Dear Friends,

New Moon Blessings and Happy Hanukkah and a shout out to friends from the Esalen Thanksgiving Retreat of which we are feeling the reverberations of great community and the most amazing new moon trillions of stars milky way - the most I have seen in a long time. We want to invite you to our Kerala retreat in February. If you are considering the winter regeneration retreat, it is important to at least put your visa in motion. I suggest the 10 year option - mine runs out next year and I have been to India now 12 times during that visa cycle. We love it so much and I have never been sick from India in those journeys - only regenerated by the Kerala Shakti.

In February, Thiruvanthapuram (Trivandrum) is the site  for the largest gathering of women in the world (last year was 10.5 million) to light the fire to cook for all from the main Shakti temple in Trivandrum. We will not be doing a full teacher training this year (waiting for 2015) but will immerse fully in ten days of Ayurveda treatments and Kalarippayatu as the basis for the Kalari Vinyasa (prep for Kalarippayatu) training.

shiva reaSee you down the road of life...


Antar jyoti, bahir jyoti, pratyak jyoti parathpara,
Jyoti jyoti, swayam jyoti,
Atma jyoti shivosmyaham

I am the effulgence, which is both inside and outside,
The light that is visible as well as transcendent.
Light of all lights, the light of the self-effulgent atman
Filled with auspiciousness am I

Located at the southern tip of India, Kerala is one of the most culturally rich areas of India, and is blessed with lush green coconut palms, forests, paddy fields, rivers and beautiful beaches. We will embody the connection to the elements with outdoor yoga practice under the coconut palm trees in the sacred yoga space that Shiva helped establish in this sanctuary 10 years ago. This year our pilgrimages retreat coincides with the full moon and the auspicious Attukal Pongala, the largest gathering of women in the world for a day of reigniting their fire with the main Shakti temple - an event that blesses men and women as we care for our inner fire collectively. We have the intention of having Darshan with the living saint, Ammachi (depending on her program dates) and pilgrimage to local temples.
