Healing in Nature
With Rochelle Calvert and Natasha Deganello Giraudie
August 26 - 29, 2021
This weekend nature-centered mindfulness and meditation retreat is an opportunity to heal, re-connect and re-emerge into a greater sense of wholeness in the beautiful landscape of the Colorado Mountains.
Through this retreat, we will explore how nature-based practices, our relational connection to the natural world, and related somatic experiencing can support healing and transformation of challenging or traumatic experiences.
We will have an opportunity to study, practice, and integrate the wisdom of these teachings in the community. You will have the opportunity to relax and reflect, be led on nature meditations, reflective journaling exercises, and beautiful hikes, all while strengthening your skills to integrate it all into your everyday life.
