Self-Love Mini Retreat

You are enough.

Just you. The one with the insecurities. The one who sees her own flaws and inadequacies as though through a magnifying glass. The one who sometimes struggles to really love herself.

Yes, you.

You are deserving of care and tenderness.

The Connections Family Wellness mini-retreat is here to help you step into experiencing self-compassion. We will explore the science behind self-compassion: how research shows that learning to love yourself will help you to be stronger, more resilient, more productive, and
more empathetic. Then we’ll do a deep dive into experiencing self-love.

Transformative Yoga

Not your traditional yoga class! This journey into healing can be taken from a chair or a yoga mat, by people of all fitness levels. We will use movement, breath, and sound to transform pain and create space for greater love and connection. This is a process of emotional liberation rather than physical fitness. Based on the pioneering
work of Paul Dennison, this model draws from many yogic traditions, including kundalini, laughter yoga, dance your yoga, and hatha yoga, vinyasa yoga, and restorative yoga. It was also informed by the grief and trauma research of David Kessler and Peter Levine.

Crystal Singing Bowl Sound Bath

We will take a guided sound journey using the healing vibrations of crystal singing bowls. Sound healing promotes relaxation by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system. Because each
bowl is tuned to a different chakra, this experience also invites balance and integration. And we will do it all with a special focus on love.

Group Reiki Healing

Reiki is an energy healing technique shown to increase relaxation and reduce stress, pain, and anxiety. It is used as a complementary practice at many hospitals, hospices, and pain clinics. You can read more about research into the effectiveness of reiki here. As a group experience,
this will be a mini version of what might be experienced in a full energy healing session.


We will use journaling, meditation, and movement to process emotion and connect more deeply to ourselves in a powerful and compassionate way.

For You, For the World

Self-compassion heals you. In the process, it ripples out to heal everyone else you come into contact with. The more you are loving, balanced, and at peace, the more you will also be naturally empathetic, resilient, and strong. This is your opportunity to love yourself, and love
the world.

The next retreat date is June 18, 2022, 1-5pm. Please call (801) 871-5118 to register.
