This is a special retreat being offered as a collaboration between Janice Gagnon and Jennifer Tyler.
Thai Massage Training lead by Janice Gagnon: Metta first technique second
The Spiritual healing aspects of Thai massage
Using your intuition for deeper healing from an energetic approach
Looking at “the big picture” with your client from a holistic point of view rather than just the physical aspects
Open-hearted loving kindness is one of the foundations of Traditional Thai massage. We will be exploring Metta through Thai healing interventions and technique as well as through guided meditation and spiritual teaching.
Guided and Silent meditation and satsang lead everyday by Jennifer Tyler: Retreats include opportunities to explore the natural condition of Being through: silent sitting, guided meditation, direct pointers (teaching talks), heart opening guided movement, spiritual inquiry, exploratory conversation, question/response, and sacred music. This meditation style is an opportunity to practice giving our minds to our hearts. When the attention is returned to the heart there is natural capacity for courage, forgiveness, kindness, discernment, innovation and creativity. And there is an opportunity to directly experience the uncaused Love, uncaused Joy at the heart of Being. When one courageously and sincerely returns the idea of a separate “me” to the wholeness of Reality, as it is, a revolutionary journey begins.

In this time on planet Earth many are being called to align with the evolutionary potential of Love. This retreat offers opportunities to consciously discover and embody your heart, your soul, your spirit. You will go home rejuvenated, refreshed and with tools that are useful in your daily life. An open heart, an open mind, a connection to your essence, these are the pearls, the treasure of retreat.
This trip is for anyone who wants to weave these three practices– an ancient healing art based in metta, yoga, and spiritual awakening– into their lives in order to have tools to more fully embrace all of life. Also for those wanting a heart felt adventure in a country whose national creed is “pura vida”, which directly translates as pure life but it can also mean “life is now” or “i am alive” and it is a statement of pure gratitude. Pura vida is a feeling of acceptance and trust and being present. The good and the bad, the triumph and hardship is all Pura vida.
