The Dream Weaver Retreat is rooted in a pure desire to play with ones own Creative Genius.
After months of winter, I find that I am always eager to experience new and exciting endeavors in the spring.
So we have created a retreat based on Crafting, Foraging, Socializing, Art and Healthy Vegan Meals.

The Dream Weaver Retreat will include:

**Daily Yin Yoga

Bring your Yoga mat, (or don’t, I’ve got extras) and get ready to explore your body in a whole new way.
Instead of focusing on muscles, movement and strength, we will be exploring the Healing potential of stillness, opening, softening, releasing and allowing.

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time.

Easing into our bodies and exploring hidden tensions,
We create space for Opening, and Movement.

Yin encourages Stillness, Awareness and Inner Truth.
Allowing the body to relax and find its place within the pose, we invite expansion and encourage mind/body communication.

Yin Philosophy:
*Find your edge within each pose (Only go as far as what feels right for you in that moment)
*Make the commitment to stay in the pose (Once you have found your place within the pose, make the commitment to stay for the suggested length of time.)
*Be still and present (Yin Yoga is not a passive yoga, it is a practice that requires mind/body connection. Although we make the commitment to be still, we are Always listening to our bodies and are willing to adjust if need be)

“Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality”
-Michael Sexton

**Daily Crafting and foraging

Ready set… Forage!
Enjoy a group exploration through the Sierra Nevada hills.
Join us as we search for vines, twigs, branches, leaves, rocks and a variety of other natural crafting supplies.
With these supplies we will be creating Dream Catchers and Baskets.
We will also be utilizing a variety of modern supplies in order to create the Tree of Life.
Do you enjoy Crafting? Then you will love this opportunity to craft and create.
The Dream Weaver Retreat will be setting up multiple crafting tables each day, we will also have guest speakers and demonstrators who will be sharing their knowledge and love of crafting!
Pull up a chair, gravitate toward the activity/Craft that you feel called to, and dive into a world of endless creative expression.

**Healthy Organic Vegan Meals

Let the flavors and benefits of Organic and Vegan food entice your senses!
Enjoy three delicious Vegan meals a day, as well as a variety of delicious vegan desserts!
After a winter of heavy foods, it always feels good to dedicate some time to easing off of the high fat, high calorie foods, and shifting into lighter and healthier meals.
The Dream Weaver Retreat offers a perfect balance of delicious, hot, and flavor filled foods, as well as, light, fresh and Organic Fruits, and Vegetables with each meal.
Wake up right on the river;
Sip your morning Tea or Coffee and listen to the sound of the roaring Yuba River as she flows through the sacred crevice within the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Take in the aromas, and allow your senses to be filled as we enjoy Candle Lit meals each day on the Yuba River!

**Personalized Henna Art

Mehndi or “Mehendi” is a form of body art from Ancient India, in which decorative designs are created on a person’s body, using a paste, created from the powdered dry leaves of the Henna Plant. The beauty of this Art speaks to the heart and impresses the eye.

Learn some of the History of Henna, ways to prepare it and enjoy its many uses.
