============================= The Art of Health & Happiness ================================
Gather together over three glorious Spring days with a group of like-hearted women and feel any stress and tension melt away. Begin each day to the sound of birdsong with guided sacred embodiment practices within a safe and therapeutic space as we cultivate inner peace allowing awareness, healing and happiness to blossom. Feel the spark of joy as we connect more deeply with ourselves, meaningfully with each other and intentionally with nature in the beautiful natural surrounds. This is an invitation to drop into a timeless space of beauty and relaxation that invites us to show up as our authentic selves.

During our three days together you will be lovingly guided through: * Mindfulness Based Practices * Energetic Medicine Practices * Eco-art Workshop * Sound Healing Journey * Hatha Yoga Practice * Breath-work * Sacred Women’s Circle * Mantra SInging & more!
