September 9 @ 12:00 am - September 13 @ 12:00 am


Nourishing the Shen: Restore your Nervous System
September 9-13, 2021

Chinese medicine sees the Shen (spirit/heart/mind/soul) as an integral part of health – one of the three ‘treasures’ which are essential human qualities.

Together we will learn to nourish our Shen.

In this retreat, we are going to practice a multitude of modalities for nourishing our Shen including:

  • Traditional Chinese Shen nourishing herbs & Western nervines
  • Nourishing nutrient-dense whole foods for balancing mood & calming inflammation
  • Brain Reintegration Program techniques & practices
  • Centering techniques to redirect reactive patterning & reset the Shen
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Gong bath
  • Acupuncture
  • Qi gong
