Movement, Meditation, Moon Retreat for Women

Womens Retreat flyer, save the date invitation
You will be saying “mmmmmmm” as you journey through 5 days, 6 nights of mindfully moving, breathing, connecting and nourishing yourself from the inside out and outside in. A 5 day retreat inviting you to explore your WHOLE self. We will use yoga asana, functional movement, instinctive meditation practices and moon ceremony and ritual in order to enliven and revitalize the WHOLE self.

We will also be weaving the beauty and knowledge of the text “Meditation Secrets for Women,” written by Camille Maurine and Dr. Lorin Roche as one of our guides in order to explore the hundreds of meditation gateways that are NOT based on monastic traditions of sitting there and trying to “tame the monkey mind.” Instead, we will explore our senses, our pleasures, our desires and what it is like to be a woman who has a yearning to be mindful and aware, yet who is living in the year 2020 with a house, kids, a career, health challenges, an aging body, a vibrant mind and beyond.

This text and the teachings of Dr. Lorin Roche and Camille Maurine have been instrumental in helping your guide, Heather Briann, on her own journey of intimacy and connection with herself and all of life. When Lorin told her that she was absolutely correct to follow her body’s guidance and lay down in her morning meditation practice and that she did not need to feel shame or that she was doing something wrong, she lit up. Heather has been teaching from The Radiance Sutras and Meditation Secrets for Women ever since. As someone who is also passionate about supporting and inviting her students into exploratory movement and variety in our movement patterns, she weaves the magic of what we all love about yoga with the latest in movement science research and the instinctive meditation practices from the above texts into a unique offering that supports WHOLE SELF HEALTH.

Whether you are new to or experienced with, meditation Diana can help you find trust in yourself, the strength to navigate life’s challenges and the ability to embrace pleasure, joy and love in your life. Through Instinctive Meditation, you can develop a love relationship with life.   Diana began studying Instinctive Meditation with Lorin Roche in 2011 and became certified as an Instinctive Meditation teacher in 2017. She also studied Meditation Secrets for Women with Camille Maurine for 2 years. She recently retired from her private practice as a somatic psychotherapist. She continues to teach and give workshops in the US, Europe, Brazil, Argentina, New Zealand and China.

Heather and Diana welcome you with open arms and heart to come to explore your WHOLE beautiful, brilliant, radiant self in Maui and the gorgeous Lumeria Retreat Center. An experience that will help you welcome, accept and celebrate all the parts of yourself.
