Join our annual Thanksgiving retreat to tend your heart fire as the center of wisdom, soul satisfaction, and most of all the transforming power of love. For many years, we have retreated to the warm springs of Esalen during the Thanksgiving weekend for a ritual deepening and renewal of the heart fire. This popular retreat always changes and yet is constant in the regeneration of the ‘body of love.
From our physiology to spiritual realization, tending the fire of love is one of the highest and most regenerative practices we can offer ourselves, our partners, families, and the world. This practice releases a positive cascade that elevates every aspect of being alive. In a distressed world, tending the heart fire is the practical awakening of the regenerating power of the body of love as a living practice in yoga and daily life.
Together we will explore:
· Prana Flow Movement Alchemy: Energetic Vinyasa Ritual Practice (morning)
· Mudra, Mantra, and Yoga Nidra (Deep Relaxation) Meditation
· Ayurvedic and Tantric practices for Cultivating Ojas
· Fire-ritual under the night sky (weather permitting)
The retreat is open to experienced practitioners and all yogadventurers familiar with the sun salutations.

Vinyasa is a natural sequence unfolding with creative intelligence – a conscious evolution connecting each moment with unifying breath. We explore embodying and living yoga in full spectrum – sun to moon, wild to sublime, fullness to simplicity, action and being. There is yoga for everyone.” – Shiva Rea
