ELEMENTAL : A PERSONAL JOURNEY
BACK TO THE NATURAL WORLD
Elemental is a spiritually nourishing and transformative personal retreat, which acts as an antidote for the disconnects of modern life.
A half-day retreat which explores our innate tendencies to connect deeply with the natural world
through walking, rituals, meditations, healing & journaling
We return to the beliefs of indigenous peoples
that there is wisdom within
the trees, plants, mountains, rocks & animals.
Elemental holds open the door where the physical & spiritual intersect, meeting this intrinsic knowing that
we are one.
"The breeze at dawn
has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep." ~ Rumi
out of balance
Our modern world has us living at warp speed.
This pace has given rise to a heightened sense of urgency in every detail of our daily lives.
As humans doing we've lost touch with our connection to the ebb and flow of our natural biorhythms which is resulting in sleep disorders, digestive disorders, increased anxiety, depression and overall malaise.
This is not who we are.
This is not why we are here.
We are human beings, here to co-create.
There is a call for us to pause and recalibrate
with our internal power sources.
As we disconnect from the man-made world and reunite with the natural world, we realize we are in communion with the ancient, innate wisdom of living systems. A wisdom that begins to inform how we show up in the world.
Through this communion we restore.
Through this communion we evolve.
Indigenous cultures honor the spirit of Earth.
They revere mountains, water, trees and animals as spiritual beings in unity with all things.
There is wisdom here for us too. We learn to walk with them, to communicate with them. We learn that we are part of an enormous web of life. We learn to lean in to a sense of support much greater than anything we've known.
With this wisdom, we understand.
With this wisdom, we thrive!
