April 29 - May 5
Living from the Inside Out with Karen Joyce and Judith Johnson
Grace retreats is dedicated to this powerful theme which helps us to connect to that place within where our instinctive knowing guides us to live with more presence and authenticity.
We will continue to explore a combination of ancient eastern disciplines including meditation, pranayama and yoga, as well as more contemporary energetic therapies, psychological approaches to self understanding, and an alkalizing diet. The results in past retreats have been powerful, and the program evolves each year as an expression of our own new training and discoveries.
The retreat is five full days (6 nights). Mornings are dedicated to silent time, meditation, pranayama and basic yoga. These powerful practices connect the body, mind and spirit, and serve as important preparatory work for the self understanding and energy healing techniques which follow later in the day.
Judith is the developer of (PNE) psycho neuro energetics (www.psyconeuroenergetics.net) and has been practicing and teaching internationally for over 30 years. The pne technique uses pressure points to stimulate memory in order to release and process traumatic memories from our past.
Karen will introduce various psychological approaches to self understanding and guide the group in breathing, meditation and movement (www.weargrace.com).
The retreat will be a maximum of 10 participants, and we will work closely in small groups.
This year we welcome you to the beautiful Villa Pietrina, a 17th century country home nestled amongst the olive groves and vineyards of Impruneta, just 11 km outside of downtown Florence. http://www.it.windowsonitaly.com/property/villalapietrina-woi
