Retreat Description and Program
This weekend retreat is all about removing yourself from your day-to-day life and struggles to take the time to rebalance, refocus on yourself and to revitalize your life like a much needed "breath of fresh air" or "shot of life back in your life." We understand how easy it is for people to become caught up in trying to survive and fulfill so many obligations in their lives, but over time this wears down the mind, body and spirit causing a variety of problems such as feeling constantly tired, sad, lack of motivation, stuck or "trapped," anxious and unable to relax, irritable, sleep problems, health issues and the list goes on and on. On the surface, many people have everything they thought they wanted from life (ie, job, house, car, marriage or relationship, kids, etc.) but in fact, are still feeling a deep sense of dissatisfaction and emptiness-- uninspired and completely disconnected from who they really are.
That's where it becomes crucial to disconnect from the routines we are used to and to begin a process of reconnection with what we need. To stop the business and robotic manner in which we live, and to take the time to look at how our lives are serving our underlying needs, dreams and desires. Ultimately, finding a way to incorporate real and profound changes into your life so that you can live an authentic, inspired, balanced and joyful life.
To do this, we have created a unique and comprehensive retreat program that is intimate and personal (up to 10 people maximum) that addresses your mind, body and spirit through a variety of healing approaches, practices and exercises. We have created an environment and weekend specifically focused on nurturing, revitalizing and supporting you in beginning to rediscover who you are and what you need. Through our group activities and one-on-one healing session, you will receive physical and emotional healing and support to move you forward in your life.
Having gone through our own process of healing, evolution and self-discovery as well as difficult life challenges, we truly understand the need for support and a "time-out" to refocus on ourselves. If you've been considering going to a retreat or much needed break from your life, we encourage you to take advantage of our unique retreats of healing that include everything you need to begin your own process of healing and rejuvination. We hope you take this opportunity and encourage you not to wait any longer to get back back to your self.
