Seduction of Spirit | Meditation & Yoga Retreat

July 3–9, 2011 | The Fairmont Chateau, Whistler, BC, Canada

“The most direct and consistent way that I know to bring peace into every aspect of your life is through the regular practice of meditation.” ~ David Simon

Join Deepak Chopra, davidji, and the Chopra Center staff for a life-changing journey of meditation, celebration, and inner transformation this July at Seduction of Spirit.

The Chopra Center is coming to Whistler, British Columbia, with Seduction of Spirit. This is the last Chopra Center event that will be offered in Canada until 2013. Located at the base of the Blackcomb Mountain, Whistler is a magnificent alpine village nestled among 1,000-year-old rain forests, white water glacial streams, and the spectacular Coast Mountains.

Immerse Yourself in the Whistler Meditation Retreat

We have chosen the Fairmont Chateau Resort, a beautifully designed luxury hotel that flows in perfect harmony with Whistler’s natural setting. Each day at Seduction of Spirit you will experience deeper and deeper levels of awareness as you meditate in the peace and stillness of the ancient mountains and forests, connect to the primordial energy of the earth and your own heart in Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga sessions, and breathe in the fresh oxygenated air of this eco-conscious community.

Designed for pedestrians, Whistler is easy to explore on foot. The Fairmont Chateau is just steps away from a treasure-trove of art galleries, elegant restaurants shops – and just a short walk to the area’s abundant hiking trails, lakes, and other outdoor activities. The Fairmont boasts spacious accommodations, incredible mountain vistas, and an award-winning golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones. The resort is easily accessible via car – about 75 miles (120 km) north of Vancouver International Airport.

Beth also released Hymns, a collection of ancient Latin hymns; and If Love Could Say God’s Name, a DVD recorded at St. Paul's Cathedral in London with the London Oriana Choir. Beth’s music has also been featured on the TV shows ER, Dawson's Creek, Providence, and Felicity – and in movie soundtracks, including The Prince of Egypt,“Message in a Bottle, The Rookie, Where the Heart Is, and Practical Magic.
