Sometimes when you take yourself out of your normal, every day context, out of the roles in your life, out of the culture and paradigms that fill your thoughts and then throw yourself into the unknown- a new culture, new place, new experience- you discover a new part of yourself- that isn't new at all. You release the form and identity you have given yourself and come across you- free and boundless, a totally unique expression of All That Is.
Stop searching for health and wholeness outside of you. You are already enough, just as you are, right now. Come feel what that feels like, total acceptance of oneself and the whole of infinite possibilities.
This is an experience, not an expression. I recognize the divine in you which is also in me or I feel the place where we are One. When you connect in this way with others, without intention or expectation, just pure attention, the boundaries and judgments disappear and there is nothing but unity.
Whether you are new to Reconnective Healing or an experienced practitioner, you will experience life in a whole new way- as we play with the restorative frequencies of energy, light, and information. You will be able to feel your connection to others, to animals and plants, to the earth around, and to the entirety of the universe that is you. We will use Reconnective Healing to interact with local children, to enhance our daily yoga and meditation practice, and to increase our awareness of the present moment as it unfolds. Join our fabulous team of local guides, healers, chefs, and full-time people as we go into the unknown and discover balance and uncover our innate wholeness.
