Inner Yoga & Sound Immersion 2021

This Retreat in Kings Canyon National Park in early August was a truly extraordinary event! Putting together a workshop of this type within the lingering shadow of the Covid pandemic was a bit like diving off a high cliff into deep water with no life vest. The Universal Divine smiled on us in everyway, for this I am beyond grateful.

Far Horizon’s Retreat Camp is situated in a fantastically beautiful section of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The photos give an impression, but to be there is magical. Our group was an intimate gathering of hardy beautiful “peeps” who blossomed like the mystical lotus lily over the 4 days we shared. The staff of Far Horizons was top notch, the accommodations (despite the spiders and mice!) were rustic camp comfortable, and the vegetarian/vegan kitchen was fantastic. We shared inspired asana classes, philosophy discussions, and amazing Sound Bath Meditations; interwoven with hiking and sightseeing adventures. Thanks to all of you who made this happy event possible! AND El and I have been asked to return in summer of 2022!! Mark those calendars.

Wishing you all a safe journey into the remainder of this year, thinking ahead to 2022, please keep the faith that the Universe is providing what we All need in response to the energies we are All creating, aka “What goes around comes around”. Choosing Light and Love ☮🕉✝☸✡☯💜

Kings Canyon Yoga and Sound Retreat

Wow! What a year we have all lived through! Such tough lessons, but with many wonderful new life developments along the way. Prayers to all those who have suffered loss. Healing can take time, I hope everyone is supported in all necessary ways.

As our country reopens most of us will be ready to make plans for some type of adventure. Being cooped up for all these months has everyone ready to roam. I am planning to offer a Summer Yoga Retreat in Kings Canyon National Park at the Far Horizons Retreat Center in August. I will be co- presenting with a fantastic Sound Healer and Wellness Designer from Los Angeles, El Larson. Since Kings Canyon borders Sequoia National Park , it is really a two for one National Park Experience. We will have a meditative yoga practice to start the day, plenty of free time for exploration in the Parks, and finish the day with an evening Sound Bath program. Far Horizons is quite rustic, but the natural beauty is stupendous and great vegetarian meals are included with the accommodations. Please check the flyer below, contacting El or me for more in depth information.

Let’s put some Roar into 2021 ! Love to you All, Namaste

Family Visiting in 2020, Emerald Isle, NC

2020, the year of big changes for all!  A very welcome change to my life in San Diego is the wonderful reduction of freeway traffic, most likely the result of working and schooling from home.  And for airport traffic? On a recent trip to visit family members in NC, I was relieved to find that social distancing and the increased travel restrictions have made for easier cross country travel. We have to look for the silver lining wherever we can!

Here are photos of a trip to Emerald Isle Beach, which is on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Two of my brothers and I had a nice reunion there. Fishing and barbecue are big past times!  I was also able to  visit with some of my in-law relatives who live and work near the Camp Lejeune Marine base in Jacksonville, NC. It has been some years since visiting any of my family, therefore once again, I am honoring the silver lining of the Covid-19 months. (You can hover over the photos for a caption.)

These are very uncertain times for everyone. If we can take a few moments to remember the suffering of everyone and “walk” in our neighbors shoes for a few steps, could we come closer to realizing the unity of the Global Human Family in which we reside? Many blessings for peace and safety to you all.

Namaste
