Dance & soak!


Reset this Summer Solstice in a healing retreat.

Energy… where is it flowing easily in your life? Where does it feel stuck or too intense? Energy naturally seeks equilibrium and harmony. Challenges arise when we impose our ideas on how it ‘should’ move. The ancient chakra system holds essential keys to finding this balance and fostering healthier relationships with ourselves, others and the world.

Exploring the chakras via the healing, moving meditation map of the 5Rhythms®, we embark on a journey of embodying these vital questions: Do I feel grounded and supported? What’s my relationship to pleasure and nourishment? What empowers me? What is my heart saying? Where is creativity manifesting in my life? Do I trust my intuition? How does spirit inform my life?

Restore and revitalize yourself on this residential retreat discovering how energy works within and without. Enjoy soaking in the sacred waters of Elim Hot Springs for a weekend of deep healing and integration of body/mind/spirit.

"Movement is the movement of change. In my experience, if you put your psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is the medicine. Each of us has the power and responsibility to heal ourselves, to be our own medicine man or woman." ~ Gabrielle Roth, Founder of the 5Rhythms
