Awaken Your Peaceful Warrior

The Sacred journey on the mountain September 7, 8, 9th

Fear is nothing more than an obstacle that stands in the way of progress. In overcoming our fears, we can move forward, stronger and wiser, to awaken your peaceful warrior.

Awaken Your Peaceful Warrior Kootaney Retreat Sept 2018

This empowering, inspiring mindfulness retreat weekend takes place in the wilderness of the Valhalla mountain of beautiful British Columbia. Far from the comforts of home,  this may invoke some challenges and fears of the unknown. When we move into nature in a Sacred way we tune into the consciousness of this invisible existence. It is through overcoming our fears we can tune into trust and the guidance of something greater than we are. If you are ready to move through limitations, tapping into your courage, building confidence in a supportive container, we invite you to join us to Awaken Your Peaceful Warrior.

The warrior walks mindfully, with respect, and connects with all that is from the heart. In turn, the energy reflects a feeling of oneness. Learn how to tap into the union of harmony to all that surrounds you: the plants, animals, trees, and all life seen and unseen during this silent, mountain retreat.
