Anandamaya Retreat: Coming Home to Yourself

Fall is a season to come home to ourselves—to the center of our being where we can experience a sense of ease, flow, and clarity. This is the quality of inner peace, and it’s also our theme for the weekend: the Anandamaya Retreat. 

Anadamaya translates to mean, “consisting of bliss,” or a steady and easeful state of being.  It’s also an element of our energetic anatomy. This weekend retreat invites you to connect with yourself through the koshas, the energetic sheaths of our body and open to the sweetness of life.

You will be nourished by nature, community, alone time, and hand-crafted meals prepared by Ayurvedic Chef and Culinary Herbalist, Betsy Nelson…and you’ll have the option to learn the Yoga of Cooking through participation in the creation of meals! 

You’ll have opportunities to participate in guided practices including gentle yoga, meditation, and group activities designed to unveil each of the koshas, moving you into a more profound connection with yourself. 

Come as you are.

Leave refreshed, rejuvenated, and grounded in who you are. 

 This retreat is co-hosted by Dr. Patty Hlava of AwakenPeace Healing and Jessica Hoch of Moxie Malas

The Experience

Your weekend begins with receiving a beautiful bag of nurturing gifts, giving you everything you need to support you on this weekend home to yourself. 

The retreat opens with a powerful welcoming and grounding ceremony, inviting you to transition out of “busy” into “being.”   

In the next two days, you will receive nourishing meals prepared lovingly and with deep intention by Ayurvedic Chef and Culinary Herbalist, Betsy Nelson. In addition, you will have the option to learn The Yoga of Cooking through participating in the preparation of these health-promoting and delicious foods designed to support the body and delight the taste buds! 

There will be guided meditations and movement sessions (vinyasa, yin, restorative yoga) offered throughout the weekend. These are all optional and available to support your process. 

Throughout the weekend, there will be opportunities to connect with others in community, as well as time to be alone in your own reflective space. You will have plenty of downtime to explore on your own with or simply rest in a private 6,000 square foot lake home on the shores of Lake Mille Lacs, where you can take in the beautiful fall colors.

All is welcome. All is okay. It is at your discretion how you would like to use this time.

Patty & Jessica will be available for one-on-one supportive dialogues to help process experiences as they arise for you. 

The retreat closes Sunday with a closing ceremony and nourishing lunch to ground your experience into the heart and carry it back with you into the world.
