Do I have to participate in everything on the schedule?
You do not need to participate in everything; you can pace yourself so that it is the perfect amount of activity for you. We fully support you in doing as much or as little as is right for you in the moment. The schedule gives you a sense of the flow of each day.
What if I don’t have a conscious dance practice/yoga practice or don’t do art?
These modalities have been chosen to take you deeper spiritually. We believe that using, dance, yoga, art and meditation, we can reach higher levels of embodied consciousness. Each activity that will be shared during the retreat, will have multiple options for participation level. You get to decide how deep you want to go.
