About This Event

Release tension and trauma with TREⓇ, a cutting-edge technique in stress reduction. Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) are a series of seven simple exercises that initiate the release of deep muscular patterns of stress and tension held within the body. An easily learned self-help method, TRE has immediate effects and can be integrated into your daily routine to help restore inner peace and relaxation.

In this workshop you will discover the relationship between deep, chronic muscular tension and the functioning of all systems—neurological, biological, anatomical, and emotional. Gain an understanding of how living with chronic stress and the overwhelming effects of trauma can impact your daily functioning.

Through didactic and experiential presentations, you will:

Caliber, sincerity, and commitment from Jacy made this more than just a ‘learning’ experience. It became a ‘life’ experience. — D.S.

Jacy’s breadth of life experience and background in psychology give her the tools to be patient when needed, or direct and candid when called for. What I most appreciate about the workshop is Jacy’s spiritual focus, the way she teaches to search for deeper truths in everyday experiences. She chooses her words carefully and is a good communicator as well as a good listener. — L.L.K.

I appreciate Jacy’s calm, poised presence. She taught with authority and heart. Jacy ’s groundedness, presence with each of us, her peace, calm, and wisdom in her teaching made for a great learning opportunity. I felt the connection with her heart. — B.A.S.

Truth is One, Paths are Many. ~Sri Swami Satchidananda, Yogaville Founder

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Watching the sun come over the mountain in the morning inspires me! Holly
