June 2-4, 2023
(Friday 7pm to Sunday 3pm)
‘Inward' Somatics & Sound Retreat
Join us for an intimate weekend of self-connection and deepened awareness. Attune to your own needs and find a new rhythm. Special guest and co-host, Sara Clefstad Holistic Voice Educator, will be offering experiential teachings and practices to explore the interconnections of voice, vibration, and sound to our innate wellness.
Over the weekend, you will:
Tune into your body's needs with gentle, guided practices designed to increase your felt-sense awareness (weave of Bodymind Ballwork, somatic movement, breathwork)
Learn basic nervous system literacy (polyvagal theory), explore a variety of body-based practices to shift your state.
Befriend the vibrations of your own voice (spoken, inner voice and maybe even singing voice) and develop a more compassionate relationship with it.
Explore the way you perceive your own mind-body connection, core beliefs, and vocal mechanics.
Experience an introduction to conscious connected breathwork with live sound.
Experience meaningful and authentic connection through circle, nourishing meals, and fire-side chats.
Practice listening with attention and sharing authentically with intention and imperfection.
Release stress and find inner calm in the container of this cozy home, the quiet countryside, the wood-burning sauna, and the co-created, sacred circle.

What people say
"Joy and Sara co-created a beautifully safe, supportive and caring environment for all of us to go inward, calm down and release some tension. I am still in awe at the internal shift I felt after just one weekend in Joy’s peaceful country home. The weekend was filled with authentic and meaningful connections. We arrived on Friday as strangers and left together on Sunday as dear friends. If you are feeling pulled towards booking one of these retreats just do it! Take the dive and invest in yourSelf! It is beyond worth it!!" ~ Michaela
What people love
"Authentic & meaningful connection with others; the remote, peaceful location; knowledgeable, compassionate, authentic facilitators."
"Connecting with others in an open and kind environment. Morning movement. Sauna time."
"The breath work, there were so many nuggets of information that “hit” me in a very positive way. The combination of movement and circle time. You also created a very safe environment and as the days went on I felt more comfortable to share myself."
Food & More
"The food was delicious, nourishing and filled with options. I appreciated that there were always snacks (and coffee!) available."
"I really appreciated the home cooked meals (food from garden), and the dairy and gluten free accomodations."
"Taking the time to come out to Kaleida and connect with myself and others was a wonderful way to sprinkle some kindness on myself." -JD
