About the Event

The call… 

Oh, you heard it too... 

...that still, small voice asking you to pause.  The one telling you there is more. The one inviting you to take up space.   The one calling you to come back to yourself….your truest self.  Maybe she has been hiding, maybe she has been dimming her light, maybe she is just starting to heal, or has been on her journey for a while.   What is your relationship to stillness and rest?  How do you cultivate and tend to that practice?  If you are curious about a stillness practice,  or are seeking to deepen your practice of stillness and rest to expand into yourself fully,  or you are somewhere in between, this retreat is just for you.

The weekend... 

Exploring  practices like Restorative, Yin, Slow Flow Vinyasa,  guided meditation and Nidra. We will gather Friday between 4:30 and 5:15 to settle into our guest home with reflective space, restorative yoga and rest practice, closing  by breaking bread with each other.  Saturday we will rise with a gentle slow flow, breakfast that will gently transition into reflective time.  After lunch we'll ground through a guided meditation that awakens our creative potential with space to explore your artistic side with an optional art project.  Saturday will close with an early dinner, reflective space/ sister circle journal session.  Then settle in for the evening with a gentle  yin flow and Nidra session. Sunday we will practice a moving meditation with rounds of Surya Namaskar with breakfast and a closing sister circle.
