Connecting Mind, Body, and Soul
9:45 am – Registration
(Meet promptly at the SpiritQuest Retreat Center.)
10:00-12:00 Learning to connect with Self, Others, and the Context
This session at the SpiritQuest Retreat Center will focus specifically on insights as how to carry yourself in such a way to be congruent in all that you say and do. Delve into your inner self and begin to effectively process your emotions in healthy way and gain perspective on where you are currently. Learn the Stances originating from Virginia Satir (Grandmother of Neurolinguistic Programming): Irrelevance, Super Reasonable, Blaming, Placating, and Congruence.
2:00-4:00 Aligning with Right Action (Outside)
Go out in the Red Rocks of Sedona where you will feel grounded and connected to the Earth. Dive into taking the right steps to become more “accountable” in your life. Questions arise such as, “What did I do wrong” “How does it impact others” “What are the consequences.” This session will involve discussion and sharing.
The 4 Yearnings: Freedom, Love, Creativity, Adventure
10:00-12:00 The Well of Wisdom
The “Well of Wisdom” is to learn self-care and positive intention. This session focuses on how to achieve freedom through choices where we respond rather than react. Creativity is achieved by being a generator. Learn to influence your environment rather than being influenced. Adventure is about learning to take risks to grow and expand. Love is a well-spring that we continually fill in order to love ourselves and give to others.
2:00-4:00 Stress Management (Outside)
Learn the power of letting go while out on the amazing red rocks of Sedona. Center and balance yourself with the power of Meditation and stress relief techniques. Learn not to neglect yourself, your feelings, or the feelings of other. This session will provide tools for re-framing and releasing the “shadow sides” of yourself.
Building a Culture of Appreciation
10:00-12:00 Appreciation by Way of Empathy, Compassion, and Honoring (Inside)
This session guides you within to create your clear intention, promoting and holding peace and love foremost in your mind. Release your energy that has accumulated and become stagnant, this exercise is an excellent way of releasing and mobilizing that energy, clearing and cleaning that space. Replace resentments with appreciations. Learn the attitude of gratitude. What a great way to leave Sedona!
**In the afternoon participants will have free time to explore Sedona on their own or have some space to schedule optional one-to-one intensives.
