mEDITATION | #bPRSNT

BREATH. STILLNESS. OBSERVATION. 

Creating a space to go within, slow down, follow the breath, focus on mantras, set intentions, observe self, practice stillness so we can tap in and channel that when needed.  The power of tuning into our subtle body awareness and learning how to allow thoughts to pass is transformation, both for life and sports performance.

MANIFESTATION | GOAL SETTING

SET INTENTIONS. DREAM. DESIGN. CREATE.

Without a destination, how do we expect to get there. 30% of what we write down, we attract & create. Without setting intentions, getting clear about our goals, how are we suppose to manifest them into fruition? Lets do this together.

GLAMPING

GLAMOROUS CAMPING. SIMPLE LIVING. NATURE.

We find no better way to hear ourselves then when totally immersed in nature.  Quality food, comforts of hammock living and the ease of cooking can be accomplished through modern day comforts and products.  Leaving us more time to connect with ourselves and nature.

DANCING WITH FEAR

OBSERVE. INTERPRET. DANCE. STAY LIGHT.

DIGITAL DISCONNECT

NO PHONE. NO WIFI.  100% HUMAN.

Now days we rely on technology to map our path, book our next move, connect to our neighbors- even when they live next door!  We create an environment that channels the power of the PRSNT moment to cultivate creativity and a connection to the self.  PRSNTness is a practice and a vacation from our habits where technology is a must to get there.

It is so important to surround yourself around people that inspire you.

ADVENTURE | SURFING

OBSERVE. LISTEN. FLOW. RIDE.

Surfing is a magical moving meditation, where we get to slow down, listening deeply to the signals, rhythms and wisdom of the ocean; so we can reap the benefits of riding the waves. What a treat that is!

PERMACULTURE

Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless labor; and of looking at plants and animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single product system. -Bill Mollison

#PRSNTplay

GET WEIRD. GET CREATIVE. CHILD INSPIRED. 

Adults tend to make excuses for why we don't have time to play, just for the sake of playing. We really look to children for inspiration because they are naturally drawn towards being in a playful state of mind. They tend to always play, wherever they are; in bathroom lines, in the 10 min break at recess or when they are brushing their teeth. 

When children play it is not pre-set, they don't know what's going to happen in the story they are creating, so they tend to become totally immersed in the present moment. This state of being requires skill sets like trust, creativity, flow and spontaneity, something children seem to practice more than adults.  

Joining this camp is the best investment I´ve done in a long time. An investment in myself and our future. This has been a turning point for me, where I really have learned to #BPRSNT, and realize what truly matters. Kjersti and Chanelle has giving me lots of new energy to continue this amazing life I have ahead of me!

“WE STARTED PRSNT BECAUSE WE BELIEVE GETTING THE JUICE OUT OF LIFE REQUIRES YOU TO OPERATE AT YOUR HIGHEST SELF. GETTING THERE IS A BALANCE BETWEEN THE PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND SPIRITUAL PURSUIT. ALL TOP PERFORMING HUMANS REACH THEIR HIGHEST LEVEL BY FINDING THE PRSNT MOMENT. THAT IS WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS, WHEN YOU ARE WHERE YOUR FEET ARE.”

THE ULTIMATE WOMEN'S ADVENTURE RETREAT EXPERIENCE

 
The benefits of attending the #PRSNT camp extend well beyond the weekend activities. Being immersed in the positive energy that Chanelle and Kjersti create is truly amazing. I went for the snowboarding (which was RAD), but left with a new sense of connectedness- to myself, to the other women who attended, and to the world. The experience is one that will stay with me for life.

Today was an awesome day with yoga, snowboarding, great food and great snowboarders. We learned how to ACTUALLY feel our bodies, and the best thing was that we got to be 100% ourselves - weird - in a good way!
