Program Description

What does it really mean to live in connection? It’s the state where we understand that our truest and core selves have all the intuition, vision, and capacity for us to be who we were born to be.

Alanis Morissette and friends invite you to take a deep dive into holistic healing in this transformative 3-day experience. Explore your thoughts, values, needs, wants, mission, dark and light shadows, feelings, boundaries, energy levels, and relationships with self, god, and others.

Through group and small-group exercises, explore the stones that are ready to be turned over—in yourself, your relationship with spirit, and in your relationships with others. Practice an integration of thought work, developmental and brain awareness, trauma recovery, self-care practices, maturation work, systems theory work, and more.

During this week-end of inquiry and connection, you will:

  • Explore art, writing, and movement
  • Practice meditation and inquiry
  • Approach wholeness from multiple angles
  • Create rituals and a lifestyle that allow your essential self to be in the driver’s seat.

This workshop is an experience that is both top-down (mindfulness, thought, brain-into-body) and bottom-up (somatic work, proprioceptive work, and re-embodiment work).
