Mamaste Retreat for Moms ~ Hosted by Amarylis : Movement, Nourishment,Empowerment


  • Banks, Or, 97106 19892 Northwest Sellers Road Banks, OR, 97106 United States (map)

It's time for you, dearest mom. Time to retreat away in the woods for quiet, community, connection to body and mind, and clarity. Sink into deep space and time as you unwind from the typical day-to-day. Unravel the places you hold so tight and expand into your own personal light.

Join Amarylis and the other amazing mamas on this overnight retreat! Our stay is only 40 minutes from downtown Portland, but it feels as though you're a 1,000 miles away. You'll be tucked away on five pristine acres in Banks, OR.

Our gracious and loving site host, Ruthanne, will cook up some hearty meals, warm beverages for chilly mornings and evenings, and all kinds of goodness will be bubbling on the stove. There will be laughter, deep-dives, blankets in the crisp, clean air, slippers, movement, soaking in the hot tub, or chilling by the fire.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Do as much or as little as you desire. There will be scheduled downtime to nap, walk, read, journal, cloud gaze, snack, sip tea or connect with other wonderful women. However, if there's a yoga class or workshop scheduled and you're relishing your alone time, there's no pressure to join! You do you. There are so many nooks and crannies on the property to sink down and have time for YOU when you're wanting to take that alone time. Our group will be the only ones on the property during your stay.

There will be daily hatha yoga classes aimed to open up the heart and get you connected into your body as you also enliven your body with breath. We'll have two workshops where I'll guide you through grounding and desire (1st and 2nd chakras). How do these relate to our daily lives as mothers and why do they matter? How do we know when things are way out of balance and what can we do to come back to center? You'll have reflective work to process on your own and tips on how to incorporate what you've learned, discovered, intuited.

I've also invited Nicole Alcyon from Triniti Healing to lead you through her unique hypno-chakra sound bath. These combine hypnotherapy, chakra balancing, and sound healing from her 9 singing crystal bowls. Her singing crystal bowls assist to amplify the effect of the meditation. They are specially designed to correlate to the 7 chakras, and therefore, by playing them throughout the sound bath, you receive a boost of chakra cleansing and energy balancing in addition to the healing. And it's super relaxing and you rest and receive the vibes!!
