Lymethriving Connecticut Retreat
Spending time together to explore the true nature of who we are, beneath illness, beneath suffering, to realize the peace and love that is ever present, bringing the awareness of it into our lives as an experience of well being. In remembering who we are we bring the expansive and healing energy of peace and love into our lives, regardless of our circumstances….healing from the inside out. The retreat’s primary focus is not on illness or how to fix the body, but rather using the experience of illness as a ‘tool’ to distinguish where we block our natural self-expression and to be knowingly aware of our wholeness.
There will be light structure to include experiential exploration of the Consciousness we are, and to address the steps involved in the journey of true healing. There will also be time for discussions on topics relevant to the participants and their own individual journeys. This is a relaxed and loving time together with free time to do whatever nourishes you. Attire is super comfy clothing. PJ’s all weekend are totally acceptable.
The retreat center is located in a beautiful and peaceful area, around the corner from Topsmead State Forest. Warm and comfy clothing will make outdoor strolls in the labyrinth and the state park possible.
