Navigating Change: A Circles of Trust, Yoga and Surf Program In Panama, Sansara Surf and Yoga Resort, domingo, 03. enero 2021
Life is daunting. The demands and pace of change create a constant set of new challenges. Voyaging in a turbulent ocean of dynamic weather and waves, we can lose track of where we are. We may question where we are going next. We become disoriented.
Each transition in life calls for a renewed process of clarity, compassion and courage. Whether we are facing the inevitable seasons of life in our relationships, our process of aging, our vocations or rekindling our passion and purpose; we can learn to navigate with greater skill. We discover our integrity, wholeness and a more authentic life.
The experience is co-guided by Dan and Robyn Hines. Beautiful Sansara Resort provides a a safe and nurturing venue for this Circle of Trust®, yoga and surf program. Intentional small group practices include inner life teaching of traditional ocean navigation, meditation, deep listening and writing, mindfulness and movement and the art of asking open, honest questions. There is flexible time for a variety of water sports, hiking and biking, bodywork and relaxation. Dan is an international leadership consultant and Courage & Renewal facilitator. Robyn is an experienced yoga instructor and a wellness pracitcioner.
This week long program is for you if:
You want to take your growth to the next level and you’re game for the challenge of introspection toward self-knowledge;
You are rethinking how you want to offer yourself to the world, whether you are in a new place of transition, or hoping to renew your present place with greater meaning and purpose;
You would appreciate learning with a community of diverse learners to discuss the hard work of navigating complex personal and social issues;
You resonate with the Circle of Trust® approach, yoga, movement, and meditation — or you see the potential of these practices and want to know more;
You need a time of renewal and recreation at Sansara to surf, rest, explore, or to engage in lively conversations at the dinner table or around the pool with the energy of the Pacific Ocean at your doorstep.

Carbon Offsets for Air Travel:
Air travel to a destination such as Sansara is a wonderful benefit of modern life but we all know it creates harmful emissions. It is possible to help mitigate travel emissions and lessen our environmental footprint, support innovative emissions reductions projects and ultimately make the responsible decision for our planet when we travel. We suggest Less Emissions for their effective flight calculator, for their use of The Gold Standard to certify projects, and also because they are the official provider for Air Canada.
