A Weekend of Self Care – Labor Day – SOLD OUT!

With Gloria Baraquio, Rosalyn White and Christine DeCristofaro

August 30 - September 2, 2019

SLOW DOWN, TAKE A BREAK AND REST
JOIN US FOR OUR PREMIER 3 NIGHT PROGRAM LABOR DAY WEEKEND.  PLEASE BOOK EARLY, THIS EVENT WILL SELL OUT. RESERVATIONS ARE LIMITED TO 28 GUESTS 

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
  • Sound Baths
  • Meditation for all levels
  • Sacred Art
  • Optional bodywork, acupuncture, and massage at the Mandala Wellness Center for additional fees
  • And much more….

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 BATHS

Enjoy and relax to the sounds of harmonizing bowls, chimes, and serene musical instruments.  Allow the mind and body to soften, as your spirit travels to restful and ethereal realms.  Participants will lay down for most of the practice, and/or be guided through restorative postures with supportive props.

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.

WAYS TO SELF-CARE

Learn how to bring balance for yourself through daily self-care with essential oils, breathing, yoga, journaling, walking, enjoying tea, and deep listening.  We will discuss and explore different practices that people use to care for themselves.

SACRED ART

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