WISHLIST

Morning Outdoor Retreat

Unplug, Recharge, and Reconnect with Nature.

Being in nature is shown to have healing effects, both physically and mentally. Nature provides a sense of calm and relaxation which can reduce stress and anxiety. Because our bodies are made up of the same elements found in nature, us humans are intrinsically connected to nature in many ways. 

 

Our Retreat Guides will offer you healing support and connection within this community event of like-minded individuals for your highest good.

"I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order." —John Burroughs
