Yollotl Cuicatl invites you to join them this Fall for a weekend virtual retreat titled:
Restorative Care for Therapists
May 21st & 22nd 2021
This will be an experiential retreat that will include Ritual and Ceremony, Journaling, Mindfulness practices, expressive arts and deep reflection. We will immerse ourselves in a nurturing experience with fellow mental health practitioners, exploring daily practices that support our bodies, hearts and minds towards feeling grounded and connected to our roots. Collectively exploring and learning from each other, in a mutually supportive environment. Decolonizing and deconstructing old paradigms and narratives that keep us from tapping into our intuition and medicine within.
What you will gain from this retreat:
Practical tools to implement for everyday self-care
Learn ways of connecting to your ancestral roots
Reflective opportunities for personal and professional growth
A network of like-minded colleagues to build community with
