This intensive retreat touches all levels helping you anchor into your individual nature as a unique expression of “one” universal power. In Chinese medicine, that “one” power is viewed as the two complementary energies of Yin and Yang. Yin power is like the Earth, which is substantial, grounded, and contracted. It is a receptive, magnetic feminine energy relative to Yang which is masculine, active, stimulating, and outgoing.
Opening to Yin power gives you access to your deep, hidden reservoirs of energy. Letting down and letting in offer you the direct experience of original source energy. On this retreat, you awaken to Yin as the feminine, gathering, harmonizing, cohesive power of life itself. Using Restorative yoga, meridian-based breath, and movement practices, you strengthen the nurturing, grounding Mother energy which activates the blood and fluid production, regulation, and circulation.
Theories of Tibetan yoga and Chinese medicine are explored as the foundation for the practices. Free time during the day is built in for contemplation, rest, time in nature and individual healing sessions. Evening talking circles support you to apply the teachings to your own life and help integrate your insights. This retreat starts on Sunday, 29 October, at 17:00 with welcome gathering followed by a shared meal. The conclusion is on Sunday, November 5, at 12:30.
