 Ayurvedic medicine is a 5,000 year old system of healing that originated in ancient India. In Sanskrit, ayur means life or living, and veda means knowledge, so Ayurveda has been defined as the “knowledge of living” or the “science of longevity.”  It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Its main goals are to promote good health and alleviate disease. During this retreat you will have a general overview of the foundations of Ayurveda, discover your unique constitution, and learn how to apply the the tools of Ayurvedic wisdom to your daily life.

The Mothers Healing Together Retreat is a weekend gathering for women who have endured the devastating loss of children.  Spending time together gives us an opportunity to share our stories, celebrate our children, learn from one another and develop new coping skills as we continue to walk this path of grief.
This year our retreat will begin on Friday evening with music and will conclude after breakfast on Sunday.  Feel free to book additional nights for relaxation and renewal. We are hoping that you will join us and also bring a friend.  We’re looking forward to seeing many new and old friends.

It is $290.00 for the weekend which includes the retreat, your overnight accommodations and meals.

Register for the weekend here.

The Daring Way-The Post Pandemic Permission
3-day Intensive Workshop
Retreat Leader: Cate LaBarre

Join us for The Daring Way,

You followed all the rules during quarantine. You survived; maybe you even thrived. You experienced deep loss and received unimaginable gifts.

Now what? Take time for you. Give yourself permission to maintain every supportive practice you wish to keep. Give yourself permission to play, to practice radical self-care, to deepen your relationship with your precious self, to “show up, be seen, live brave™” in ways you never dreamed before the pandemic.

Explore what it means to live a wholehearted life post pandemic and make choices that move you toward a more authentic expression of your true self. Give yourself permission to:

  • Be vulnerable and ask for what you need.
  • Hold boundaries beyond quarantine – say NO without excuses, say YES from your heart.
  • Reclaim your worthiness.
  • Understand shame and perfectionism.
  • Cultivate authenticity and give up people pleasing.
  • Practice empathy, self-compassion, gratitude, and self-kindness.
  • Embrace play as an integral part of self-care.
  • Let go of the need for certainty.
  • Explore core values, trust, self-expectations, longing, and more…

Cate* gently guides participants through creative exercises and inner exploration of The Daring Way™ curriculum, based on Dr, Brené Brown’s bestselling books and offered exclusively by trained facilitators.
