About us

Description

One of the main reason of stress is our negative feeling and thoughts. Negativities are prevalent nowadays in our busy, fast pace life. Our interactions with others seem to be more negative than bringing comfort and joy. Our minds are saturated and our sensitivity numbed with overload information and the confusion and despair that come from local, national or world news. In this atmosphere, it is difficult for us to access our innate positive and joyful nature, and remember the goodness of men and the grace of God. We lost faith and doubt our path and worry about where the world is going and what will become of us . We need to see clarly and take a break from our busy life to recharge and reconnect with the beauty and meaning of life. We can not change the external but we can change our outlook about it.

We can not redo the past and it is not helpful to worry about the future, but we can live in the solid present and make the best of it. There will be workshops and lectures specifically on the power of thoughts, how to be in the present, and how to turn negative feelings and thoughts to positive feelings. How to manage stress and respond positivily to challenges. Yoga psychology and philosophy have a wealth of techniques and information that will help us to cope.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To be in my highest self. Josh
