Forgiveness and Letting Go

Saturday 25 February, 1:00pm - 6:00pm
Anubhuti Meditation and Retreat Center
820 Bel Marin Keys Blvd
USA

Afternoon Workshop

Saturday 1:00 to 6:00 pm

Our relationships with others are ultimately a reflection of our relationship with our self. When we know the 'real me' and our ‘true potential' we realize our own self-worth and value. Each of us is needed in the world, each of us has a gift to give to the world.

For there to be healing physically, mentally, or emotionally there needs to be a flow of energy. Love, forgiveness and compassion bring vitality and strength to my relationships and the self. In forgiveness of others I begin the process of forgiving myself and letting go of hurt and pain.

  • Understand how our inner world affects our relationships to others
  • Letting go and using meditation to experience peace and stillness
  • Create a new vision for healthy relationships
  • Discover the root cause of conflict or unmet expectations
  • Explore the art of forgiveness and learn the steps to forgiveness so pain and sorrow finishes

Facilitator: Elizabeth Padilla has been studying and teaching Raja Yoga Meditation since 1985. She has facilitated many seminars, workshops and value based programs, and is the program director at Anubhuti.

Afternoon Workshop

Sunday 1:00 to 6:00 pm

Chance or Choice?
Are you creating your life deliberately or by default? Are you choosing how you direct your destiny? Or are you leaving it to chance?

As the saying goes: “Choice, not chance, determines your destiny.” Is everything really a choice? Is your destiny really in your hands? Is it already pre-planned and mapped out for us? Can we take control of our destiny? How and why should we change our destiny?

Would you like to unravel the mystery of destiny? Do you really need to? As the saying goes, “life is not a puzzle to be solved but a mystery to be lived”!

Take the chance and join us to understand the mystery of destiny. The choice is yours!

Explore, Experiment, and Experience:

  • The meaning, significance and mysteries of destiny
  • Experiment on how to break free from the past and living in auto-pilot mode
  • How to create our life, by making a positive choice and enjoying the wonder and spontaneity of life
  • How to perceive karma as the path to freedom

820 Bel Marin Keys Blvd
USA

3 Day Retreat

Thursday 6 pm to Sunday 5 pm

Access peace, creative expression and your inner wisdom 

Whether you are an experienced or beginning meditator you can benefit from a period of silent meditation to quiet the mind and reset your priorities. Clearing through the mind with the aid of silent meditation, we discover that just below the surface of our thoughts and emotions, there is a clear and peaceful mind and heart that offer creative and clear directions. This creativity and self-awareness connects us with our deeper selves and each other.  Learning to deepen this process of silent meditation in a group is easier than meditating alone, as the collective resonance enhances the experience. Join us and access your true potential. Side effects may include feeling joyous and content.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Ability to easily tap into the power of inner peace and wisdom at any time
  2. Cultivate concentration skills that enhance creativity and clarity
  3. Experience exercises that improve energy, flow and overall well-being

Schedule includes: Guided meditations, creative exercises, nature and labyrinth walks, hatha yoga, qigong, community service and yogic breathing practices.

Facilitator: Jay (Janardhan) Chodagam, MS, is a meditation trainer since 2001 based in San Francisco. He regularly conducts meditation retreats in Marin and hosts the weekly San Francisco Meditation Meetup. He is also the producer of the annual Peace in the Park festival in SF and SPIRIT Summit in India. www.about.me/chodagam

The Peace Retreat is designed for people aged 16-24 who have a desire to successfully navigate today’s challenges in order to achieve their goals and attain personal happiness. We will discuss the expectations and pressures involved with defining success and provide a toolbox of mechanisms to unveil the passion & purpose of the individual.

Offering comprehensive tools to stay embodied & present throughout the weekend

Grounding: setting heart-based intentions and clarifying personal needs and desires for time together

Self love/healing, activation, compassion, inspire, leadership, opening up, communication

Conversations about tuning into body’s messages regarding sleep, health, food, relaxation, time off, exploring your own self expression of self LOVE. Questioning: How do you love yourself?  

We will facilitate activities that support distilling your path/purpose. What are you called to? What is your heart telling you? What are you attracted to more than other things? What do you love to do?

Activities around dance, movement, yoga, art, meditation, nature, music and being “silly” and being themselves!

Integration & what’s next?

Guests will be supported towards creating a personalized action plan that can help lay a foundation for a peaceful life.

Reframing a view of success to one that values passion and creation over societal pressures and expectations.

Provide ongoing support and community connection through social media & seasonal reunions.
