Wisdom of Cell and Soul

Practices for Navigating the Deep Changes of this Time

Treat yourself to a nourishing full day retreat at beautiful Taft Gardens and Nature Preserve led by mother and daughter team Katherine and Taran Collis. They will share their extensive background in meditation, yoga therapy, body literacy, and spiritual counseling to make meaning of these challenging times.

The retreat will focus on understanding the deeper transformative forces at play in the three stages common to most transitional (liminal) experiences: breakdown, break-in, and breakthrough. These threshold markings impact us personally at every level, playing out in our communities, society, and on a planetary scale heralding the embodiment of a new consciousness. 

Practices will help build resiliency, inner strength and alignment to what is emerging rather than that which is falling apart. The retreat is suited for people of all ages, particularly those in need of self-care, healing and nourishment within a supported spiritual community. Participants will experience a mix of presentation, gentle Yoga movement and Capacitar self-healing practices (www.capacitar.org). Participants will leave renewed and reconnected to their source of vitality, vision and a sense of greater purpose.

"Early December retreats are my favorite. As we move towards winter solstice the subtle becomes almost palpable. This season allows us to connect deeply with spirit and surrender to the light within".
