Who we are today is in large part the result of patterns that we have been practicing for years - physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. We believe that it is important to pause and explore whether or not our current practices serve us or not, and to determine whether or not they support our vitality and wellbeing. This is a unique opportunity to slow down, connect with nature, self and others, and press the "reset" button in an environment that is inherently nourishing, refreshing and renewing - an extraordinary gift to yourself.
