a new year's retreat and celebration
Dates: THURSDAY December 31 - saturday January 2, 2021
Retreat Duration: 3 Days/2 Nights
Teacher: ALLISON GOMES
Do something special to usher in the new year. Our New Year's Retreat brings consciousness and compassion into this celebratory event. Including yoga and meditation in the days leading up to and after the turn of the year is a great way to embrace and to connect to impermanence and change. A more relaxed schedule will allow you to take in the the last days of 2020 and to reflect upon what you have in life that you can offer gratitude towards.
“For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning."
~ T.S. Eliot
Our intention for this New Year's Retreat is simple - celebrate in the presence of like-minded people and really take the time to offer gratitude, compassion and hope to a world that needs it. We believe in the power of collective positive intention, that when a group of people get together and channel their wishes and hopes in an act of concentration and connection, together, we can make an impact in the world. On a personal level, this retreat will encourage you to let go of unnecessary holds from the past and worries of the future as you practice the art of being present. Relax, let go and rejuvenate in beautiful Nong Khiaw. Morning and evening yoga classes, meditation, and a traditional Laos baci ceremony will plant the seeds for smooth transitions ahead. New Year's toast included at midnight on the 31st!
