FLUID BLISS 

If you're ready to glide into healing hot springs, bliss into guided relaxation and re-enchant your life, join Elaine Oyang + Lauren Ziegler for a weekend of deep rejuvination

October 4-6, 2019

Do you REALLY want to sink into yourself and reconect with what matters most

Sensing the yearning to deepen your practice?  

Need to replenish your energy and remember what it feels like to be at peace?

It's the hour of twighlight and the last rays of light are sparkling in the pools. Spellbound by the beauty, you find yourself melting, held by the silky, undulating water. Surrounded by quiet, you can finally rest.

Feeling open and content, you sense it's the perfect sanctuary to retreat alone and write down your thoughts or have a life-altering conversation.  

Looking around, you smile as you recall the day. Explanations melting into wispy steams and sighs, time dissolving, muscles unwinding ... as the medicinal waters permeate your body. 

Like swirling waters, energies of curiosity awakened inside while you roamed the the enchanting ambiance of the land. You recall a wild herd of ponies, and a sense of play. The treasures of the land have awakened a spiritful charm within.
