Awaken Your Sacred Powers with davidji in the Mexican Riviera
November 25-December 2, 2017
Event Tuition: $1,075
A brand new event… brand new curriculum… brand new experiences. This Thanksgiving is the inaugural unveiling of this fusion of timeless wisdom and real-world practical application in a radically new format – the very first Meditated & Liberated Retreat.
To be fully Meditated & Liberated is to fully surrender to the divine – deepening your spiritual practice, destressifying your body & mind; healing your heart; achieving greater balance; finding your inner strength; learning to make more conscious choices; and learning to live what really makes you happy. And we do this through the process of our awakening your Sacred Powers based on my newest book – Sacred Powers: Awakening Your Best Version – scheduled for release 10 days after the retreat.
So, if you are finding yourself at a crossroads, a fork in the road, a dead end, or a place of confusion, allow me & these teachings to be a soothing balm to your pain… a light of hope in your darkness… and a whisper of clarity & comfort to your heart as together we awaken your best version and take a step in the direction of your dreams. Spend a week with me and emerge renewed, transformed and alive!!
Curriculum: Transformation is Evolution
The Sacred Powers are as old as the heavens and have guided man & womankind toward powerful transformation as long as the stars have dotted the night sky. But their teachings have been lost in the swirl, speed, and complexity of our modern world, which has more moving parts, more people, and more scenarios than ever existed before.
In every moment, you have the ability to make the most brilliant choice – the one that will align you with the Universe; the one that will take your life to the next level; the one that will awaken the magnificence that rests at your very core. Yes, you have sacred powers of transformation resting deep within. Not simply the power to change – (although change might seem really refreshing right now) – but to truly transform your life to a place of deep fulfillment. Change is different than transformation. You can change the channel; you can change your hair color – whatever you change, you can always change back. But with transformation, there’s no going back.
I’ve joined forces with Libby Carstensen – a brilliant teacher, a powerful yogi, and a beautiful expression of these timeless teachings – and she & I have created the Meditated & Liberated experience. Libby is a highly sought after speaker, teacher, and lifestyle coach. Her unique and humorous perspective on taking life experience and making it an opportunity for personal growth is a fresh approach to overcoming adversity. Instead of thinking about the worst-case scenario Libby encourages her community and clients to ask, “What’s the best that could happen?” Libby trained under me for eight years during my tenure as dean of Chopra Center University & it was my privilege to certify her as an instructor of meditation, yoga, and Ayurveda. As a former radio personality and radio program director along with her participation on Chopra Center’s executive leadership team Libby brings a unique understanding of challenges in today’s world for balance and a constantly changing definition of success. For years, we worked closely together , and sharing present-moment-awareness techniques throughout the US & Canada.
Together again, Libby & I will translate enduring wisdom into practical real-world processes for becoming your best version through the process of Awakening Your Sacred Powers by:
- Explore the 5 Divine Principles, the eternal teachings embedded in them, and the sacred powers waiting to be awakened within you;
- Embark on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment;
- Let go of what no longer serves you, and embrace what does;
- Learn to move beyond the confines of conditioned behavior;
- Re-set, re-calibrate, and re-invent our dream life;
- Receive a depth of love and support that can only be delivered in these small group destination immersions;
- Open our hearts to the truth of our magnificence.
What to Expect
