Emerging: Self Healing, Self Care and Seasonal Attunement, Spring 2017

A Holistic Non-Residential Retreat with
Carly Forest and Dr. Kristin Schnurr, ND

Location: Roundhouse Farm (formerly Sleeping Dog Farm)
Dates: March 10-12 Friday night 6-9pm, Saturday 10-5pm, Sunday 10-4pm
Cost: $320, Early Bird Pricing $275 until February 10, 2017.

Early March brings the beginning of transition from the place of deepest yin – inwardness, quietude and stillness - into the first stirrings of yang.  We sense something coming to life and look for expression of this, both within and around us.  In Five Element Theory this is the transition between the elements of Water and Wood.  It is a time to bring the formless into form.  This can be a challenging seasonal transition both physically and emotionally.  It is also, however, an opportunity for us to bring forth emerging aspects of our essential nature.

In our retreat we will be exploring practices and teachings that integrate eastern and naturopathic understandings of self-care and self-healing.  In acknowledging our intrinsic connection to the earth and all of life, we develop an increased awareness of how our personal inner landscape is deeply connected to and affected by the seasonal landscape.  With the arrival of Spring we will be focusing on emerging within ourselves with connection, direction and patience.

Together we will explore alchemical Taoist teachings interwoven with naturopathic principles of health and well being as they relate to this season.  And, through the practices of yin yoga, meditation and personal inquiry, we will create a potent container for self-healing and transformation.

Taking Shelter – Finding healing, depth and meaning in Winter A Holistic Non-Residential Retreat with Carly Forest and Dr. Kristin Schnurr, ND

This weekend retreat is offered as an interlude and an invitation: to learn about the qualities, elemental nature and energetic imprint of the season and how you can honour and tend to these same facets within yourself.  Learning to relate to and navigate your own inner winter is especially potent in a season that is known for its mental, physical, and emotional hardship.

Near the end of November, our corner of the earth has turned her cheek almost entirely away from the sun.  There is more darkness, more stillness. It is a season ruled by Yin.  In Five Element theory, this is a transition time between the metal and water elements; a time that encourages us to rest, make contact with our own deepest waters, and cultivate receptivity.

This weekend retreat is offered as an interlude and an invitation: to learn about the qualities, elemental nature and energetic imprint of the season and how you can honour and tend to these same facets within yourself. Learning how to relate to and navigate your own inner winter is especially potent in a season that is known for its mental, physical, and emotional hardship. 

Through an integrated approach that combines eastern philosophy, naturopathic principles, the science and spirit of self-healing, and embodied practices, we explore ways to deepen our seasonal attunement to create vital health and wellbeing. You will gain insight and tools to help you navigate the emotional terrain of the season and ritualize self-care.  You will learn how to best care for your physical body so that you can fully house your spirit. And you will be reminded of your innate ability to heal.

Join us in the conversations, self-inquiry and deeping embodied yin yoga practices that will help us meet this time of year wholeheartedly.

Join us for a weekend of practice, inspiration and inquiry as we explore the possibility for healing and increased self awareness in our daily lives. 

In mid February we will be in the midst of the transition from the place of deepest yin – inwardness, quietude and stillness, into the first stirrings of yang.  We sense something coming to life and looking for expression, both within us and around us.  It is time to bring the formless into form. This can be a challenging seasonal transition both physically and emotionally.  It is also an opportunity for us to bring forth emerging aspects of our essential nature.

In our retreat we will be exploring practices and teachings that integrate eastern and western understandings of self care and self healing.  In acknowledging our intrinsic connection to the earth and all of life, we develop an increased awareness of how our personal inner landscape is deeply connected to and affected by the seasonal landscape.  

Together we will explore alchemical Taoist teachings interwoven with naturopathic principles of health and well being as they relate to this season.  And, through the practices of yin yoga, meditation and personal inquiry, we will create a potent container for self healing and transformation.
