Nourish Your Nervous System: A 5 Day Restorative Retreat

November 6 @ 4:00 pm - November 10 @ 2:00 pm

$1,145.60 – $1,625.60

Join Amanda & Lauren for a Restorative 5 Day Nourish Your Nervous System Retreat: Reset, Restore & Rejuvenate: an educational & experiential retreat to develop practices for nervous system restoration and support.

What to expect:

The intention of this educational and experiential retreat is to approach your mind and body with the intention of helping to regulate, balance and restore your nervous system. We will spend time exploring the nervous system and stress responses so that you can practice regulation and resilience tools that you can take into your daily life. We will bring forward neuroscience, psychology, somatics and other teachings to help explain how the nervous system can be supported and what your personal practice can look like moving forward.

The workshops throughout the weekend are intentionally created spaces to guide individuals in an accessible and informed way to navigate, understand and learn about their internal world. We believe in walking alongside individuals as they build resiliency and agency to understand the workings of their own body and mind. Therefore this retreat includes a variety of different modalities, allowing us to become introspective and support ourselves from the inside out. We will explore embodied practices, nervous system support workshops and so muchmore.Whilst also exploring compassionate self-enquiry through journaling, poetry, and mindfulness.

We know each person’s practice and experience are truly unique and you are your own best guide. We incorporate a mental wellbeing perspective that centres invitation, choice, and curiosity so each person can explore in a truly empowered way. This immersive retreat is designed for anyone and everyone, no previous experience, knowledge, or practice is necessary- we will all be learning, exploring, and experiencing together but in very different and personal ways.
