About the event
Welcome to the world of allowing, where life is peaceful, effortless, and exciting.
If you are a person who tends to...
- hold on to painful experiences of the past
- anxiously worry about the future
- become angry or upset about what is happening in the present
- anxiously seek to control some or all aspects of life
...then you will absolutely LOVE this retreat!
Find your center in this 50-minute yoga practice designed for all levels.
DEVELOPING A LOVE RELATIONSHIP WITH LIFE
Learn about the difference between resisting and allowing and the consequences of both. Discover why we resist, how to notice when we're resisting, and how to respond to life with love.
PLANT-BASED ORGANIC LUNCH
Enjoy a delicious and nutritious lunch prepared in-house by chef Paul Bunting.
LIVING IN THE PRESENT MOMENT
What does it mean to live in the present moment? Most of us tend to live life stuck in the past or worrying about the future. How do we let go of the grip of the past and embrace the unknown?
In this guided meditation, you will release the past and embrace an exciting and unknown future.
EXPECTATIONS vs. REALITY
Our realities do not always match our expectations. The result? Suffering. Learn how to stay in your lay and how to respond to life and people when our reality and expectations do not match.
CONNECTING TO OUR HIGHER SELVES
Engage in an inspiring activity where you allow your higher self (source) to speak through you, receiving guidance and clarity like never before.
Relax to the soothing and healing sounds of bowls, chimes, bells, and vocals while aligning your energy, releasing energetic blockages, and receiving energetic upgrades to support you with your most aligned path.
Depending on the weather, we may spend portions of our day outdoors enjoying the scenery. Please come dressed appropriately for all activities. Along with a delicious lunch, we will be providing an afternoon snack and herbal tea.
Please bring the following:
- a yoga mat
- a water bottle
- a pen, pencil, or journal
- an open heart and mind
