"The sublime states of friendliness, compassion, joy, and equanimity are collectively known as the Brahma Viharas, or the Four Immeasurables.
Advocated by both the Buddha and the yoga-sage Patanjali, these qualities of true love lead to a deep, abiding sense of intimacy and inner peace. In this Mindfulness Yoga retreat, we explore the practices taught by these two masters, cultivating our inherent capacity to receive and offer unconditional love first to ourselves, and then to all beings. When suffused with this love, our true body is seen to be the unbounded universe itself with no separation.
This is the fruit of authentic yoga.
Mindfulness Yoga incorporates posture practice, meditation, relaxation, pranayama, and dharma discussion to deepen and expand your connection with the unbounded body of love.
This retreat is for everyone wishing to deepen and expand their capacity for true intimacy, beginning with the self. Through easily accessible practices, everyone can learn to overcome conditioned limitations and whatever wounds they may have suffered to find the deep, healing source of love that abides within."
