Joyful Soul Retreat – Hosted by Jennie Lee
If your soul is calling, it’s time to listen! Body, mind and spirit come together through yoga, writing, meditation, communion with horses and connection with like-minded friends. Let your joyful soul lead you positively forward. This retreat is a heart and mind expanding adventure, from which you will feel the next steps of your life unfold with clarity!
Knowledgeable wranglers match you to the perfect horse, whether you are a complete beginner or an expert rider. An introductory riding lesson is included if you wish and you will learn how to be comfortable and commune with these majestic animals. If you are an advanced rider, you will have great freedom to explore the countryside on numerous types of daily rides. Those who wish to practice the symbiosis of yoga, meditation, and riding will benefit from increased peace, balance, flexibility and body awareness in the saddle.
Meditation & Yoga
Jennie’s classes are an unexpected mix of therapeutic as well as challenging yoga postures, breathwork to quiet the restless mind and meditation to develop deep inner listening, all intuitively delivered at the right level for whoever is present. She draws from a dedicated personal practice of the Eight Limbs of Yoga as well as her studies in Spiritual Psychology, and Body-Centered Psychotherapy. Regardless of your experience in yoga or meditation, you will enjoy her inspired flow, something different each day, integrating many styles and approaches to nourishing the body and mind through the classical teachings, anchored in Love.
Spirit writing workshops
Let go of daily concerns and allow your creativity to rise like a sunrise from your heart. Whether you are a professional writer or a journal doodler, we will use this writing time to align with deep inner knowing. Jennie’s guidance in spirit writing will help you quiet the restless mind, so you can feel inspired and at peace. The workshops are times of self-reflection through writing prompts, as well as optional sharing and facilitation toward increased clarity of expression for those working on something specific. Participants also receive $100 of a Spirit Writing Package with Jennie before the retreat.
