2018 Crestone, CO - MAHA Mountain Retreat

  • Crestone Mountain Zen Center 2000 Dream Way Crestone, CO 81131 USA (map)

This six day, five night retreat will be a quest to pursue wholeness through immersion into the ancient wisdoms of yoga, Thai massage and Chinese Medicine. Exploring and combining these modalities will guide us toward a deeper connection with oneself and nature. Daily acroyoga practice will awaken our playful nature, and foster effective communication and trust with others. Together we will hike through the mountains, rejuvenate in the hotsprings and reflect on the power of the natural world. It will be a practice in joy & inspiration, grounding & connection, healing & renewal, gratitude & compassion. We will celebrate the upcoming full moon and fall equinox, and the coinciding transition of elements in Chinese Medicine. From the Earth element, associated with Late Summer, we will move into the Metal element, associated with Autumn.

Crestone Mountain Zen Center is a Buddhist monastery set at 8,400 feet in southern Colorado. It is nestled among the rugged 14,000 foot peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and surrounded by 240 acres of piñon pine and juniper forest. The beauty and seclusion of the Center’s location paired with the simple, concentrated and nourishing atmosphere of the Zen monastic setting provide a special environment for contemplation, inquiry and reflection.
