Week 1: Led by HeARTist, Poet, Musician, Producer,
Graphic Artist Rico Riconekt Padilla

Week one is for passionate creatives who are wanting to go deep with others in a cocoon of artistic expression and exploration. Whether you're a seasoned artist or musician wanting space to play and create some new material, or a beginner wanting support to get your juices flowing this retreat will be a supportive space for people at all levels of experience...

Imagine jam sessions and dance parties every day, making art together at the beach, getting inspiration from the elements and creatures of the jungle, and dropping into local events like open mics, ecstatic dance, drum circles, song circles and more!

Rico and other local artists will offer workshops and private sessions you can opt-in for, and if you're interested you could lead the group in a practice at some point during the week too.

Every day will be a dynamic mixture of group time to share what you're working on and get feedback, and free time to be in your creative flow.

Week 2: Led by Quantum MUse, Ecotherapist, Dancer, Community Builder, Holistic Coach and Facilitator Lotus Sattva

Week two is for people passionate about conscious relating and the power of intimacy for spiritual connection, self awareness, healing and growth. We will be deepening our connection with self, others and source in a unified field of compassion, authenticity and trust that embraces vulnerability and supports a grounded exploration of your edges, passions, blocks and desires.

To deepen connection with self we will be meditating and doing personal reflection using journaling or other expressive practices. Bring your favorite mediums for self expression to draw, paint, sing, write, play or otherwise let the inspiration flow through you...

To deepen connection with others, we will do relational practices like council, small group and partner exercises, cuddling, massage, dance, authentic relating, mens/womens circles and forum. Kanixa will also lead practices throughout the week building off of the Ipsalu Cobra Level 1 Intensive (happening 3/15-18 down the street) offering an opportunity to explore non-sexual tantra incorporating breathwork, yoga, meditation and ritual.

To deepen connection with source this will be an immersion into ecosexuality ~ a philosophy of connecting with nature as an act of union...Imagine rolling in black sand at a nude beach, swimming in deep ocean waters, soaking in cool mermaid pools and hot springs, descending into a volcanic cave, delighting in the sounds and sights of the living jungle around you...

This week will be especially bonding, and can support both singles and couples to open up more to pleasure, trust and love.

We have an application process and will be having calls with folks to ensure the best alignment for participants for both weeks.
