San Diego Spiritual Retreat Center welcomes you to a retreat with psychic and spiritual healing classes, meditation, breathwork, singing, journaling, dancing, walking and being still in nature, and yoga and spiritual development. Also, using channeled processes and powerful healing tools, they do energy field clearing, grounding, and clear the auric field for each guest attending to help sustain and experience peace, harmony, well-being, and balance in your daily life.
Energies blocking your light may cause physical and / or emotional pain. In clearing the auric field, you will learn to sustain a clear space to experience increasing well-being and you will learn effective energetic healing and clearing solutions, processes, and prayers. You will learn to create sacred space, cut chakra chords, clear spaces in your home, workspace, and land for personal use after leaving the retreat.
The retreat starts with an orientation, discussion, and learning breathwork. Your hosts believe that meditation is a more advanced form of breathwork and that is why you will start with breathwork. During breathwork, each guest is monitored with biofeedback measuring the heart rate variability, which in turn, measures stress levels. Some people have suggested this breath-work as being "meditation for the 21st century". You will dive in deeper than this and meditate because this is when guests come to directly experience feeling their own soul and many do so, for the first time. Attunement is the key.
Meditation and sitting for spirit is the gateway to God. San Diego Spiritual Retreat Center have had many guests in the past come who have never meditated. Jennifer offers guided and un-guided meditations, following the biofeedback.
For journaling, guests are given powerful questions to aid in personal and spiritual development. You will learn three powerful and transformative songs. If the songs get stuck in your head, it is a good thing! And we send you home with a CD of the songs. All guests participate in a form of yoga that is unique to the center and unique for this particular retreat.
You will do a dancing flow form of yoga with songs unique to each of the seven main chakras. They teach and model 14 restorative Hatha yoga asanas but encourage guests to feel the music in their bodies and move in whatever ways suit them best. Additionally, they offer powerful joint exercises developed by Hiroshi Motoyama to open acupuncture channels.
You are here to change your life and change your brain. To have a more positive and lasting change, it is essential to step out and away from your current environment for some time to allow that change and learning to happen, so you are not constantly reminded of who you are or were. The world is your mirror, so when you change your consciousness, your outer world changes and in this retreat, they will teach you how to change the consciousness which happens in the brain guided by the heart through meditation. When you create a new mind, you create a new self, and a new personality, which creates a new personal reality. New experiences change your biology and signal new genes and new ways, and you can teach your body chemically what your mind is understanding.
You will learn about the importance of meditation, diet, exercise, relationships, time in nature, recreation and service / contribution in your life which create rhythm. They listen to music and do light yoga and discuss collectively the work they do and what others do to unwind. Working long hours depletes creative energy. Your hosts also believe that who comes to these retreats is meant to leave with friends, possibly life-long friends, because success works best in clusters! The best success is an open heart united with the universe! They strive to have between five and seven guests to make it personalized for each guest.
Giving yourself the feel-good feeling of four days and three nights will allow you to journey deeper and attune into the essence of you, that eternal part of you may call your soul. Doing meditation once does not create a lasting effect and that is why retreats are beneficial. You have to do it over and over again and repeat the meditation experience with repetition. Neurologically and chemically this conditions the brain, conscious mind, and body to know how to meditate. During the retreat, you practice over and over again so you no longer have to think about breathing or meditation. The body no longer needs to think about it, because it is automatic and innate in you and you have practiced so many times you don’t have to think about it. People have all the biological and neurological machinery to do this and this is called neuroplasticity.
Being still allows people to feel wholeness. Incessant thinking is the barrier to true Oneness Consciousness. With relaxing guided meditations and crystal bowl sound bath healings, you will also learn the benefits of your chakras. Chakras are energy centers in your body and having them open and balanced benefits your overall health-mental, emotional, and spiritual and opens the path to emancipation and manifestation.
Many guests leave with a new awareness of their true gifts from Spirit.
The main teachers are here for approximately four hours in the first part of each day and in the afternoon time, there are other staff and teachers.
All the classes have paper handouts.
Guests will connect with nature this way. The Japanese call this Shinrin Yoku, which translates to “forest bathing” and guests will partake in this. Shinrin Yoku is proven to be beneficial for mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical balancing. Following these powerful “forest baths” you will feel better overall, and particularly experience a deeper relaxation response during the retreat, feeling more calm and refreshed, with better clarity and creativity as you allow the nature to feed your soul.
During this program, you will visit the 3,800 acre Santa Ysabel Preserve for a peaceful walk.
Located in Wynola, a small subdivision in between Julian and Santa Ysabel, is also home to wonderful antique and farmers produce markets. The surrounding area is rich with artists and crafts people, many of whom open their studios throughout all of the seasons.
