“A Woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture, and transform.” (Diane Mariechild) This quote summarizes the energy we created during the retreat in a loving, powerful, joyous and blissful moment. The program was really filled with many activities. Didi Ananda Acira started with Yoga to Strengthen the Anahata Cakra, and also gave a class about Meditation and Mantra, then everybody was singing Kiirtana with Lalita Marmika, and meditating for mind-expansion to unite the unit with the Supreme. Afterward, everybody enjoyed a sentient vegan food as their lunch, and the program continued with face detox and Yoga Nidra, a step-by-step deep relaxation guided by Didi. Sister Mariscela Alvarez from Peru made everybody move gracefully with gentle Chi Kung exercises and conscious breathing. Celebrating the Women through the Heartbeat of the Mother Drum drumming circle was lead by Mariscela, and everybody freely expressed themselves through the dance. In between the programs, we had a spiritual game, where everybody connects to each other and sees their reflection in a positive way – it was a very touching moment for everyone. In the end, we had gift exchanges and sharing. Everybody felt this program was very empowering, where everybody experienced the ancient practices in the spirit of joy, love, bliss, and laughter as ONE.
