With the June retreat, we ended our very powerful season in the Caribbean. Every retreat has brought visitors from all over the world, and this time they came from the US, Spain, Greece, Germany and of course Costa Rica.
INTEGRATION: SUPPORTING THE WORK OF THE MEDICINE
A highlight of the retreat was the Shivananda Yoga sessions. They remind us of the value in staying connected to the body during the work with the medicine, especially through breath control. We are also blessed with the company of a gifted reflexologist that pinpoints and moves energy and emotional blocks by working with pressure points in the feet. This energy opening has become an integral part of the work with the medicine as it helps us connect very deeply with the information received in the treatments.
WORKING WITH “LOS ABUELOS”
The retreat ends with celebrating with “Los Abuelos” (the Grandfather medicines, San Pedro Cactus and Peyote). The group of thirty people formed an intimate bond and we enjoyed beautiful music and dance until midnight. After the celebration we ended in a traditional Mayan Sweat Lodge or “Temascal”, which was built in the morning by some members of the group.
REMEMBERING THAT WE ARE ONE FAMILY
We thank with all our hearts our brothers and sisters that shared this magical experience with us. Our mission is to bring people together as family and create a safe and loving space where we can teach and learn from each other. We are all on the same Journey
