Life deals us all kinds of unexpected challenges (and opportunities).  It seems like each time life throw us a curve ball, we have to learn to re-calibrate and learn to find balance again, given the new realities with regard to health, relationships, work, identity and such.

This retreat will offer you tools and perspectives to use your resources to help you feel balanced in this current chapter of life, and will help you draw upon your courage to face new and uncharted territory.

During our time together you will be able to participate in any or all of the following sessions:

  • Chakra Meditation

  • Devotional Chanting

  • Movement Practices (gentle yoga, dance, restorative/yin yoga)

  • Body scan and journaling
