Earth Wisdom Gathering: Dowsing, Labyrinths, and You

This very special event is for all people interested in deepening their connection with the earth and themselves.  Join Labyrinth and Dowsing expert Marty Cain for a day of learning how to douse and the myriad uses of dowsing; how to use labyrinths; how to understand and measure auras, our personal energy fields; and how to communicate directly with your Higher Self.  You will get hands-on experience with dowsing rods, view a slide show of labyrinths, walk a labyrinth, and gather with like-minded friends.  We'll also do some light stretching to start the day, and lunch will be served. 

Because this event has been generously sponsored by a donor, it is free to all.  We do ask you to RSVP by 10/13 so we know how much food to prepare.  To RSVP, email me by clicking here, and you will then get directions to this private land in South Woodstock, VT.  To learn more about Marty and her work, click here.

Close out summer with a day for yourself to heal, explore, and enjoy!  We'll begin at the Camp Plymouth State Park in Ludlow, VT with a Yoga Hike, an invigorating moving meditation led by Miss Amanda that uses the natural features of the forest to help us loosen our hips through various yoga poses.  After our outdoor savasana, we'll drive to Plymouth to reward ourselves with a gourmet vegetarian lunch at Good Commons, a sweet, homey retreat center dedicated to the mission of providing calm, healing space.

This practice has a myriad of benefits including strengthening the immune system, releasing stress and improving the heart and mind connection.  Beth will then open the circle to a shamanic journey led by drums. This ancient practice helps allow a greater view of our energetic reality, gain wisdom and heal and balance our bodies.

Mid-Summer Mindfulness Retreat

“You can use your mind, to change your brain, to change your mind.” 

- Rick Hanson, Meditator + Neuropsychologist

Change your mind on this tranquil, informative retreat with visiting mindfulness meditation teacher Gena Adams-Riley and Miss Amanda.  Together, we will be guiding you through a day of yoga, hiking, mindfulness meditation, discussion, and a fantastic communal lunch. We will practice mindfulness in various settings: not only on the cushion, but in the woods, on the mat, and even in the hot tub!  

Gena is eager to share her knowledge of Contemplative Neuroscience, research-based science which clearly demonstrates that mindfulness practices such as yoga and mindfulness meditation have positive, profound, and scientifically-measurable effects on the brain.  These changes in your brain contribute to a happy, healthy, long life.  Learn to do these practices with Gena, a mindfulness mediation teacher with almost 20 years of experience. 

Our day will begin at the Camp Plymouth State Park in Ludlow, VT with a special Yoga Hike, an invigorating moving meditation led by Miss Amanda that uses the natural features of the forest to support our yoga poses and focus our mindful attention.  We’ll then reward ourselves with a gourmet vegetarian lunch at Good Commons, a sweet, homey retreat center dedicated to the mission of providing calm, healing space.  Afterward, Gena will lead a discussion on Contemplative Neuroscience and practice of seated mindfulness meditation.    

Our retreat will continue with a soak in the Good Commons hot tub, and we'll finish the day with the practice of yoga nidra, or "psychic sleep," a guided meditation that will relax the body so that you can seed positive affirmations into your subconscious mind.  

Ready to make positive change?  Your investment in this all-inclusive event is $110, and if you bring a friend, each of you will receive a $10 discount.  Please preregister by contacting Miss Amanda at this link.
