Removing our clothes in an intentional way can provoke an altered state of consciousness and a heightened state of awareness. Mostly prohibited by our conservative cultures, many spiritual practitioners have discovered the power in this technique, such as certain Jain and Hindu monks, Wiccans and Pagans, and some radical Christians. Psychotherapists in California in the 1960s discovered the ability of nakedness to create altered states of consciousness. The kinds of thoughts, feelings and sensations that occur in this state can vary. At least three distinct experiences associated with nudity can occur: a sense of being ‘unmasked’, heightened sensory perception and feelings of child-like innocence.
A NATURAL HIGH
Combining nudity with other spiritual practices like yoga, meditation, conscious dance and other personal growth, transformational and healing workshops, we will spend a week rediscovering our original nature, enjoying our natural state in a safe environment on a healing journey to freedom and wholeness. There will be time for nature walks, a boat and snorkel trip, and time on the beach, in the sun and the sea.
THE DAILY PROGRAM
The daily program includes 3 yoga classes, catering to beginners and advanced yogis, with options including traditional hatha, restorative, yin, kundalini and power flow yoga. One class per day will be exclusively sky-clad (nude); the rest will be clothing optional. Clothing optional events include Partner Yoga classes and Thai Yoga Massage workshops. The schedule will also feature sunrise meditation, Qi Gong and Pranayama, cathartic breath-work sessions, ecstatic and conscious dance workshops and a processional temple dance during the full moon. Graell Corsini from the Goddess Temple in Ashland will give a Priestess Portal Activation for women and a Chivalry and the Beast workshop for men.
