WHY GO ON RETREAT?
“Retreat” differs from “vacation”. It is a time for quiet reflection, contemplation and inner inquiry. Retreat time removes us from our usual busyness and provides an opportunity to relax - becoming less identified with our conditioned tendencies and more connected to our Natural state.
CONTENT OF PROGRAM
While held within the field of Divine Mother, this retreat will enrich our connection to Dark Goddess and Shadow energies in an embodied, integrated way.
You will experience balance and wholeness as we explore the Sacred Feminine in all its forms. We blend yin yoga with other movement practices, meditation and social silence. Yin yoga is a deep and passive practice while the yang style has a slow and therapeutic approach. Shake Your Soul® is a playful dance-based program.
Teachings from various traditions and sources along with mindfulness activities, journaling and meditation will enhance the movement practices, while the silence provides a powerful and transformative container.
The retreat was truly beyond what I could have imagined.
The yoga and meditation retreat is a wonderful time to step back and enter within to contemplate what might be released and healed.
Janine is an an amazing person with a wealth of information that she shares so willingly, so gently, and effortlessly.
Going on retreat is one of the greatest gifts I have ever given myself.
