Seasonal Daylong Retreats

Just Listed Social Media Graphic.png

An offering of daylong retreats to align with the season exploring heart-centered self-care and compassionate contemplative practices of yoga and meditation, informed by Ayurveda, Indo-Tibetan Buddhist meditation and philosophy, and the bodhisattva attitude. The days will begin with a 2-hr session that includes moving our bodies in yoga flow, inward practices of pranayama and meditation, as well as connecting with each other in our shared space. A home-cooked seasonally-inspired lunch will be served. There will be time for chatting, walking and napping. During the afternoon session, we’ll move more slowly, soaking deeply in our embodied and conscious experience. 

Winter Warrior: Restoring
Saturday, January 5, 2019 | 10a–4p

Reset after the holidays and pause as the new year begins. The season is dry, cold, and hard. We’ll explore ways to increase warmth, fluidity and softness while taking advantage of the season that is begging us to take more rest. 

Spring Warrior: Emerging
Saturday, April 13, 2019 | 10a–4p

As the promise of fresh growth emerges, the heavy, slow, and dull energy of late winter gives way to increasing light, movement and wakefulness. Shaking off winter and arising into fresh possibility with ease-fulness is beckoning. 

Summer Warrior: Radiance
Saturday, July TBA

The season of heat, intensity, sharpness, and invigorating outdoor activity we balance with relaxing, cooling and calm qualities. The expansiveness of the season also calls our heart to take a break and chill. 

Autumn Warrior: Grounding
Saturday, October TBA

Time to ground, recommit to a rhythm and stay warm as the environment begins to cool, the dry leaves rustle in the wind and life is busy with fall activity. Balancing the busy-ness of life with the letting go of summer and gracefully moving towards the winter season once again. 

Cost is $90 per retreat payable in advance.

I was born in the beautiful Australian highlands and have lived in Boston twenty-five years. I am grateful for this precious life. Even and especially when life sucks and is really hard. We are interdependent with all beings and I believe, in essence, everyone wishes to happy. * Practicing yoga since 1987 and teaching since 2000. * Trained four years in the Alexander Technique and teaching since 2014 . * Have completed a three-month solo meditation retreat while staying in a hermitage in the Mount Everest region of Nepal. * Love to grow vegetables, herbs and flowers. * Co-habitat with a husband and two cats -- Bella Bodhicitta and Gonpo Maxx. * Volunteer in rabbit rescue and have at least a dozen house bunnies at any one time, many of them fosters. * Night owl. * Love to chant. * My wish is to benefit others from a heart of compassion, wisdom, and power.
