Program Description

You’re invited to take an intentional midsummer pause. Following the new moon in Cancer, this weekend is for you to remember who you are, why you are here, and all that you are grateful for.

Led by Dana Damara—yogi, mother, mystic, and advocate for women everywhere—this workshop offers a chance to immerse yourself in the power of sacred ritual, asana, pranayama (breathwork), chanting, meditation, and yoga nidra as you enjoy all the amenities 1440 has to offer. During this divinely inspired retreat, you will:

  • Unite all the pieces of yourself that often feel strewn about
  • Nourish and rejuvenate your body
  • Clear and center your mind
  • Reignite your connection to source
  • Reestablish a sense of strength and fortitude.

Whether you come alone or with loved ones, you are sure to return to your daily rhythm with a sense of ease, grace, inspiration, and deep gratitude for the life you’re living.
