Breathe in the cool crisp air of the mountains. Walk along wooded paths as you listen to the softness of Mother Nature's sounds. Smell the leaves, pine, wood, and grass... scents that only exist far away from pavement and busyness. Feel the vastness around you as it quietly reminds you of all that you truly are.
This is the intention of our Asheville, NC ReTREAT. Our hope is that in the course of 3-days, you can nestle into the calm and quiet of the mountains and spend 100% of your time and energy to nurture yourself. When you step away from the life that surrounds you, you get an opportunity to reflect, ask yourself important questions, connect to spirit, and explore what means the most to you. These days will be a journey of self-love, joy, and healing.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Over the course of the ReTREAT, you will participate in stillness, movement, and discussion. More specifically:

When you take time to nourish your body—your mind—your soul... what you get is priceless. It's a feeling, an experience, that when lost, you will seek it out again and again and again. If there were words to place upon it, the closest would be clarity, peace, and a sense of wholeness. A feeling like you stepped back into who you are and you can take your life back.
