Embodying Resilience: A New Year Retreat

About This Event

Each new year unfolds another layer of our lives. In this second weekend of 2020, we explore what it means to experience our own innate resilience. Being flexible in the face of change and difficulty, we expand our capacity to return to a state of well-being and balance. When we listen in, mindfully attending to our bodies and minds, we cultivate a deeper connection with ourselves, increasing our resources for personal resilience, as well as our capacity for vitality and joy in the everyday.

This retreat invites a rich process of tuning in and becoming grounded, to live from a place of calm resolve. Through yoga and gentle movement practices, mindfulness meditation, writing explorations, and experiential learning, we will connect with our heart-centered practice and ask the following questions:

 How can we best support the parts of ourselves that need attention?

 What tools help relieve feelings of stress and overwhelm, and bring us back into balance and rootedness?

 How can we connect with our own inner resilience, to more fully experience the present moment?

Come as you are, ready to deepen your self-care and experience your resilience through an inspired path.

*This retreat is for all ages and stages of life. Sondra and Sandrine offer practices which are trauma-sensitive, and all movement is shared with modifications and support for your personal journey. No experience is necessary for any of the practices we'll explore during this weekend.

      Harvest Celebration 2018

    As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

      A Magical Place

    The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!
