Role-Modeling Imagery:

The Fast Track to Self-Transformation

Sustainable Happiness daylong retreat with Geri Loizzo and Mary Reilly Nichols

The class retreat, taught by Geri Loizzo and Mary Reilly-Nichols, explores the transformational practice of role-modeling heroic altruism in the Tibetan Buddhist and Kashmiri Shaivite traditions. Known for their healing arts of imagery and recitation, these potent methods rely on an intimate mentoring bond, accelerating the alchemical process of relearning that we as human mammals are keenly designed for. Unpacking the developmental internalization and self-creation that both traditions assume, the instructors explore the ancient practices of imagery and affirmation based on the Healing Mother (Arya-Tara) and the Bliss Hero (Shiva). Meditation and Yoga are woven throughout the retreat.

An associated course precedes this retreat which may be taken separately. Course details may be found here.
