Celebrate your pure space and a great song will arise in your heart. It will be a song of awareness, it will be a song of meditation and it will fill your whole life with the music of silence, of peace.– Osho


In this elegant retreat
, we move in cycles of meditation and mystic practices that cleanse, heal, awaken and integrate all facets of our nature, opening the way for creativity and self-expression to flourish.

Together we create an energy field of awareness, an instrument of love that is shining with vital attunement. And through this, we enter into the very source of Being – clearing the way for essential insights to crystallize – illuminating what we are called to live, to give (or give up) to fulfill and embody the call of the soul. This is the heart of Voice & Self-Expression.

Through silent meditation we release our grip on identifying with thoughts that toss us constantly from the past to the future, allowing the mind to rest and settle in the present moment so that we can fully experience the simple beauty of life as it is, one breath at a time.

Through movement meditation we release the accumulated tensions and stresses of ‘doing’ and pushing ourselves, thereby renewing and energizing the entire body/mind/personality system. This allows our essential nature to circulate and harmonizes the whole psyche – body-mind-heart-soul-spirit – freeing us to be fully alive in every dimension of being.

By opening and offering our voice in song, in poetry, in writing, and in inquiry we make ourselves an instrument, dynamically attuned with the pure essence of being; ‘my will’ and ‘Thy Will’ join in glorious orchestration. This is the Way of the Heart – where the magic happens.

Through Essential Constellations, we become vehicles of compassion and awareness, the real blood and bones of embodied love, creating tremendous intimacy, insight, healing, and freedom, allowing us to be truly at home with ourselves, others, and the world.
