Jan 11th-13th: The Yogi Way Temple Retreat with Coach Alvaro
Retreat two days from mechanical, habitual living, opening to simplicity of temple life and purely work on ourselves. It was a retreat that brings a lot of moments of withdrawal our senses from externally oriented to keeping the consciousness internally. At the beginning, there might be a lot of thoughts before the connection as of some denial and doubts... After, the moments come with the mind seeking the purpose strongly while somehow superficially digging the values and believes or what are the tracks that are meaningful and important in life and why. Well, at the end, even when that ideas dismissed, a moment or two, if practice the BEING in its naturalness, the connection with serenity starts to take over. no need to talk more, just OM......

Oct 20th-22nd: Balanced Grace Temple Taiji Retreat with Coach Tommy
So here I am, waking up this morning I felt that nice feeling of being alive, the muscles hurt and tell you that the training was good enough and need some rest.
Staying in a temple is a very demanding task for those who can not enjoy themselves; the day seems unending if you are wandering into time (one dimension of life ) without any destination, but mix a few ingredients and the job might be done. First of all bring the right attitude, when we live in the city we are spoiled by many things, we have our comforts, our unhealthy habits and a lot of superficiality, many things draw our attention away from the inner self. When you step into a temple remind yourself that you are in a holy place, remind yourself that you are the Spirit and you will automatically find the connection within. As a matter of fact we should always remember ourselves what we are great. I always find it nourishing to put myself in the shoes of one of those great and dignified leaders of past, who speak about honour and truth and everywhere they go, they are surrounded by a glowing aura of vibrations. This is a technique that works well for me.
