Coming Home to Yourself and Easter Retreat

April 15, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - April 18, 2022 @ 2:00 pm

Stop the clock


Are you feeling stuck, empty or disconnected?

Are you moving through life on auto-pilot getting things done but missing the magic moments along the way?

Are you ready to stop the clock, take a deep breath and find your inner peace?

 

Time to Explore


Imagine having 3 days and an abundance of resources to help you explore some of the deeper questions driving your life.

Explore what you really want, what is holding you back, what makes you feel alive and what you are ready to let go of.

Dare to know yourself.

 

Time to Replenish


Let go of your list of things-to-do, and need to care for any one other than yourself. This is a long weekend for serious self love and self care.

Reclaim a sense of wholeness and freedom as you tune into your quiet inner landscape and restore balance to your mind, body and soul.

 

Come Home To Yourself Retreat with the Mana Team


Coming Home is about coming home to yourself, meeting yourself just as you are, with kindness, stepping into love, exhaling, and resting. This retreat allows you, to step out of the complexity of life, the engagement, the distraction and to listen deeply to your body, mind, and spirit. With spaciousness and companionship, we encourage you to delve deeper, to meet your resistances with curiosity, love, and tenderness – to journey deeply with your perfectly imperfect self. This organic, home-grown retreat is hosted and held by the team here at Mana. We provide a caring environment and a daily schedule with resources for self-exploration. Our team will lead a series of soulful sessions to encourage you to deepen your own personal practice or try something new. From conscious movement to sound healing, days in silence to shared community discussions, there will be a range of inspiration for you to integrate into your own Coming Home journey.
