Women’s Weekend Retreat: May 1-3, 2020
At the Living Juicy Women’s Spring Retreat we be exploring the real medicine of Tantra and tuning into ourselves and each other on the subtle realm. This is not about sex practices, although there may be some juicy discussions, the real Tantra is about finding the simple and subtle pleasures in all of life, and using the energy of pleasure and satisfaction to manifest our dreams.
Tune in to Nature • Tune in to Desire • Tune in to Spirit
Using practices such as yoga, mudra, mantra, mandala and more, will take us into the stillness of the heart where we will call forth and activate our dharma – or truest heart’s longing. From this place we will find our powerful intention or sankalpa and utilizing the practice of yoga nidra, we will imprint it on our subconscious. Participants will be given the tools to make lasting change and the work we do in the retreat will help immensely towards the fulfillment of life purpose and deep longings.
Living Juicy is learning to love ourselves, our family, and this earth so that we can live the juiciest, most fulfilling life possible.
The word Tantra: is Sanskrit and literally means, “a continuum, or unbroken stream [of energy].”
The term Tantra refers first (1) to the continuum of vital energy that sustains all existence, and second (2) to the class of knowledge and practices that harnesses that vital energy, thereby transforming the practitioner.
Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. The literal Sanskrit translation is the ‘science of life’. It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit and utilizes the elements available in all things to bring balance and well being.
In Sanskrit Yoga means ‘to yoke’ or to find union with your higher self. It is more than just stretching, yoga is a spiritual practice that incorporates many tools, all with the intent to help quiet the mind and prepare the body to connect deeply to the heart.
A mantra is a sacred utterance, a numinous sound, a syllable, word or phonemes, or group of words in Sanskrit that has psychological and/or spiritual powers. Mantra, whether chanted, whispered, or silently recited, is a powerful meditation and therapy tool.
A mudrā (muːˈdra; “seal”, “mark”, or “gesture”) is a symbolic or ritual gesture performed by the hands, often used in practicing Hinduism and Buddhism; it is a spiritual gesture that acts as an “energetic seal of authenticity”. Mudras act to stimulate different parts of the body involved with breathing and to affect the flow of energy in the body and even one’s mood.
