Retreats & Workshops
Growing Resilient Together
The wholeness and freedom we seek is our true nature, who we really are.
Our Journey from Here:
Ever Changed and Ever-Evolving
Emerging from an extraordinary year, profound changes and questions may be persisting within you. What are the most meaningful insights you discovered? How will you journey from here? During these retreat days, we will explore -- through narrative, contemplative practice, and soul tending -- the deeper impact of living through unimaginable realities and how we move forward in the full creative expression of who "I Am."

The system's view of health expands the understanding of well-being beyond the homeostatic focus on mechanisms by placing health and disease on a continuum and considering individuals within their biopsychosocial contexts. This program introduces foundational neurobiological principles that impact individual and interpersonal resilience and provides practical skills based in positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness practice that support the brain-body system’s natural capacity to heal and to anticipate new challenges.
