A Desire Map and Yoga Weekend Retreat with Compass YVR on Bowen Island
Calling all free spirits, dreamers, change makers and the wild at heart!
Compass YVR presents a weekend of Desire Mapping & Yoga, with Chantal Russell and Justyna Zarzeczny, at Bowen Island Yoga.
Recharge in nature and reconnect to your most essential self. Connect with other empowered, creative and entrepreneurial women, and discover how you want to feel in your business and your life.
The Desire Map is a program for clarifying what you truly want in every area of your life, and using that powerful awareness to guide your every day choices.
Together, we will explore our WHY, and re-ignite the reasons we do what we do, infusing more passion and purpose into it all. We’ll look at our perceptions around “feelings” and goal setting. We’ll examine how we drive and strive, and see where in our lives we experience freedom — and where we want more of it.
You will be guided through 5 life areas, to explore your most desired feelings in:
• Lifestyle + Livelihood
• Creativity + Learning
• Body + Wellness
• Relationships + Society
• Essence + Spirituality
Together we will create sacred space, (inner and outer) and burn limiting beliefs (figuratively, and maybe literally.) As we go soul deep with desire mapping, we’ll bend our bodies with yoga, spend time in nature, and open our minds to infinite possibilities. We’ll offer up our own wisdom, relate, and learn from each other — like women always do.
You’ll leave this workshop knowing your core desired feelings – a guidance system for your decision-making. A COMPASS for your soul. You will make some soul-anchored declarations and attach them to some every day PLANS. Poetic to the practical.
Are you ready for soul liberation?
NOTE: Plan for aha’s and alleluias. After declaring their core desired feelings, people have been known to make changes and experience a renewed sense of purpose and direction.
