Your Body is your Temple. How do we live and eat in a way that honors the sacredness of our bodies and all of life? How do we nourish ourselves in the Eight sacred realms/bodies so we can live our life to our fullest potential and do what we came here to do? 

This weekend workshop addresses just that, as we journey and learn fundamental mindful living and self-compassion tools to skillfully navigate our lives. This contemplative and deep dive weekend will include exploration through inquiry, nature, awareness, inspired movement, expressive arts, live sound healing with exquisite harp and voice, nourishing mindfulness, mindful eating practices and more.

Come nurture your relationship to food, your body and your life and leave feeling refreshed renewed and inspired, ready to commit to your well nourished life with a plan, new insight and skills to do so.

Christine Tulis is a harpist, singer, mystic, healing artist and award-winning composer exploring the spiritual qualities of the harp and the ability of music and the healing arts to connect us to our hearts and inspired states of being. 

She began playing the harp over 25 years ago as a result of a life changing spiritual experience she had upon hearing the Celtic harp live for the first time. She loves to create musical experiences that help people connect with their Divine, inner selves - to make it easy to drop into the deep pool of stillness at their center. Her mission is to amplify and expand the energies of love, peace and beauty.

Christine has played internationally including two United Nations events, Labyrinth pilgrimages at Chartres Cathedral in France and Grace Cathedral in San Francisco as well as many healing centers, churches and other sacred spaces all over the United States. 

She is the founder of Sound Temple Healing Arts in San Rafael, California, where she offers sound and energy healing, bodywork, and practices the ancient art of anointing with holy oils. Her CD's, co-created with her partner in life and music Kem Stone, are enjoyed widely by those seeking a deeper connection to their hearts and healing energy.

Mount Madonna is a yogic learning community in an inspiring, beautiful setting in the Santa Cruz mountains. Located on 355 acres of redwoods and grasslands, this peaceful haven is a place where you can step back, slow down, and reconnect to your center, to nature, and to a more authentic flow of life.
During your retreat you are able to enjoy daily yoga classes, fresh and delicious vegetarian meals, a soak in the hot tub, or a walk along our peaceful forest trails.

Pursue your growth in a beautiful, rustic environment designed to distill and deepen personal and spiritual development. The Center has always been a sacred space, from the early Native American Ohlone days to the Italian stone masons who saw the apparition of the Madonna in the forest.

It's a place of natural magic and power and a place of personal transformation where people can slow down, recharge, and reconnect with their more spacious, authentic selves. The property is also home to the Sankaṭ Mochan Hanumān Temple a space for devotion, contemplation, and gathering. Ārati, a ceremony or offering of light is performed twice daily.
