Spring Awakening Retreat – This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
Its time to wake up and awaken the dormant energy that has set still over the winter. Rise up to the light and shake away what no longer serves you & your values. Spring is here. Be ready to blossom, be ready to shine, be ready to wake up to the new you and move forward on your journey.
Just like nature we need to take our time to plant the seeds of our wants and needs; all while sending love and nurturing the process. Using the power of the mind to manifest dreams into reality and understanding that not all growth can be seen by the naked eye.
By taking the time to step away from our normal lives and into nature we give ourselves the biggest gift of all – ‘Time’. Time to pause & reflect, time to get to know ourselves again, time to think clearly, time understand what you truly want out of this life and time to slow down from this busy world we live in…
During this retreat there will be a big focus around nature, connection & growth. There is truly so much we can learn from Mother Nature and all seasons she guides us through. Our ancestors spent nearly all of their time outside in nature and because of this they were so connected not only with each other and nature but also within themselves. As a community they would spend their nights around the fire singing, dancing and telling stories. Throughout the day they would have their jobs to do whether it was finding food, preparing food or making sure the village is safe but there was always time to help each other.
So how can you help yourself grow?… How can you be of service to others?… What makes your light shine?… What do you need to unlearn?… Where would you like to grow and what’s going to help you move forward?… Are you ready?. . . The answer is YES. You have always been ready, your time is now!

Event facilitated by Maddi Watson – What made me first complete my 200hr YTT was the drive to know more about this incredible practice that was slowly changing my life from the way I look at it to the way I felt within my body. Since then the learning hasn’t stopped. I have started to broaden my knowledge completing a 50hr Yin YTT, Meditation & Mindfulness Training, Philosophy and Yoga Nidra training as well as my Reiki 1. It was an honour to be asked to facilitate this retreat at Riverdell and I have truly put my all into it. I look forward to the deep connections and soul growth we will all endure over this weekend.
