Sacred Self – Yoga & Wellness Retreat for Caregivers & Community Warriors: Healing & Transforming Relationships

Sacred Self - Yoga & Wellness Retreat for Caregivers & Community Warriors

Part 2: Healing & Transforming Relationships

The second iteration of our Sacred Self Retreat series! Wellness by Micole & Gather for Good, Inc. welcome all those who provide healing, hope, and care for others to give themselves an opportunity to heal and be renewed…!  Whether you are a helping professional, community advocate, or a full-time caregiver in any capacity, we recognize that you are called to heal and serve others. Sacred Self Wellness Retreats are designed to revitalize and give back to those who are in dedicated service to others.

Healing work can often be physically, emotionally, and energetically taxing, and can take us to the limits of our capacity to stay centered in ourselves and connect with others. This year our Sacred Self Retreat will focus on addressing our personal and professional relationships…being in service to others and to a greater purpose can consistently test our capacity to hold onto healthy and fulfilling relationships, no matter the love form.  How do we balance giving and receiving?  How do we recognize a fulfilling connection versus a toxic and unproductive one?  How can we shift patterns of codependency to interdependency, and trust in ourselves and our partners?  We will practice, meditate, explore, share, release, and find answers in a positive environment of humor and authenticity. This retreat is open to individuals and couples.

This retreat includes daily yoga practice & Healing Relationship guided group & partner activities, with the mornings focused on heating and detoxifying via a Hatha/Vinyasa approach, and the evenings dedicated to a restorative practice with guided pranayama, moving and seated meditation. All week our yoga and Healing Relationship practice will be dedicated to raising the vibration of the heart chakra. Also included is one 75-minute bodywork/massage session, access to Kalani's spa & amenities, and visits to the rich & beautiful landscape of Puna including Volcanoes National Park, local hot ponds, and Kehena Black Sand Beach. In honor of our theme and the sacredness of this Hawaiian ancestral land, we also offer an optional Community Giveback activity for those who wish to give thanks to the aina & local community for our hosting our amazing retreat!
