JOURNEY INTO EMBODIED PRESENCE, LOVE AND GRATITUDE
A Fall Retreat At Be Love Farm
Nov. 5, 3:00 PM – Nov. 7, 11:00 am
PRESENCE. LOVE. GRATITUDE.
Within contemplative quietude, supported by calm and insight meditation in a mindful, gentle retreat container, we will draw from teachings and practices that enable timelessness and openings into the heart medicine of love and compassion. During our time together, we will practice gentle somatic movements to unwind tension in the body and free the breath rhythm. With well-supported yoga poses, and body-centered meditation, our movement practices will awaken sensations and attune us to the body’s innate wisdom. I will offer techniques to ground the nervous system and create a container of safety and support to allow us to meet all that may arise. The yoga practices will be both dynamic and nourishing for ease and resilience.
Be Love Farm, our home away from home! With doors and hearts wide open, you instantly feel welcomed. The abundance of nature, home cooked meals (sourced from the farm) and a supportive community will aid in the healing and restorative retreat experience. All are welcomed.

WHY BE LOVE?
“At Be Love, we are developing a model of a diverse food production system, believing variety to be more resilient to world and climate unrest, and more fun. We produce dozens of different foods from Asparagus to Zinfandel.
We consider soil restoration the highest prerogative for humanity. Not only to mitigate climate change but to restore health to people and communities throughout the world.
We have spent many years creating a farm house where others can come and enjoy being close to nature, awakening to the sounds of a farm rather than an alarm, eating food from the land and connecting with us, the farmers."

All Meals (Organic, Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten Free Options w/most ingredients directly from the farm)

Be Love's queen farmhouse rooms are cozy and comfortable.

The views from the windows allow you to enjoy the beauty of the farm. There are 3.5 bathrooms that are shared in the farmhouse.

Be Love's queen rooms give you a birds eye view of the farm. They are cozy and comfortable and also have private bathrooms, and air conditioning for the warmer summer months. There is a shared coffee bar area as well as a living room to enjoy.
FARM ROOM KING
Be Love's King room is large and welcoming with plenty of windows and views of the farm. There are 3.5 bathrooms in the farmhouse that are shared. The King room is a corner room and next to one of the half baths on their courtyard.
A beautiful canvas tent under an awning built with cypress trees on a hardwood platform with covered porch under a lit live oak tree. One queen bed and floor cushions for 2 children if needed.
Be Love's tiny house set in nature and has two queen beds (one is a loft bed). It is beautifully crafted and cozy. An outdoor fire pit welcomes you to star watch in the evenings before snuggling in for the night. Guests are invited to enjoy the outdoor bath house and sauna.
"When you find someone who loves what they do, and you're granted the opportunity to participate and engage in their craft, that alone is such a gift. And that is precisely what I've had the privilege and honor to experience with Sarah's guidance. I'm not a regular yogi, but my soul and body are very attuned to the healing arts. Sarah's retreats, and I have since attended two this summer, are the embodiment of self care, self reflection and all the healing vibes your mind and body can imagine. If healing indulgence and necessary recharge are ever on your agenda, do yourself the biggest favor and attend a retreat, a class, or all of the above. Your inner and outer self will immensely thank you."

WHAT KIND OF YOGA WILL WE BE PRACTICING?
Sarah's teachings pull from a wide tapestry of yoga and healing modalities that she's studied over the past 18 years: Hatha, Restorative, Yin and Satya Yoga, Holistic Massage Therapy, subtle body energy work, and self-inquiry practices. Sarah gracefully and methodically weaves these teachings together with deliberate attention to alignment and breath, guiding you towards a more conscious connection to your body, heart and spirit.

Nourishment from the soil, for the soul
EXPERIECNE THE EARTH'S BOUNTY
Be Love is developing a model of a diverse food production system, believing variety to be more resilient to world and climate unrest and more fun. We produce dozens of different foods from Asparagus to Zinfandel. Thus they are jacks of many trades and masters of none. While some of their fruits and veggies end up at their restaurant, Gracias Madre, in the Mission District of San Francisco, their ultimate goal is to have friends come visit, stay a while and experience the earth’s bounty immersed in the beauty and community of Be Love Farm.

YOUR RETREAT HOST
Meet Sarah Pascual & Guest Healers
In practicing and teaching yoga, Sarah was introduced to the value of slowing down and creating space to notice thoughts and sensations in a mindful way. This yin style of yoga allowed her to really go deep into relaxation in a way that she had never experienced before. In that depth of rest she has found so much healing on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level. During your time on retreat you will get a good dose of this "depth of rest" she speaks about.
Sarah has been teaching yoga and mindfulness for 15 years in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her love and passion for travel and group facilitating has kept her retreat business in full bloom for 10 years. Sarah's warm and welcoming energy allows you to show up exactly how you are. She believes through a daily connection practice one can create flow, authenticity and grace on and off the mat, inevitably pouring out into all aspects of life. Sarah can't wait to be on the farm with you!
Intuitive massage therapist
Natalie enjoys drawing from various modalities she has learned from hands-on mentor experience over the last 9 years and her own intuition about what each energetic work a person needs. Her intention is to create an individualized experience that will help each client to feel his or her best. With her fluid motion and comforting style she aims to help her clients heal both physically and emotionally with a well balanced relaxation massage with a variety of techniques including engaged flowing strokes, deep stretches, facial massage and tension release points. She also seeks to create a full sensory experience by bringing in essential oils and uses her own homemade body oils during the massage which is made with organic Jojoba, almond and coconut oil, homegrown lavender, chamomile, and calendula flowers to enhance the skin's healing process.
Lindsey is a yoga teacher (and practitioner), holistic chef and sound healer. Her journey into self-discovery, self-healing and motherhood has allowed her to fully step into her highest calling as a sound practitioner and healer. She incorporates sound healing into her yoga classes and offers special workshops regularly.
She completed her Music, Voice and Sound Healing certification under the instruction of Silvia Nakkach, as well as various other professional musicians, artists and sound practitioners at the California Institute of Integrative Studies in San Francisco in 2016.
