You are invited to join Jennifer Kreatsoulas and Kanjana Hartshorne at the scenic and peaceful Himalayan Institute in the Poconos September 14 – 16, 2018 for The 11 Elements: A Body Compassion Project Retreat, where you will rebuild healthy and compassionate connections with your true self – body, heart, and soul.
Every human body is made up of 11 core elements that are essential for survival. This means that everyone was born from and survives on the same set of elements that are natural to this earth. How beautiful is that?
We believe being made from the same life-giving materials unites us all in meaningful ways that can easily be overlooked in our fast-paced society. These 11 elements are also a vital reminder that our bodies are powerful beyond measure, no matter their size or shape.
In a world that thrives on unrealistic beauty ideals and external validation, we can lose our connection with ourselves and feel discontent with our bodies. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to teach simple yet powerful ways to: practice compassion and connection with your body; experience more peace and beauty in the unscripted chaos of life; develop mindfulness skills; and cultivate more gratitude for the 11 elements that unite us and the true self that makes you and your body unique.
This retreat is appropriate for women who want to explore how to feel more confident and content in their bodies. Whether you struggle with body image because of your past, weight, race, size, ability, aging, illness, or more, we invite you to join us. No yoga experience is necessary.
