This is an all women retreat, creating a safe circle for sharing and healing.  We will cover all areas of women’s health from menstrual cycle to menopause and beyond using the food we eat, Qi gong exercise, and potent acupressure points.

At a cellular level, our bodies are constantly reproducing; new blood cells, skin cells, hair follicles, maintaining bone density, nail strength, and growth, so it is essential to keep our reproductive health, “Jing” in Chinese Medicine, flowing, vital and juicy.

☯️ In this simple, nurturing weekend, you can understand the clear connection between our emotions, our vitality, the food we choose and how it directly affects our health.

☯️ We will experience and nurture the feminine passionate energy within us, effortlessly improving health, bringing a balance between passionate fire and flowing water.

– insomnia,
– palpitations,
– loss of libido,
– painful heavy breasts and periods,
– weight gain around the middle,

Take time to develop and nurture a loving connection with your body and mind.
