Lakshmi's Spring Renewal Retreat

Bhakti Heart Center, San Juan Island, WA

March 31 - April 2, 2023 

~Explore the abundant nature of Lakshmi, the Goddess of Beauty and Prosperity~ 

Springtime up here on the island is a miraculous time, and nature puts on an extravagant display of beauty and abundance, making the Bhakti Heart Center, with its 10 acres of forest and open spaces, the ideal setting to tap into the energy and delight of Lakshmi and Mother Earth. 

 "Every object, every a jar full of delight." -Rumi

Our days will consist of:

Meditation > to tap into the depths of our knowing that abundance is our true nature 

Pranayama > to clear, ground, and awaken our expansive and breath-filled nature 

Mantra > to activate our gifts of expression through awe, wonder, devotion, and beauty

Asana > to move our bodies reminding ourselves that we are ALIVE and how amazing is that!? 

Storytelling > to delight in the mythology and philosophy of ancient wisdom reminding ourselves of who we truly are - divine beings having very human experiences, connected to Source, as One and never alone. 

Satsang > to connect, share, question, and discover other incredible and wise humans who love and wish to be loved just as deeply as we do

But, wait! There's more...
*We will dive into the many facets of Lakshmi, her shadows, and her light, and discover ways to connect with our own inner abundant nature through connection, ceremony, mantra, and ritual. 
*Share 6 delicious, organic, vegetarian meals, made with love, care, and mantra!
*Free time to explore the forest, walk the trails, and commune with some truly amazing old-growth trees 
*Relax into the healing heat of the infrared sauna
*Sing more kirtan!

The Details


Bhakti Heart Center, San Juan Island, WA  

The Bhakti Heart Center is a small, intimate retreat center located on 10 beautiful forested acres with 180-degree views of the Salish Sea, the Olympic Mountains, and even Mt. Rainier on a clear day. Bald eagles soar overhead, and a red fox may make an appearance, but no matter what, you'll feel the peaceful, healing energy from the moment you step onto the land.
