Connecting to the Elements- Evening Retreat
Teacher: Rochelle Calvert
Activity: Evening retreat
Address: Zoom link will be sent after registration
Heal in nature with the support of elements awareness practices- earth, air, fire, water, and space. Spend the evening exploring meditation practices for deep connection to nature. Through mindfulness nature elements practices, somatic experiencing practices, teaching, journaling, community, and support, you will have an opportunity to find a greater connection to yourself. You will learn ways to cultivate a greater sense of peace, equanimity in the challenging times, ways to open your heart and learn skills to integrate these practices into your everyday life that will support your healing. We will use the community, nature, and healing of the elements to support the healing of the body, mind, and heart through connection to our inner elements and the world of elements around.
