Dave’s partner, Amy, is leading three 5 day/5 night all inclusive retreats for women this summer. Dave will be teaching the organic gardening portion. It’s for any woman seeking a profound shift in her life. The theme is how to Think, Feel & Live Healthier.
How To Become A Healthier Person
Start by learning what healthy food is and how to grow it under the guidance of Dave, one of Vermont’s most experienced and very popular organic farmers.
Watch and learn as local Chefs prepare delicious organic meals.
Experience the benefits of daily raw, organic fruit and vegetable juices.
Feel the health benefits of an organic raw food meal.
How to Stay Healthy Both Physically and Emotionally
Learn about healing with a variety of wellness tools: herbs, aromatherapy, Ayurveda, acupuncture, healing touch, energy work, yoga, hiking, and swimming.
Develop a daily mindfulness and meditation practice. Learn how to calmly respond rather than react.
Some of the benefits of mindfulness and meditation are: reduces stress, helps you know yourself better, improves comprehension, lowers depression, improves emotional processing, and improves sleep.
How to Find And Express Your Authentic Self
Experience how to find and relate to others from the real you through life coaching exercises during the retreat.
Learn ways to create safe, non-judgmental spaces for others so that honest communication can result.
Participate in the extraordinary opportunity provided by horses to experience your authentic self. Horses look for authenticity and leadership from others including humans. They have the ability to sense both the energy and intent of others. They can detect a person’s underlying feelings and emotions and respond accordingly. There is much that we can learn about ourselves from horses.
In horse world, the one who moves the other’s feet is the leader. When you lead a horse, the true leader is the one in front. If the horse leads you, this suggests that they don’t see you as the leader. Chances are that humans are picking up on the same energy. This is valuable feedback that helps us learn why the horse doesn’t see us as a leader and what we can do to change that view of us.
We offer 3 retreat programs this summer which run Sunday through Friday. July 19–24, August 16-21, and September 13-18. Space is limited to 6 people in each program.
