In addition to this event, you can enjoy all of the daily activities that Woodside offers, see a sample retreat schedule.
What if you could heal suffering and thrive by mending your separation from the natural world? By combining the ancient practices of mindfulness, nature therapy, and the latest findings in neuroscience, this nature-based retreat at Canyon Ranch Woodside guides you to awaken embodiment, release limiting beliefs, and discover powerful yet ancient daily practices.
Film director, mindfulness teacher, and nature therapy guide Sylvie Rokab welcomes you on Friday night for a special screening of her 27-award-winning film Love Thy Nature – narrated by Liam Neeson – and followed by a Q&A. Throughout this wellness weekend, Sylvie takes you through one of the most inspiring revelations of our times. You'll learn how Western science is finally uncovering what Indigenous and Wisdom Traditions have been expressing for millennia: every cell of our bodies, every thought in our brain, and every beat of our heart are all extensions of this natural living field that cradles our spirit.
By learning to commune with this field, you can access the wisdom, love, wonder, soul, creativity, joy, and freedom that can only be found in a conscious relationship with nature.
Join us for this special weekend retreat and open your heart to yourself, your loved ones, and all existence while surrounded by the Redwood Forest in Northern California.
