New moon ritual with restorative yoga and yoga nidra to set new intentions


Nighttime is a time to turn towards stillness. In this stillness, we are closest to our truest essence. Add to this the powerful New Moon, which is void of light in the night sky. Out of this void and emptiness, all is birthed into Life. This is a great time to plant seeds of intentions, at the start of a new lunar cycle.

We begin the session with a ritual to cleanse our space and honour the directions and elements. We then move into a space of meditative self-inquiry, related to the New Moon in Pisces to plant our seeds of intentions for the month. This will be followed by a deep Yoga Nidra practice.

    Nature wellness retreat with hike, dogwood tincture, fire ceremony, meditation at ThinkSpot, Lowville, Burlington


    Spend an afternoon connecting with nature in beautiful Lowville, Burlington. This magical place, surrounded by forests and with the stream flowing through, offers deep healing and nourishment.

    We will be working with the plant, Dogwood. Once you connect with the essence of this plant, you’ll notice it everywhere. This plant is associated with loyalty, secrets and offers us protection. It helps with pain relief, sleep problems, menstrual cramps, and more.

    We gather Dogwood on our nature walk, sit around a fire and connect with a sacred tea, and make a Dogwood tincture.
