GRAY BEAR SPRING RETREAT 
Return to Self 
March 24th-26th

Inhale. Take a deep breath, turn your awareness inwards and welcome what you find there. Exhale. Welcome yourself exactly as you are.  Feel your way down into your body.

 

In a culture that is catapulting us forward at extreme speeds we forget we are deeply intuitive beings intimately connected to the rhythms and cycles of nature. We invite you to slow down, feel, drop into your senses, and escape into the beauty of nature. We will explore a variety of yoga practices including postures, restorative/yin, pranayama, meditation and sound healing led by Ashley Haselton and Mika Groscost. Yoga will be offered once on Friday 4:15p, twice on Saturday and once on Sunday. All levels are welcome. 

Gray Bear Lodge is located in Hohenwald, TN. A short, one-hour drive from Florence. There are over one hundred fifty acres of rolling hills for hiking, natural springs, a crisp shower in a waterfall, sacred moments in a hand-built wood-fired sauna, and a stone hot tub for soaking.

Vibrational healing in full flow! A sound bath offers deep healing, and invites full relaxation through the mind and body. You will be guided into Savasana, supported by blankets, bolsters, blocks, an eye pillow, and any other cozy things that allow you to feel at ease.


Sound Bowl Therapy, as with any form of healing, is energetic and vibrational. Energy and vibrations are in constant circulation and flow. Our physical vessels are made up over 60% of water, and the vibrations of the bowls impact the body on a cellular depth, with the help of the water element. Aiding in the release of any past traumas, conscious, or unconscious~subconscious, and offers clarity through the body, as well as, fires up the digestive system.

 

Enjoy a timeless moment of Guided Meditation and Blissful Relaxation. Ananda.
