This weekend retreat is your chance to pause, have some fun, refresh your spirit, and pamper your soul.

Beneath a waxing crescent moon and surrounded by wildflowers, we will consider the seeds we have sown and recognize what is blooming all around us and in our lives, fostering gratitude, amazement, joy, and celebration. 

 

We will release the hurry and embrace the tranquility, all in the blissful company of like-minded and soulful women. 

Welcoming Springtime, just after the solar eclipse, embraced by the beauty of the Texas Hill Country, we will tune into the rhythms of nature and let the outside world fade away.

Daily yoga and meditation to move, stretch, release, and revive. You will reconnect with your playfulness and joy in a heartfelt, supportive community of women. 

There will be plenty of time to wander, explore and play. You can choose to walk the labyrinth, stroll the nature trail, or hang in the hammocks for some personal rejuvenation time. 

Get refreshed in the dipping pools, enjoy the relaxing wood burning sauna or hot tub, take a cold plunge, and much more!

 
Optional Activities like Horse Yoga and Poly Vagal Massage Therapy make this weekend retreat as open or as full as you desire.

 

And introducing...

Malas and Mantras:

A workshop to create your mala and bless it with mantra.

This retreat is going to be full of sound and song! Special guest Rebecca Lundy is joining our festivities to guide us in creating a mala bead bracelet, perfect for quick prayers, affirmations, and mantra recitation. Our yoga practices will help us find the right mantra for right now, then infuse the beads with Springtime bliss and divine energy. 

 

Bliss Out Sing-Along

Lift your voice in communal song to raise our vibration, share laughter, and promote healing.

Long time teacher and leader of songs in community and song circles, Rakefet Laviolette will lend her talents to our group and guide us through call and respond lyrics to tap into our inner bliss and let it blossom!
