Shakti Retreat: Awakening Your Inner Light
Fall is a season of transition, an invitation to begin a seasonal journey inward to the center of our being where we can experience a sense of flow, energy, and clarity. This quality of awakened vitality expressed as a passion and joy for life is our theme: the energy of the Shakti Retreat.
Shakti is the dynamic energy of creation. It is the cosmic lifeforce that pulses and moves through each of us, radiating outward as a grounded state of vitality. Shakti connects each of us to our essence, dancing her way through the waves of life, connecting us all to our core being and to one another. This weekend retreat invites you to connect with yourself through the awakening of Shakti—the Divine Mother of creation, the energy that brings ideas into form and brings you home to yourself.
The Shakti fall retreat is all about nurturing your vital energy.
You will be nourished by nature, community, alone time, and seasonal, organic, vegetarian meals prepared by our hosts at the ARC Retreat Center.
You’ll have opportunities to participate in guided practices including gentle yoga, meditation, and group activities designed to gently foster the flame within, moving you into a more profound connection with yourself and the radiant light within.
Come as you are, ready to restore, explore, and awaken.
Leave refreshed, rejuvenated, and connected to your creative life force energy.
Detailed schedule to follow.
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 swag bag of all swag bags!
You’ll be welcomed by the autumn colors of trees surrounding the lodge. The retreat opens with a powerful grounding ceremony, inviting you to transition out of “busy” into “being.”
In the next two days, you will have opportunities to participate in morning and evening movement (vinyasa, hatha, yin, restorative yoga) and meditation practices, experiential workshops, creative expression, and inspirational dialogues. These are all optional and available to support your process.
You will receive nourishing meals prepared lovingly by our hosts at the ARC Retreat Center.
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 the expansive wooded grounds and walking trails where you can take in the beautiful fall colors, or to simply rest by the fireplace in the lodge, which is reserved exclusively for our retreat group.
All is welcome. All is okay. It is at your discretion how you would like to use your 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.
This year, we are very excited to offer our retreat at the beautiful ARC Retreat Community, just an hour’s drive north of Minneapolis in Stanchfield, MN. Our group will have an entire lodge space dedicated to our retreat weekend. Our weekend home rests on 90 acres of private woodlands and wetlands within a pine forest where you’ll find walking trails, wildlife, and a labyrinth for walking meditation.
We have 10 single rooms available, each with a bed, desk, and private sink. We also have 3 double rooms for shared occupancy. All rooms are private with shared bathrooms,
The lodge itself offers us a meditation room, library, two fireplaces, screened in porch, and a loft area where which will be dedicated to yoga and workshops throughout the weekend. Meals are provided by the ARC Retreat Community and prepared with fresh, natural vegetarian ingredients. Dietary restrictions can easily be accommodated.
The space itself allows for gathering in community, resting in solitude, connecting with nature, and everything in between!
