Lunar Alchemy: Realign, Reconnect, Recalibrate

With Dana Damara, Michele Clark-Dougherty, Avelino May Xul and LSR Team

April 9 - 14, 2017

Attune yourself to Tulum’s magical existence as you restore your connection to Mother Earth, swim in the turquoise water, and explore ancient Mayan ruins.  We travel to Tulum at the Full Moon in Libra.

Treat yourself to a week of sun, surf, sand and yoga. Join Dana Damara in Tulum, Mexico on her second retreat with Life Source Retreats to rejuvenate the body and mind with daily yoga, meditation, and pranayama.

Why the Full Moon?  Because when we align ourselves with the moon and it’s mystical cycles, we can’t help but create magic within ourselves and in our life. Tulum will be a great place to manifest all of this.

During this retreat you will have the opportunity to experience:  yoga, meditation, energy healing, a Mayan Clay Circle, Temazcal, Full Moon Ceremony, drumming, dance, Shakti practices, excursions, and time alone to recharge, realign and reconnect.  

This retreat is also worth 20 hours toward your Embody Truth Yoga Teacher Training 500 Hour Program.  If you are enrolled in our 500 Hour Program, speak to Dana directly about using these hours for Teacher Training fulfillment.
