Join us for a day long women’s retreat to nurture the feminine within you.
In these times of very masculine “yang” energy that we live in, we need to take time to slow down, breathe deep and support a loving open heart. This day long retreat will start with yoga and meditation led by Lynn Absher and Maitri Smithhisler, followed by lunch and satsang. The afternoon will be a nourishing and restorative 2-hr immersive sound healing journey presented by Sundari Allampudi.
The last half hour will be a Gong Therapy session where Sundari will use multiple Gongs and create an amazing session of Gong Therapy. We will combine this with restorative yoga postures for a completely relaxing and healing experience!
Feel free to bring your favorite blanket, eye pillow, and any other comfort item to help you reach that place of total relaxation. Other restorative yoga props will be provided.Heal the body/mind, raise your consciousness with immersive sound healing and yoga!
