Costa Rica Week 3 | Omega

Workshop

Costa Rica Week 3

Jan 20 - Jan 27 2018 Costa Rica
Omega Costa Rica offers extraordinary programs at Blue Spirit, January through March, 2018.

This week at Omega Costa Rica, you can explore a revolution of consciousness, unlock your erotic intelligence, or learn to become more resilient. You can also discover ways to transform your relationship with money, immerse yourself in ecstatic dance, restorative yoga, or qigong, or learn to find fulfillment in the present moment.

Workshops meet each day (except Wednesday) in the morning and afternoon. Sample from a variety of programs with Omega’s acclaimed teachers, choosing a new workshop each day, if you like. Or, abandon your schedule, head to the beach to rest and relax, and take time to enjoy the fun and invigorating evening activities at Blue Spirit.

Sample from any or all of the following workshops during Week 3.

A Revolution in Consciousness
Crossing the Perception Bridge
John Perkins
Human perceptions have created the wars, pollution, species extinctions, social injustices, and other crises that currently threaten our planet. We are at the frontier of a world-changing revolution—a consciousness revolution. It will redefine relationships between perceived and objective reality and the impact we humans have on both. John Perkins—a trained shaman and former "economic hit man" who knows the system from the inside—explains that “objective reality” is dependent on our “perceived realities,” both personal and collective. Discover how we can create “perception bridges” that transport us from one reality (a stressful relationship or job; or a failed economic system) into a new reality (a loving relationship or deeply satisfying job; or an economic system that is itself a renewable resource). Come explore inspirational perspectives on the current problems, along with new solutions.

Mating in Captivity
Unlocking Erotic Intelligence
Esther Perel
Why does great sex so often fade for couples who claim to love each other as much as ever? Why does a good intimate connection not guarantee good sex? Guided by internationally renowned therapist and author Esther Perel, Unlocking Erotic Intelligence advances a bold new take on intimacy and sex. In a fun and safe environment, learn to release erotic blocks, become more open with your partner about your needs, and cultivate novelty, playfulness, and mystery—in and out of the bedroom. Rekindle intimacy, curiosity, and sensuality in your relationship. Couples and individuals of all sexual orientations are welcome.

The Soul of Money
Transforming Your Relationship With Money & Life
Lynne Twist

Chances are your beliefs about money have limited you and your life. For most of us, tangled emotions about money are an obstacle to success. A dysfunctional relationship with money can hold us back from achieving our highest potential. Come experience a new sense of freedom and discover practical tools to transform your relationship with money and life.

Bouncing Back & Bouncing Forward
Transforming Crisis Into Growth

Jack Saul, PhD
Resilience is our capacity to bounce back from challenges and adversity, and to bounce forward to new stages of growth and self-transformation. Learn to map and access resources from the four domains of resilience, our storied pasts, our current ecosystem, our collective group capacities, and our imagined futures. We explore these realms using experiential and artistic modalities.

5Rhythms Movement as Meditation
Amber Ryan

Within each moment rests the seed of awakening. In each breath we have an opportunity to seek refuge within ourselves or to fully connect with another. The 5Rhythms® practice allows us a space to explore the primary levels of connection to oneself, one another, and the collective. Dance by dance we show up just as we are awakening to our truths, dancing ourselves inside-out to return to a simple and profound state of being. The 5Rhythms—flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical, and stillness—are a moving meditation practice created by Gabrielle Roth. They are designed to bring out each individual’s creative potential as well as being a catalyst for deep healing in the body, mind, and soul.

Yoga for Rejuvenation
Marianela Ortiz

In this rejuvenating week of hatha yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Gaia Yoga, and chanting, you transform old patterns stored in the body, recover your deepest inner wisdom, and rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit. Learn to activate Kundalini energy through asanas and other dynamic movements. Use yogic sounds and sacred chants to elevate and accelerate cellular vibration, all while stimulating physical, mental, and emotional detoxification and renewal.

The Path to Longevity
Create More Time for Life

Stephan Rechtschaffen, MD
Physician, author, and cofounder of Omega, Stephan Rechtschaffen, teaches integrative approaches to longevity, time, stress reduction, and well-being. Learn the fundamental basis to attain and maintain greater vitality and long life. Through inspiring lectures, guided visualizations, and meditation practices, the author of Timeshifting and coauthor of Vitality and Wellness, shows you how to lead a more balanced and integrative life while coming deeper into the present moment.

Cultivate Your Life Force
Find the Extraordinary in the Ordinary With Waterfall Qigong

Steven Michael Pague
"Qi" is life force and "gong" is cultivation. Through one of the most eloquent and powerful methods of exercise and moving meditation, we delve into the mysteries and practicality of qigong. We easily learn and practice movements that enhance balance, flexibility, vitality, creativity, and more, while strengthening immune function and resilience. We also play and transform ourselves with unique and quite enjoyable forms called “Animal Frolics.” Join in and kindle the fire of your inner smile, align yourself between Heaven and Earth, and find the extraordinary in the ordinary.
