Class description

Luminosity. Clarity. Creativity. Joy. Wisdom.

We invite these qualities as centerpieces of our experience on this 5 day journey together. We will dive deep, among the sanctuary of the forest and Superior shoreline, tuning our inner instrument of perception through the gifts of stillness, sacred rest, inquiry and community.

While it is important to have guides and mentors in our lives, our true progress on the path accelerates when we recognize that we contain a wealth of wisdom within, and are actually carriers of the universal pulse of creativity and belonging that sustains us all.

We will draw from methodologies that inspire inquiry and insight, both disciplined approaches and creative unleashing, to unlock your own potential and access Dhi – our inner wisdom. Our daily practices will highlight meditation and yoga nidra, as well as movement (think yoga, mindful walking, dance!), breath, time in nature.

In addition, we’ll incorporate several playful and more experimental approaches of ritual, writing, and creative sourcing. All of our experiences will be aimed at revealing the inner wisdom keeper, for once we know how to recalibrate ourselves and forge this connection, we empower ourselves to become the guides of our paths.
