Join Lisa Jakub and Cecily Armstrong for a restorative and empowering retreat exploring various aspects of emotional and physical wellness through writing, yoga and community.

In a creative exploration you will delve into the roles that anxiety and the inner critic play in your daily life and gain a deeper understanding of your purpose, connection, and authentic power. Through reflective and grounding practices including yoga, breathing techniques, meditation and journaling you will realign with your inner stillness as you can reconnect with your true, authentic self and feel strong in your body. Learn to use writing as a tool for authenticity and discover how to make healthier choices for physical and emotional nourishment in your everyday life so you can engage with the world in a fulfilling way, plus enjoy free time to enjoy the beautiful mountain retreat center.

…all this with a lot of compassion and a bunch of laughter along the way!

No writing or yoga experience necessary.
