THIS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND WITH GLORIA BARAQUIO IS DESIGNED FOR YOU TO REMIND YOURSELF THAT YOU CAN SLOW DOWN AND TAKE A BREAK

In the fast-paced world of mobile devices, cars, planes, deadlines, and capitalism, we can lose track of what’s important, like our well-being, inner peace, laughter, and our personal truth.  

You matter, and you are more than enough. That phone call or email can wait. Your family or job will be fine without you always being there.  

Treat yourself and take three days at Ratna Ling to unwind, reflect, and breathe into your fullness. Remember what you value the most, and then return to your life with a renewed sense of ease, joy, and strength.

This weekend includes:

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

YOGA

These yoga classes are designed for all levels, incorporating breathing, stretching, and fluid movements.  The postures and techniques help to stabilize and calm the nervous system, strengthen muscles, and tone the organs, bringing more ease and circulation throughout the body. You can expect to feel more relaxed, aware, and stronger from this yoga practice.

SOUND BATH

A 60 minute sound bath begins with an introduction to the therapeutic properties of sound. A 30-45 minute crystal bowl sound session follows. During this session, participants will be invited to lay on yoga mats with their eyes closed. I will gently lead them into a state of deep relaxation, as the restorative tones and harmonies of the bowls wash over them. The therapeutic sounds of a sound bath are known to induce Alpha and Theta brainwave states in participants. These brainwave states promote coherence in both brain and body — resulting in profound regenerative and healing effects on all levels. Psychological and emotional stress dissolve as an ocean of lush overtones and harmonizing vibrations fills the space.  Participants will benefit from the enhanced focus, inspiration and creativity that a sound bath promises. Motivation and productivity increase as balance and unison are restored in both brain hemispheres.

MEDITATION 

In these sessions, you can learn how to be with yourself and make friends with your mind, through sitting or walking.. The mind has a multitude of qualities and abilities, and meditation helps us observe and acquaint ourselves with the ones that occur often and those that we didn’t know were there.  This practice can bring about more steadiness, clarity, discernment, and calmness for the mind, body, and spirit.

ESSENTIAL OILS BASICS

Learn how to be a healer in your own home and bring daily self-care with essential oils.  We will sample different essential oils and learn about the natural healing qualities of each that can boost your immunity, calm the mind, soothe muscles, or activate alertness.

SACRED ART

Find inspiration and enchantment through the study of Buddhist drawings, paintings, and sculptures, and learn a little history and symbolism behind them.
