Who is the Liberated Woman? 

She is FREE of ALL conditionings and constructs.
She lives from intuition and instinct.

She is FREE of masks and societal pressures.
She lives as her authentic self with integrity.

She is FREE of guilt and shame.
She honours her body as a temple and her sexuality as sacred.

She is FREE of fear.
She trusts life fully. She speaks with courage. She flows with ALL THAT IS.

She is FREE of thinking she should look and act a certain way.
She is wild, natural and in touch with her natural rhythm and cycles.

She is FREE of judgement.
She is compassionate. She loves unconditionally. She lifts other women up.

She is FREE from the limitations of her mind.
She witnesses all of creation as a reflection of herself.

She knows who she is. She knows she was never bound.

She is Life itself.

She is Love.

Can you feel her? Is she alive within you? Do you want to connect with her more deeply and reawaken her into Being?

Farm of Life, nestled in the middle of the jungle at the top of a mountain, makes it the ideal location for our ReWild & ReConnect Retreat (it is literally at the end of the gravel road!). This gem is located in the Southwest coastal region of Costa Rica, near the Pacific Ocean, Dominical beach and the mountain town of San Isidro. During your stay at Finca de Vida, bask in the high vibrational elements of the farm, feel the nourishing tropical breeze, listen to the symphony of innumerable birds & insects, watch the mesmerising dance of the butterflies, dragonflies & hummingbirds.

This magical property bursts with radiant, fragrant flowers and lush gardens, towering ceiba trees, and flowing crystalline waters. Connect with Mother Nature and be nurtured by barefoot walking, sun gazing, breathing in fresh mountain air, hiking through the jungle trail, eating off the land and drinking pure spring water. Witness unforgettable sunsets and the mystical, shapeshifting clouds of the approaching rainy season. Every moment at the Farm, everywhere that you look, all that you hear, touch, taste, & smell is an opportunity to experience pure wonderment and awe of this magical slice of paradise.

One Day SELF RENEWAL Retreat with Lacey Budge

Saturday October 28th, 2017

8:30 am – 9 pm

Anishnabe Spiriutal Center, Espanola


IMG_8416.JPG

The focus of this autumn retreat is one of renewal and relaxation. This one day getaway is an invitation to look inward, to recharge and to fill up your own cup. From this place of deep rejuvenation, you will feel more revitalised and present for yourself, your family, your purpose, your job and everyone who graces your path.

Throughout the day, you will be gently guided into restoration, softening and letting go, through the practice of hatha yoga {for all levels}, meditation, nature walks, and personal time in silence {mauna} for Self care and Self reflection.

The retreat also includes an inspiring afternoon workshop which will offer pointings to inner Truth. Remember how to sit in the company of your own splendour, and how to “tap in” to the stillness, joy, love and infinite energy that already dwells within. The intention of this workshop is to remind you that you are much more than your body, thoughts, emotions, reactions, roles and story. “Do not feel lonely. The entire Universe lives inside of you.” ~Rumi 

Your body, mind and spirit will be nourished and enlivened with a whole foods, organic (when possible) vegan brunch and dinner, infused water, herbal teas, as well as an afternoon superfood bliss ball snack!

Our day together will close with an evening practice of yoga nidra- the yoga of deep relaxation. Through this practice and the relaxing energy of the entire day, you will leave feeling in harmony and balance.

May we all rest in our natural state of Sat.Chit.Ananda {Truth. Consciousness.Bliss Absolute}

Emergence: A Weekend Retreat for Women

emergence_retreat

Saturday April 29th (8 am)- Sunday April 30th ( 3 pm)

Anishnabe Spiritual Center, Espanola  

Calling all women! Honour yourself with the gift of transformation, exploration, sisterhood, healing and ecstatic joy. 

The intention of this 2 day retreat is to bring together and unite conscious women who are ready and willing to step into their fullest potential and truest version of themselves.  Throughout the weekend, you will be safely guided and invited to slowly open up; to shed the layers, masks, judgements and limiting beliefs that veil you from recognising and remembering who you truly are.

Throughout this journey, we will dive deeper into awakening our authentic self through the practice of yoga, heart opening breath work, kundalini meditation, sacred dance {with ceremonial chocolate!}, connecting with nature, time in silence, sharing in sisterhood and the exploration of sacred relationships.

I am very excited to share with you a practice that has completely changed my way of living as a natural, awakened women: Feminine Life Design and Moon Mapping. Learn to approach your life from a completely different perspective which honours your feminine rhythms, cycles, emotions, and energy levels. The workshop will explain how living life in accordance with the cycles of the moon will give you a better understanding on how to “plan” your life: when to best start new projects, to schedule in important meetings or trips, to be out in the world of “doing,”  versus when it’s time to rest, rejuvenate, go within, dream and simply “be.”Tune into your body’s innate intelligence and the way the moon lives through you so you can harness your energy and use it creatively, emotionally, sexually and spiritually.

Ignite your feminine essence and sensuality with a Saturday night “Red Tent” celebration which will awaken your senses, invite you to be fully seen, and celebrate the courageous woman you are! The evening will end with a relaxing, hot oil self massage.

To love is to feel…

Before we know it, we will return 

to the great void from whence we came

A moment in time, a pause in the eternal wheel of life,

and a new cycle begins

A lifetime is simply one moment in eternity

To love is to feel

To love is to accept all there is as it is

To love is to feel complete

To love is know that nothing is missing

For everything is a part of you –

There is no separation

Yet in spite, there is sadness in the heart of love

Because love forever yearns,

It forever ebbs and flows between pleasure and pain

Love it both empty and full

In love you get both laughter and tears

Love is the builder and destroyer of our illusions

And beyond this . . . 

Love is all there is

A heart yearns, a soul ebbs and flows

A dream becomes a reality

Only to discover that reality is a dream

By Toni Carmine Salerno: Gaia: Body and Soul In honour of Mother Nature and the Feminine Spirit

From Chaos to Stillness: 27 Hour Silent Meditation Retreat with Lacey Budge {Espanola}

Friday January 20th (6-9pm) & Saturday January 21st (9 am – 9 pm), 2017

7abc750cd9bb93d6f2b81d61ede14e12
In an intimate group setting, experience the beauty, inner peace and pure joy of moving your awareness inward and getting to know who you truly are. This 27 hour silent retreat is a beautiful opportunity to simply “be,” to learn how to sit with your thoughts/emotions and observe what arises without identifying or reacting. An opportunity to investigate who you truly are beyond your name, role, physical appearance, job, successes, losses, likes, dislikes, opinions, perceptions, belief system, judgments, etc….Throughout this 2 day retreat, I will guide and invite you to connect with your True Essence, Highest Self and Presence.

Through gentle yoga, meditation, breathing exercises, concentration techniques, time in nature and teachings on the spiritual heart, non-duality and self inquiry inspired by Ramana Maharshi, Eckhart Tolle, Mooji, and Hridaya Yoga, you may begin to feel more connected to that space within you which is permanent, formless and unchanging. Learn how to become less identified with your always changing thoughts, emotions, identity and the constant chatter of the mind. Leave the retreat with a sense of renewal, a shift in perspective and variety of tools that you can integrate daily to better navigate your life. 

This retreat is designed for everyone, both men and women, whether you have never meditated or have a regular practice.

The retreat includes 2 simple, nourishing, homemade and organic meals to support your practice.

Please note this is an offsite retreat, and accommodation is not included. It is highly recommended to set up your schedule and surroundings for Friday night to best support your process and journey. During the 2 day retreat, it is recommended to give yourself a break from reading, writing, listening to music, technology, alcohol and engaging into conversation with others.

First, you will learn about the properties and benefits of the amazing superfood Cacao, while sipping on chocolate elixirs prepared with 100% Pure Costa Rican Cacao. We will follow with an authentic ceremony including drumming, rattling, sageing, intention setting, heart expanding music as well as a relaxing Savasana (with hands on massage!) to tune into the benefits of this sacred medicine. We will then begin to awaken our bodies with breath and movement before coming into spontaneous, intuitive, ecstatic dance. This practice is a moving meditation, with eyes closed, inviting you to bring energy inward, all while expressing yourself freely. Throughout the 75 minute dance practice, we will use specifically chosen music aligned to each chakra to journey from the root to the crown. Finally, we dissolve, let go, and release with a final relaxation, integration and optional group sharing.

Cacao and dance have been used for thousands of years for healing, to reach shamanic states and to open the heart.
