greece yoga retreat

Every moment of our existence we experience this ebb and flow of: inward and outward movement, of expansion and contraction, of intimacy and alienation. However, we often feel stuck, when obstacles or distractions divert us from what really matters in life. We feel overwhelmed, consumed, overworked, and stressed out from the many commitments that quickly transform themselves into duties, burdens, and obligations. Not to mention, the deeper individual and societal traumas that we learn to bury deeply beneath the surface, leaving us with little energy to simply celebrate the successes of life, while letting go and mourning our sorrows.

So let’s stop, reflect, and re-create ourselves.

We invite you to take a deep dive into this six-day journey into self-care, emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and self-discovery with Mansa. Each session is designed to increase self-awareness, build personal resilience, celebrate life, mourn loss, and strengthen self-confidence. Mansa self-care retreats create the space for reflection, rejuvenation, meaningful conversation, meditation, and fun. We will spend each day contemplating how to connect with the divinity within ourselves. We will move our bodies, sing, dance, and drop below the surface into deep meditation.

Most importantly we will establish self-care practices that:

  • Boost energy.
  • Increase self-esteem, self-trust, and self-acceptance.
  • Enhance physical, mental, and spiritual health.

We will participate in empathy circles that:

  • Release negative thought patterns and beliefs.
  • Regulate emotions.
  • Strengthen interpersonal communication skills.

We will engage in guided meditations that:

  • Activate inner wisdom.
  • Decrease reactivity.
  • Deepen clarity, purpose, and sense of meaning.

Come enjoy the playfulness, the spaciousness, and the presence of the Greek Islands.

Greece Yoga Retreat

Morris H. Ervin Jr.

Morris is an educator, speaker, coach, and  youth development professional who has provided mentoring, personal development,  mindfulness, and interpersonal communication through Re-creation services, leadership seminars, and community workshops for the past twenty years.  As a Social Studies Teacher in the early 2000’s; Morris created and designed a new innovative African American History Course/Curriculum, challenged the public school system by implementing a unique style of teaching and learning in the classroom called Non-Violent Communication, and established a rigorous, relevant, and meaningful curriculum for an all male classroom in South Central Los Angeles dedicated to keeping young boys off the streets, out of gangs, and away from prisons. 

Founded in 2018, Ndani is a comprehensive integration of all the years of working with families, schools, neighborhoods, communities, universities, and institutions around Equity & Inclusion, Anti-Oppression, Race/Identity Development, Youth Development, Wellness, and Community Engagement.  Ndani is a 501c3 community school designed in Educational Theory and Practice, Critical Consciousness and Transformative Education.

The source of inspiration and success comes from Morris’s twenty five year marriage to Dr. Venaya Jones, and his unconditional love for his two young adult children Naimah and Idris.  Morris’s favorite quote is, “ I turn fear into strength and pain into passion. 

Testimonials:

“My name is Amy Ma, and I am a teacher at Renbrook School.  This past week, I attended your fantastic conference, “The Power of Empathy: Exploring Racial / Social Justice. I can’t express to you enough how meaningful and vital this experience was.  Although I speak for myself, I am assured of how stunning it was for many others (colleague and I were motor-mouthed the entire ride back to West Hartford!) In this pivotal moment in America, I know that personally, this came at a crucial moment, and the energy in the room was unique and electric.  Again, I am compelled to tell you how wonderful you were as a facilitator and all around. I’m sure you’ve been told many times, but your gift for bringing others together is remarkable. So many people want this discourse, and yet so many people freeze when it begins.  On Tuesday, there was a thaw in the room. In my nine years as an educator and race/literature-obsessed human, I’ve never felt so invigorated and open in this kind of conversation in this kind of setting.  I guess I’m either a cynical romantic or a hopeful cynic, so I can be skeptical, but this is the only professional conference I have *ever* left with definite plans to contact strangers I met that day to continue the conversation and connections.” 

“I experience joy in collaborating with Morris, and my needs for trust, mutuality and flow are met often in co-leading programs. Part of this has to do with his willingness to dive deeply into discussions and exercises (and often model participation by leading with his own vulnerability to help make it safe for others to do the same). These past few weeks, we have been co-leading a training and Morris joined in the same practices as all the participants, and was an active participant in all the discussions.” — Jesse Wiens-Chu, International Non-Violent Communication Trainer.

Many participants enjoy arriving in Athens a day early and staying a day later in order to have more ferry options and travel flexibility.
