Meditation and the Eye of Shiva/Shakti: Living as Your Divine Human Self

Five-day Retreat with Sally Kempton and Elizabeth Rossa
April 3-8, 2016
Mount Madonna Retreat Center, Watsonville, CA

Elizabeth is thrilled to join Sally at the bi-yearly Mount Madonna retreat, which offers a powerful opportunity to immerse yourself in inner practice in a supportive, spiritually vibrant environment. This retreat will focus on both deep meditation, and the practices for transmuting emotional and mental obstructions. We’ll plunge into the meditative world, and from that profound awareness, learn and practice the tantric methodologies for recognizing and working with the energies of mind and heart. Through self-inquiry, deity practice, mantra and inner immersion, we’ll stabilize our contact with the Self, while experimenting with what it means to let go, transmute, and dissolve limiting structures. Besides meditation, the retreat includes lectures on philosophy and practice by Sally, mutual inquiry with a partner, contemplative exercises, mantra practice, and hatha yoga with Elizabeth Rossa. We’ll have the benefit of the Mount Madonna campus, where trails take us through the redwood forest and each day begins and ends with chanting at the Hanuman and Ganesha temples. The facilities are state-of-the-art, the views are sublime, and the food is healthy and delicious.
