Sacred Breathwork, Instinctual Yoga, & Sound Healing
With Ananda Bologna, Ashby Underwood and Flournoy Holmes
September 7 - 9, 2018
Experience a powerful transformation of feeling more whole and refreshed than you have in years through certified breathwork, yoga & sound healing. In our 4th annual fall retreat, we invite you to give yourself the gift of sacred space where you will meet clarity, simplicity, truth and love within. Ananda, Ashby & Flournoy combine over 80 years of professional healing arts experience and devotion to human potential to hold your personal journey as their highest service for the weekend. No matter how the unconscious mind is interpreting your life circumstances, this retreat will offer practices through breath, movement, and sound that help you walk with the knowing of when to act, when to pause, when to go within, and when to ask for help. You will experience a deep self understanding where ever you are needing that clarity in your life through these sacred practices of self love and union with your true nature which is love. On Sunday, take your alive awareness back in to your relationships, life experience, and personal dynamics. This is known as “Lila” or play in Sanskrit, and it is our sacred play together that can move mountains as we shift our perspective.

About Rebirthing Breathwork:
Rebirthing Breathwork is a healing modality that teaches you to gently breathe yourself through tension, pain, drama, fear and trauma, until you reach peace and relaxation. Rebirthing heals the breathing mechanism which means people release and heal a big part of “what they were holding on to” and then flow freely in their bodies (physical body, mental-emotional bodies, and energetic body). When we release the breath, we melt the main layers of tension and stress due to past emotional traumas, infancy and birth memories. This experience can be described as an effortless merging of the inhale and exhale; the breathe breathes you. When a person has this experience they will breathe more fully and freely for the rest of their life.
