Costa Rica Pranafication Open

Thursday, July 25, 2013
Dear Friends,

We are so happy to be returning to our favorite New Year retreat on the sea in Nosara, Costa Rica. This is a powerful spot for a New Year Pranafication - where a daily immersion of prana flow yoga, meditation, pranadandayoga, kalari, mantra bonfires, massage, healing papaya and fruits, natural Tican cuisine meet the elements - healing ocean surf, ecologically protected beach, open sky, ocean bonfires and fresh prana.

Registration is opening today - every year this retreat is full and this year we have two weeks beginning with the Winter Solstice but half the rooms so connect with our great yogadventurer, Kristi Mosley, who has been to Costa Rica with her beloved Dan for five  years in a row to assure your place (special discount for two weeks)! Dan learned to surf in Costa and is now soaring on the outside. We are grateful to the amazing community at Blue Spirit and from around the world that makes this pilgrimage with us every year. Blue Spirit has many solar-powered rooms and is an incredible example of being in harmony with the environment.

Please connect to Kristi (contact info below) as first come first serve if you are interested.

For the Waves,

All love

Shiva

New Moon - Ritual Moonday Prayers and Pujya Swami at Exhale

Tuesday, July 09, 2013
New Moon - Ritual moonday Prayers
 
Our altar and prayers have our leaf from the Bodhi Tree pilgrimage site know as the Mahabodhi temple - the site of the original great-grandaughter Bodhi tree where Buddha was awakening. Demetri and I have both meditated and gone into prostration practice on the open prostration boards around the temple. A pilgrim was killed there and monks injured. It is hard to imagine this place bombed by extremist as it is a place of great peace and home to dozens and dozens of monasteries all over the world.
 
Even though in my body and in my home, I feel incredible joy and new inspiration this new moon, I feel there is so much to pray for from Bodh Gaya to Bodhnath (where the floods took place recently), Egypt to South Africa. We are now entering the Dakshinaya, the six-month period towards waning light in the Winter Solstice. We must bring the creativity and the destruction, love and devastation together and remember, and remember. Listening deep tonight as we prepare for our Prana Danda Teacher Training and first Exhale classes. The darshan for Pujya Swami will support the recent floods that effected 100,000 people and many sacred sites like Kedarnath and Bodnath.
 
Let us make space for this new moon wisdom and offer the joy fully for the living and the dead.
Please see our offerings this week at Exhale and beyond. India and Costa Rica, our fall and new year yogadventure-pilgrimages on the healing oceans is below.

Om Mani Padme Hum
All Love,

Shiva
