It can be so seductive to get caught in the busy-ness of life. Focussing on what’s next, achieving more (and more), and overcommitting are habits that can bring us away from our heart and health.
Bear Medicine retreat is an evening of self-care, visioning, and reconnecting to your truths. Inspired by the bear, you’ll experience the power and beauty of reflection, nourishing (the body, mind, and spirit), and taking it easy through yin yoga, journalling, and a deeply relaxing guided group healing where each person will receive CranioSacral Therapy.
Wintertime is a fertile time to heal, dream, nourish, and reflect. In a very real way, the harsh winters of Minnesota challenge the mind, body, and spirit. We can either fight the challenges, or evolve from them.
In this mini-retreat, we tap into the wisdom of the bear. As the bear retreats in hibernation going into a deep sleep to nourish, we’ll do our own version of hibernation in the span of an afternoon. We too can learn from the wisdom of the bear, using the stillness and serenity of wintertime to connect to our soul, care for the body, and create a new vision for the future. This retreat will invites us to work (or play!) with stillness, reflection, self-discovery, and inspiration. The experience will deepen your connection to self, nature, nourishment and bear medicine.
The retreat works on multiple levels. On a physical level, the yoga poses, relaxation, and herbs help to still the mind and deeply relax the body. On another level, it works by awakening you to new inspirations, insights, and perspectives on the seasons, nature, life, and Self.
As you breath in, the scent of sage, cedar and pine will create more spaciousness and clarity for your journey within.
