Nearly Mindful

Spring Reboot!

April 25-27 2019

Lose the stress, and Rekindle the joy within you!

The setting is among the beautiful red rocks of Sedona, one of America’s great spiritual centers.
The goal? To rekindle that spark of joy, deep inside our hearts. We know it's there but we've forgotten how to bring it forward.

We'll spend this time together bringing mindful attention to our own self-care, reduce stress, build inner confidence, cultivate kindness and compassion for yourself and others and come home feeling refreshed and ready to apply what you've learned to daily life. 

You don't need to have experience with meditation or mindfulness, but if you are, you'll learn new tools to add to your practice!

Rahelio Rodriguez

rahelio rodriguez

Rahelio’s approach combines wisdom teachings from eastern Yogic traditions, Taoist wisdom, Christian mysticism, and Native American shamanism.  He was especially drawn to the teachings of Toltec wisdom that has come out of Mexico, and to the practice of Kriya yoga through Babaji’s lineage.  Since I was already very deep into the practice of western astrology, I was able to merge this perspective into the teachings of the Medicine Wheel as taught to him by Sun Bear. 

He conducts Native American style weddings, Sweat Lodges and blessing ceremonies, as well as sharing shamanic teachings and energetic practices including Medicine Wheel empowerments with the sacred drum, flute, songs, and chants. 

For this retreat Rahelio will be taking us to a medicine wheel he created on the grounds of the Amithaba Stupa and Peace Park where he will share with us about the sacred land of Sedona, guide us in walking the medicine wheel and perform a drum blessing.  Learn more about Rahelio on his website
