Rancho La Puerta’s enriching, memorable SPIRIT WEEKS (three per year) are an expansion of the Ranch’s Inner Journey Program, started over 25 years ago.
While they are progressive, each day will be valuable as an experience in itself and can be taken solo; come to any or all of the sessions. It is most valuable if all six sessions are taken as they allow one to go deeper into their own spiritual practices and to create a group ethos and a shared sense of evolution ato 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. Author of the books, Being Well and Here for Now.
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 on safari in Tanzania.
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.
