Full Conference Room

Start off this beautiful weekend of wellness as a collective to honor your retreat experience with an opening ceremony to celebrate connection, community, and intension for the weekend.

7:00pm - 8:00pm

OPENING CEREMONY

Presenter: Karissa McKenna

We honor the intentional gathering of this winter retreat with our opening ceremony, where we will share the sacred medicine of Cacao (optional), to help open and expand our hearts together in circle. Inviting the feminine energy of mama cacao into our lives allows us to soften into the present moment and receive guidance from our most intuitive self. Cacao is a gentle plant medicine that creates space in the body, activates the heart space, creating resonance with one another by connecting with the language of the heart. By gathering in circle to officially begin our retreat, we are laying the foundation of what’s to come. Centering ourselves in our awareness of this present moment will bring deeper connection and potential for expansion in the relationships we cultivate, as well as the experiences that lie ahead of us.

Disclaimer: Cacao is a gentle plant medicine, but may not be suitable for those who are experiencing/

have experienced the following:

Taking antidepressants, SSRIs, heart conditions, pregnant or breastfeeding, taking 5-htp (5-Hydroxytryptophan), taking St John's Wort (please refrain from taking it for a few days before and after the cacao circle). Taking antipsychotic medication, low blood pressure, (be aware that although cacao is a stimulant, it lowers blood pressure), allergic or sensitive to theobromine, and epileptic.

8:15pm - 9:00pm

Meditation to Balance Divine Feminine & Masculine Energies, With Gong Bath for Relaxation

Presenter: Theresa White

Warrior of Arts

The opening ceremony will conclude with a meditation and sound bath to balance the divine feminine and masculine energies within. When these polarizing energies are in harmony, we may experience more stability, creativity, vitality, and compassion.

Open your heart and throat chakra with the sound of your voice and rhythm of your breath, taking you into a deep state of meditation, bringing a state of inner peace and harmony. To end the evening, lie down to relax, integrate, and absorb the healing vibrations of the symphonic gong. Let the sound currents unlock a deep inner sense of wisdom as we gather in group consciousness to begin our journey of growth and connection together.

Breaking Through Procrastination 

Presenter: Tanya Lleigh

Tanya Lleigh Coaching

Ever feel like you’re always behind? 

Like you “should” be doing something else?

Or like you can’t seem to focus on the task at hand?  

Then this workshop is for you!

Procrastination is one of the biggest ways we hold ourselves back and self-sabotage. 

Falling into the trap of “I can do it later” or “there is plenty of time” or “I don’t know where to start", leaving things to the last minute and then stressing ourselves out to get it all done. Together we will look at why we fall into the procrastination trap, how to pull yourself out of it and how to set yourself up to break the cycle of procrastination before it starts. We will end our time together with a beautiful EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) tapping process to anchor in new beliefs around procrastination and self-sabotage to clear out any stuck energy you may have surrounding it.

Yoga Nidra: A Chakra Journey

Presenter: Lisa Moroz

 

 

Yoga nidra is often referred to as yogic sleep; the body and the mind are primed for deep rest through intention setting (sankalpa), meditation, and relaxing all parts of the body. Traveling through brain states and energy layers, you will explore a power which can be accessed when it's in the receptive hypnogogic state of alpha brain. This practice activates a physical and mental release of emotional tension, slows down the nervous system and allows the muscles to relax, helping the body rest, heal, and change belief programming. We will travel through and explore the seven main chakra points during this yoga nidra practice.

During this sound bath ceremony, the crystal alchemy bowls offer high frequency sound waves to wash over you and take you on a journey beyond.
