Are You…

• At a crossroad in your life trying to figure out what is next for you?

• Facing a major decision?

• Yearning for renewal?

• Stuck from moving forward by emotional blocks and wounds?

• Disconnected from yourself and others?

So often we tend to dismiss the longings of our heart as superfluous to our daily lives. We have places to go, meetings to attend, and responsibilities to fulfill.

Maybe if we got everything checked off our to do list, we might have time to relax and enjoy, but right now that seems more like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

But what if we started with the heart? How would that change the quality and pace of our lives? By listening to our hearts we gain more clarity about what we can let go of and commit to. Connecting to our heart wisdom helps us to navigate our life with greater skill, creativity, joy, energy and grounded confidence. Healing the limiting beliefs caused by emotional blocks and trauma allow us to step in to our best heart centered life.

During this retreat we will embrace the riches of Sabbath as we relax in nature and discover the wisdom of our hearts. Our time away will include a tapestry of contemplative practices including gentle body movement, guided meditation, subtle level healing modalities, journaling, deep listening and free time for exploration and hiking. Combining these practices in the natural setting of the Wallowa Mountains will be deeply enriching and memorable.

Outcomes of this retreat:

• Expanded somatic awareness as a pathway to contemplation

• Toolkit of meditation practices and healing modalities

• Connection to your own heart’s inner wise counsel

• Ability to discern what wise action looks like in your life

• Experience of deep relaxation and greater resilience

We will follow this simply daily rhythm.
