I find that there is majesty in rituals and celebrations when the intention is about honouring the moment:  the moment of birth; the moment of marriage; the moment of death; the moment of hope when wishing anew at the start of a new year.  And always, simply always, the moment when we fall in love again.

UNWRAPPING SOUL LANGUAGE: THE GIFT WITHIN/ Rancho La Puerta, Tecate, Mexico, December 03 to 10, 2011
Summary: Anya invites you to immerse yourself in tranquility of mind, body and spirit as you listen to the language of mystics, poets and writers illuminate their authentic journeys. Hearing the language of soulful writers and creative thinkers soothes the spirit, stills the mind, and relaxes the body. From the place of inner quietude and deep listening, you are then beckoned to open the doorway to your soul's language. Arrived to the mystical place within, you will easily find the language to write the words that are longing to be written, illuminating your expression of heart and soul.

Rancho La Puerta, created in 1940 is in a sheltered valley in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico, only an hour’s drive from San Diego.  Since 1940 Rancho La Puerta has become the paradigm of all multi-day “destination spa” vacations that encompass health and wellness for mind, body and spirit.

 

"Never in all my many travels around the globe have I ever felt such peace as I did at Rancho. The food, the environment, the people all wrapped me in a blanket of comforting love."

—Philip Smith, Author of WALKING THROUGH WALLS and former editor, GQ, January 2009

I am invited to lead a special inner focus week at Rancho La Puerta from December 03 to 10, 2011.  Be with me in Mexico at a most beautiful time of year.  It is a week open to men and women at this Mexican spa resort.

 

Anya Ushakova-Crain, Master of Arts in Organizational Development and Transformation, former PhD student of Transformative Leadership Studies and writer, designs and leads retreats, and writing workshops worldwide. She introduces participants to their own creative expressions and encourages them to write as if their soul language depended on it. She reminds them that no prior writing experience is required to access the language of soul....This week offers a gentle meandering of enchantment that will lead you to the discovery of the gift waiting to be opened by journey’s end: your very own soul language.

Please send a note to Anya Ushakova-Crain through the Contact Link of this website for more information on registration and to be a participant for this special week at Rancho La Puerta.
