CONNECTING TO SOURCE : Yoga, Meditation & Ritual

Join us on an unforgettable 5-day celebration discovering the art of breath, the healing of yoga, the transformative powers of soul care practices, and the mindful awareness of meditation.

When: July 12 – 17, 2024

Where: Hollyhock Cortes Island Retreat Centre


Since ancient times, the human collective has aligned with the seasons, the elements, the rhythms of the sun, the moon, and the earth as a way to source pure energy and connect to one’s inner compass. The mind-body science of yoga, combined with the practice of meditation, breath-work, and the alchemy of earth based rituals creates a channel that leads to present moment awareness, mind-body-spirit integration, and a wild transformation within.

As the summer cycle comes into fullness, we can honour the earth’s dynamic time of expansion, growth, abundance and harvest. As we attune to the earth’s rhythm, may we take this opportunity to embody a parallel path of healing, connection and deep self love.

Join us on an unforgettable 5-day celebration discovering the art of breath, the healing of yoga, the transformative powers of soul care practices, and the mindful awareness of meditation. We will be cultivating a deeper connection to the realm of spirit, the lunar cycle, the 5 elements, and with a like-minded community to celebrate the gifts we can share with the world.

During our time together, you will experience:

  • guided meditation
  • vinyasa and restorative yoga
  • movement practices to increase inner radiance
  • guided pranayama (breath work)
  • outdoor, earth based ritual practices
  • guided journal sessions
  • chanting and spirit circles: sharing, visioning, and fire and water ceremony

This program is for anyone who wishes to connect with their true self, regardless of age or experience.

Part of my work this incarnation is to find my place.  I have always known this challenge.  While I sat and listened to the stories of 39 kindred sisters, I would hear my own voice join in.  My voice came from deep in my being, sometimes startling me because it was as if another were speaking through me.  But the best part was feeling I fit in.  I had a place among these sisters and their love drowned any doubt that was lingering.  It was divine intervention that got me to your retreat.  It was time.  I bow to the gift you bring to this world dear Mara.

My 3rd year in a row with Mara at Haramara and it was every bit as rejuvenating as year one. I consider this Radiant Soul week to be an essential yearly retreat to become my best self.

Jill Donohue

This retreat was a deep remembering, reminding, and rekindling for me. It was an honour to be there as one of the elders, it was similar to being a grandparent rather than a parent. The lens was different, softer, for me. I took myself as myself in the moment without the fears of being someone, something that my mind thought I “should” be. Largely, it was because, I have finally grown into my own skin, heart and soul, and also largely, spiritually because of your beautiful open hearted teachings. Thank you, with deepest deepest gratitude.
Badge Bourcier

Making my way back home and thinking about this past week with profound gratitude for you and this retreat experience! From the grace, compassion and depth of knowledge you share at every session to the raw beauty of the space and the coastal setting, it was simply magical. I definitely feel like it was a much needed reset for me. Thank you again for leading us all.
