“For hundreds of thousands of years, humans lived intimately with the earth. We were in the wild and of the wild. Today, we live mostly urban lives―and our vital wildness has gone dormant. As a result, we’re more isolated, unhealthy, anxious, and depressed than ever” Micah Motali, author

Nature And Mindfulness Experience (NAME) contains four independent components which are offered quarterly (in winter, spring, summer and fall). Reflecting both the cycle of life and seasonal changes, each components of NAME are designed for those who want to create breakthroughs on different themes that show up in our lives, in the company of other like-minded explorers. All experiences are facilitated by experienced coaches in inspiring and/or natural environments.

Focus for January: Renewal for a Conscious 2020 (Theme - Fire)

On this one-day retreat, using the theme of fire, we will “burn away” the old and what no longer serves us in order to renew and refocus for a conscious 2020. We will make time to get grounded, reflect, and connect with oneself, one-another and our environment. Being and working with nature can be deeply healing, as well as increase our receptive presence and clarity, thus, using nature's elements, we will practice mindfulness, somatic integration,coaching and contemplative exercises to support our evolving selves. In addition, we will use guided group activities and shamanic rituals for what wants to be called into help us manifest our dreams and to release what is blocking us in our path moving forward.

Through these activities, we will explore questions such as:

● What brings you fully alive… to step into your best self?

● What are things you yearn to create... to be more fulfilled?

● What are you passionate about right now that will propel you forward into creating your dream in / for 2020?

● What (simple) actions will you take immediately?



Aim is for you to walk away with clarity for your path ahead and with commitment to concrete actions steps -- to help you to create a more fulfilled and aware perspective, and enable you to have increased consciousness, clarity and purpose in your life.
