Returning Inward: A Nurturing Retreat with Lily Dougher


We will begin our time together with a grounding meditation, clearing energy and connecting home to yourself. After meditation, Lily will guide you through a healing intuitive flow yoga, and then slowing things down with a therapeutic Yin like practice that is Iyengar and Katonah yoga influenced. This practice will bring you more home to yourself, opening up the potential of the future, offering gratitude for the memories of the past and being content in your center. During Yin Yoga, Becky will offer healing reiki energy and essential oils to open up space for your intentions to settle in. 

Following Yoga, you will have time for tea, and to relax or explore the beautiful grounds of the Farm.

We will meet back up for a nourishing catered organic and vegetarian lunch. Followed by a small walk or journal and collect rocks.

After lunch we will get the creative and intuitive energies flowing. With two rocks, you will paint each rock in way that represents the energy you are giving to it. One rock represents what you're letting go of, one represents the energy you are calling in. 

Next, you will continue your journey home to yourself as Becky leads you through one hour of Yoga Nidra. You will travel to the sanctuary that lives deep inside yourself. Yoga Nidra is a deep, guided meditation and visualization that opens your heart to call in your deepest desires. Yoga Nidra means "sleep with trace awareness". It often brings you deep physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. 

After you have emerged from the bliss of Yoga Nidra, Lily will lead you home through a Despacho Ceremony by a warm fire. The Despacho is a gift to spirit. It is a ritual of energetic exchange for healing, re-establishing right relationship and protection. You will release the rock that carries your old energy into the fire and you will wrap up the rock with the energy you are calling in with other offerings. This beautiful ceremony will end with a grounding meditation by Becky. We invite to return inward and come home to yourself. 

Please enjoy herbal tea and fruit throughout the day.
