About the Program
Make a conscious choice to step out of your daily life and open to a new way of connecting with nature, with self, and with your spirituality. Research has long proven that connection with nature has a profound healing effect on the physical and emotional health of human beings. This weekend is an opportunity to connect with nature on a deeper level, get to know ourselves better, and develop a calm and alert mind. By doing this we can begin to live our lives with greater ease, clarity, and joy. We’ll spend time throughout the weekend learning and practicing techniques for quieting the mind, including meditation, enjoying silence, and movement practices (if you’re new to these practices, you’ll get plenty of instruction).
Led by Dr. Heidi Schreiber-Pan and her team of therapists and coaches. Home cooked meals will be served! Please get in touch with any questions or special requests. We will be spreading out rooms to keep safe during covid.
Introducing a whole new "on the water" approach to your mental health!
What Participants Say:
“What a special weekend! I am in awe about how smoothly and nurturing the weekend was for me! I had some idea what to expect and the weekend exceeded my expectations!! "
“I gave myself permission to step outside my comfort zone just enough to benefit from awesome personal growth. Receiving comfort from other fellow humans who feel the same anxiety as myself was very awesome. "
“The whole weekend was perfect timing for my life's journey. I feel refreshed, enlightened and new! I've been sharing my experience with my dear friends who have been wondering what my weekend was like. Joy leaps out of me as I listen to myself explaining the "Peace in the Wilderness" weekend story. I'm full of smiles! "
