What is breathwork?

The breath is the most accurate and instantaneous mirror for how we feel, think and live.  By consciously connecting with the breath through a safe and gentle process, we are updating these feelings, thoughts and physical sensations to live with more happiness, ease and pleasure in life. Think of it as a re-boot to your body, mind and spirit when the “system” is sluggish or not functioning optimally.

The benefits of breathwork can include:  more clarity, reduced anxiety and depression, increased stress-resilience, increased energy, feelings of more ease and flow in life, decreased physical pain, heightened insight, awakened presence, expanded sense of connection with self and others.

What is sound healing?

other-offeringsEverything in the universe is in a constant state of vibration, including every bone, tissue, organ and cell in our body. When we are in a state of sound health, all of our body parts are vibrating harmoniously at their optimal or resonant frequency.  When our vibration is not in sync with our optimal frequency we can feel out of sorts, imbalanced and depleted.  Shamanic sound healing can help bring your vibration back into resonance, thus allowing you to enjoy a state of relaxation, reduced anxiety and tension, and a boost to the immune system.

Do I have a choice of accommodations?

Spa RoomYes. There are two types of accommodations at The Art of Living Retreat Center.  Retreat accommodations are basic rooms with two twin beds and are intended for those who simply want a place to sleep with no decoration or extra amenities.  The Spa rooms are a significant upgrade from the retreat rooms and are appointed like most nice hotel rooms with upgraded beds (king or 2 doubles) and higher quality towels and linens.  Both types of accommodations have private bathrooms.  Click here to view accommodation options at The Art of Living Retreat Center.  Costs listed below are per person for 2 nights and include the retreat, accommodations and three meals daily beginning with lunch on Friday and ending with lunch on Sunday.
