WILD DHARMA TOUR 2017

DATES COMING

 

Encounters with Beauty

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Join us on a 12 day participatory meditation through the wild and beautiful Palawan.

 

The island province of Palawan has been declared as a nature sanctuary of the world and for good reason.

It is wrapped in a mantle of rich rainforest, outstanding dive sites, majestic mountains, primeval caves and pristine beaches. Palawan waters are among the best in the world, a divers paradise with miles of sub suface coral and rainbow reefs walls teeming with rich marine wildlife.

 

This retreat experience is not just a yoga retreat somewhere beautiful but a total immersion in the

transformational power of beauty itself.

The experience of beauty elicits a raw and intimate encounter with reality. It opens a way of feeling and participating with life that is fundamental to the human condition.

It awakens in us a pure perceptual openess and a spontaneous and uncontrived capacity for presence.

 

This retreat is an exploration of the embodied intimacy of beauty and how it 

spontaneously opens us to the living frontier of our lives.

It is an invitation to relax into a deep sense of belonging in the natural world, both inner and outer. 

 

The experience of beauty is an utterly natural and untamed dharma.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our first week together is based on our own private tropical beach.

Our yoga and meditation practice will form the foundation and prepare us for deep and rich encounters with the sights, sounds, smells, touch and tastes of the natural world around us.

 

On our second week , we cruise north by boat to explore the many beaches, coves, lagoons and

rich coral reefs of the El Nido area.

 

Come join us on this unique journey towards total participation with our experiences, letting ourselves touch and be touched by life in a raw and immediate encounter with reality.

 

Somewhere in us, there is a deep longing for this kind of encounter with the living world.
