Ancient Teachings, Modern World—

a spiritual yoga retreat to embody your whole being

 

FEBRUARY 26—MARCH 5, 2022:

MONTEZUMA, COSTA RICA

"If we relate to the world as a collection of lifeless mechanical processes, it is lifeless for us. If we relate to our bodies as machines, they are machines to us. If we relate to religion as a fantasy, it is a fantasy to us. But if the body is regarded as a divine palace, it becomes a vehicle of enlightenment that can carry us beyond death. If we relate to the natural world as alive, full of spirits and elemental beings, the natural world speaks to us." —Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, Healing With Form, Energy, and Light: The Five Elements in Tibetan Shamanism, Tantra, and Dzogchen

How can we move from fragmentation into wholeness? It's a question to ask our self, our relationships, and healing humanity. It is neither hopeless nor wishful thinking but requires commitment, presence, and work. Most of all, it practices our capacity to love fully. During our 8 day retreat, we will dive deeply into body intelligence; take in indigenous and ancestral wisdom; and access various energy fields. This will facilitate natural healing, develop your intuition, expand your consciousness, and merge into interconnectedness. Join us in this sacred space to nourish your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual body.

Highlights:


​In the tropical jungles of Montezuma, we warmly welcome you to Anamaya Retreat. Located in Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula, it has been named as a "Blue Zone"— one of five areas in the world where people are known to live the longest and healthiest.

"I attended Tammy's retreat in Mexico, and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made for myself. It truly was a transformative experience. Tammy is so knowledgeable and very gentle in her practice. She offers a variety of practices and activities all of which are essentially invitations to look within yourself. I learned so much about both myself and life on this retreat, and Tammy was the catalyst that I needed. I had little to no yoga experience prior to coming to this retreat, but did not at all feel overwhelmed or lost during our yoga sessions. Tammy is very sensitive and responsive to people's individual needs and limitations, which I very much appreciated".​~ Joelle, Canada
