Have you recently (or not so recently) experienced a loss and are still struggling with what happened? Do you feel like grief has overwhelmed you? Do think that after all this time you should be feeling better? Do you wonder where you can find support? These situations and questions are typical and normal when someone experiences loss. Loss of a loved-one, loss of a pet, loss of a job, loss of a dream and other losses that life throws at us can sometimes be unbearable. In talking about your struggles, receiving support and immersing yourself in a nature-filled, caring environment, you may discover ways to see things a little differently. Join us for a weekend of reflection and discovery. The program is presented by experienced grief group facilitators who will present topics for discussion and guide you through the weekend.  Learn more Register here .

Upside and Down: Exploring Perspective Through Writing and Yoga
with Joanne Nelson and Sabré Page
June 17–20 (Monday-Thursday)
Tuition: $275, plus housing and meals

Through yoga we open ourselves to possibility. Our bodies stretch and grow strong, our spirits are deepened, and our minds relax and renew. When the body, spirit, and mind are united, amazing things happen. Integrating writing experiences with a yoga practice enriches and enlivens the opportunities for creative growth.

Looking at everything in a new way—right side up, upside down, or sideways will be our theme. We will practice a variety of yoga poses and writing techniques designed to help us view ourselves and our writing from new perspectives. Combining these modalities allows the inner and outer world to be explored through a different lens as we experiment, play, deepen, and grow.
Whether you are a seasoned yogi and writer, or just beginning to explore, you will grow from from this innovative workshop filled with techniques that can be applied to all levels of practice and all genres of writing. Time will be available for writing in silence as well as for optional sharing in a safe and supportive community.

Participants will return home with a greater awareness of how writing enhances a yoga practice as well as how a yoga practice enhances creativity.

• To identify ways of skillful coping when you are triggered   
• To slow down and take time with yourself: “Something in me feels that” – gradually separating out from the felt sensation that is acting up
• To uncover the unconscious script(s) operating from inside of you
• To change the script which will gradually change your life
