Rancho La Puerta's enriching, memorable SPIRIT WEEKS (three per year) are an expansion of the Ranch’s 22 year Inner Journey Program.
While they are progressive, each day will be valuable as an experience in itself and stand alone from the others. So feel free to come to any or all of the sessions. However it would be most valuable if you consider the three two-hour sessions Tuesday through Thursday as a commitment to allow us to go deeper into spiritual practices and to create a group ethos and a shared sense of evolution to create your own authentic “Inner Journey”.
All Spirit weeks are coordinated by Ranch yoga instructor Phyllis Pilgrim and this week’s is shared in collaboration with long term meditator and teacher Elana Rosenbaum. All classes are dedicated to inspiring your mind, body and spirit toward a greater understanding and practice of spiritual disciplines and learning how to weave them into your daily life.
Phyllis Pilgrim has been inspired by the teachings of BKS Iyengar, H.H. the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hahn, and Shinzen Young, among others. She explores the nether regions of the world, with a spiritual component to each adventure. Recent journeys include hiking the Inca Trail, visiting Dharamsala to listen to the teachings of the Dalai Lama, and trekking in Tibet, Bhutan and Tasmania.
Phyllis is the author of "The Hidden Passport", nominated as a finalist in the 2009 San Diego Book Awards. It tells of her young life in Japanese concentrations camps in Java in WW2. She reveals much about her life and philosophy enhanced by her practices in yoga and meditation. www.phyllispilgrim.com
