If you’re on my Northern California email list, you might know that last Sunday I held a daylong retreat in my studio called GATHER AT THE GOLDMINE.
We spent the day digging deep into our inner riches to learn more about WHAT we wanted and HOW to get it.
Let me just say this retreat was so awesome it was very much a (re) treat for me as well. Meaning, it changed me.
I woke up the next morning feeling SUUUUUPER inspired and crystal clear annnnnd…..
Writing you today to announce that I’ll be doing a virtual version of this retreat!!!
THE STORY OF *WHY this retreat, these practices:::
You know, originally I considered doing a retreat in my studio about self care during stressful times.
And then I realized, “No! Plenty of talented people are already offering self care right now. And self-care is very important, but…”
I felt very strong about discovering and nurturing possibilities rather than overcoming negative situations. Because who wouldn’t choose to thrive rather than just survive? And because we can only change what we can actually envision.
BOOM. That was that.
I was so inspired to help people envision their deepest, most heartfelt wishes that I scheduled the retreat for less than 2 weeks away.
And by deepest, heartfelt wishes, I mean the wishes we truly long for.
Not those drab To-Do List Goals.
But our wildest dreams, the ones that make our soul sing.
And possibly the wishes that others have told us we can never realistically reach.
Or the wishes we’ve talked ourselves out of again and again, out of self-limiting beliefs and self-sabotage.
Yep. The meditative imagination is powerful. Limitless, in fact.
So, last Sunday, we worked on uncovering the buried truth about what we really want.
And right away we began strategizing and embodying those truths as unfolding dreams and working intentions.
HERE’S A FEW THINGS PEOPLE SAID AFTER THE RETREAT:::
“I realized within the first 45 minutes details about my goal that actually surprised me. I also tapped into roots of my goal that had been previously hidden and blocked.”
“My wishes now feel implanted in my body and I have the sense that they’re germinating like seeds.”
“I’ve received quite a bit of coaching around goalsetting and have done visioning numerous times, always with decent results– but never like today. Your approach brought me so much clarity plus the process felt so natural and easy.”
We begin with very specific Self- Inquiry practices designed to unearth a deeper sense of how we really feel and what we want, but are also specially designed to prime us for the Visioning exercises that come next.
Visioning practices give us the power to vividly imagine what success truly looks and feels like to us. And what strategic plan will help us get the process going.
We’ll then use yin yoga and breath to help ground all these ideas down into our bodies, where we are incarnate and manifest.
Other practices such as mudra, mantra and Yoga Nidra provide other ways to observe and realize these wishes.
You can do this work every day — or once a week — or a little bit whenever you get to it. And skip whatever you want to skip. Do over and over whatever turns you on!
And, yes, you’ll have the option to purchase lifetime access.
