We are of the belief that life isn’t just about work or play, growth or fun but a fluid continuum with the conscious creation of balance with an emphasis on wholeness, evolution, integration, and embodiment. We decided to combine forces and all of our superpowers to create Raven Retreats, “Embody the soul”.
Explore the Embodiment of the Soul through conscious application of dance, yoga, sound and energy healing to a personal and collective experience in a pristine setting to re-pattern and encode the cells of the body, the conscious/ subconscious mind. Ignite energetic and emotional bodies remembering lightness, fun, joy, and connection. With the exploration and acceptance of all the human emotions including the sum of all human experiences. We come together to laugh, cry, and play. Choosing to connect with ourselves, each other and the divine. Learning to get inside and traveling outside of our bodies. This will be no ordinary retreat. For the first time ever, we combine the power of ThetaHealing® to restructure the subconscious belief systems with that of sound and movement to clear blockages, release stagnation. Fully claim the beauty of who you really are!
