Workshop & Retreats
Into the Elements
weekend retreat with
Melinda Matzell & Megan-Mack Nicholson
August 19-21, 2022
light on the hill retreat center, Van Etten, NY
Just being in nature is healing. As our tech driven lives move us further away from the natural world, we need to make time to spend outside with the elements. Within our systems we hold the energies of the earth, water, fire, air, sound, light and consciousness. When these forces are balanced within us, we enjoy greater equilibrium and well-being. Without that balance, it’s like we are lacking an essential part of our selves.
This weekend is that gift of time in nature that you need, to restore your center and revive your spirit. Join Shaman Reiki Master Megan-Mack, and Chakra-Energetics innovator Melinda for a Chakra Immersion: Into the Elements. Ground yourself in the nurturing energy of the EARTH with a Guided Forest Therapy Walk, as we integrate our senses with natures elements. Practice healing mudras by the pond to invoke the soothing qualities of WATER. Journey by the sacred FIRE into a space of personal power and freedom. Allow the AIR to soften your heart and let love and compassion into your heart space. Explore SOUND to find your authentic expression. Learn to trust the LIGHT of insight and imagination, guided by grace, that surrounds you. And open to the flow of divine CONSCIOUSNESS.
With the chakras as our map, we will travel from root to crown, integrating yoga movement, mudras, energy medicine, breath work, Shamanic Journeying and time in nature, to invite in the restorative qualities of the elements.
