Deepening Into Peace and Quiet: A Mindful Weekend Retreat
The next retreat will take place in the Fall of 2017
Enjoy the beauty and splendor of the north Georgia mountains and allow them to replenish and support you as you travel your spiritual path. Come rediscover the quiet and still place at the center of your being where your true self resides – a realm full of gentle knowing, deep peace, and happiness. If you’re longing to get away from the fast pace of the world, we invite you to take this time to turn inward to soothe and nurture body, mind, and spirit. Our silent retreat will provide you with gentle guidance and a beautiful, nurturing environment for deep rest and renewal.
Our time together will include:
- Sitting and Walking Mindful Meditation (with clear instructions)
- Joyful , Gentle Yoga
- Deep Relaxation
- A Fire Circle
- Time at the Mountain Top Hot-Tub and pool
- A Mindful Nature Walk
- Mandala drawing
- Optional Massage Therapy
- Yoga Nidra **
- Social Silence (with time for dialog, sharing and Q & A)
**Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation practice where you experience very deep levels of inner relaxation. Before beginning your journey inward, we’ll take time for you to consider your heart’s deepest longing, which you will carry with you to you innermost self. Here you will be able to rest, restore and tap into new sources of energy, joy and wisdom. Here also you will allow your heart’s longing to be seeded and begin to blossom. This transformative practice will awaken your whole being, allowing you to enjoy life more fully….and all you have to do is lie down and listen.
The pace of our weekend is slow and gentle. You don’t need experience in Yoga or Meditation or Drawing. People with all levels of experience will feel quite comfortable. The retreat leader is Linda L. Davis, MSW. For her bio on this website, please click here.
