Mid-May is the height of spring in Lucile. Every tree and shrub is showing off, including the Locust trees with their fragrant blossoms. The river will be high, rushing just below the labyrinth.

It’s the perfect time to bring yourself to the river canyon for a weekend of blended practices. We’ll focusing on asana, or movement while integrating meditation and pranayama, or breath work.

With respect, curiosity, and intention, we will:

  • ease into a restorative practice Friday night
  • have a guided meditation and Shavasana before bed
  • build a more energetic asana and pranayama practice Saturday morning
  • hike a local trail in the afternoon as a meditation
  • sink into an extended energetic and restorative practice Saturday evening
  • enter optional Sacred Sauna as a meditation and archetypal journey to the well
  • integrate the weekend with a beautiful Sunday morning practice

Weather permitting, we’ll practice outside as much as possible. We’ll integrate conversations about your insights and challenges throughout the weekend, along with plenty of walks and downtime. All levels of experience are welcome. The only requirement is to bring regard, curiosity, and intention.

These practices cultivate:

  • less reactivity
  • flexibility, strength, and balance
  • emotional resilience
  • ability to focus and concentrate
  • reduced anxiety
  • increased daily energy
  • personal intuition and insight

You’ll receive ample support from others in the retreat and the Haven itself.

Retreat includes all meals from Friday supper through Sunday mid-day dinner and lodging in one of our accommodations. Be nourished by delicious, homemade, Haven-harvested meals carefully prepared by Brandy Henson.

Please arrive Friday between 4:00 and 5:00 pm Mountain Standard Time. We close Sunday afternoon with lunch and appreciations. Guests are encouraged to stay Sunday night for an add-on of $50 to quietly integrate the weekend and enjoy the Haven.
