Food as Medicine

with Kate Kill
August 19th
from 1-4 pm
$50

“From food life springs forth, by food it is
sustained, and in food it merges when life
departs”. Upanishads

By understanding the properties of food, digestion and the qualities of our own bodies, we can move towards optimal health. With new diets and trends, it can be confusing to know what is good for us, much less why. Join us to learn how to create physiological harmony. We will explore the qualities of food and spices and how they affect each stage of digestion. Leave with an understanding of nutrition that is simple and grounded.

Pre-registration is required. 48 hour notice is required for refunds.

This retreat’s focus is Forgiveness: The Art of Letting Go.

The new year is a perfect time to let go of some of our accumulated heaviness. This retreat is an opportunity to take a closer look at our experiences and process the emotions surrounding them. Forgiveness is a process. And whether someone has betrayed you or you’re having trouble letting yourself off of the hook, it’s worth the work. Holding on to hurt feelings has a negative effect on both our thinking and our physiology. Join us to explore the art of letting go, looking into the wisdom of the
Yoga Sutras and drawing from other yogic techniques that make room for acceptance and healing.
