Yoga & Meditation Retreat with Amber Tande & Colin Patterson
7 Days. 7 Chakras. 7 Deities.
Mar de Jade Retreat Center
February 21st-28th, 2014
Come join us in Chacala Mexico for a super inspired 7 day retreat, at this gorgeous oceanfront retreat center nestled between the tropical jungle mountainside and the Pacific Ocean, on a 17 acre organic farm!!
Chacala is a small, authentic Mexican town on the ocean with a long, soft sand beach and calm gentle waters. We fell in love with this amazing place last year while making our way to the sacred site of Alta Vista.
Together, we’ll enter 7 Days of many ways of weaving through the 7 major chakras, and 7 deities; diving deep into the practices by playing, praying, moving, breathing, chanting, retreating, contemplating, story telling, resting & connecting; focusing from our deepest roots to the highest branches 1 day, 1 chakra, 1 deity at a time. All in the presence of sweet, authentic Mexican culture and warm ocean waters.
Our week together will be a deep and playful exploration of energy, through physical practices, a sprinkling of scientific theory, beautiful mythologies, and basic shamanic work. We’ll anchor the teachings with personal practices to help us each understand, hold, utilize, and release energy.
We’ll also explore how seven major deities can be accessed as unique and powerful energies to inspire the Divine expression of the soul through the ecstatic interplay of form and formless, seen and unseen.
Each day will include 2 yoga practices suitable for all levels and will be thoughtfully sequenced throughout the day and the week to maintain a steady & sustainable pace.
