The Joy, Ease and Aliveness of Being Spring Yoga & Meditation Retreat May 2 - 4, 2014 w/ Surya Rolling Meadows

With the support of yoga postures, pranayama, restorative poses, yin yoga, meditation, silence and unstructured time in nature, this yoga retreat will be an opportunity to experience and explore the peace and joy of being.

Most of us lead very busy lives. Demands of work, family and the complexity of simply living consume most of our waking hours. From early childhood we’ve been conditioned to achieve, improve and generally be more productive. Modern life with computers, cell phones and convenience food further feeds our addiction to a fast-paced life. While much of this activity has value, it can become unbalanced. There is little time to understand the art of being.

Much of what we “do” is an attempt to find wholeness, fulfillment, satisfaction and peace in our lives. When this “doing” is out of balance with “being”, the more we do, the more we seek, the less peace and fulfillment we experience. In our hearts we know that true happiness does not come from doing more or having more things, but we need to periodically pause and take time to reset our priorities and connect with our being. The ultimate purpose and essence of Yoga is to experience the peace of our true nature, which can only be known when we stop seeking to improve, change or move away from what is right here now. Magically this peace that is always here appears when we stop becoming and surrender to simply being.

"If you want to be happy, be" ~Leo Tolstoy

"The very source of all happiness is your beingness. Be there. Be still in your beingnesss." ~Nisargadatta
