2017 - PSY 2017 AT FINCA MORPHO WAS ONE FOR THE BOOKS! We dove deep into our purpose and participants left feeling empowered and supercharged. The vibes were high as I showed people the power of mindfulness, magick, and movement. Everyone felt super connected, with a long list of tools and techniques to add to their bag of tricks.
We started on Thursday as participants began arriving. We opened up the space with a beautiful Fire Ceremony at the Medicine Wheel together to initiate the retreat. I called in the directions of North, South, East, West, Mother Earth, Father Sky & Great Spirit. Also inviting any other allies and guides to join the journey. After some songs and prayers, we went around the circle to state our intentions and introduce ourselves.
Day 2 started bright and early at 6am in the yoga shala with a grounding meditation. Slow flow hatha yoga left everyone feeling connected to their bodies and the Earth. After sharing a delicious fruit breakfast, we jumped right into the juicy topics. What is Permaculture? What is Shamanism? What is Yoga? Brief intro discussions of these concepts. After a healthy lunch and some downtime, We started Tea Time with the Sages, which happened daily after lunch. A Tea Ceremony with little cups of tea, sharing songs/poetry, reading Tao Te Ching and Be Here Now, philosophizing and having fun activities. After dinner was our first Satsang, or evening gathering! Healing Chant that uses sacred tones, frequencies and sounds to heal & balance chakras.
Day 3 began with Kriya Yoga. This is a practice that focuses on the subtle energies of the body to increase awareness through breath and vizualization. After a lesson about Moon Magick, we shared lunch. Later in the evening we had a sacred song circle where we shared medicine songs to unite our vibrations through voice.
Day 4 started with Kundalini Yoga, a practice that builds energy, expands the aura, and raises your frequency of perception. After breakfast, we dove into divination, a way to use crystals and tarot cards to seek guidance from the divine. Afterwards i led a shamanic journey, using a drum to guide people into meeting their spirit animal. After lunch, the brothers and sisters split up for a Men's/Women's circle. We united as brothers to support each other and the sisters did the same. We capped off this night with an Angel Walk, an epic love tunnel, where everyone is bathed in liquid bliss individually.
Day 5 (Spring Equinox) kicked off with a cacao ceremony vizualization into the heart, followed by a fiery vinyasa to get the blood pumping and the energy moving! We spoke later of elemental alchemy, word magic, and how to make a ceremony. After Lunch was How to have Tea Time where we had tea and I went into the basics of holding space for tea ceremonies and tea parties. After dinner we had the Equinox Ceremony to close the portal and project intentions into the coming season. Participants used what they'd learned and all got to call in a direction! Singing songs, saying prayers, and sharing our hearts, it was indeed a grand conclusion to an epic ceremony!
Day 6 departure day wrapped us up with a slow healing restorative yoga flow. Everyone left this retreat feeling super-charged and ultra connected. fully aligned with their purpose with a giant list of tools to use along the path. All-in-all, it was an epic retreat!
