Oh, noble spirit, finder of this ancient way
Oh, noble spirit, finder of this ancient way
The idea is we'll spend a weekend together practicing diligently within a beautiful home besides like minded souls, outside this hungry city's reach, with a little space, a little silence, and a little time to remember another way! We'll be doing a lot of yoga, focusing on the entire spectrum of this practice. We'll practice meditation to recover clear mind, asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques) to recover energy, and ceremony to recover spirit. Ultimately, we'll be learning how to move through what is stunted and closed within us by opening and then accepting every possible aspect of our world.
It'll be a challenge but growth always is and by the end of it I'm certain we'll all be a bit more centered than we were, with a few more friends than we had, and the infinite miracle that is life a bit more obvious than it was.
Retreat Begins WEDNESDAY JULY 31 @ 7:00PM
Retreat Ends SUNDAY AUGUST 4 @ 8:00PM
"Eben Oroz demonstrates the depth of sincerity of his own practice in the way that he teaches. He creates a safe space in retreats for students to explore both philosophy and the connections between mind, body, and spirit. Spending a weekend with him is a transformational experience supported by positive community connections."

The retreat can be divided into three subjects; Mind, Energy, and the Spirit.
Mind will be explored through stillness and silence. Again, the ambition within the practicing of Mind is to accept self. Key concepts are:
(The four layers of the complete mind)
(The obstacles before freedom)
(The trust within indifference)
(The embodied divine)
Energy will be redefined and re-experienced through a complete vision of what asana & pranayama are. The assumption is that if we can process more Energy than we have the power to process more of what life is. To process is to accept. Key concepts are:
(The divine technology of the human being)
(Breath expanding, invigorating, pacifying, and balancing techniques)
(The great seal)
(The infrastructure of energy)
The recognition of Spirit is a surprising epiphany! It can only happen on its own. Through Spirit we are able to accept the totality and paradox of the highest truth. Key concepts are:
(The 5 layers of the human being)
(The 5 currents of wind)
(The sacred rendezvous that is the senses)
(The infinite experience)
(The third eye)

Tara Sanctuary is a serene respite for the soul!
A Gorgeous 4000 sq ft, 3 story villa, on 5 acres of lush mature landscapes, surrounded by over 40 acres of Mountain Conservation land. Bright spacious interiors with cathedral ceilings, patios and open decks with mountain, and sunset views. It has four bedrooms and 3 baths with 3 wood burning fireplaces and relaxed furnishings. The Villa is tastefully decorated, a perfect blend of rustic style and gracious comfort.
The rooms glow with soft lighting, statues and woodcarvings of archetypes. Gentle waves of the fragrance of tea leaves with a hint of sage linger in the space. During the day, the sun shines in flooding each room with natural light and framing spectacular views from every single window. At night soft warm lighting can be controlled with dimmers.
Naturally beautiful surroundings. Many tranquil settings everywhere for everyone to find a peaceful space to retreat to. The feel of the property is that of being in one's home. Take a stroll in the beautiful gardens or sit by the fountains. Dine outside on the Wisteria covered patios and relax in our intimate gazebo. During the warmer days you may find yourself unwinding on the floating bed at the top of the property or hammocks. In winter time enjoy the fireplaces on the comfy armchairs in every room on the ground level. The generous space facilitates a wonderful deepening into your own meditative space.
