Creativity as Spiritual Practice: A Women’s Yoga and Writing Retreat in Mexico
February 29, 2016 - March 07, 2016
Inspired by Marion Woodman’s devotion to the Mystery and the wisdom of the body and Jung’s exploration of the unconscious, the retreat’s intention is to restore and deepen connection to one’s inner life through daily yoga practice in a protected, natural environment that supports opening to and working with creative impulse.
Dynamic inspiration links us to the source of our being and it’s this essential union that guides our creative lives and nourishes our souls. Our days will begin with yoga and meditation and after a silent breakfast we will gather in circle to explore the wellspring of our dreams before writing from the rising images and feelings. The morning session will spark the day’s journey and the afternoon will take the imaginative gifts into the body and further onto the page. We will practice yoga and meditation together, write together, and read together in our morning and afternoon sessions with a long lunch break for relaxation. In the evenings, we will gather for dinner.
Our journey will follow a natural deepening into the imaginal realm with the intention of opening to new inspiration while releasing old stories, turning instead toward the emerging impulse, the spark that moves us and encourages us to trust ourselves and the words already written inside us. Our work is to sanctify the time and space we need to bring those words alive and to seed this practice in our daily lives.
