Food is an integral part of retreat. The Eastern medicines have always known that how we digest thoughts is directly related to how we digest our food. Throughout the retreat, this awareness arises naturally as part of our exploration.
Our personal, French chef will be creating our meals from locally grown food. Full vegetarian, allergy aware fare to keep us nourished throughout our retreat.
Beautiful Expansion through Somatic Stretch®
A family lineage from Grandfather to Mother to Daughter, you will be guided by Meredith into the refined regions where easy movement meets its first edge, and carry your Body into the realms of open, easy engagement.
We will weave our way through an understanding of our own fractal anatomy and use this knowledge to help us get to the core of pain syndromes, releasing issues more easily, without strain.
We will be learning about the stretch reflex and how we can move so little, and yet gain so much in even the short span of a moment. Learning Somatic Stretch® gives us tools to bring home to help you transition through pain syndromes, to fluidity and ease.
Frozen shoulder? Low back pain? neck and shoulder tension? Digestive issues? Sciatica? We will be covering your specific challenges, change the way you feel and give you techniques to take home so you can keep yourself moving in a pain-free direction.
