Rock Steady Retreat

With Denise Hopkins & Rachael McGowen

May 7-10th, 2020

Streamside Retreat Center

Andes, NY

Picture a river rushing, never stopping, never exactly the same composition of force or energy or matter. That’s your life. Now picture a rock in the middle of that river, peacefully biding its time, ever evolving yet solid and strong in the face of all of that movement and chaos. That’s you. 

The practices during this May retreat will help you to be that rock: to stand strong in the face of life’s pressure even when your story lines feel chaotic. We will explore the power of discerning your truth and staying true to your core so that you can be proactive in the face of change or difficult decisions. With grounding practices and going within we hone our brilliance and clarity, become more balanced in our responses, clear in our actions, and free to evolve as we need. Our lives are full of shifting sands, but with grounding practices we can be the steadfast rock that holds strong. 

The weekend includes six yoga or other mindfulness practices, incredible homemade food by our favorite chef, optional sessions with our favorite bodyworker, hiking and exploration of the sweet artsy town of Andes, community building with other retreaters, and just plain relaxation along a stream in upstate New York. Prices include all sessions, meals and lodging.
