The return of spring can stir our passion, our inspiration and motivation. Ideas and desires may be blooming faster than the cherry blossoms. Yet, as any gardener will tell you, this is the time to ground into the embodied solidity of the earth, to hold your dreams as tenderly as a seed sprout and give them nourishment and roots.
This lovely weekend away will balance grounding, nourishing and embodied practices (yoga, meditation, hiking, restoration) with inspired activities (journaling, creative process, guided visualizations, deep community support).You will leave feeling both inspired and restored, with CLARITY about the specific steps you will take to support the growth of your current dreams into reality, whether you are dreaming of deepening your self-care routines, connecting to your creativity, building a business, or simply enjoying your life a bit more.
