Well Being Retreat Center - Event
"The Art of Belonging" Retreat
with Chelsea Green
July 22 - 24, 2022
About the Workshop
This workshop will consist of educational and experiential activities such as mindfulness, meditation, and other embodied practices such as gentle yoga, guided drawing, and Family Constellation experiences.
The term 'constellation' arises from the way these sessions look from a distance. Although the other workshop attendees are often strangers, they can be chosen by the client to stand and temporarily represent their parent, sibling, grandparent, significant other, boss at work, or themselves. The focus of constellations are to get the participant in touch with the resources they need to create the change they want in their own life.
"As a systems-based therapist and meditation teacher, I use tools like
mindfulness and Family Constellations to meet those I work with right
where they are, and to also provide space for something new to arise."
This weekend retreat experience will explore some of the following questions:
Do you feel like you have to get rid of negativity in order to be “good" or "spiritual”? If yes, how might this belief be denying or bypassing your lived experience, or the experience of others?
How can we ground ourselves in reality with a regular meditation/mindfulness practice? What are the barriers to this practice?
How can we connect to our roots through nature, embodiment practices, and honoring ancestors? What can we learn once we re-connect?
This experiential retreat is for those ready to look within at some of the more challenging events or situations they've faced in life; something they’re looking to move beyond or better integrate into their daily lives. This weekend is also for anyone looking to unplug, unload, and unapologetically be themselves in the company of the most serene nature that Tennessee’s mountains have to offer.
Check in will be 4 to 5:30 pm on Friday July 22nd and the program will end by Noon on Sunday July 24th. Meals will be non-vegetarian with a vegetarian option at each meal. Meals are generally gluten-free. Some vegetarian meals may include organic eggs and some limited organic dairy . Meals include Friday supper through Sunday lunch.
