Healer’s Respite: Return to Love

A Yoga Retreat for Healers and Helpers

August 4-7th at The Sou’Wester Lodge || $300 + Lodging

For those whose life calling is to help others, it is vital to find solace, delight in the vessel of your own body beside the ocean waves, commune with other empaths and healers, stoke the fires of your passion to help, and heal yourself by slowing down and receiving.

Love is an innate quality, and it is why we serve our fellow humans. However research shows that our health can suffer through too much stress, vicarious trauma, and not enough down time. This event is the embodiment of love, and joy.

Learn about self-care through Ayurvedic wisdom and Yoga Therapy, unlock creativity and inner bliss through somatic play, tap into yoga philosophy as Social Justice, practice therapeutic yoga. Enjoy plant-based Ayurvedic feasts by Chef Cally Fruscello of Seed to Health.

Open to therapists, teachers, activists, caregivers, and other non-professional helpers. Optional to practice silence to rest vocal chords, and throat chakra. Registered Yoga Teachers receive Continuing Education.

Lodging reserved through The Sou’Wester Lodge using the code FAWN.

Each day begins with movement games, warm ups, and prompts to orient and stimulate your highest self, including a complete Hatha yoga exploration to root you in presence. Afternoons are yours to enjoy the Garden Spa and Finnish Sauna, comb the beach, get a tarot reading, and explore the Peninsula. Evenings are devoted to conversations around applied Yoga and Ayurvedic philosophy, and writing. We close every day with a body-based meditation, and yoga practice to soothe the nervous system, and prepare your body for deep rest.
