WHERE DO WE COME FROM ? WHERE ARE WE NOW ? WHERE ARE WE GOING? Nourishing our inner nature is perfectly supported by a retreat in Mother nature and across 5 days we explore these BIG LIFE questions.. To bring this wisdom into embodied knowing we blend active and restorative Yoga with traditional wisdom teachings for a whole of life review. We explore where we have come from in the context of Chinese medical teachings. Understanding the influences of our inheritance gives us the keys to unlock our family patterns and bone deep coding. We introduce ways and practices to help us embrace our natural gifts, consciously manage our challenges and show up in our true Self. On this retreat you will get to know the influence of your constitutional patterns and how to manage you well-being through conscious rest and intensive nourishment.
WHY ? The Nourishing Roots teachings and practices are designed to help reset our natural capacity to find balance and rejuvenate at deep levels by increasing our ability to relax. They help us to access the Power of Yin - our feminine power which supports us to let go, yield, open and soften as a path to healing. Yin represents the physical substances of our life eg the bones, blood and body fluid relative to Yang which represents the energetic activities of the body eg movement, thinking and the functional power of the organs. When Yin is not well nourished, the relative excess of Yang makes us feel over stimulated and rest-less !! Patterns such as anxiety, irritability, insomnia, nervousness, over-heating, excessive mental activity all can result from a weakness of Yin energy. One solution is to simply nourish our Yin - in other words - nourish our roots !
WHO FOR ? This retreat is recommended for people who want to learn to deeply relax and for those who have been excessively stressed and/or cut off from their body by their over active busy lives and minds ! For those with extreme tension it is recommended that people support the retreat process with individual healing sessions to help clear and resolve deeply embodied stress-response patterning. For people in transition this retreat maps 7 steps to realignment.
In the Nourishing Our Roots journey we explore seven steps: Step 1 We look at Life as a journey emerging from the roots of our Source essence, Step 2 We look at how source essence is embodied in the deep Reservoirs, Step 3 we explore how to enliven our lives through activating Free-Flow, Step 4 We tune into how to build strength through full bodied Presence, Step 5 We look at ways to be grounded in the Earth Step 6 We examine how to nourish and Mother ourselves and our homes, Step 7 We contemplate how to Open Up let go to let come to be partners of the Universe.
Nourishing Our Roots is a path to healing - about letting go to let come. You will be guided into the enjoyment of opening to deep rest and finding how strength that emerges with softening, yielding and surrendering as a way of being.
TESTIMONIAL from 'Power of Yin' participant - now newly named 'Nourishing Our Roots'
"I met Cameron back in July 2017 as I was in a one of those beautifully challenging times in life … mid-life working out what I want … kids, the current relationship I was in, family relationships, the job that was zapping me and general life questions that come up for us all!
I had been on a journey of focused self-discovery specifically in the last few years on so many levels – emotional, mental, spiritual. So I felt very grateful and blessed. Then a recommendation from a friend, to see Cameron helped me catapult even further on my journey on a quicker and clearer track. Cameron’s 1 on 1 sessions were very moving for me each time and they consisted of talking, remedies, acupunture, tarot readings and more talking! I also attended her Power of Yin retreat and the You Beautiful You retreat . Both were so powerful for me, but very particularly the Power of Yin. I learnt and experienced so much and even more once I left the retreat.
Cameron’s conversations, energy, vibrancy and wisdom not only helped me work out these questions (and I will continue to do so) but also the tools to stand up, speak up, create my story and connection with self, others and the universe.I will continue to reach out to Cameron for her wonderful personality, energy, wisdom and support as I continue on my never-ending learning and growing journey. I would certainly recommend you to do so to."
