During retreat we will:

  • Take time to land, ground, earth and grow our connection with mother earth for a near 20 hours in guided silent meditation practices.  This includes a night sleep and opportunities for foresting bathing.

  • Discover and feel how earth's vibration heals us, calms our neural system, resets our body, mind & soul.

  • Explore how to integrate earth, breath work and centering into our daily lives for less stress, anxiety and chaos.
