'Inward' Rural Retreat
Spring Equinox
March 18-20 

Experience a balance of structure & space in the season of 'in-between'. 


Join Joy for weekend to replenish your energy and reconnect with yourself through gentle, body-based practices intended to release stored winter tension and emotion from your body, connect intentionally, and breathe well so we can shift toward a more intentional Spring.

Our year is a circle and has a rhythm.  Equinox's are the balance points -  equal day and night - Nature's invitation to pause. 
This retreat is a time to acknowledge & release the winter & begin to set intentions for the next season of growth.
