The breath is the most accurate and instantaneous mirror for how we feel, think and live. It provides the opportunity to look at whether what we take in is nourishing and life giving or toxic and depleting. By consciously connecting with the breath through a safe and gentle process, we are updating these feelings, thoughts and physical sensations to live with more happiness, ease and pleasure in life. Think of it as a re-boot to your body, mind and spirit when the system is sluggish or not functioning optimally.
Breathwork is a revolutionary approach to body-centered healing. The benefits of breathwork can include: more clarity, reduced anxiety and depression, increased stress-resilience, increased energy, feelings of more ease and flow in life, decreased physical pain, heightened insight, awakened presence, expanded sense of connection with self and others.
In this retreat, we couple breath with sound healing. The foundation of sound healing is that everything in the universe is in a constant state of vibration, including every bone, tissue, organ and cell in our body. When we are in a state of sound health, all of our body parts are vibrating harmoniously at their optimal or resonant frequency. When our vibration is not in sync with our optimal frequency we can feel out of sorts, imbalanced and depleted. What we are going for through sound healing is a whole system that is in resonance and has a healthy vibration. It is in this state that we deepen our state of relaxation, reduce anxiety and tension, and get a boost to the immune system.
Breath and sound healing are powerful ways to access higher states of well being allowing you to feel more energized, balanced and uplifted.

Tracey J. Moon, LMBT Tracey has a warm down-to- earth presence and a deep intuition that helps her facilitate groups with clarity, spontaneity and loads of inspiration. She believes in the profound intelligence of the body and breath and empowers others to live and work with more awareness, happiness, resilience and hopefulness. It is her own relationship with being vulnerably human and her capacity to deeply listen — along with years of meditation, movement, deep rest and a fierce courage to evolve – that most deeply inform her wide capacity to be a healing presence with others.
Tracey has 20+ years experience as a massage therapist and bodyworker and completed her training at The Body Therapy Institute in North Carolina. She is a former faculty member of The Body Therapy Institute and is a graduate of the Spirit of Learning, a bodyworker teacher-training program. Tracey worked at Duke Integrative Medicine in its early entrepreneurial phase where she built the integrative massage program from inception.
She received her initial training as a breathwork facilitator through Clarity Breathwork in Costa Rica and has completed further training in Biodynamic Breath. She is a Certified Integrative Reflexologist, has trained extensively with Claire Marie Miller and is now an international teacher in this reflexology modality. She received her professional training in Mind Body Skills through the Center of Mind Body Medicine in Washington, DC in 2009. Much of her work is influenced by Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program.
Tracey co-facilitates retreats and workshops in the US and internationally with Sharon Nash on the topics of meditation and mindfulness, depression and anxiety, breathwork and sound healing and Integrative Reflexology. They are Approved Providers of Continuing Education by the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB). Their workshops and retreats are open to all.
Sharon Nash, M.A.Sharon brings a unique blend of heart wisdom and strong mind into her work. Her clear, direct facilitation style meshes seamlessly with her dynamic energy, playful exuberance, and attentive presence to create a safe and inviting space in which participants relax and reconnect to their own inner wisdom. Sharon unselfconsciously shares stories of her own spiritual journey and its challenges to remind participants that they are not alone, and that through collective inner work we can foster a powerful sense of community to support and sustain us.
Sharon has a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Auburn University and a M.A. in Liberal Studies from Duke University. She has had many incarnations as a teacher since 1990 including as a secondary mathematics teacher in southern Africa, North Carolina, and Guatemala; as a teacher trainer and online educator in North Carolina; and as a co-facilitator of healing retreats and workshops in the US and internationally with Tracey Moon in meditation, breathwork, sound healing and reflexology. Sharon has completed trainings in Integral Education, Non-Violent Communication and Clarity Breathwork, and also reconnects to her own inner wisdom and guidance daily through her intuitive practice of sound healing.
