Seasonal Self-Care Retreats
Fall is a time when all of nature starts to let go of the things that are no longer needed and prepare for a time of deep stillness and rest of winter. Things that are nonessential fall away. Resources are shored up and only the very essential make the cut for the coming season or rest. Then, once we have rested, it’s natural for energy to increase and new life to sprout. Spring follows Winter and Summer comes once again.
As humans, we too are subject to these cycles of energy and activity.
These seasonal retreats have been created with precisely this in mind.
They are set up for you to get some much needed self-care time. They are held in a space surrounded by nature so you can be immersed in the fullness of the season.
We create a nourishing and safe container where you will have all your needs taken care of. Delicious seasonal food, daily yoga and meditation, and other supports nourish and replenish your mind and body.
The retreat is also set up with some simple teachings based on the 5 elements wisdom of Eastern medicine. These are based on the natural and timeless cycles of nature. This is to help you embrace the true elements of the season. We include writing prompts and guidance to help you connect to your inner world, through the external flow of nature and tune into whatever is present for you, at this moment in time. To tend to your body, your Spirit and your Soul.
Each yoga class, guided meditation, essential oil and acupoint combination will focus on the corresponding seasonal element and meridians. The fall retreat will focus on the Metal Element: deep release, letting go, connecting to our inner voice and intuition, nourishing the lungs, strengthening the immune system, and connecting to the preciousness of the present moment.
Retreats are set up to have a mix of experiences. There is time spent as a group in respectful conversation but it is balanced with silence and ample free time to allow you to find your way home to yourself and take care of whatever it is you need to do to feel replenished. Read a book, walk the labyrinth or the local trails or just spend your time looking out the window and simply be-ing.
We create the space and do the work so you don’t have to.
Engage as much or as little as you like.
This is your time.
