Put simply, our approach has springs out of two transformative daily practices: iRest Yoga Nidra (a guided meditation practice of self inquiry) and expressive creative arts. These two shared experiences in safe space community ground, the retreat and foster enormous personal and collective spiritual growth.
In 10 years of leading women’s retreats we have learned quite a bit about how to create a dynamic, relaxed, inclusive, flexible structure for being together. About half the women who come to our retreats are brand new and the other half are coming back for more of what they received on other retreats with us. We find that within a day, a new group is formed that includes everyone.
We want you to give yourself permission to be as engaged in the classes and other offerings as works for you. We also know how important it is for everyone to be a part of the soul-nourishing community we create together. So there are a few activities each retreat in which we ask everyone to participate (in their own way).
Finally, there will be a few periods when the whole community will share the deepening power of being in silence surrounded by Mother Nature.
