“Make me an instrument of Thy peace." —St. Francis of Assisi

Enjoy a day that is designed to serve as a bridge from the body to the soul.

This retreat day will be a time to slow down long enough and dive deeply enough to access that felt-sense of being vibrantly alive and focused. With instruction, practice, reflection and connection, we will appreciate the body/mind as an instrument of peace.

As we discover and uncover ways to access our wisdom and truth we will enjoy two yoga sessions (one active, one more restorative), community check in times, free time outdoors in the silence, a delicious vegetarian lunch and a special teaching wrapped around the creating of a delicious vegan appetizer.

Julianne Shivani Rice, C-IAYT, a certified Hatha Yoga teacher and an IAYT certified Yoga Therapist has her roots with CSE. She was initiated by her spiritual teacher, Yogacharya O’Brian, in the early 1990s. Shivani was manager and lead hatha yoga teacher at CSE for 25 years. She currently teaches online and leads retreats at the Land of Medicine Buddha.

Divya Zuccaro was certified for Relax With Yoga in the Integral Yoga tradition in 1997. Since then, she's been privileged to lead tens of thousands of yoga classes. She is the conceiver, co-creator, and happy proliferator of the Meditation Sampler program and feels especially fortunate to offer meditation guidance for women with cancer through WomenCare of Santa Cruz. So inspired by the centering effects of yoga and meditation, in 2015 Divya earned certifications for various methods of hypnotherapy and, that same year, started a wellness business called Calm Together.
