"I want to know
if you know
how to melt into that fierce heat of living
falling toward
the center of your longing"

A WINTER RETREAT IN COSTA RICA

REST, RENEWAL AND RE-CREATION

with DAVID WHYTE

Rest is the conversation between what we love to do and how we love to be. - David Whyte

January 14th - 21st, 2023

LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE

Join David Whyte for a week of poetry, insight, sun, sea and yoga at Blue Spirit Retreat Center, an architecturally splendid facility in Costa Rica, built above the broad Pacific.

On his last visit to Blue Spirit, David met two marvelous practitioners - Leslie and Jeff Jones, who introduced him to the art form Afro-Flow yoga. Their own description of its effect: Grounding, Energizing, Rhythmic, Peaceful - is more than accurate.  We are very happy to welcome their musical and rhythmic genius to join us for a daily offering.

David will speak in the morning, offering poetry and thoughtful commentary as a foundation for the day's conversation, followed by a shorter talk in the afternoon. As the focus of the week is rest and rejuvenation,  there will be plenty of time for you to choose from a variety of activities in support of well-being:  yoga, swimming, longevity teachings, walks, and - most importantly - time for contemplation.

To rest is to fall back, literally or figuratively, from outer targets and shift the goal not to an inner static bull's eye, an imagined state of perfect stillness, but to an inner state of natural exchange.
