Lujan Matus is offering a group workshop in the Golden Lotus Series from October 22nd-29th, 2016. Spaces will be limited for this residential retreat that will take place on the beautiful island of Koh Samui, Thailand.
Spiral Energetics/Lo Ban Pai – The Golden Lotus Series
The Golden Lotus Series is a powerful energy cultivation practice that promotes optimal health and longevity.
The movements consist of wide sweeping circles that resemble the shape of a butterfly and trace lines all around the body to create a matrix in the energy field. This builds a functional bridge to universal energy that allows you to nourish your personal reserves.
These techniques significantly increase energy generation and flow and open up the toroidal field of the heart. This enlivens the three main central channels, clearing any obstruction in the meridians of the body.
It is equivalent to medical chi gong equaling some of the most powerful practices found in China that works to balance and remove obstructions by strengthening and nurturing simultaneously. A healthy system is a tool for transformation of the individual on all levels.
Plasmic shocks in the core of the body often occur as energy makes itself available to the awareness of the practitioner. This is an essential experience so one can learn to store energy – or universal chi.
The Golden Lotus is also used for promoting very deep and profound states of lucid dreaming. Unlike normal dreaming states, the Golden Lotus opens a visionary portal that inhibits the dreamer from falling into imprinted socialized dreaming sequences.
The practitioner nourishes and strengthens their energy matrix by practicing the series every day. Once a month the set is performed in front of the full moon to connect with the special healing quality of lunar energy.
The Retreat Location
Koh Samui is one of Thailand’s largest islands and is an oasis of natural beauty with its white sandy beaches, dazzling coral, luscious lagoons, picturesque waterfalls, swaying coconut trees and crystal clear water. Samui is well known for its coconuts, which are available everywhere and quite delicious.
Arrival and Visas
Koh Samui has an international airport (airport code USM) with direct flights from many major cities.
30-day Visa-on-Arrival and Visa-Free entries are available at Samui Airport for many nationalities including Australia, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Belgium, Spain, New Zealand and many others. Check with the Thai embassy to confirm the details for your country.
A unique feature of the international departure gate is a courtesy corner which provides food and drinks for all passengers in a cozy outdoor sitting area.
The major reason why people come to Samui is to enjoy the beaches. The retreat venue is located right on the beach making this an ideal setting for long walks and relaxation.
The south of Thailand has some of the most beautiful beaches and islands in the world, which are surrounded by crystal clear water and stunning coral. It is possible to dive on Koh Samui virtually all year round. As Thailand is considered one of the safest destinations for diving and snorkelling in the world, it is perfect for first-timers.
The Retreat Center
The workshop will take place at Samadhita Retreat, which has been voted one of Asia’s top ten wellness resorts by CNN travel. It is in a quiet area off the beaten track, with plenty of privacy and comforts, yet still close to markets and amenities. The beach is virtually private and many rooms have a direct sea view, while the surroundings are lush and green.
Many of Koh Samui’s special attractions are nearby including waterfalls and temples and more. A walk down the beach brings you to the golden Laem Sor Pagoda of a realized Buddhist monk.
The retreat facilities include a meditation garden, a wellness center (Spa) and treatment rooms, an herbal steam room, a saltwater swimming pool, a lounge, a restaurant that serves delicious vegetarian cuisine, a full juice bar, and a boutique.
There is a strong commitment to keep eco-friendly standards using 100% natural non-bleach cotton sheets and towels, solar-powered hot water, mosquito screens for cross ventilation and energy-saving technology and designs.
The Daily Schedule
Students arrive on the evening of October 22nd to check in and become orientated. For six days from October 23rd-28th there will be two training sessions daily; one in the morning and another in the afternoon. Check out time is 12pm on October 29th.
The workshop fee includes accommodation, three full buffet meals daily and full use of the retreat facilities.
Students have the option to include detox and wellness treatments such as Thai massage and colon hydrotherapy at an additional cost.
The retreat food philosophy is based on the principle of “Sattva”, a Sanskrit term that means pure and light with a basis of easy to digest. The majority of meals are vegetarian but fish and seafood is offered once a day. For those who want to experience real Thai cuisine, there are many traditional dishes that will satisfy your taste.
For those that want to eat light and natural, there will be a raw food offering for all meals. The retreat also has a full-service juice bar serving up all types of juices, including home-grown organic wheatgrass, in addition to a variety of blended shakes and healthy snacks.
The rooms are set back from the main retreat, perfect for quiet contemplation and relaxation. There are rooms for couples and singles, as well as loft-style accommodations that are ideal for two people sharing.
