Délassement. A fairly literal translation would mean “un-weary-ment” or refreshment. If there’s one thing our souls need after this extraordinarily taxing year, it’s a cool, refreshing drink. We will look past this difficult collective journey to focus on what is to come. As hope emerges, wisdom asks that we pay attention to what is happening within us.
Why this retreat
This facilitated, virtual retreat will offer space for your own heart, soul and body to find renewal. Together, we will focus on presence and beauty through offerings of words, walks, journaling and creative prompts. It is intended to be a restorative weekend of cool, refreshing drinks for your soul.
Who will want to come
This is designed for individuals or small groups of women. It’s for those who are tired from lovingly tending to clients and family over these many months. Anyone in need of some nurturing personal time and restoration is welcome. While you can join from home, we’d encourage you to rent an AirBnB or find a place to truly get away for the weekend. If you can safely invite other friends, even better, as small groups will be part of the retreat. Access to a stable internet connection will be vital for full participation.
GREAT IDEA: consider gifting this retreat to a woman in your life (or for Mother’s Day!!) who would be thrilled for some personal time!
The bulk of the retreat will be for YOU to design your own time around several carefully timed emails with nurturing content, prompts, embodied activities, creative pursuits and reflections. Prior to the beginning of the retreat you will also receive thoughts on how to prepare your physical space and your heart and soul. We know people are ‘zoomed out’ by now, so we will leverage this platform carefully to limit screen time. Two full group meetings will take place on Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. Two small group meetings will happen in between these. (We anticipate total screen time to be about 3.5 hours for the weekend.)
