Partnership Retreat

Friday, June 4- Sunday, June 6 with Special Guest Speakers

Residential Retreat with lodging and food.

Can a RETREAT change the direction your life is heading?

If your relationships, your job, your thoughts “don’t fit” any more… 

If you are seeking an understanding of how partnership dynamics affect your life…

If you need to improve the ways you spend your time and personal energy…

If you need a BIG DOSE of nature-based rest and relaxation…

…then this is the Retreat for you! 

The overarching theme for this invigorating retreat is PARTNERSHIP.

Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of how your unconscious partnership with yourself (mentally and emotionally) affects all your other interactions.  You will discover techniques that will change the dynamics of not only your primary relationships with friends and family, but your secondary relationships as well including professional / work interactions. Our presenters will shed new light on how to approach and understand others as well as how to foster cooperation and creativity with others.  This is the perfect opportunity to relax in nature, make new friendships, and create new personal perspectives.  Now is the time to focus and move forward in fresh, positive ways. See our website for all the details or call the store.  Cost for lodging, food and presentations is $444.

The Goddess Workout® Sacred Geometry Beginner Bellydance

Sunday, June 6, 13, 20, & 27 @ 7:00 – 8:00pm with Amira

Many anthropologists feel that ancient people would use dance as a means to resonate with these patterns and celebrate with their connection to the source of creation.

Each class will focus on a different geometric shape; not only how to execute the shape as a movement, but also the way that shape was part of an ancient language spoken to us as symbolism and metaphor.

After completing the series, students will have a firm knowledge of how to integrate and embody the shapes.  They will have awareness of angles, circles, and lines as well as how the mundane is actually profound.  By practicing these shapes, they will be able to work towards removing energetic bocks throughout their body.  Cost $111 for all 11 classes or $15 drop in.
