Explore a new depth and understanding in recovery from addictive behaviours.

This uniquely created retreat brings together the principles of the 12 Steps used in many recovery programs combined with yogic philosophy for the gentle practice of yoga.  Each yoga session will be followed by a group discussion to share new insights and perspectives brought about by the practice.

How do the 12 steps express themselves on our mat, in our practice and into our daily lives?  Cynthia Banks is donating her time to facilitate this retreat.  Costs are to cover accommodations, cleaning services and food.

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.

  • Fee: $260 (plus HST)

An intentional mini retreat exploring our inner soulscapes with mindful inquiry to facilitate the healing and growth that is possible when we journey inwards. This retreat will combine ancient Yogic practices with Shamanic divination practices, and is designed to teach you how to feel comfortable using these modalities as you continue on your personal path of self-discovery.

Our meals will be entirely plant-based and prepared with love to ensure that we are consuming food that is high vibrational in order to facilitate the nourishment of mind, body, spirit to support our inner journey. The most sincere intention behind the creation of this retreat is not just to experience the culmination of these tools in the serene set & setting of the Rising Spirit Retreat Centre, but that you learn how to incorporate them into your daily routine they may continue to enrich your life and expand your conscious connection with Self, Source, and Others.
