Description

This week at Omega Costa Rica, explore the connections between sexuality and blissful consciousness, unlock your erotic intelligence, or uncover the beauty of hidden wisdom. Learn to bring more purpose into your life, celebrate the freedom of creative movement, or find ways to become more resilient. You can also practice rejuvenating yoga or qigong or discover the principles of longevity.

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. Head to the beach, dive into optional activities, exciting excursions, and evening events—and enjoy all that Blue Spirit has to offer.

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

Love, Sex & Awakening
Margot Anand
How can we expand the range of experiences in our love life? How can we relate and connect meditation to love making? Based on Margot Anand's latest book, this workshop helps us explore the adventures and experiences of our lives that have been the most meaningful for us. We share, meditate, dance, explore tantric practices, and discover the connections between sexuality and blissful states of consciousness. She will bring advanced pre-publication copies of her new book for participants.

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 Beautiful Mysterium
Neil Kramer
Join British Philosopher Neil Kramer as you dive into the magic and mystery of Western esotericism and take an inner spiritual adventure. Uncover the beauty and divinity of the hidden wisdom firsthand and explore pathways of graceful illumination.

Vital Signs
Discovering & Sustaining Your Passion for Life
Gregg Levoy
What inspires or inhibits passion in your life? What saps it? How do you lose passion and how do you get it back? Learn to cultivate not just a specific passion, but ways to cultivate passion as a mindset or stance that helps bring vitality into everything you do—from work to relationships to creative pursuits—so you can live a truly inspired spiritual life.

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.

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.

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
Delve into the mysteries of qigong through a blend of easy-to-learn, yet profound movements designed to increase vitality, strengthen immune function, enhance creativity, and achieve harmony and balance, and much more. Join in and kindle the fire of your inner smile, align yourself between heaven and earth and find the extraordinary in the ordinary. While enjoying practices of movement and stillness, we also learn about the history, philosophy, and healing principals of qigong. As streams gather to form a river or waterfall, Waterfall Qigong is a joining of several lineages and teaching styles. Garner and take home what you will need to develop, or add to, a practice of your own.
