COVID-19 Update – 06.11.20

Due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and the closing of Borestone Audubon Sanctuary for the 2020 season, we have shifted this retreat to a Virtual format. If you were registered for this retreat onsite and would like to shift your registration to the Virtual format, please contact us. 

Join us online for three days of social silence, yoga, meditation, and a time to honor the Goddess energy within. Drawing from the wisdom traditions of Yoga and Tibetan Buddhism, we invite the divine feminine forth from within our beings through practices that inspire and evoke our feminine, creative energy.

Each morning we will greet the day with a Goddess meditation practice incorporating Devi mantras, a period of silent meditation, and a Kundalini yoga class. We will use meditation to open to the creative Goddess energy and connect with the earth. Morning Kundalini yoga classes will focus on gently building the inner agni (internal fire) to illuminate your true radiant nature.

Afternoon sessions will be focused on exploring the Dakini, “sky-dancer, space-goer,” a powerful aspect of the enlightened feminine in Tibetan Buddhism.  There will be study into the archetypes of the Dakinis through meditation, chanting, visualization and art and learn how they relate to our lives personally. Awakening to how our authentic feminine selves emerge is a key part of this process. There will be an evening spiritual talk, a Goddess ceremony and/or a period of silent meditation to close each day.

This three-night retreat begins with an evening session at 6 pm MST on Thursday, February 4th and ends at about mid-day on Sunday, February 7th after a morning class and closing session. This retreat is perfect for anyone with some prior yoga and meditation experience. If you have practiced yoga for awhile, but are new to meditation please feel free to contact us and check in.

What is a Virtual Retreat?
Our Virtual Retreat is a live-streaming ShivaShakti At-Home immersive retreat during which you will receive teachings, engage in guided practice, and connect with other participants through an easy-to-use online platform (Zoom). We encourage you to create a retreat environment during our days together, by setting aside these 3 days to be focused predominately on spiritual practice, creating a dedicated retreat space, removing yourself as much as possible from social media and other online work/communication with the exception of the online retreat, and avoiding trips. We invite you to sink into an inner retreat space in your own home with the support/guidance of our Online Retreat Format.

This retreat is meant to be attended live, however the entire retreat will be available in recorded format for registered participants after the retreat finishes. To receive 300-hr AYTT credit or YA CEs for this retreat, you must attend live.
