Description

See the beauty and magic in all elements of life. Feel your heart expand — and experience the true sacredness of your unique journey.

Over the course of three nourishing days you will learn how to let the power of love into your life. And as you create the space for it, love will release you from your limitations and guide you into a deep and healing connection with yourself, others, and with nature.

 

Using yoga, meditation, breathwork, journaling, and nature connection you will:

  • Let go of the stories you tell yourself that hold you back
  • Tap into the joy of wisdom and wonder within you
  • Learn how to live fully without doing more
  • Connect with yourself through soul writing and self-inquiry
  • Move your body with ease and grace to soothe the nervous system and feel new, vibrant energy
  • Fall in love with life

You will go home with a deeper understanding of how to live authentically, and a renewed connection with nature. You will also take strategies back into your everyday life which you can use to continue the work of letting go of old habits, and creating new patterns which align with your true self.

Open to all.
