christi05_14webWe are the loving light that beats within the heart of God. We are here to awaken creation to the Divine essence of which we are created.

Being in this light is just an awareness of who you truly are. Dropping the veils of illusion that tell you the stories of separation, illness, fear, defeat and more – brings you a deeper knowing of the loving light you are.

We are in constant change. The opportunity to lift our creation to the living light awareness is always at hand. When we become more attuned to this abundant source that we are and are of, this life , this creation , becomes more play. Even when we are in the middle of a challenging change, we have a deep knowing it is opening us to our unconditional loving light. There is unconditional support and power in the love.

Christi will guide you in the light with spirit as we come together bringing our loving forward. Through meditation, guided processes and processing , your pool of loving light will expand in your awareness . When we know the light as one, we become one with our true essence . It is not a belief , it is an experience. As we know this we have more access to the guidance and creation of the Inner Master with spirit.

Denise Zaverdas will bring her gentle guidance, leading you in 1.5 hours of yoga movement one day, to help the body release what is clearing.

There will also be time on the beach for clearing and movement.

The intention of the retreat is to empower you within your own awareness of the light that you are, living through those spiritual eyes and breath. 

The retreat is being held at The Cottages in Carpinteria California, where we can all be together holding the light. This is a beautiful, playful cluster of bungalows located in the small town of Carpinteria, California just a few miles south of Santa Barbara and few blocks from the beach.

The cottages are about sharing – we will do the best we can in giving you what you need. Lisa Carey is the manager and will handle all your reservation needs. (tel: 805. 566.0701)

Loving Elixir
Workshop
with Christi Mider

Valentine backgroundSUNDAY • March 9 • 1:00-5:00pm • $150
click here to sign-up online

Choosing to know your-self in truth and loving , can seem to be a confusing journey. We start opening the doors to our heart and many emotions, stories, and fears begin to surface, we notice we are holding our breath. These are the veils that we wear, believing they are our truth and identity. We can choose to stay on path, exploring them in the light, bathing in the elixir of healing truth or turn away, staying in the shadows of separation. This journey is a lifetime connected to lifetimes of creation. Coming together with the focus of love and healing spirit, allows the veils to drop, while being supported in a sacred space. You are not alone in this walk, allow yourself to open to all opportunities of healing and growth. The Divine Soul that you are is here to experience as much as it can in the human condition. As you become aware of your true soul self in this condition the journey really begins to take on new meaning and focus. Bringing you back home to your true state of being, which is love. Unconditional co-creating through love. Knowing we make mistakes and learning to love through and past them. Letting go of the past and being open to the unknown in the loving light. Our choices begin to look different when we choose from the wholeness of our Divine self. Grace begins to weave naturally in your every day.

Come explore with spirit in the light. We will allow what is here to come forward. Letting go of blocks that keep us from ourselves and drink in the loving elixir of healing. There will be meditation and processing. Sharing allows all to reflect and release. Come with willingness to see. Change is available with a willing heart.


Eternal Love…Eternal Light
with Christi Mider

christi02_14thumbSATURDAY • FEBRUARY 8 • 2014
2:00-6:00pm • $150
sign-up online here!

We are living love, eternally one with the light. Coming home to our-selves in every breath that brings the loving forward.

Your life is made up experiences that tell you that you are separate in some way, that you are alone or powerless. These illusions are all here to help you know the power of your true self which is love. It is not about staying in the illusion perspective, it is only here to assist you in knowing in every breath, the divine co- creator you are.

 You are walking in this physical body allowing the soul you are to emerge in each experience . The soul is unconditional love and it is game for any experience. This allows the upset of the basic self and loving at the same time, and brings us out of the upset back into the flow of grace.  When we have this experience we know what it is to be in alignment with our soul awareness. Which is ultimately who we are.

What are you focusing on your upset the story or the understanding and growth opportunity that comes through the loving vibration. It is a nuanced practice and experience as you learn to live your life through your God eyes. There is no wrong or right, only choice.

Come and explore the places you hold onto dearly that keep you believing  you  are separate from the Divine love. Come and play in the song of your soul self. Quite the negative noise and hear yourself with spirit as one.

Eating Healthy! Feeling Great!
FOR A LIFE-CLEANSING-CHANGING EXPERIENCE!
We have better access to good, healthy food then ever before in history, and at the same time we confront more mental, emotional and physical imbalances. WHY? Because most of us eat too much, too fast, and too late; for a number of reasons: stress, loneliness, depression, frustration, entertainment, or boredom.

Everything we eat has an impact on how we think, feel, and act. To get and stay healthy we have to clean the mental, emotional and the physical body.

The power of this process lies in the combination of working on all these three bodies.
CLEAR the mental programs and habits that are not serving you anymore.
RELEASE the emotions that are stored in the organs.
CREATE a new relationship with your internal organs and systems that keep you alive.
Feel the difference between being full versus being more FULFILLED.

InrMstrTHUMB

Join us for a light filled healing weekend of inner exploration through meditation, processing and inspirational yoga.

Christi Mider will guide us through inner exploration with spirit. There are paths to be opened in the presence of the light that give us the connection to our inner master. This connection allows us to know ourselves as conduits of God creating a loving world. Our willingness to expand with the light that we are one with , allows our presence of light to touch all we encounter . This can lift our personal life and the collective that we are all affecting as co-creators. Come with an open heart and mind, where there are blocks you will find light and freedom. The love we all are seeking is here within us connected to God the loving source we are one with.

We are love, lets journey deeper into this bringing it forward as our true reality. Lifting our awareness to the joyful loving being and life we are.

More on Christi @ http://www.christimider.com/

Denise Zaverdas will bring a unique blend of Yoga disciplines to support the transition between sitting with the light in process into movement with the light in process.  Incorporating the practices of Yin, Restorative and Vinyasa Flow Yoga, each session will take shape based on our co-creation and energetic needs. This liberating flow of yoga carries the same mindfulness thread throughout, guiding us to find the dynamic rhythm within sourcing light in each movement. Be open to the known and unknown of our bodies and loving.

The intention of this retreat is to bring our expanded awareness of who we are as soul beings living in this body.

We are excited to hold and house our retreat  at The Cottages in Carpinteria California, where we can all be together holding the light. This is a beautiful, playful cluster of bungalows located in the small town of  Carpinteria, California just a few miles south of Santa Barbara and few blocks from the beach.

The cottages are about sharing – we will do the best we can in giving you what you need. Lisa Carey is the manager and will handle all your reservation needs.

WINDOWS into your HEART
with Christi Mider

Saturday • September 21, 2103 • 1:00-6:00pm • $125

christi09_13webSeeing Clearly.
Sharing Clearly.
Standing in the Truth.

This dimension is filled with projections and reflections of our minds. These are illusions with which we are building our lives and identifying ourselves. None of this is our true self, our soul self. It is all here for us to play with and learn from. When we are willing to know ourselves as loving, powerful co-creators, we become aware of how our intentions and thoughts create our experience.

If we set something in motion from a half truth or manipulation, we are muddying the creation and will have challenges come forward that seem unloving. Creating from truth and clarity, standing in this without fear, and with loving intention, allow flow. You will be met by the same intention you put out. Remember you are looking through your own windows of memories and beliefs. When you fall into deception , hiding or hurt, these are only your stories, and you will create more of this.

Clean your windows and look for the clear loving truthful path and your heart and dreams will be met with overflow. Do not dirty the view with your need to control , allow the light and love to flood though your fears, and experience who you are.

Open your window and receive all that is and that you are in the loving light. Join me along with a small group, and we will explore and clear the blocks and illusions that are ready for loving, healing, and polishing with light. There will be meditation and sharing. Clean your windows of the negative illusion and you will see the path has no limitations in the loving.

No beginning, no ending. Only unconditional loving creation.

The Breath, the Belly & Uddiyana Bandha

with Erika Hewitt
Sunday • May 20 • 2012 • 2:30-4:30pm • $25

Bandha is the Sanskrit work for “lock” or “seal.” Prana is the animating life force, our vital energy, that’s carried on the breath. This workshop will deconstruct Uddiyana Bandha, or upward abdominal lock, a powerful way of moving and channeling prana. Uddiyana necessarily involves Jalandhara Bhanda, or chin lock, and Mula Bhanda, root lock, which we’ll also explore. Used together, these techniques for manipulating the breath guide prana into channels that deepen the physical practice of Yoga. They also develop the intimate relationship between the body and the mind, taking Yoga practice beyond the physical level.

Our workshop will begin with gentle pranayama and navel-gazing. We’ll transition into deep core work to awaken both the abdominal muscles and the inner, subtle body. With that awareness built, we’ll focus intently on exercises for all levels — vocal, muscular, and breath-related — to explore Uddiyana Bandha and Jalandhara Bandha. Advanced students will have the opportunity to work on nauli, abdominal churning. We’ll end with gentle self-massage and a well-deserved savasana.

Please note:
 This workshop is most appropriate for students who have been practicing yoga for at least one year and have some familiarity with ujjayi breathing. Please bring a yoga mat and a small towel, and wear a top or shirt that can be lifted to expose the stomach. Please do not eat for 2-3 hours before the workshop.
