BEAR MEDICINE: A WINTER RETREAT with Laura Adrian

  • Date: Friday, February 24th, 2017
  • Time: 7:00 – 9:00 pm
  • Cost: $40 (sliding scale available)
  • PRE-REGISTER here

Slow down….Breath….Nourish….Heal

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.

What’s Included in the Full Event:
-Event starts at 7:00pm and will go until 9pm
-Custom yin yoga class to connect to nourish the body and connect
-Hand-crafted herbal teas support relaxation of the body and mind
-Group healing with craniosacral therapy and botanical medicine
-Reflection time which allows for a quieting of the mind

* Sliding scale is available for registration of this event. Please contact Tula Yoga & Wellness by email or phone if a sliding scale is a better option for you.

What wisdom are you bringing with you from the dark of winter? What are you awakening in yourself? Night and day are in equal balance at the time of the Spring Equinox.

Opening through these meridians can lead to health, vitality and contentment.
