Manifesting Your Intention Day Retreat

Create Your Sankalpa

Based on Rod Stryker’s book The Four Desires

February 3, 9 AM – 4 PM

This retreat is based on Rod Stryker’s book The Four Desires: Creating a Life of Purpose, Happiness, Prosperity and Freedom.

The New Year brings the opportunity to set resolutions.  The Yoga tradition informs us that a resolution must be a heartfelt desire and aligned with the Soul in order to be achieved.  

The Four Desires offers us a profound process to uncover intentions that we can harness and manifest!

Through yoga, meditation, writing exercises and interaction with a community of seekers, (Sangha), you will not only identify a powerful New Year’s resolution, but learn what stands in your way.

Tuition: $145, includes Ayurvedic vegetarian lunch and teas! Space is limited to 10.
