Join Laura Loewy & Jen Wyatt for an immersive all-inclusive Women's Retreat experience on the quiet Winter Harbor side of Acadia National Park. Come ready to integrate into a deep healing weekend of hiking, biking, mindful movement, sharing circles, journaling prompts, ritual, ceremony, and a deep connection to the earth.
All meals and lodging are included. We will be staying in apartment accommodations at the Schoodic Institute right on the breath taking tip of the Schoodic Peninsula.
HEALING THE FEMININE
We believe the bond between women is one that is sacred, but often plagued with insecurity, mistrust, or competition. We believe in the amazing healing power of women coming together, and hope to create a space to foster deep healing around these female relationships. This retreat will be focused on healing the female bond through movement, nature therapy, storytelling, ritual, journaling, and sacred listening.
Part of this experience is being immersed in some of the most pristine nature in the world, where the forest meets the sea. We will spend most of our days outside, either hiking, biking, or kayaking (weather permitting), as well as participating in sacred circles outside wherever possible.
While yoga is often thought to be a physical practice of creating shapes with our bodies that stretch our muscles and work with our breath, we want to encourage you to consider the full picture of what yoga truly is.
"Yoga is a discipline to improve or develop one's inherent power in a balanced manner. It offers the means to attain complete self-realization." (The Ministry of AYUSH) In this framework our entire weekend is in fact a practice of yoga. From the moment we meet one another and set intentions, to the the first steps on the summit of a mountain we are practicing yoga. This means, that while we will offer the asana (the physical practice of yoga) throughout the weekend, please remember that everything is subject to weather and trail conditions. While our intention is to lead your through several full vinyasa, yin, and restorative practices, based on the variability of the outdoors our yoga class could range from a mat practice on the ground, to a standing practice with our boots on, or a stretch session in tents followed by a deep meditation. Most of all every physical yoga session will be all levels so we invite all people to participate.
We appreciate your willingness to leave all expectations at the door and give into the flow of our weekend adventure!
