About the Event
Are you craving reconnection?
Do you yearn to connect with community, your deeper self, vitality, joy, or calm? Maybe your answer is all of these.
When life throws us the tough stuff, like climate change, pandemics, personal loss, physical challenges and worry, the toll it takes on our nervous system, body and mind is real.
Just as real is our essence, which is grounded, clear, trusting and peaceful. Recognition of our essential nature is like an outrigger that stablizes a boat. It helps us navigate the waves with confidence, keeps us from 'going under' in otherwise overwhelming conditions, and allows us to open to the flow of life with more trust, ease and joy.
The tough stuff of life doesn't have to go away in order to feel at ease. With recognition of our true heart we can relate to the most difficult circumstances and in a way that supports health and well-being on all levels. And, we can more easily open to natural joy.
This retreat is dedicated to reconnection to your essential well-being, through:
