Goodbyes and Onward.

Given the wide range of topics being discussed, I suggest that you consider bringing some form of medium for note taking so that you can fully participate in the discussion of the presented topics. I will clearly describe the form of these talks, because this format is not a speech or dharma talk as most know it. The intention here is to engage the THINK process of all involved. You are free to draw your own conclusions. As was the case last year, each participant is required to become a collaborator and co-creator of each and all segments of this Mela. In this sense, we require your full attention. The formal practices boil down to simply following along in a process and protocol explained at our initial meeting. Inside that form, we make it happen both individually and collectively. As in past years, I will be sharing my own meditation energy with all participants. Our work takes place during each segment of the event. This is the time in local space when vital concepts are put into procession. Participation is open to anyone of 18 or more years, in stable physical and psychological condition, and who are interested in deepening their personal connection (yoga) to source. PLEASE NOTE: Many initiated Nathas, climate permitting, conduct their exertions in the nude. This is not mandatory for any participant, but may occur. Be advised. If you would like to attend this rare and potentially profound experience, please email: info@thesanctuarycostarica.com with a short description of who you are and how you have come to be interested in this retreat.
