You are so much more than what you experience, see and know.
Your magnificent body holds all of the wisdom to heal and awaken, to remember the spirit of your soul and let go…
This weekend, let go of what keeps you from your dream;
Let go – into the abyss of your Self.
Join Jamie and Grace in 4 days of silence, community and nature to draw into your Self and your Source. This retreat will lead you to quiet your entire system in order to re-awaken your senses. Together we will unravel traumas and contractions as we engage our bodies in practices of drawing in, cleansing and moving through. We will learn to reflect upon the Earth’s natural rhythms and draw in the energies of the Autumnal Solstice – dreams, reflections and letting go.
Group sessions include daily guided breathwork and meditation, tools to release stored traumas and contractions, movement, sound and ceremony. You will leave with a blueprint for your daily practice – the foundation for healing. Come prepared to cleanse every dimension, seen and unseen, as we engage all systems in a conscious slowing down and reawaken our intuition to inwardly listen and heal.
Our food will reflect this intention to slow down and dissect our distractions. We will spend a day in digestive silence with organic juices, tea and water. All other meals will be light, fresh, organic, vegetarian, gluten, dairy and allergen-free. And, of course, made with Love.
Held at the beautiful Skalitude Retreat Center in the Methow Valley, WA, participants will have ample time to explore the ancient sacred lands, take a sweat in the sauna, and breathe and dance in the pristine natural surroundings. This is the perfect setting for you to remember your connection to the natural healing rhythms that live within and around you at all times.
The retreat will be held in a sacred container with opening and closing circles. We ask all attendees to arrive and depart as one group (times below) to honor this container. We also invite you to bring an offering as there will be a space to share your medicine and your dream.
With gratitude, Jamie & Grace
Jamie and Grace have a combined 35 years of experience helping to guide individuals in remembering the medicine in their heart through healing modalities of the body- mind-spirit.
Grace Bryant has been a whole life educator for nearly 2 decades, integrating drama, music, movement, meditation and yoga, mindful living, creative play, teamwork, conscious collaboration and leadership. Her Yogic path began in 2005 when her sister dragged her to a Yoga class in Federal Way. She fell in love with savasana and came back just for relaxation.
In 2007, she was inspired to start teaching informally and since then has studied and taught in 6 countries and devoted her entire life to the journey of awakening. Grace recently completed the Hridaya Teacher Training in Mexico and is beyond grateful to have received the teachings of Advaita Tantra and the Spiritual Heart. She believes these teachings can transform the consciousness of anyone who practices them sincerely.
Grace’s favorite classes are those which expand consciousness and also incorporate how to live with more awareness, trust and compassion. She leads classes, discussion groups, workshops, women’s groups, and retreats in the Pacific Northwest and abroad with a focus on living with an open heart. Through her many teachers she continues to unfold into a deep sense of peace and trust and hopes to share this in her teachings.
Jamie Renee Lashbrook is a devotee to and warrior of the human spirit- lover of all creatures seen and unseen. She entered the world of healing with a simple desire to invoke remembrance in you. For you to remember your song, for you to remember, tell and transform your stories of love and pain. For you to feel that undercurrent of truth and wisdom that has walked with you every step of every day even when you have felt your most empty and alone. For you to feel connected deeply to your amazing body and understand the language it speaks. For you to remember Love.
In her private practice she blends Maya Abdominal and Clinical Visceral massage, healing breath work, mentoring, herbal wisdom and ancient healing practices based in shamanism and reclaiming traditions. She is highly versed in the functions of the body and dis-ease; specializing in trauma/stress disorders, digestive and reproductive health for men and women. She engages the wisdom of the body through touch, voice, breath, silence, prayer and the healing balms of the Earth.
Her own healing path is her greatest teacher. She commits to this path daily and finds her greatest healing in nature, in silent meditation, song, community and her family. She brings this all to you when Silence Meets Soma. More information can be found at www.wellbellyhealing.com
