GAMBIER ISLAND, BC, JUNE 20TH-25TH, 2022
WITH MARIE-SOLEIL, CRISTINA & IRENE
“Nature is one of our most influential teachers. It teaches us simplicity, flow, how to work in co-creation and a bridge to embody ourselves. It is a connection point to ourselves and others.”
A JOURNEY TOWARDS RESOURCING
5 day soul nourishing retreat on Gambier Island
Come & immerse yourself in nature to nurture your body, mind, heart, soul. Be guided by loving earth medicine women to help you reconnect with your inner resources, your inner wisdom & get filled up by the connection of other women in a sacred space. When out of coherence, hence we feel disconnected from our purpose, from our joy & from Spirit.
There is a part of us that has the knowledge. The deep knowingness on how to replenish, how to reconnect, how to tap into our intuition, magic & purpose. It takes time & practice to go within, and sometimes we need to take ourself out of our normal environment to reconnect with our inner wisdom. Time spend in Nature, receiving the teachings and healing of ancient wisdom can be very powerful and nurturing; a path towards resourcing.
By reconnecting with nature we reconnect with ourselves. By recognizing the abundant energy of the earth, we recognize our own inner abundance.
This retreat is for you if:
You are feeling burned out and are craving nature time to replenish.
You are a seeker of the sacred.
You believe in the healing powers of nature.
You are seeking to connect with other like minded women.
You want to disconnect to connect!

Meet The Team
She is the founder of Body Elements which offers healing therapies, yoga, workshops and retreats. Through the studies of healing therapies, bodywork, yoga and my own experience of movement, breath, meditation.
I came to understand that there is a higher intelligence that resides within all of us and needs to be rediscovered. Her healing approach & teachings is inspired by nature and this higher intelligence that resides within all of life. Which inspires her through the depth of her work; in the result one will find a state of inner calm and feel more connected within themselves.
Body Elements aim to bring people to touch that inner intelligence within themselves, that hidden potential that is just awaiting to become alive.
Her wish, amongst all that she offers, is to assist others in realizing their own potential as human beings; by sharing knowledge on how to bring more awareness into daily choices, and how to open up to opportunities to live life to its full potential in balance, harmony and joy.
Just like the elements that surround us; mother earth and all its creations: the Ocean, the stars, moon, birds everything in its form holds life in its contracted form, the power of creation exists within all of us. Once that connection is made the light of our inner power ignites.
