Tuning the physical body to raise awareness of inner and outer worlds, Beyond the Veil prepares access to spaces beyond the physical well-known reality, to altered states of consciousness.

The purpose of this immersion is to invite you to dive deep into your inner reality, connecting with nature, exploring inner truths, going beyond the veil, merging the subconscious with conscious.

We study two systems essential to merging these two realities. One system being lucid dreaming to access the subconscious. The second being the chakra system for it is a complete package providing the tools to tune our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies.  Allowing us to access higher states of consciousness that then enable us to go beyond the veil.

We encourage and hold space for stillness and connection to nature in its most raw form.  Many times, maybe even all the time, the best thing one can do to connect or recenter and align is to simply lie naked on mother Earth, letting the elements heal and upgrade you to a whole new level of connection.

In the first 3 weeks, we will work with the elements in a logical, artistic, physical, and meditative way. Starting with the first week we immerse ourselves into the elements of earth and water, connecting to the forces of gravity and fluidity. Transitioning to fire and air the second week, we will study combustion and repulsion, forces resulting in transformation and liberation. The third week is governed by the ether and the mind element – exploring infinite possibilities followed by balancing dualities, our ability to make decisions. In the third week, we go into the depths of inner realms where we embrace 5 days of silence – time for you and (infinite) space to connect.  As we approach new moon that week, it is the perfect time to get quiet and go inward, and set intentions for what you want to grow. During the 3rd week (the week of silence) and the last week, space is held and facilitated to explore creative expression, unlocking inhibitions of the right brain, and connecting even more to the spirit of mother nature. The last week is left to enjoy space created, bringing all practices and teachings into one collective system, living in harmonic yogic community, as we connect to the higher realms of the chakra system.

During each week, daily practices are fully aligned with the specific energy of the chakra of focus  (daily practices consist of: morning meditation & hatha yoga to tune the physical body | lecture or discussion to feed the left brain | creative expression | mantra | evening meditation to connect to the dream realms). All daily practices are connected so you can fully embody how the energies of the chakras work in the body and beyond.

La Casa Shambala is our chosen space to explore this territory, as it offers a contained community space with mountain/jungle views.  There are 5 bamboo huts available for double occupancy, allowing 10 participants in total, a very cozy and intimate group. Please be aware spaces in the bungalows is small and separated by a thin cloth. Should you wish for a private bungalow please book private package.

Working our way through the moon cycle, we go from the outer energy of the lower chakras, to the more quiet, inward energy of the higher chakras, back to connecting to the oneness of all of existence in the highest chakras, the trinity of consciousness. Completing our journey of transformation with a sacred full moon ceremony

We work with a multitude of modalities:  asana (hatha yoga postures), pranayama (energy control via breath work), various meditation methods, and channeling creative energies through sound, drawing, writing, and crafting.  Musical instruments and art supplies will be available, but please feel free to bring anything that has been calling your expression .

*This immersion is for all types of yogis including beginners as yoga asana practice and meditation will begin with more assistance and instruction, and progress with less and less, allowing you to access the more subtle inward energies, and create your own personal energy field in a group setting. *

 

We invite you to co-create space, in daily activities and the dream world, through tuning the chakra energies in the entire being.

In this journey we emphasize the importance of inner stillness, discovering the darkness and light within.

 

***EKADASI – breathing your way to liberation, releasing limitations buried in the physical body

Ekadasi literally means eleven days. It is a profound pranayama technique, with pranayama meaning energy control, removing energy blockages, emotional, physical and mental trauma.

Ekadasi is a transformational pranayama technique aimed to go deeply into the layers of your subconscious to clear out any energy blockages preventing you from being within your own truth and walking your path effortlessly.

Energy blockages in our subconscious might have been created through unresolved emotional experiences in the past and need to be settled to create peace of mind for us to be able to step up into our full potential. Many of the traumas are emotional in nature, however there might be physical trauma to be relived with the removing of the energy blockages. The sensations of the physical body might confront us with mental blockages as well, namely fear, anxiety and expectations we need to live through in order to release ourselves from the limitations we put ourselves into. In fact, old physical pains (i.e. toothaches, headaches) can return for a day or so and then subside again. Do not take these symptoms seriously at this time, it is only your nervous system awakening an old memory.

For many people, this may be a moody and frustrating period, and in social situations you may be more irritable. Your mind might go through all kind of confusing thoughts. It is best not to react to any physical or emotional pain until after the 11 days. Just allow it all to pass and remember that what you are going through is your gateway to higher expression.

Our practice will take place in a safe container to allow for each and every one to express freely at any time. During the actual practice, emotional and physical effects can be very intense, while after the practice effects tend to be subtler yet quite deep.

We highly recommend you to dive into the practice of self-observation. You will be journaling to understand and release traumas and stories of the past.

Please note:

It is important for each individual to understand the concept of self-responsibility to effectively clear out and rewire the nervous system with Ekadasi
