“We are not physical beings having

a spiritual experience; 

we are spiritual beings

having a physical experience.”

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

In this winter retreat at my home and studio in Richmond Hill we will dedicate ourselves to exploring and strengthening the most important relationship: that between the body and the soul.

Yes, we are spiritual beings having a physical experience, but this is not to diminish the sacredness the body. Care for our physical form is instrumental in our capacity to access the counsel of our deepest self. Simultaneously, the soul guides us to implementing practices that best nurture the body temple.

The 3-day format of the retreat will enable us to take a deep dive into clearing the pathways between the body and soul, and experiencing practices that can be incorporated into our everyday life. With clarity and tenderness, we’ll welcome any current obstructions to the most harmonious body-soul relationship.

Days will be made up of meditation, teaching, gentle movement, sacred song and chant, Circles, rest and free time. We’ll make lunch together using foods of the season, following Everyday Deep Healing and Medical Medium guidelines. You’ll be given suggestions for continuing the retreat experience at home in the evenings.

“The desire to know your own soul will end all other desires.”
Rumi

Retreats are where most students experience breakthroughs in their practice.  

  • Take time away from your usual demands, and rest in stillness;
  • Let go more easily into the flow of life, and deepen into trust;
  • See your patterns with increased clarity and compassion, and use them as a stepping off point for evolution;
  • Gain new perspective on challenges, both personal and global, and relax into peace;
  • Re-vitalize your body, and set the foundation for lifelong health;
  • Deepen and align with your true nature, and create a life of meaning and love.

All levels of experience are most welcome, and as I teach from an intuitive place, each retreat takes on a unique organic flow that reflects the individual and collective needs of the group.
