We live in a world where A LOT of our value as a woman is determined by how much we do, achieve, workout, succeed, perfect your body, perfect your yoga, and the list goes on.
We’re taught happiness and connection to our true selves is in a diet, a pill, a book, validation from the outside… and so we seek, and we outsource our own knowing, which often leads to becoming disconnected from what truly lights us up and connects us to our center.
When we deny ALL parts of ourselves we run the risk of living in a metaphorical fogginess, lackluster, exhausted all the time trying to keep up, blocked from our creativity, not as connected as we would like with our lovers and friends… and this begins to come out in our bodies through illness, cancer, depression, anxiety, and pain.
This upcoming retreat is about SHIFTING out of the hamster wheel of doing and into flowing and connecting with your own essence. You need a sacred space away from everything else, an extended weekend to learn how to nourish and fill up your own cup first, so that you can better respond to your day-to-day responsibilities. Immersing yourself in an extended weekend designed for nourishing self-care has proven to be powerful for the women I have hosted through the years, and I feel excited you are here now.
Date: Thursday August 2nd – Sunday August 5th
Timing: Thursday, check-in begins at 8:30 AM & we begin promptly @10:30 am and commence on Sunday @ 11 am.
Location: A beautiful private ranch home in Ojai, CA
PLUS, a Bonus: Your admission to the retreat also includes a special group one-hour phone call before the retreat will all the participants! This is a powerful opportunity to gather together to vision, connect, and plant seeds before our weekend together. I have found time and time again that coming together powerfully and intentionally in this way before we even come together in person supports you in all that is ready to emerge and be created through our weekend. It also creates a space of connection before we gather for our weekend.
In times like we are experiencing nationally and globally right now, now more than ever it is so important to choose to be in containers (spaces) where we are surrounded by like-minded women, and where we can explore and expand into all parts of ourselves. We’re inundated with so much noise daily from the outside world, and it’s essential to carve out intentional time and space like this retreat so you can come home to that quiet voice inside and let your nervous system receive nourishment rather than always running in fight/flight mode.
This weekend is going to be an opportunity to deeply integrate a feeling of wholeness inside you, and to deepen and reconnect to practices that feed you physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.
These practices of self-expression, nourishment, self-care, sisterhood are not just luxuries or hobbies, and claiming This is Me is not narcissistic… rather they are essential to our wellbeing and the deepening of our connection with the truth and our own aliveness.
I am sharing this with you because I too am always learning the importance of caring intimately for ourselves, and here’s what I continue to discover..
As women, we are being taught that we have to fit into the mold of an ‘ideal woman’ or take a ‘magic pill’ or do a ’10-step process’ in order to be accepted and loved. It’s just not true. The quick-fixes and scripted routines are no longer resonant for a woman like you, who cannot be contained or defined, and who deep down knows there’s nothing to “fix.”
When it comes to deepening into self-love, there’s no such thing as an arrival point. Self-love is a practice, and the real commitment lies in learning how to easefully come home to ourselves…each and every time we are pulled away.
The way to create optimal shifts in your life isn’t by going through the motions everyday because you’re “supposed to,” it’s by tuning in and choosing, moment to moment, in a way that deeply honors the natural wisdom and cycles of your being.
Are you feeling curious to learn more?
Maybe it’s a yearning, a heart opening, or something awakening in your body that is peaking your interest.
If you are sitting behind the computer screen feeling a strong pull to learn more, I invite you to follow that impulse.
Next steps to learn more is to set up a complimentary no-strings-attached phone call with me so that we can connect, vision, and see what is possible for you if you were to attend this retreat. We’ll also discuss price and payment plan options.
This is not just your run of a mill yoga retreat, and if you are solely looking for just a physical yoga retreat this is probably not the best fit. During our time together, you will have the safe space to explore, vision, open up a dialogue of appreciation and curiosity around your relationship with your Self, be playful, feel vibrant again, and be part of a community of amazing women!
