What people said about the last RSN Retreat:
I was at Deborah Brodey and Wendy Roman’s fabulous retreat up North at Rhythmwood this past fall and the experience gave me insight and perspective about myself. I learned how to connect to nature and I felt safe in this environment to explore different parts of the self. It was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend doing a Radical Self Nourishment Retreat! Thank you so much for the insightful journey!Beverley Rosenberg
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
