“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.” Thich Nhat Hahn
Retreats in Nature are a wonderful way to take time out and unplug from the busyness of life and can provide an opportunity to think more deeply into what is going on in our inner lives, our relationships and our world. When on retreat we give ourselves the chance to connect with Nature and be with our self, surrounded by like-minded peers in community. Together we heal, we commune, we gain clarity, we breakthrough, we receive guidance, and allow ourselves to be nourished. Retreats can provide an opportunity to find deeper meaning in our lives and can be wonderfully uplifting, transformative and lead to greater fulfilment.
What a radical weekend this was. I am a fan and even a lover of transformation… I never thought that I could heal through movement.. and expressive arts! This combination of Deborah Brodey’s Radical Self nourishment through Niyamas, vedic chanting, sounding and yoga ..mixed and beautifully integrated with Wendy Roman movement and Nia facilitation was MY winning combo!!! Introspection and dance … instinctual and effortless. We as a powerful group shared through dance, words, chant, sound and even our food. Our lake dip to finish the cleansing…. magical and bonding! This weekend will stay with me for a long time. I am in awe of this powerful combination and Rhythmwood, the space, the land, the forest. Thank you for being there for me and for all… Shifting the web together and now a time for sacred sisterhood.Maria J Diaz
