Qigong and Crystal Singing Bowl Healing
Friday, June 22 with Isabelita Papa

Qigong consists of gentle, flowing movements that are both joyful and deeply relaxing. The overall effect of this ancient movement practice is to reduce mental stress and physical tension, increasing health and well-being. We will learn gentle healing Qigong movements, stretching exercises, and tapping, massaging, and breathing techniques that help to boost the immune system, increase energy, manage stress, improve focus, and build stamina while feeling peaceful and balanced at the same time. We will then use Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls to harmonize healing energy flow in the dis-ease areas and clear the mind for meditation.

The Human Journey: Walking the Spiritual Path with Pamela Weiss
Saturday, June 30

We live in increasingly fraught and divisive times. What is needed to meet the challenges of climate change, economic disparity, and entrenched systems of racism, misogyny and oppression with clarity, integrity, and kindness? This day retreat will use stories from the life of the Buddha, Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, and the myth of Inanna as context to discover the shape and direction of our own spiritual path. We will weave together dharma talks, guided meditation, reflection, interactive exercises and ritual. You will leave with a map of your own spiritual path and aspirations, and new insights and practices for going forward. Learn more >
