A Weekend Of Self Care

With Gloria Baraquio, Rosalyn White, Shari Sunshine and Lydia Hwang

August 16 - 19, 2018

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:

  • Yoga for all levels with Gloria Baraquio
  • Sound Bath
  • Meditation for all levels
  • Essential Oils Class
  • Sacred Art
  • Bodywork, acupuncture, and massage for additional cost at the Mandala Wellness Center
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.

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.

SOUNDBATH

Relax, melt, and rest to the sounds of chimes, harp, gongs, and crystal bowls.  Our professional sound healers will allow your body, cells, and organs to resonate and heal.
