Jemez Springs, New Mexico (near Santa Fe)

Santa Fe, New Mexico's Capitol city, artists, adobe and a rich influence of Spanish culture. We will be staying at the beautiful and serene Bodhi Manda Zen Center near the town of Jemez Springs. This retreat will focus on the Bodhi’s central philosophy of the cycle of giving and receiving.

‘Bodhi Manda’ is Sanskrit for “Place of Enlightenment." The sole purpose of the Bodhi Manda Zen Center (“The Bodhi”) is to promote universal well being, helping people to experience their true selfless and symbiotic nature through providing genuine teachings and training in Rinzai Zen Buddhist practices for the immense benefit of current and future generations.

As a group, we will immerse ourself in the Bodhi mission, cleaning up after meals, giving back to the center through small projects during our stay, and enjoying the opportunities to meditate, soak in the Hot Springs and walk the gardens and grounds.

The trinity of creativity, spirituality and sexuality have long been written about, researched and sought after.  The Santa Fe area provides a perfect backdrop for women to explore all three.  It is an area of the world that has beckoned artists to create, shamans and ancient wisdom to explore spirituality and Back to the Body, to now open the vortex of sexuality.
