Focusing on women’s empowerment and well-being, experience a journey into mindfulness, qi gong, forest therapy and sisterhood through a guided personal wilderness immersion. Beyond the borders of cellular waves, disconnect to reconnect to the natural elements, yourself and community.
Words do no justice in describing the magic that unfolds for those that show up for a retreat of this length and nature. Becoming absorbed in the natural world while in community, having all that we truly need in our canoes, creates a sense of spaciousness, simplicity, and empowerment. Connecting with the natural rhythms of sun, moon, stars, water, and earth brings us back to a more authentic and ease-filled way of being.
