Catherine Ann Jones: “What Story Are You Living"

June 16-19, 2022

What Story Are You Living? is a workshop for both writers and non-writers guided by award-winning playwright, author and screenwriter, Catherine Ann Jones. This workshop was developed at the Esalen Institute and inspired her award-winning book,

“Heal Your Self with Writing is an elixir for the soul.” – Psychology Today

Our lives may be determined less by past events than by the way we remember them. You are invited on an inner adventure, a journey of discovery and re-visioning through focused journaling. Throughout the sessions, you will be guided through focused journaling exercises designed to facilitate healing and transformation from within. Remembering our story through focused journaling enables us to make meaning out of memory and to put the past in perspective. Healing then takes place one individual, one tribe, at a time. What story are you living? Join the journey to awakening your authentic self.

Catherine Ann Jones, M.A. in depth psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute where she has also taught, an award-winning author, playwright (Calamity Jane, On the Edge, The Women of Cedar Creek, Freud’s Oracle) and screenwriter (The Christmas Wife -Four Emmy nominations, Unlikely Angel, Touched by an Angel series).

Mariana Ramirez: "Fortalece tu Mente y Alma con Ayurveda"

June 16-19, 2022

This programs is designed for women and will be offered in Spanish. If interested in the English version, please contact the presenter at marinela29@gmail.com

La mente es una parte tan sutil de nuestra existencia, sin embargo, puede tener un impacto masivo en nuestras vidas. ¿Cómo podemos equilibrar a la mente cuando es tan difícil hacerlo con algo tangible como lo es el cuerpo? Ayurveda, una de las ciencias Védicas, ofrece un enfoque holístico hacia la salud mental y emocional conservando a la vez su esencia espiritual. En este retiro, los participantes aprenderán la perspectiva de Ayurveda sobre la mente, completarán una evaluación sobre su estado mental, y aprenderán diferentes recomendaciones naturales para crear equilibrio. Estas recomendaciones incluyen: dieta, hierbas, sahumerios, pranayama (técnicas de respiración), Abhyanga (automasaje) y yoga terapéutico. Los participantes de este programa se adentrarán en la sabiduría de Ayurveda mientras disfrutan los olores, colores, sabores, sonidos, y texturas de la montaña de forma recreativa y terapéutica. Este programa está diseñado para mujeres y se ofrecerá en español.

Mariana Ramírez es Consejera de Bienestar de Ayurveda y miembro de la Asociación Nacional Médica de Ayurveda. Ella también posee una Licenciatura en Sociología y tiene amplia experiencia profesional en el campo de Salud Pública. Mariana inició su camino espiritual en el 2011, cuando renunció a relaciones y compromisos para ir en busca de su yo interno. Esta búsqueda la llevó a un viaje de un año por América Latina donde ella vivenció una reconexión consigo misma, con otros y con la naturaleza. Una vez de regreso a los Estados Unidos, Mariana sintió el llamado de continuar desarrollando esta reconexión, con el propósito de compartir su conocimiento con otros. Fue ahí cuando se encontró y enamoró de Yoga y Ayurveda. Aparte de ser una madre dedicada para su bella hija, Mariana tiene el propósito de continuar proporcionando recursos holísticos que apoyen a personas a una reconexión consigo mismos, con otros y con la naturaleza. Y, de esta manera crear espacio para la sanación, para crear la mejor versión de sí mismos y compartir esta versión con el mundo.

UFC- ULTIMATE FATHERLESS CAMP

August 4-7, 2022

I was born in Mexico,  I have 2 brothers and 2 Sisters.  My Dad separated from my mom when I was in diapers. When I was helpless and unaware of my need. I grew up with no father figure.  My step father’s. Just feed my emptiness.  I remember always wanting to be away from home.  I developed animosity towards one of my younger brothers for no reason (I thought?).

I found out about a school that I could live at. I wanted to go. But my mom had no money so I looked for work.  A man from our  church said, I can work with him. I was happy I could finally work and escape the chaos at home.  Well things got worse…

Today I am broken and healed at the same time.  I have realized that in my weakness…God is made strong.  I have learned through getting support (counseling),  that it is not the circumstances that will show me Gods Love but it is through my circumstances Gods love is made known. God has used other men to embrace me and tell me He Loves me and wants to continue to bring healing to my brokenness.  He wants to be my father I never had.  He wants to be everything to me.  Come and see, who He really is.
