In this weekend retreat, you will discover tools that will create profound changes in how you experience yourself and live your life.

This work is an amazing embodied process to deepen your personal growth. For therapists and healers, it will add to your understanding of somatic practices. For persons in long-term recovery, it goes to the heart of the deeper issues that may have driven addiction in the first place.

Join us for a program that includes individual exploration and group work, facilitated by some of our most seasoned faculty members.

  • Learn five main personality types and how they are visibly expressed in the body.

  • Learn how blocked energy flow impacts your physical health, emotional well-being, and spiritual expression.

  • Develop greater emotional and relational intelligence.

  • Discover a path that puts you squarely in charge of creating your life.

  • Get a felt sense of who you are at your very best.

“In the end we only regret the chances we didn’t take.” – Lewis Carroll

Stop waiting for something to be different. Break free of predictable ways of being, thinking and feeling. Open to the abundance that is beyond your comfort zone. Face the fears and misconceptions that keep you from following your hearts longing and from living a more satisfying and authentic life.  

Together we will build a supportive group container in which to take emotional risks and move held and defended energy with Core Energetics body-centered techniques. The experiences and exercises will help you tap into deeper layers of feeling and to the life force that is trapped behind the emotional and physical blocks in your body. This workshop will enhance your sense of empowerment, presence and awareness and foster deep connection between group members. Come explore the aliveness that is beyond your comfort zone and receive the support you need to open your heart, live more authentically and say YES to your heart’s longing.

There will be space in this program to enjoy all that Kripalu has to offer in the Beautiful Berkshire mountains: 
Daily Yoga Classes; Hiking trails; Lakeside Beach; Meditation: Massage and Spa Services; Sumptuous Organic Food.
