“Deep in our bodies, where our truth burns the brightest, we know we cannot be free, we cannot be of service, we cannot truly come alive if we aren’t consciously connected to our Soul.”
Soul Saturation is an intimate, dynamic, and radically real experience of our soul within a group setting. While most religions, new age and modern spiritual practices focus on spirit, emphasizing the importance of transcendence, enlightenment and Oneness, this retreat focuses on soul and celebrates the importance of immanence, embodiment and our distinct divine identity. Using fiery meditation, meaningful ritual, intuitive journaling, provocative dialogue, and conscious movement we will allow our Souls to guide us towards authentic experiences and expressions of life and love. After all, when you saturate in your Soul, you don’t just believe, you know, in every cell of your magnificent body that you are the one you’ve been looking for all along.
Please bring a journal, an object for the altar, an open mind and a sense of humor.
