A Day to Retreat — Saturday August 15th 10am-5pm

By July 20, 2015October 28th, 2020No Comments

An invitation to take time out for you. To retreat is essential to our well being. Often it’s not until we carve out this space, that we realize how much we needed it. This is an opp0rtunity to move out of daily life. To slow down and listen more deeply to yourself.  To nourish yourself with, yoga, meditation, food and nature.  Learn  practices which can  become self care tools you bring into your daily life, to assist you in living in sync with your deeper authentic nature.  When we retreat, even for a short time, it enables us to gain new perspectives, unleash creativity and come back to life with more clarity.

“Quiet your mind and you will hear whispers of Love emanating from your own soul”
