Through the lens of the 5 Great Elements and their respective qualities, we will explore Yoga as a means of accessing and activating intrinsic powers and insights. Learn about the true superpowers we bring into this life and how we might harness them as individuals and collectively to heal and gain clarity. Our weekend will trace the intelligence of Tantric subtle body maps like the chakra systems, which serve as altars within which we can alter without.Join Jessica C Patterson, founder of Root: Center for Yoga & Sacred Studies for this 3-night retreat in the Colorado mountains, exploring the principles and practices that help us revise (see anew) who we are in all our relations.This will be a weekend of nourishment and recalibration on every level.

In the great traditions of Yoga and Ayurveda, health is known as swastha, which really means to be established in the True Self (dynamic, fluid, and whole). Sometimes our stories get in the way of that. The retreat will offer us a time to rewrite, reconnect, integrate, digest, and heal into resilient alignment with the natural rhythms as taught by these and other wisdom traditions.

Over the course of our weekend, daily practices and gatherings will center around the shared wisdom of Yoga & Ayurveda, exploring elemental principles for self inquiry and healing into the truth of who we are. We will explore yogic practices of kriya, asana, chanting, mudra, pranayama (breath work), meditation, and deep relaxation while reflecting on the elemental wisdom that frames it all. Discussions, writing prompts, and self study will complement our collective time. Through accessible and relevant inquiries, you will develop an actual, meaningful, empowering personal practice of Yoga as your direct means for reclaiming and bringing forward your intrinsic, authentic beauty and intelligence in this world.

This is not a retreat about posing and posturing as something “other,” but rather accessing and radiating the presence and power you are.

Lodging is very simple and communal in a rustic private cabin, but with limited spots for this retreat, everyone will have ample space to spread out and find privacy as well as honor distancing in the time of this pandemic. Camping is permitted, as well. Here, we are surrounded by the quiet beauty of the natural world. Enjoy the many nearby hiking trails, fireside relaxation, nearby hot springs, gathering of sublime community, and plenty of down time to settle into yourself.

And, as an essential ingredient in our nourishing journey, fresh, seasonal, homemade vegan/vegetarian fare will be prepared lovingly on site.
