What to expect
This powerful weekend focuses on connecting to yourself, to others and to nature through understanding the four elements: fire, earth, water, air. The elements are relevant to our day-to-day living, to our relationship with ourselves, in relating to others, and connecting to the world around us.
Understanding the elements can guide your life to keep coming back into balance and to live from a place of inner strength, of allowing, of kindness and love.
Many opportunities for personal growth and transformation await you on this weekend. You will leave with practical tools to implement as needed in your daily life, which will assist a continued deepening, understanding and connection to life.
