Yoga and Meditation: Maria Toso

Non-Violent Communication: Yvette Erasmus

Let Peace back into your life. Get out of your head and into your heart -- let go of mental stress and bodily tension. Learn life changing soma yoga practices, meditation techniques and practice non-violent communication so that you can live from a place of authenticity...communicating maturely and vulnerably your feelings and needs. This is a safe space in the most beautiful nature setting and you will be with like-minded students who are also on the path of becoming more and more real, more and more connected to the heart, taking of leap of faith into a place of being seen and seeing others from a deep place of compassion and empathy. This weekend will be a life-changing milestone. Maria Toso will teach the meditation and soma yoga portion of the program and master NVC facilitator, Yvette Erasmus will lead the NVC exercises.


Join us to connect to your wise inner voice and through safe and gentle experiential activities that will open your heart more deeply to others.

This will be a life changing weekend of deep inner and outer relating. Guided yoga and meditation practice will open and soften you to the practice of NVC (nonviolent communication) which is a way of relating that is growing all over the world. NVC will teach you to move beyond judgment and both experience and express deep authentic empathy; setting a new precedent for what is possible in authentic relationships, and generate radical transformation, personal growth and mindfulness.

The weekend will be a harmonious blend of inner and outer practices, rest and deep connection.

This Spring equinox getaway to the Midwest's most beautiful retreat center with the healthiest and freshest of foods will allow you the needed time and space to focus on deep healing of your body and mind. You will solidly reconnect to your inspired purpose as you realign with your beautiful Spirit through deep meditation practice and healing therapeutic yoga.

We will practice a variety of NVC exercises interspersed with yoga and meditation styles all designed to bring you back to your Self. The rest of the time you will be happily occupied resting or exploring the surroundings of the beautiful and magical Christine Center. The food is prepared daily and is just exquisite and fresh from the earth.
