About this trip

Peace. Connection. Beauty. Clarity.

Treat yourself to a weekend to reconnect with your Self and others leading up to the Spring equinox as we enjoy a two nights stay on riverfront property over 100 acres on a beautiful barrier island.  


Welcome the equinox with us at Epworth by the Sea, idyllically situated on the Frederica River on St. Simons Island, Georgia, surrounded by ancient Live Oaks draped in Spanish moss. Enjoy this serene location as you unwind and take in the beauty of island life. St. Simons is a barrier island off the Georgia coast, known for its salt marshes and sandy stretches of unspoiled beaches.

 

The end of winter can sometimes feel a little unsettling. The energy shifting from an inward-focus to outwardly-focused can make you feel a bit off-kilter. The dawning of Spring is a time for Implementing changes required in order to grow & flourish. At the Spring Equinox, the Earth returns to a place of perfect balance. Day & night are equal, the light & the dark––bringing the return of some much-needed balance into your own life. With the Spring Equinox your spirit is waking up with new ideas & new dreams for your life, providing fresh, warm energy with the power to make you feel alive & inspired. 


We will gather to practice a range of Yoga including asana (postures), pranayama (breath techniques), Yoga Nidra, meditation (including sunrise beach meditation), bicycle exploration and more. You will emerge feeling fresh, energetic, light, clear and in body and mind. 


Spring is a time to celebrate change. After 5 retreats in the Gainesville, FL forest, we are shifting this season's retreat to a waterfront conference center location at the beautiful Epworth by the Sea.


 All activities and classes are included yet optional. Itinerary subject to change.

The autumn retreat far exceeded my expectations. Elizabeth and Tamara guided us through a program that offered a unique friendship building experience. Yoga, meditation, dancing!, healing bowls, Ayurvedic cooking lesson, 🕉 chanting, and delicious vegetarian meals…all the things! Thank you for the love and support 🙏🏻

The retreat was a wonderul gift to myslef. I wanted to realign and shift into better self care practices and be in good company. I didnt think about the food beforehand but that was truly a longlasting inspiration to eat high quality, well thought out meals. Now I'm looking at my own shopping and meal prep with more care. The weekend kicked off good habits that I want to continue. Also had a very meaningful early morning sitting meditation expererience that is still resonating with me. Loved Elizabeths calm & deeply knowlegable guidnace especially the Aum workshop meditation. Tamra has a glow, a lighter energy that infuses you during her yoga & playful side during the ancient circle dance, reminding me not to take it all so seriously, have FUN. However as great and inspiring as those benefits are to me, I have to say, the very BEST part of the retreat was being in such fun uplifting all arouund awesome copmany. Bonded with new friends that I look forward to staying in touch with even working togeter as we had shared interest and found common paths to connect on in the future. Highly recommend this retreat!!

AWESOME!!! What an amazing, well-organized, educational and inspirational retreat.. In modern terms, just the right balance of healthy living tips combining care of body, mind and intellect through science of Yoga, Pranayama, Ayurveda, Devotion and Self-knowledge. There was clear instruction, peaceful surroundings, nature walks and delicious food. It was impressive how efficiently the teacher (Elizabeth Henrichsen) got each attendee involved in cooking of a most delicious elaborate Ayurvedic lunch (including dessert).. The venue (Chinmaya Govardhan Ashram) was as perfect as can be thanks to Swamini Radhikananda Ji.. Swamini JI's lecture on Equanimity was the icing on the cake. What more blessings can one get in day! It was one of the best quickest decisions I have ever made. I look forward to more such events in the future. I would highly recommend such a retreat to anyone interested in Self-reliance. BLESSINGS! Thank you!!!
