STLL, DARK & QUIET: A Winter Solstice Mini Retreat

Wed. Dec. 21 6:30-9 p.m. ET 

~ An online/virtual self-renewal experience~

My beautiful creative, musician mama Juliana (Dec. 20th 1939–March 30th, 2000) with little Renee (age 1) in Houston, TX. Every year I offer a Winter Solstice deep rest virtual retreat in honor of my mother who taught me much about the gifts that come from the shadow.

This retreat is for women of all ages and life stages.

Are you craving stillness, rest and the invitation to just BE? Do you long to reconnect with your Wise Self?  Are you desiring authentic community, nurturance and renewal?  Based on my highly popular Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health self-care retreats, I have designed a deeply restorative mini-retreat experience just for you. Learn the art/science of self-renewal as you:

  • Cultivate self-compassion and self-acceptance for exactly where you are
  • Rest in stillness and receive the gifts that come from being quiet
  • Enjoy a long, luscious Yoga Nidra (called yogic sleep) session for deep relaxation; learn more here
  • Relax and reconnect with your needs, desires, and your body’s natural rhythms (the Winter Solstice is the perfect time for this)
  • Meditate together for enhanced peace and harmony
  • Enjoy song, poetry and deep stillness
  • Balance yin/yang energy and access your feminine power
  • Experience spiritual renewal and access new tools to nurture and fortify your soul

2022 has been grueling; we’re all exhausted. One of the essential strategies for mitigating stressful times is DEEP REST. Rest restores our energy levels, helps us process, integrate and re-calibrate and it’s essential to creating sustainability in a world that never slows down. Schedule this time for yourself now–a wonderful gift to give or receive. 

Enjoy authentic connection with other women as you embrace new ways of being.

“If we feel tired, we think something is wrong. Nothing is wrong. We are just tired. We need rest. Sometimes a lot of it, if we’ve gone for years vetoing our body’s signals.”  Dr. Claudia Welch
