Connecting To Source: Yoga, Meditation, and Ritual

With Mara Branscombe

August 23 - 28, 2021

Since ancient times, the human collective has aligned with the seasons, the elements, the rhythms of the sun, the moon, and the earth as a way to source pure energy and connect to one’s inner compass. The mind-body science of yoga, combined with the practice of meditation, breath-work, and the alchemy of earth based rituals creates a channel that leads to present moment awareness, mind-body-spirit integration, and a wild transformation within.
As the summer cycle comes to its completion, we can honour the earth’s dynamic time of expansion, growth, abundance and harvest. As we attune to the earth’s rhythm, may we take this opportunity to embody a parallel path of healing, connection and radiance.
Join us on an unforgettable 5 day celebration discovering the art of breath, the healing of yoga, the transformative powers of shamanic practices, and the mindful awareness of meditation. We will be cultivating a deeper connection to the realm of spirit, and with a like-minded community to celebrate the gifts we can share with the world.
During our time together, you will experience:
  • guided meditation
  • vinyasa and restorative yoga
  • movement practices to increase inner radiance
  • guided pranayama (breath work)
  • outdoor shamanic practices
  • guided journal sessions
  • chanting and spirit circles: sharing, visioning, and fire ceremony
This program is for anyone who wishes to connect with their highest self, regardless of age or experience.

Mara’s understanding of the yoga practice and calming presence allows her to connect with every student and support them on their yoga journey, whether it is a class of 1 or 1,000. – Lindsay C.
