Replenish Fall Retreat– Choosing Happiness
September 27-29, 2013
Sugar Lake Lodge, Grand Rapids, MN!
Join us for this Fall Retreat entitled “Choosing Happiness”. Fall represents a time of year that allows for a cooling off. Animals prepare for hibernation, plants shed the Spring and Summer colors and fronts…it is a time of honoring letting go, moving forward. We may enter this season with joy of another new beginning, new schedule, new possibilities,…or we may enter it with regret of having to let go of summer, vacation, and sun. Often times Fall leads to a hectic Holiday Season and stress of family and perfection around events and schedules…..then we run into the year end expectations of how we will be a “better” version of ourselves in the next year.
Sometimes life throws us challenges, surprises and hurt. This two day retreat will give us the opportunity to explore the ways in which we invite and choose suffering in living, giving us a fresh perspective on where we can choose to let go of old habits and move into this season of transition with more grace, awareness and contentment. The Science of Yoga allows for an in depth look at our behaviors and choices that drive discontentment, unease and unhappiness in our lives. This retreat will give us a chance to look at our personal views, choices and options to set ourselves up for a way to apply Yogic tools and principles that make for greater satisfaction and gratitude in living!

I acknowledge this is a serious financial and time commitment…but my experience is it is priceless! I loved the TT200 so much I went on to complete the 500 hour course! <<Here is the registration form>>
