Full Description

In the midst of this busy world, Mythic Beings carves a sacred space to nourish, recenter and revive. Join a community of women for a transformative yoga and creative writing retreat based on the four elements this summer.

At the Elemental Body Retreat you’ll commune in a rambling old mansion on a river bank. Wander into the organic farm where our vegetarian meals are sourced from the earth. Move into the heart through guided meditation, stretch the body during yoga and ignite the mind during intensive creative writing sessions. Engage generous down time to process the bubbling inspiration, or jump in the lake for a refreshing swim! If you’re truly adventurous, hiking trails begin just across the street, or you could travel two miles to the nearest sandy beach. Place your feet on the ground, your hands in the earth. Trail your fingers in water, let what doesn’t serve you burn away in nighttime fire ritual and release your mind to the endless clouds. Celebrate words in a closing share circle and ease into the safety of women. Ignite the elements.
