Program Details

For all levels.

Celebrate “groundation”–a potent Jamaican way of life that involves being balanced, grounded, and centered within your dharma. Experience a practice that supports self-realization and weaves a foundation of depth and ritual throughout the fabric of this week and beyond.

Revolutionize your self-inquiry in a program that includes

  • A nurturing, restorative yoga practice and an intentional writing exercise that creates space for transformation
  • Daily Prana Vinyasa Flow yoga blended with the alchemy of the elements
  • Integrative and therapeutic movement that combines trance dance, kriyas, drumming, and self-expression
  • A container of empowerment in which to consciously see and be seen
  • Native American and Jamaican Rastafarian cultural rituals and a closing ceremony.

Surrender into community, cultivate courage, and ignite an intention to carry with you back into your everyday life.

Recommended reading Shiva Rea, Tending the Heart Fire; Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul; Simon Haas, The Dharma Code; Sally Kempton, The Transformative Power of the Goddesses of Yoga; Stephen Cope, The Great Work of Your Life; Lorin Roche, The Radiance Sutras.
