice, coming together in sisterhood.
-Day 2 - Goddess Parvati, ultimate yogini
On your first full day in the mountains, you will enjoy breakfast and practice Devi Yoga flow. Afterwards, you will trek through meadows of blueberries and forest, ascending and opening up to expansive and awe-inspiring views of Mt. Baker, where you will explore and practice the teachings of Goddess Parvati and what she has taught about the embodied yogini.
You will learn:
After morning Devi Yoga flow and a chai masala tea breakfast before panoramic views of Mt. Baker, you will head out for a day hike up to an old 1930's fire outlook. You will pass a chain of tarn lakes welcoming you to goddess Tara's shores, where you will meditate, lunch, swim, write, and sunbathe before you hike up to the outlook with stunning views of the mother mountain as you go and then returning back to camp.
You will learn:
You will practice Devi Yoga flow with the rising sun before a skyline of endless mountain peaks. After breakfast, you will hike back, nourished by abundant beauty of high ridge views and open expanse meadows, along with drinking from the many streams of snowfield water along the way. Experiencing first hand what it means to be nourished by the natural elements, beginning your journey back towards home, refreshed and renewed.
