Festejo del Corazón – Celebration of the Heart

October 21, 2016 - October 28, 2016


Festejo del Corazón – Celebration of the Heart

With Lawrence Bell D.C. and Brendan Hill

October 21 – 28, 2016

Immerse into a week of decompression, de-stressing, revitalization, fun & adventure, and a unique body-mind advancement program.  Festejo del Corazon is a celebration retreat all things heart-y and soulful!

While it is a common notion in today’s society that stress & tension are things to avoid, manage, cope with, or get rid of, most people are unaware of the body’s inherent ability to reorganize or use tension in a way that promotes peace, clarity, sustainable transformation, and deep connection to self and others.  Join Lawrence Bell D.C. on a week-long journey into the heart of a very unique & learnable language designed to awaken the natural rhythms of body-mind and the human potential.  He will be assisted by Brendan Hill, who brings his unique healing touch and experience in guiding people through the path of discovery.

During the week, participants are free to immerse as deeply as they want into our holistic program while opting for other forms of fun, adventure, and relaxation. The holistic program includes private & group sessions (advanced spinal care, breath & energy work), guided meditations, as well as health & wellness workshops that offer tools for growth and empowered perspectives regarding “the journey”.  Each day of the week builds upon the one prior.  All approaches used are very gentle in nature and designed to assist each participant in gracefully transitioning into a peaceful, heart-centered, and empowered state of being.   One need not be an experienced Yogi or “spiritually advanced” to learn or enjoy the benefits that come with this form of care.

This week-long celebration is driven by each participant and supported by a team of seasoned practitioners devoted to assisting each person in creating a rich, embodied, and memorable experience.
