About the event

The beginning is the most important part of the work. - Plato

Winter is a season for slowing down, grounding, going inwards. Just like the plants take a big long rest, we too need to take rest, recharge and reset. Give yourself (or your loved one) the gift of awareness. It's a chance to slow down, go inwards, and breathe. Just breathe. 

The biggest question I get from people is about how to set up an everyday practice that's sustainable. "How do I create a routine?" Where do I start? What do I actually do?

 Join me, Kat McLean, as I guide you through a day of intentional breath, movement, and mindfulness designed to help you practice presence. You'll have the opportunity to learn and get comfortable with adopting several mindfulness techniques that draw on sensory experiences. These are tools that I use daily to help keep me grounded, present and moving forward when life gets sticky. 

Not only will you get multiple opportunities to practice, but we'll discuss how to set up your own practice, AND, I'll provide you with a mini guide book of your own to help keep you accountable. 

The beautiful space at the Rising Moon Studio is our setting for cultivating awareness and connection - within ourselves, nature, and our retreat community. This stunning acreage property is just 5 minutes off the Henday and Whitemud extension and boasts a serene backdrop for tuning out the distractions of the outside world so you can tune in to your inner awareness. Enjoy the grounds, take a dip in the hottub, cold plunge, or relax in the wood burning sauna. Leave your worries behind and fill up your cup with goodness for body, mind and soul.

Feedback from JANUARY 2023 retreat:

“You need this in your life. Kat’s teachings are gentle, relaxed, inclusive and also filled with humor. I am a past, present and forever future student."

“Honestly, this whole day was perfection. Yoga was gentle & invigorating. Mindfulness tips were useful and easy to integrate in my life. Lunch & snacks were exceptional. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and am so happy I did this. Looking forward to the next time I can make this happen for myself.”

"This was much needed. My monkey mind is at peace. My body is nourished, I feel love right in every cell of my body. My soul is connected with the universe. I am in peace. I am safe. Universe is my home. I feel blessed to share this experience with you. Thank you."
