1. How does the idea of “Power of Presence” play into your retreat? What themes do you see coming up throughout the journey?

The Power of Presence Retreat is focused on reconnecting with the mystery and wonder that we delighted in as children. We use a three-prong approach to dissolve the veil of seriousness to unite with the profound beauty and silence of each moment. We work with the body through yoga, the mind through meditation, and the heart through joyful play and connection.

2. Who has been your greatest influence and why?

Osho, Alan Watts, Adyashanti, and Isacc Shapiro have been our most influential teachers. We honor how each uniquely points to the mystery that knows no comparison.

3. If there was a yoga pose or mediation practice that described you – what would it be and why?Meet True Nature Instructors Susan Urquhart-Brown and Christopher Brown

Peaceful Warrior (Shanti Virbhadrasana). Why? Like the pose, I am flexible in mind and body, calm, strong, and graceful.

4. Other than yoga and meditation – what are some of your passions? Will these be explored in your retreat?

We love to travel, explore, and learn about the countries and cultures we visit.

5. What is on your “Peru bucket list” and what are you most excited about?

On our bucket list in Peru is communion with the mountains, connecting with the culture of the extraordinary Peruvian people, and learning about the ancient Incan culture.

6. Is there a saying or quote that really resonates with you and your upcoming retreat?

“You are what you think having become what you thought.” -Osho
