Breathing and Meditation: Ancient Origin, Life Skills Today
Costa Rica March 16-25, 2024
An Experiential Retreat in the Natural World
Join this exclusive retreat in the tropical jungle on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica for nine nights and ten days. Receive certification in breathing and meditation from the ZenSpot Institute and its master teachers. In this immersive experience you will learn Indian yogic, Buddhist and Taoist breathing and meditation practices. These practices are timeless, for they have stood the test of time, and are readily applied in our daily world. Cultivated and handed down through rich traditions and discrete lineage lines for thousands of years you too can join in the transmission of these ancient practices, nurturing yourself and helping to heal the world.
This Retreat is suitable for anyone wishing to develop personal skills to reduce anxiety and heal, for current practitioners, for those seeking specialized training, those pursuing a 200 or 500-hour YTT, 200-hour qigong certification or generalized Taoist lifestyle and for those who simply want to expand their life skills and nurture their spirit in these uncertain times.
Welcome to one of the most diverse and natural habitats on earth and to the practices of melding with the cosmos. Experience firsthand the Two and/or Three Toed Sloth, the Capuchin and Howler Monkeys and the Toucan to name a few. In the words of Edward Abbey, “May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing views.” Costa Rica offers some of the best vantage points on Earth and the chance for up close experiences with the natural world.
