The Art of Ritual


FP ESCAPES presents THE ART OF RITUAL

with

MISCHA VARMUZA & MAGGIE HARSSEN   

I am excited to be back in Andalucia this Autumn for a magical and unique collaboration between Free People and Yogascapes. I will be leading daily immersive and soulful yoga along side my fellow guide, Maggie Harssen, who will bring her Shamanic wisdom to the retreat, leading us through ritual and ceremony.

The fertile lands of Andalucia remain suspended between the sea and stars and serve as the ideal host for our Spain yoga retreat. In this magical setting we will weave daily ritual into our lives, learning about time-honored local customs and world-wide traditions. Studies have shown that performing a ritual can increase enjoyment and perceived value. On this yoga retreat, we will study the art of ritual as a way to infuse our daily lives with meaning, using Spain’s rich history in the subject as a guide. We will explore the practice of morning routines, visit an Arabic Hammam to learn about self-care rituals, and discover local folklore.
