The Art of Manifesting and the Law of Attraction

  • With Dr. Teresa DeCicco & Cynthia Banks

Recently popularized as the Law of Attraction, this notion has been taught around the world for many centuries. We’ll explore and experience how our thoughts attract what we have and what we wish to have in our lives.

Group and individual discussion including meditation, breath work, restorative yoga and manifesting activities will hone the skills necessary for creating our greatest potential. Book your spot!

From Cynthia:

30 years ago I was introduced to the 12 Steps of Recovery.  I have been shown by many beautiful people who have gone before me how to live a principled life through the steps but it wasn’t until I began the practice of yoga that I found a greater depth of emotional sobriety.   Bringing the steps into my yoga practice has given me a greater awareness of what I need to practice off my mat. The breath work and pranayama energy has become an essential part of my connection with my Divine Creator.  I’m so excited to share this practice and hear about your awarenesses.

Beyond the Six Senses

  • With Cynthia Banks & Norma Ackerley

This powerful exploration of the senses will catapult your brain and body receptors to the next level of mindfulness and remind you of the immensity of your wholeness and being.  This weekend will combine experiences in hearing, touch, sight, smell, taste and intuition to invigorate you and awaken your perception of the world around you and the omnipresent nature of your true Self.  Walk through the chakra vortexes of energy along the spinal column through a beautiful combination of restorative yoga with sound healing, reiki, aromatherapy oils and food, nature and fire, visualization and meditation.
