De-Clutter Your Soul - Costa Rica retreat & workshop February 2016

Come de-clutter your heart, mind and soul with me next month in lush, sunny Costa Rica.

February 21st - 27th 2016

Stefan Wenger and I are co-hosting a beautiful workshop centered around the theme of Presence Through Play, in our dear friend Johanna's beautiful new retreat center near Lake Arenal. Using the tools of expandance mindful movement and comedy improv to get centered, get joyful, and get creative, we'll spend a week learning to love each moment and every part of ourselves, and we'll come home feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.

We'll also have the opportunity to eat incredible, home made, locally grown food, swim in the river on the property, lounge in hammocks, and get totally blissed out listening to the birds and feeling the warmth of the sun and the cool of the mountain breezes on our skin.

Sound good? Places are limited and already filling up. Check out the full website for all info or go straight here to book!

We'll see you there :)

- Rachel & Stefan

expandance is a healing movement technique that combines over a decade of Transforming Cellular Memory healing and facilitation with over 25 years of dance training and teaching. 

The technique has helped many people overcome chronic pain, prevent injury, become more centered and less anxious, relax into the present moment, unblock creativity, learn how to work and move in a more collaborative manner, and overcome performance fear. This workshop is open to anyone wanting to take some time out for nurturing, peace and creativity in magical, warm Costa Rica. Enjoy home-made, locally-sourced, buffet-style healthy and delicious food, tropical birds and flowers, sun, and a beautiful place to stay at Lake Arenal, all at an incredibly reasonable price.

"My greatest lessons from expandance have ultimately been about fearlessness. The meditative technique goes beyond other types of sitting or moving meditation I've practiced. That is, it accesses deep awareness, calm acceptance, and loving-kindness...and also manages to make me feel like a better communicator and more confident in general. This technique has allowed me to give myself permission to take risks...at work, at play, and in my relationships with other people."
- Erica Frankel, NYC

“For me, the two most powerful things that I’ve received from expandance so far, are experiencing what my body is capable of and wants to do - I had never been invited to move in that way before - and getting Divine Light into the body in a way that can be difficult to do if you’re not using the body.” 
- Caitlin Kelley, NYC, November 2013

"Living Forest, what a place! Everything about the place is perfect. The workshop was life changing, the location, the comfort of sitting in the workshop space, the views of the amazing jungle like trees surrounding the workshop space, with the odd howler monkey visiting! The passing exotic birds, the hospitality and warmth of the owner Johanna, and the natural swimming pool by the river, and as for the food! Deeelicious! A piece of paradise!" 
- Sharon, Ireland
