We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us. Joseph Campbell
The Path and Practice of Meditation
Yoga Yoga Westgate, December 3, 2 – 4:30 pm
Have you been curious about meditation, but feel intimidated to try it? Or perhaps you are looking to refresh an already established practice.
Do you feel like you have been trying too hard to do the practice of meditation? (Hint, meditation is a practice of Being in our direct experience)
Do you struggle with judging your practice? (Hint, there is no good or bad meditation)
Do you think your practice is not working because life still does not feel easy? While my life continues to have its ups and downs, this practice has been transformative to my experience.
In this afternoon workshop, we will clear some of the lingering misconceptions of meditation practice. I will share with you a high level orientation to the methods, and I will guide you through a ground level, direct experience of what cannot be conveyed in words. I hope to bring the practice of meditation alive for you and to make it accessible in your daily life.
Our time will include both group and partner discussion/exploration, as well as receiving multiple guided practices, including a closing iRest® yoga nidra meditation. For more information on iRest® yoga nidra meditation, please visit www.irest.us.
Meditation practice is not about trying to throw ourselves away to become something better. It is about befriending who we are already. Pema Chodron

An iRest® Yoga Nidra Meditation Series
Small Group Experience, 4 weeks, October – November
I am happy to share my first four week iRest® yoga nidra meditation series from my home studio. This small group gathering (limited to ~8) will be an invitation to slow down, simplify and arrive as you are. Our time will be devoted both to retreating inward and connecting with others.
The theme for this four week series will be to reawaken the quality of maitri (friendliness) toward ourselves and to recover the feeling of safety, well-being and ease from within. While transformative on its own, this work is also the foundation for deepening self-inquiry. Please follow the link below for more details on the series, location and commitment.
Simplicity of Being Retreat
A Yoga and Meditation Immersion
with Sheila Singh & Karlie Lemos
7 nights, March 17-24, 2018 (Only 3 double occupancy casitas left)
This time will be an opportunity to slow down, simplify and restore. As we take time to fall away from the busyness of our lives and the drive of our roles and responsibilities, we can begin to retreat within, nourish and gently align with our heart’s calling.
We have chosen a retreat space that rests directly on the shores of Tulum and will be private, limited to a small group of about sixteen. We hope this combination will allow for nourishment, warmth of community and nature. We will offer daily practices that will include meditation, deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and all levels yoga asana. You can set your agenda or have none at all , allowing the moment to guide and nourish you.
I am grateful to offer this experience alongside Karlie Lemos. If this resonates with what your heart has been calling for, I would love for you to join us.
Three, double occupancy casitas are left. Below is the link for more detailed information on the retreat.
