In August, Alissa Kloet, along with the help from yoga instructor, Linda Theiu and artist extraordinaire, Judith Brannen, hosted our very first Anchorage Retreat, a creative escape.
We are excited to share that we are offering another retreat in the winter of 2018 from February 8-11! The retreat is a space for women to come together, slow down, and become the sacred observer. It is a time to disconnect from the everyday and begin again to pay attention. Through mindful exercises, active participation, and self reflection, we hope we provide you with the space to dig in, attend, and connect with your self, surroundings and others. We intend this retreat to be a time to anchor your self and rediscover the joy of observation. I feel like we succeeded at this in August; I felt attended to, I felt like I finally slowed down and was able to take that breath that I have been waiting to take for what feels like forever. I also felt like the weekend gave me renewed energy to jump back into my busiest work season.
The goal is to enable you to feel this way too. Winter is a time for slowing down, for taking the time to regroup and refocus. This next retreat will take place by a cozy fire, snuggled in with hot drinks and warm blankets, with even more opportunity to tune into your creative practice through multiple yoga session offerings, story time by the fire, and a meditative sunrise walk, along with the regular workshops. If you are interested in attending, or want to see the itinerary in full, please visit keephouse.ca/workshops for all of the information and the registration form. If you register and deposit before Christmas, you will receive a discount of $100!!
Here are some images from the August retreat that I hope leave you with wanting to attend the next one 😉 A great big thank you to Judith Brannen for hosting the watercolour workshop, and to Linda Thieu for teaching the best yoga class I’ve ever been to!
