Weekend workshop w/Christine Mason ~ SLO, CA
October 26 @ 6:00 pm - October 28 @ 11:00 am
From Shadow to Light:
Live Free & Happy through Practice & Grace
Join Adam Bauer and Christine Marie Mason for a special 3-day immersive dive into the healing waters of authentic presence with self and community.
We believe in the potency of creating safe spaces for intimate and vulnerable exploring of our authentic selves, with all our complications, wounds, brilliance and possibility. In this dance, we become more awake and fully present to our power and choice as we create and enjoy our lives and work to build the world we want to live in.
We’ve found that living cleanly and freely doesn’t come automagically. It takes a touch of grace, a willingness to be uncomfortable sometimes, and a lot of practice. As we strip away layers of outdated patterns and beliefs, discomforts (such as shame or fear) may arise. When we say “practice,” we mean it: we slow down and work in pairs or triads, we stay present for feelings, listen for truth, track energy flow in ourselves and others. We practice speaking boldly and listening openly and authentically while staying connected. Much of this work we simply cannot do alone: in some domains, we can only evolve together. These skills may seem unsexy, but they are totally vital for unfolding a new way of being human.
We will weave interactive teachings and practices on presencing, listening and intimacy, while exploring the gifts available to all of us in each moment for living whole and happy in the face of life’s challenges. We like to laugh and sing while we learn and embody–and there’s a pretty good chance of some good clean crying, too.
- Morning meditation, yoga and breathwork.
- Daily mantra chanting.
- Fresh alive vegan food by the wonderful Iris Eisenlohr.

The retreat will be held in a private location just outside of San Luis Obispo, CA and includes lodging and all meals. All are welcome. No experience necessary. Especially beneficial for couples who are ready to go deeper together, so bring your +1.
If you’re into getting to what’s real, and diving into a deep process of inquiry together, please come and join us! We’ll have a bunch of fun and aim to move the needle, too.
