Fri, Nov 2 2018 6:00 PM Sun, Nov 4 2018 5:00 PM

Friday November 2nd- Sunday November 4th, 2018

at Sierra Hot Springs, Sierraville California


This Healing Retreat weekend is for anyone who feels the desire to fuel up thier hunger for belonging. On the journey around the seasonal wheel, this is a time for us to bring our attention and energy inward and focus on self care and knowledge. When we nurture ourselves we are more available for being present with others in community. You will have the opportunity to engage in our conscious dance community as we offer our passions for dance and movement, art, drumming, and sound healing. There will be plenty of time for soaking in the hot springs, eating good food and relaxing together. 

Check-in Friday November 2nd at 5pm- Retreat ends Sunday November 4th at 5pm
