Entering Stillness - Winter Solstice Yoga Retreat 2009
The winter solstice is considered by many cultures around the world to be one of the most sacred times for entering stillness. Darkness is embraced on the days leading up to the solstice, awaiting the return of the light. This is a time of deep receptivity, an honoring of the great turn of the Earth toward the creative power of the Sun. I invite you to enter into retreat with me, to honor the earth's movements, as well as your own inner movements. There is no better time of year for this practice of peaceful observation.
The retreat will begin Friday evening and end Sunday afternoon. We will be entering ritual practice together throughout the weekend with silence, yoga asana, meditation, breath explorations, creative process, reflection and time on the Earth. Throughout the weekend Chris Neal will be preparing and serving organic ayurvedic and macrobiotic influenced meals, which will be very healing, cleansing and nurturing for the body during this retreat.
