Root Down, Rise Up: Guatemala Retreat for realignment, reconnection, and revitalization
Root Down, Rise Up was created by Catherine and Jeannette to with the intention of holding a safe space for guests to open up their hearts and see what rises. As humans, we can easily slip into a routine that is comfortable, but doesn’t truly serve us. Our goal is to help you peel away layers of doubt and insecurity that have built up over the years, re-align with the true essence of your being, and cultivate new habits to carry home with you. Traveling to a different country, exploring deeper parts of yourself, and connecting with beautiful strangers can be nerve-wracking, but only from the edge of your comfort zone can the view of infinite possibilities be seen.
The body is an extension of this planet, and connecting with all of the elements plays a vital role in our well-being. Ground down into your body and find stability in the earth through immersion in nature, daily yoga, and nourishing food. Learn to gracefully release emotional blocks and flow like water through love. Tapping into the air element, the breath, you’ll begin to re-write the story you’ve created in your mind that has hindered you from sharing your purest gifts with the world. We will begin to communicate openly and honestly in a supported space. The deeper relationship you build with yourself, the deeper relationships you can form with others. With the fire element, you’ll transform, express, and tap into the passion that life imbues in your soul. As we combine these elements, we tap into an intuitive space, empowered by the environment, to integrate our unique selves into the world.
Invest in yourself so that you can discover the confidence of creating a rippling effect as a conscious change maker in your family, community and a more nourishing world. Join us in this transformational week if you're ready to tune into what you truly want to create in this life, uncover limiting beliefs and blocks that hold you back from being your most authentic self, loosen up, LAUGH, create new connections, explore a different culture, learn how to fuel your body in a way that is nourishing for your body, and step back into presence.
