Two of our greatest tools for healing are our Breath and the use of Sound. At this retreat you will learn to become your own Sound Healer! You will also learn various forms of Pranayama that will help you to adapt to the changes in life as well as experience greater levels of joy and peace!
This women’s retreat will include Women’s Circles, Gentle Yoga, Sound Healing, Mediation, Qi Gong, Forest Bathing, Journeydance and an Art Experience led by a guest professional artist, Casey Maura (“Miss Casey”). I’m excited that “Miss Casey” will be joining us on our retreat to share her amazing techniques and spiritual wisdom that reflects so beautifully in her art!
You will experience a transformation through all of our rejuvenating practices, Mindful Yoga, Meditation, Gatherings, along with free time for reflection, connection with nature, and more. Women may choose to participate in the activities they are interested in but I ask that we all gather for the Circles. All activities are included in the cost!
