Summer Solstice Retreat

When: June 17 – 23, 2020
Where: Hollyhock, Cortes Island
Join Mara for her third annual retreat at Hollyhock on Cortes Island. Dive deep in your yoga and meditation practice, practice the art of ritual, honour the power of the sun and rekindle the light within. Gourmet vegetarian food, endless hours immersed in nature, this retreat is truly transformative.

As you know, it was my first time at both yoga & a yoga retreat.  My body loves yoga now, so I have included your wonderful Gaia yoga video clips into my daily/weekly life post-retreat.  Your friend Charlene is correct that you are a spiritual body having a human experience.  Thanks again, Mara, we love you!

With Mara, you are in the presence of love and unconditional acceptance. I had planned on engaging in the mentorship program for some time before I actually reached out and committed. It was so worth it. I was felling so out of touch with myself on many levels. Following my first session, I noticed some pretty profound shifts….which is not usually my experience. Mara introduced me to simple daily practices that had a big impact. She seamlessly weaves skills and knowledge with her warm, caring, vibrant personality which is what makes her so authentically her.  One of the aspects I appreciated the most was that she met me where I was at; she took into account my hectic schedule, providing me with practices and sessions which I needed for where I was. And when I would lose touch with the practices and homework, she was validating, understanding, and used her creativity to figure out how to make the practice work for me in a way that I could do it. In addition to these practices, the other shamanic practices were incredibly powerful and healing. She is such a gift and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She truly helped me find my way back to myself. Although my mentorship is complete, I know I will continue working with her and I’m so excited about what the future holds in our work together.

Today marks my last mentor session with Mara Branscombe. What a beautiful journey we did together. We both witnessed transformational work that happens when one is ready to shed down layers of the old/past and eagerly stepping into a new life chapter, shape shifting into a new version of reality. I am forever grateful for the container in which I felt safe, supported, listened to, and loved. I highly recommend her yoga classes, one of the best, her workshops, her retreats, her mentorship. Her everything.

Mara is an extraordinary teacher and healer.  During our mentorship, she lovingly and gently held space for me and the process. Drawing on her diverse and deep wisdom she provided me with tools to take into my own experience and practice.  Since working with Mara my creativity and productivity is flourishing and I feel blessed to have more knowledge upon which to draw as I continue on my own path.  Simply put, Mara’s ability to elevate and move from a place of intuition in supporting those she works with is magic.
