In this interactive workshop, we will discuss the healing practices employed for 10,000 years by the Shamans of the Americas.

Guest Workshop

Deep Detox with Erin Holt

Saturday 10/13

It’s the time of year when everyone’s looking to detox. Whether we want a reset, weight loss, or to slough off the winter, we’re tempted (and encouraged) to try something extreme for rapid results. But unfortunately this isn’t supportive of the body’s own rhythm and natural detoxification processes. In fact, drastic detoxes and quick fixes fail to get us the results we’re after, and can even do more harm than good.

We’ve got to GO DEEPER and look not only at what’s going on physiologically within the body, but what’s happening emotionally and energetically as well. This is how we truly detox.
This 3 hour workshop features a short detoxifying practice – including asana, pranayama and guided meditation – along with a discussion led by Erin Holt. We will unpack the wildly misunderstood process that is detox, and you will learn evidence-based ways to support it. Discussion will include:
How detoxification *actually* works in the body and how you can support it everyday
How gut health affects overall health – and what you can do about it
The problem with low calorie diets when it comes to weight loss AND detoxification
The fallacy of self care
How you have the power to change your own genes
What food has to do with all of it
Through lecture and practice, you will examine, release and detox from cultural programming, limiting beliefs and trapped emotions that keep you from creating the change that you want.

The Intuitive Awakening with Katie Lynch, LICSW + Michelle Poverman LMHC, EMP

Saturday 10/20

So many of us are content, and mostly happy with our life. So why do we find ourselves anxious, insecure, and indecisive? When did we start giving our power away? It is time to listen to the little voice inside that is nudging you to reach for something more. In this empowering retreat you will:
+ Deepen, expand and strengthen your relationship with your intuition.
+ Identify the areas of your life that you are seeking change, a shift or an awakening.
+ Release the doubt and fear that has been holding you back from fully embracing your inner wisdom and living the life you were truly meant to live.
+ Explore the ways self-care effects vibration and plays a role in the connection between your intuition and nervous system.
+ Learn and practice the strategies and tools that will help increase your ability to tune in to your inner guidance system.
+ Enjoy guided meditations, sound healing, and journaling that will allow you the opportunity to ground, relax and connect to your highest self.
+ Receive a Reiki healing session (by a gorgeous lake) that is intended to release stagnant energy and clear your intuitive “pathways”.
+ Connect with other supportive, empathic women, who are also ready to awaken their true, powerful and intuitive selves.

Lunar Love Flow Day Retreat-Autumn with Jenn Faulk

Saturday October 27th

Just before Halloween/Samhain, join Jenn Falk for a one day reprieve to check in with yourself at this halfway point into the Autumn season.

Jenn is a mama and lifelong lover of movement who has been teaching yoga for the last 13 years, with the Moon as her main guide.

So earlier this year she released her book, Lunar Love Flow: practicing yoga with the Moon.

This style of practicing yoga brings acceptance to wherever you are at in your practice and life. It allows for connection to the mysteries of the dance between the Sun, Moon, and Earth…through the way we move and pay attention to ourselves.

Throughout our day together at the Moon Lodge, we will make shapes linked to our breath with as much care and compassion that we can.

The morning practice will be a more Yang mix of shapes, while the afternoon practice will embody the Yin styles. Lunch will be provided and a copy of Jenn’s book will also be included.

There will be time for supportive discussion, some light teaching on how to live with/follow the Moon, and space for Free time to take a walk in nature or rest/meditate. We will close the day with a ritual to honor Samhain and the waning Moon moment.

Cost: $170
