Soma, Psych and Soul Retreat 

A Yoga and Meditation Retreat with Livia Cohen-Shapiro MA and Sarah Gibson, MA of Sacred Alchemy

At Haramara Retreat Center, Mexico. 

Join us for seven magnificent days in Mexico that will comprise of daily yoga and meditation, the warmth of the sun, and access to beautiful beaches. This retreat will blend deep asana practice with sublime meditative techniques and illuminating body- centered practices. Our week will focus on the Pancha Kritya: the Five Acts of Shiva. We will explore aspects of Creation, Destruction, Support, Concealment, and Revelation in the body, in the psyche, and through the soul. Each day, we will utilize these gateways to clear blockages, open to new possibilities, tend to our sacred vessels, and learn to be in our lives ever more fully.
