Connecting to Source: Yoga, Meditation, Ritual

With Mara Branscombe

July 14 - 19, 2023

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 into fullness, 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 deep self love.

Join us on an unforgettable 5-day celebration discovering the art of breath, the healing of yoga, the transformative powers of soul care practices, and the mindful awareness of meditation. We will be cultivating a deeper connection to the realm of spirit, the lunar cycle, the 5 elements, 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, earth based ritual practices
  • guided journal sessions
  • chanting and spirit circles: sharing, visioning, and fire and water ceremony

This program is for anyone who wishes to connect with their true self, regardless of age or experience.

Exactly what I needed to reignite my love of yoga, meditation and ritual. Mara is a true shining light. This program will have lasting benefits for me hence those who come in contact with me and my community. Thank you so much for this life altering opportunity. – 2022 Participant
