Freeing body, heart and mind:  A Meditation and Breathwork retreat
With Martin Aylward and Alsu Kashapova

Insight meditation and breathwork are profoundly complementary ways of meeting, exploring and transforming our experience. Through the steadiness and clarity of meditation and the potency of intentional breathing, you’ll discover ways to more fully meet, explore and transform your experience.

Silent and guided meditation will support integrating awareness and inquiry into all moments and activities of life. With conscious breathwork you’ll awaken energy flow, clearing unprocessed emotions and memories.

Martin and Alsu’s respective skill, each with years of experience teaching many thousands of students, will intertwine the two practices in this unique retreat, and you will learn deeply how to reveal, care for, and transform your hidden layers of experience, opening up your innate potential for love and ease, joy and wisdom; for living freely amidst the complexities of the world.
