Daily Asana classes and workshops in Shamanic Journeying
The Living Project wants you to have a travel experience that stretches your soul. For us, it’s not enough to just take you on an typical yoga vacation; our intention is that you have an experience that opens you to new experiences, possibilities and personal growth.
In addition to daily open-level Vinyasa classes with Domenic, on this retreat Jonathan will instruct you in Shamanic Journeying.
Shamanic Journeying is an ancient meditative practice designed to open you to the ‘hidden realms’ of Spirit and Nature. You will journey to the Upper and Lower worlds (the ‘places’ where spirits reside from a shamanic perspective) in order to meet spirit guides and power animals. You will learn to access the healing power within (and learn to share this healing with others) and to connect with invisible forces of the Island.
Shamanism is a path of direct revelation, and this retreat will take your spiritual life to new heights and connection.
We will also offer a transformational Breathwork Ceremony designed to heighten your consciousness and then end the retreat with a fire ceremony, empowering your new goals and aspirations.
You may also choose to do a private healing session with Jonathan (www.mindbodyspiritnyc.com) for an additional fee. These arrangements can be made in Costa Rica.
