Blind Seed HeartCamp: Solstice 2019 - An Inclusive Wellness Retreat

June 21 - June 24, 2019

Sara Elise and Tara Aura

This summer solstice, Brooklyn’s dynamic Blind Seed duo will create a magical, light filled retreat experience at Menla. As an inclusive, judgement-free space, HeartCamp builds an educational and empowering component into a restorative yoga retreat framework. Opportunities for play, rest and learning are customized for participants , who leave feeling recharged and relaxed— and overall, inspired to continue creating positive momentum in their lives.Since summer solstice marks the longest and most light-filled day of the year, this Solstice HeartCamp will focus on the theme of:"What Lights You Up"As we join in various workshops and rituals around this idea, we will consider what it means to find pleasure, deep satisfaction, and invest in your self care now so that you can begin activating the best version of your self this summer and beyond!For the ONE DAY commuter rate Saturday 6/22 please email our registration coordinator at registration@menla.org for more information.
