Our intention for this retreat is to offer each participant a supportive environment in which to unwind, rest, and practice generative meditation and gentle movement. Over the course of this retreat, we will connect with nature and each other through sitting and walking meditation and generative, gentle yoga practices. We will also incorporate walks in nature, deep rest, and nourishing food into a wonderful program that will leave you feeling restored to wholeness. Participants will also have the opportunity for one-on-one interviews with the teachers to discuss their personal practice and the experience of the retreat.
