A WEEKEND RETREAT IMMERSED IN GRATITUDE For those who are looking for a way to meaningfully celebrate Thanksgiving this year join us for SolYoga's first Gratitude retreat November 22-24, 2013! It's that time of the year time to give thanks for all of the abundance and gifts that have been harvested in 2013. And what better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than spending a whole weekend focusing on gratitude while surrounded by natural beauty and soaking in the healing pools of Avalon Springs!
Led by Katia Sol, this weekend retreat will immerse you in the uplifting and transformative practice of gratitude. You will be guided in developing a daily gratitude practice, through time in circle, alone, and on the land. We will reflect on what we are grateful for from 2013, in preparation for the coming Solstice and New Year. The retreat also includes a daily gratitude-themed yoga class, a hike in the beautiful Mayacama Mountains, delicious meals prepared by the onsite therapeutic chef, and plenty of time for reflection and soaking in Avalon's healing mineral hot pools.
The healing waters are the heart of the Avalon Springs experience. The mineral hot springs of Avalon have been honored for centuries for promoting harmony and wellness. Relax and unwind in the Magnesium-rich Medicine Spring Water. Experience the skin-softening effects of the Boron-rich Mother Spring. Melt away tensions while feeling the strengthening effects of the Iron-rich Dragon Spring. And stay hydrated with your choice of seven different mineral drinking springs, flowing fresh and clean straight from the earth.
You will return home from this retreat rejuvenated and with the foundation needed to continue a daily gratitude practice that can transform your life. For, "The moment you shift from a mindstate of negativity or judgment to one of appreciation, there are immediate effects at many levels of your being: Brain function becomes more balanced, harmonized, and supple; your heart begins to pump in a much more coherent and harmonious rhythm; and biochemical changes trigger a host of healthful responses throughout your body. Especially in difficult times, remembering to return to gratitude is a radical life-affirming act that builds your capacity for resilience." (M. & J. Levy)
