Workshops & Activities
We are excited to bring you a mix of our favorite experiences, in a weekend designed to connect you with yourself, a loving community, and incredible natural surroundings. All workshops and activities are optional and no experience is needed.
Roll and Unwind Gentle Yoga + Therapy Ball Rolling
A unique combination of soothing breath strategies, guided therapy ball rolling techniques, mindful movement, gentle stretching and restorative yoga postures. Calm the nervous system, increase body awareness, relieve tension patterns and leave feeling relaxed, centered and renewed.
Tarot decks will be provided for use during the retreat. We will use them as a tool for self-reflection, to gain deeper access to our archetypal story, to access the opportunities available to us in the present, and to create beautiful paths of possibility and potentiality for our future.
Connect with the body vibrationally through sound. Enjoy as a mix of singing bowls, chimes and drums bathe you in relaxing sounds to reset your nervous system, reduce stress and anxiety, massage your body with the vibrations, and help you achieve a higher state of consciousness.
Slow Flow Yoga
A meditative blend of focused intention, traditional asana, functional movement and pranayama in a slower-paced format designed to cultivate awareness and inspire mindfulness both on and off the mat. Open and accessible for all levels of practitioners.
Nia is a wellness and fitness format that combines the expressiveness of dance, the power and explosiveness of martial arts, and the mindfulness of the healing arts. Nia is a holistic practice that creates a pathway for you to explore both your movement potential and capacity for wellness. As you learn to listen and respond to your body, you begin to feel increased joy and pleasure in movement, which inherently improves your well-being.
Created by Jennifer Lucero-Earle, ArcanaDance is a therapeutic practice designed to facilitate self-discovery, empowerment, transformation & healing through a fusion of tarot, archetypes, guided movement & music. Arcana is defined as a secret. Dance is defined as movement to music. When fused together, ArcanaDance is defined as a secret that is revealed through movement. No tarot or movement experience required.
Mindful Arts & Crafts
Creating is so more than the finished product. In fact, the finished product doesn't really matter. The process of creating can be meditative and relaxing. Inspire yourself with a fun creative practice.
Get support in starting or continuing your journaling practice with gentle guidance, journaling prompts, and encouragement.
Give your dreams a tangible representation that you can utilize in your daily practice for manifesting and attracting what you want in your life. A vision board is so much more than pictures glued to a poster board. We'll go into techniques for creating the perfect vision for yourself, and what to do with it once it's complete.
The darkness of a moonless sky coupled with the solace of the desert offers the perfect opportunity for stargazing. Snuggled in a blanket away from light pollution, you will see millions of stars, maybe even shooting stars!
