Objectives of This Retreat:

  • Explore a whole health approach to resilience for you and your clients that restores the body, quiets the mind, and ignites the human spirit

  • Master unique and surprisingly effective strategies for both energizing or deeply calming the autonomic nervous system (and these techniques can be used on yourself starting immediately!)

  • Collectively address the reality of compassion fatigue and explore tips and ideas for navigating post-COVID counseling challenges and reclaiming the joy of the profession

  • Discover personally how yoga and breathwork can positively shift emotions and perspective

  • Take a well deserved break for yourself!
