8 Days Body-Spirit Mime and Ashtanga Yoga Retreat

8 Days Body-Spirit Mime and Ashtanga Yoga Retreat

The Universal Art & Yoga Retreat

The art of theater is a body on stage, able to communicate universal emotions.

In this magic retreat which brings together 2 masters, Baptiste MARCEAU and Elena SERRA, the union of YOGA AND MIMO will deepen the knowledge of the body and the spirit.

Everyone will be able, in a playful way, after the Yoga practice, to find the "GAME" of the child inside each of us, experiencing the techniques of breathing, metamorphosis, and incarnation, with the world around us. So turning into Fire, air, earth, water, animal or human, will become the journey of knowledge and introspection almost as if mime means rebirth more free, more aware thanks to a sort of "human theatrical game", in communion with the surrounding way.

As Shakespeare used to say "THE WORLD AND AN IMMENSE THEATER", in this event it will not be necessary to imagine actors or mimes, but simply human beings capable of translating UNIVERSAL EMOTIONS.

We will explore the techniques of the study of the hands, of the walks, of the metamorphoses, of the ages of life, of the tragicomic, of the symbolic and of the sacred. Through a series of physical exercises where the body will translate everything, where the identification with the matter evening thorough thanks to breathing.

Agricola Samadhi is much more than a farm, it is a journey in the journey, an existential, multi-sensorial, energizing and relaxing experience. It is at the same time a proposal and practice of a lifestyle in which the priority is re-finding itself, doing good, sharing with others, experimenting with the practices of yoga and other techniques the lost connection between the body, the mind, and the Heart.

What is proposed and experimented at Agricola Samadhi is the energetic recharge and psychophysical wellbeing, through a path of knowledge, the rediscovery of the body and its potential and through a diet that purifies, lightens and strengthens.

Energy recharge and psychophysical wellness will be the most precious gifts that you will bring back home with your suitcases and new friendships that always arise during the stays.

WHOLY DAYS, WHOLY LIFE.

Our invitation to come join us is TURN YOUR HOLIDAYS INTO WHOLIDAYS. Quoting BKS Iyengar: “The word ‘holistic’ is very fashionable nowadays, and one often hears people speak of ‘holistic’ medicine. The word ‘holistic’ contains the word ‘whole’, which is the true meaning of ‘healthy’. When there is ‘wholeness’ of body, mind, and self, this wholeness becomes holy.

Holy means ‘divine’ and without divinity, you cannot truly speak of holistic practice or of holistic medicine. When a person connects the soul to the skin and the skin to the soul, when there is a tremendous communion between the cells of the body and the cells of the soul, then that is holistic or integrated practice, because the whole of the human system has been integrated into a single unit in which body, mind, intelligence, consciousness, and soul come together.

Though tremendous advances have been made by science, medicine, and psychology over many centuries, no one can define a frontier between body and mind or between mind and soul. They cannot be separated. They are intermingled, interconnected, united. Where there is mind, there is a body, where there is a body there is soul; where there is a soul there is mind.

Yet our everyday experience is of a great separation between these three. When we are engaged in mental activity, we are no longer aware of the body. When we are involved with the body, we lose sight of the soul.”Yoga is a way to move towards integration. With us, you will experience it.

Food

Good” is a ROUND word. When a child says, “it’s GOOD,” he tells of a world untouched, pure, essential.
You’re good,” means: “I can trust, I feel safe.” This is true for humans, but also for nourishment.

A child is a master of the essential innate ideas.

Adults need to relearn to feel, to savor the taste of food connected to the taste of life.

You are Here, and on this table, you receive the privilege of that ‘good’ that has the taste of childhood.
Close your eyes for a moment, while you perceive the food that from your mouth diffuses energy and pleasure in every part of you.

Organic, for what we produce, it is the truth, not a definition of fashion: we cultivate without using herbicides or pesticides with an arduous daily work between the rows.

Grow for us means supporting and not interrupting the cycle of life.

This food walks only a few steps to get from the garden to our kitchen. Yes, this food is Good, because it made with love because it is good for your health and at the same time does not harm anyone; to get on your plate it does not exploit other creatures, did not generate suffering and does not bring pain residues, but joy.

It is a harmonious food, whole, in harmony with creation, with Mother Earth.

This food is the present but also the future toward which to aim. The deep aspiration is that the philosophy of mindful eating, respecting all living beings will always expand more, generating virtuous circles.

Listen to this food, it talks emitting happy vibrations. We do not choose the easy way out, we like the commitment. We want a full life that tastes Good”.
