It’s January 2009, and after 3 flights covering 5,000 miles, the first stop of my first visit to the Hawaiian islands has suddenly become the last place where I want to be. I’m washing my hands in a white ceramic sink under a broken fluorescent light; the…

The same key ingredients that apply to an amazing retreat a half-world away are accessible wherever you call home - just beyond your habits and comfort zones.

Give-first personalities, change-makers and dream-big idealists have so much love to give. They want to save everyone. First, they have to save themselves.

Romantic as it may be to paint life as an undying adventure, it runs the risk of detaching readers from the truth of the realities that we all live.

Creativity resides within. And the journey to cultivate creativity - creative energy, and the capacities to express it - is a just that, a journey within.

As you develop a relationship to your writing, you'll ask yourself if the medium by which you share your words matches, magnifies, and honors your message.

Lowest common denominator politics plays to the worst of our human nature, and an imaginary past of supposed glory will not save us. A co-created future can.

It's been a dream of mine to host destination retreats. Not because their fashionable or something, but because of how powerful experiences like these can be!

Combine an entirely new and foreign environment, plus amazing people, and invigorating daily practices = transformation.

I'm bringing this kind of experience to Costa Rica from April 30 to May 7, 2016 with my friend +Kate Marolt. Please feel invited to share with interested yogis, writers, and self-starters. All are welcome :) www.daveursillo.com/retreat
