Costa Rica Week 4 | Omega

Workshop

Costa Rica Week 4

Jan 27 - Feb 03 2018 Costa Rica
Omega Costa Rica offers extraordinary programs at Blue Spirit, January through March, 2018.

This week at Omega Costa Rica, you can learn to improve health and bring more joy into your life, gather the tools you need to become your best self, or tap into your unconscious to free the writer within. You can also practice rejuvenating qigong, celebrate the freedom of creative movement, reconnect with the love and intelligence of the heart, 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 and create your own experience.

Sample from any or all of the following workshops during Week 4.

The Nutrition for Life Plan
Nourish Your Body, Mind & Spirit

Joan Borysenko, PhD
Be prepared to relax, reflect, and nourish your whole being as you immerse yourself in mind-body medicine, psychology, and spiritual practices that inform and inspire your journey to joyous, radiant health. Discover dynamic tools to implement a unique Nutrition-for-Life Plan, including tips for cooking, mind-body meditations, journaling, everyday healing rituals, and a four-week strategy to jump start your new approach to joyful eating and “digesting” your life. Learn why leading-edge nutritional science and ancient holistic wisdom should inform your personal food choices, and experience the Zen of eating—how beliefs, mindfulness, pleasure, and gratitude are as physiologically important as the foods you eat.

Reach Your Highest Potential
The Tools to Overcome Whatever Holds You Back

Barry Michels
You have the potential to live a much fuller life, where you wake up every morning feeling enthusiastic about the day ahead and throw yourself into everything you do—not because you have to, but because you want to. But do you sense that there’s more to life or that you’re not living your life to the fullest? Find out what’s holding you back and learn simple, effective tools to boost your relationships, work, and creativity. Gather “The Tools” to become your best self.

Relax & Write
Tapping Your Unconscious for Life & Art
Maia Danziger
Are you a new or established writer struggling to tap into your creative well? The Relax & Write method shows you that the blank page is nothing to fear. Created by Maia Danziger, the Relax & Write method unlocks the unconscious to develop your passion for writing and living. In a safe and nonjudgmental setting, you practice deep relaxation, guided meditation, sensory awareness, and tapping into the "observer self." This process teaches you to awaken the inner voice you’ve always wanted to hear and to put that voice to paper.

The Healing Power of Qi
Qigong & Tai Chi Practices for Life
Roger Jahnke, OMD
Qigong is the ancient Chinese art of awakening and cultivating the vital energy of the universe within you. Anyone can learn to focus their connection to qi (chi), or vital energy, to manifest radiant health, experience the light of their eternal spiritual nature, and alchemically transform their life. Dynamic teacher Roger Jahnke—a doctor of Chinese medicine and author of The Healing Promise of Qi and The Healer Within—guides you through accessible principles of Chinese medicine and easy qigong practices you can remember and use for a lifetime.

Afro Flow Yoga
Leslie Salmon Jones
and Jeff W. Jones
Experience the creative, unique fusion of vinyasa and Kundalini inspired yoga with dance from the African Diaspora. Afro Flow Yoga cofounders Leslie Salmon Jones and Jeff W. Jones guide us on a transformational journey of heart-opening movement, deep stretches, singing, meditation, relaxation, and reflection—all interwoven with the dynamic rhythmic release of energizing and healing percussion with vocals. Together in a nonjudgmental environment, we celebrate the freedom of movement, connect to the elements of nature, and tap into the power of our collective, creative energy with live drumming! No experience necessary; all levels are welcome.

The Free Heart
Annette Knopp
We all long for a life full of meaning, fulfillment, love, and connection, yet we might be confused on how to truly actualize that intention in our day-to-day reality. Drawing from a rich well of experiential inquiries, guided meditation, and shamanic medicine tools, Annette Knopp invites us to remember the ever-present love and intelligence of the heart, and relax into what is already profoundly complete within. Come experience the Free Heart™ process.

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
Waterfall Qigong Style

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.
