The energy of the Northern Door of the Medicine Wheel is hibernation, just be-ing and restoration. It is the place where there is nothing to do, everything from this journey around the wheel is complete. In our fast paced culture, this space is rarely honored, typically completely bypassed as we move hurriedly onto the next thing in our busy lives. This steps away from Nature's rhythm, not allowing for us to honor and integrate what we have just met in our lives. It also steals the valuable opportunity for our nervous systems to complete their processing cycle, unplug for a moment and subsequently reset.
The invitation for this retreat is to immerse ourselves in this energy, i.e. relax. We will have a soft schedule each day that will include gathering in circle, cooking and eating, playing games, resting, movies, bodywork/massage treatments, story-time, alone time, and yin/restorative type movement. Everything that is offered will be an invitation and not at all mandatory. The intention is to be in exploration of resting, self-care, doing what feels right in the moment vs. doing what needs to be done. Nothing needs to be done. Although there will be no agenda to push internal process, we will be a conscious community in relation daily, remembering what it is to stop, unplug, take space, and re-Source; this piece in and of itself will be the impetus of natural self- inquiry for each of us. The experience will be playful and light, also offering the opportunity to just have fun with each other, to put down our hero's journey for a moment and laugh.
The retreat is open to all! Bring your partner, friend or family member. There are shared and private rooms available.
All diets will be represented. Adult beverages will be available as well.
We will be in Northern Arizona, pine country, where it is sure to be a cozy winter spot.
