Agenda

 

Rebel Human retreats are known for the transformation they spark. The curated day program is built to bring about a new psychological and physiological state so the seeds planted will take root and grow, nourishing a new way of being in the world. True reimagining takes some work. While you will have time on this retreat for floating in the pool and paddle boarding on the lake, you will also be guided through meditation, yogic practices, and exploration exercises that pierce the veneer of performative wellness, and lead to lasting change.

 

Our private garden on the lake will offer the opportunity for us to slow down and enjoy the creative process of reimagining what our life can feel like with women, with friends, in a grounded, healing space. Healing happens through deep self work on your own, but also through community, shared experiences, deep bonding, and sharing our wounds. The word imagine originates from the Latin imaginare, meaning “to form an image of, represent.” We will use neurocoaching, yogic practices, and art therapy to embody our reimaginings, taking the brave and bold step that follows our questioning. 

 

On this retreat YOU get to decide what needs to be reimagined. This isn’t a one-size-fits-all journey and even your teacher can’t tell you exactly what needs to be addressed. On this retreat you will learn the tools to carefully discern what needs a shift. These tools will allow you to build deep awareness, connection to your inner wisdom, and intuition, so you can make choices from a place of equanimity. These are powerful tools to take with you into your life after the retreat.

 

Reimagining will be aided by expert guidance and a carefully developed program that integrates yogic practices—pranayama, mantra, chanting, Yin Yoga—with sound healing, meditation, neurocoaching, personal development, exploration exercises, and visualization. 

 

You will be supported in these practices by your teacher, but also by participating in a “screen cleanse.” You will be given the permission to take a full break from texting, emailing, online shopping, and social media so you can experience yourself and the world around you without these distractions.

 

The retreat is limited to 25 women. This small-group setting allows us to cultivate a culture where we feel safe and supported to connect and share. It also allows for personalized attention from your teachers, Jenny Arrington and Tait Medina, Ph.D. 

 

During this day retreat we intend for you to have the space, time, and guidance to feel excited about your path and have a clear plan for your next steps.  You will feel held and supported, while having some downtime to journal, think, and be quiet, or commune and connect with your fellow Rebel Humans.

 

This retreat is open to all levels. You do not need experience in meditation or in yoga to benefit. Our unique and personalized programming (which includes a preparatory call) allows us to meet the needs of beginning and advanced practitioners alike.​​​​
