4 Elements Retreat

Connect with Nature. Connect with Self.

We live in a technologically powered society which provides immense opportunity for communication, innovation and progress. But such a level of techno-saturation takes a serious toll on our organic and spiritual bodies. Through our wellness retreats, you can reclaim your life and gain the necessary tools you need to maintain balance, health and equanimity. Our retreats are a beautiful fusion of nature excursions, meditation, body work, yoga, Tai Chi, clean eating, group connectivity, private mentoring and personal growth. These retreats are intended to remove the obstacle of technology and regular life “busyness”, challenge the physical body, and promote profound personal growth.

You’ve imagined yourself on the mountain trail, unplugged from the grid, but you’ve never known how to get there. You’ve longed for a deeper sense of purpose, a more enriching spiritual life, a stronger sense of Self, but you haven’t known where to start. You’ve struggled to set goals and maintain healthy relationships and haven’t known what else to try. These retreats were designed for you, and are suited for the beginner and the more-experienced. So if you’re new to the outdoors, meditation or yoga, or you’re looking for more opportunities to deepen your practice, these retreats are the next step. Now you have no excuses.

Let us be your guides.
