Retreat at the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, PA


Turning leaves and planting seeds an Eka Retreat

Fall is lovely time for letting go and planting fresh intentions. As the leaves turn and change color so might our thoughts. Thoughts become action and action begets outcome. During this retreat we will ritually burn what we are ready to turn over, study and explore new practices. We will leave with a seed full of intention and plant it in the ground when we arrive home. As we rest and move inward during winter these intentions will ruminate and prepare to enter the world in the burst of growth which is Spring.

Join the community of Eka on a 3 day, 2 night retreat to the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, PA.

Note: all activities and sessions are optional. Feel free to make this your own. Nap, spend time in nature, read, journal, drink tea . . .let the spirit move you.
