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}

Namaste,
Lacey

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.

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.
