Our first retreat ever at Blue Spirit was July of 2016 so we are just about 2 years in! It has been so amazing for me to witness and help to give birth to these retreats and to see how they have grown and touched so many peoples lives!
Each retreat I look forward with excitement and always with the intention of how can these retreats improve - How can the people coming get the most out of these retreats and how can this week really be the catalyst for them to move back into their lives with more love and a strong desire to liberate themselves completely in this life and realize there true nature within.
These past months I have been gifted by the Universe with time off and time for reflection and inner growth and healing. A lot of new ideas and ways to improve the retreat has come and I am really excited to share this in our upcoming retreats. One of the main focuses I will be working with people on the retreat is a daily spiritual practice in the east sometimes referred to as 'Sadhana'
This could be sitting in mediation for 20 minutes in the morning or weaving or yoga or prayer or connecting with the spirits. Whats important is no what you do but finding what mosts support you to come back to Essence Love - The Big Love of the Universe
For me I have found that the practices of meditation have been most supportive for rooting me back to my heart and to my essence.
In these upcoming retreats we will be giving you different tools and practices throughout our time together and working together to create a practice which you feel excited to bring into your daily life and too use it as a tool to ground and help integrate the deep healing we have done with Taita Juan and the plant medicines!
Its important to make the shift from what many feel as 'oh no' I have to sit in meditation to 'oh yes!!!' what a joy and how lucky am I to have to the time today to sit and really look at what it means to exist as a Human Being on this planet
What is the truth of my existence and how can I live its implications? What would it take for me to awaken my heart and live as the great sages and teachers of the day live?
It is a great gift to have this spark of light in your heart struck in this lifetime - Don't let it go out! Feed it with love, courage, forgiveness - Its the one thing really worth investigating and looking at in this life!
A deep bow to you all and so grateful to life, my teacher Taita Juan, to the teachers who have preserved the deeper teachings of meditations from all over the world and to our ancestors!
