For those of you who have been following me for the past few months, you already know about the amazing woman I met in Israel – my fellow wander gatherer, beach runner and an incredibly gifted and compassionate yoga and meditation teacher – Anat Zahor. It is for her that I am writing this entry.
This December, Anat will be offering a few yoga and meditation retreats at the Alya Retreat Center
in San Juanillo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. From December 1-7, she will conduct a Yoga & Meditation Retreat
which will allow its participants to deepen their yoga and meditation practice by connecting to their minds and bodies while living in perfect harmony with Mother Nature, eating healthy, organic food from the center’s garden and enjoying the unspoiled beauty of Costa Rica. From December 15-21, a Silence and Mindfulness Retreat
will allow its participants to enjoy a moment-to-moment intimate spiritual experience through Samatha (calm abiding) and Vipassana (insight wisdom) meditation. The unification of these two practices leads to a clear and direct experience of the nature of all things and to a real change of perception and understanding of the world.
Anat’s life companion, Dr. Reuven Barak will be
offering a Detox Cleansing Retreat
at the center from December 8-14 and 22-28. A daily diet of fresh, organic vegetables and fruits and techniques from traditional Chinese medicine, will cleanse your body of the toxins and poisons it collects on a daily basis. A physician with over 30 years of experience in both conventional medicine and alternative healing methods, Dr. Barak will also be available throughout December for personal appointments and treatments in Traditional Chinese Medicine
(Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Moxibustion, Cupping, Tui-Na, Chinese nutritional therapy) and Western Natural Nutrition, Hypnotherapy and Homeopathy.
Don’t miss this amazing opportunity.
