About the Event
Immerse yourself in a holistic experience that integrates breathwork, yoga, meditation, nature walk, and mindful creative expression activities. From breathwork to yoga, meditation to mindful activities, each element is thoughtfully crafted to guide you towards inner stillness, balance, and personal growth.
You will stay at Cedar Springs Lodge, a 100-year-old dairy barn converted into a retreat center. This sprawling 50-acer property is situated along Day Creek in the Skagit River Valley, about 90-minutes north of Seattle. It has 9 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, a cozy living area with wood-burning stove, and a deck with sweeping views.
You'll be grounded with daily yoga and meditation practices; nourish yourselves with delicious vegetarian meals; relax and unfold into the beauty of the present moment.
Find your strength, flexibility, and inner peace through mindful movements of guided yoga. All levels are welcome.
You will practice several yoga flow sessions during the retreat. You will slowly and mindfully weave your way through alignment-based practices taking time to workshop asanas using blocks and straps. Expect longer holds peppered in, break-downs of alignment and postures, and a focus on exploration of the breath.
We request you to be truly curious and expect to take a deep and joyful dive into the practice and your own inner ecology and wilderness.
During dedicated meditation sessions, find solace in the serenity of the surrounding wilderness. Connect with your breath, quiet the mind, and experience the profound benefits of mindfulness. Allow yourself to be fully present in the moment, embracing the natural beauty that unfolds around you. We will be practicing guided mindfulness meditations including breath meditation, sound meditation and loving-kindness meditiation.
You will have time for relaxation, self-reflection and journaling. A customized journal will be provided. Dive into introspective activities or engage in soulful conversations with like-minded women.
Nature therapy invites participants to immerse themselves in the serene beauty of the season. Nature becomes the teacher as you encounter the beauty and magical strangeness within its creative cycle of emergence, decay, and renewal. Experience the healing power of nature as Helen Lowe guides you to a contemplative mindful winter walk to attune to the subtle rhythms of the natural world.
Healing Soundscape is a unique experience to explore the profound connection between music and mindfulness. Stephen Podry and Helen Lowe create a serene sanctuary where you will come together to create a powerful collective sound, using various musical instruments. As the group synchronize their rhythms and tones, you will engage in a beautiful form of self-expression while fostering a profound sense of unity and connection.
Rediscover your inner strength, gain clarity, and restore balance to your mind, body, and soul. Leave the retreat feeling rejuvenated, inspired, and ready to embrace the beauty of autumn and the transformative power it holds.
