Shepard Spring Retreat Center
a pearl sponsored retreat
let mother nature show you that blooming is your birthright
bloom: a weekend retreat
Look around and you will see that the entire natural world is blooming. After a long time of rest and reflection, seeds are sprouting, flowers are resurfacing and the sun is beginning to provide more warmth and more light to help us grow.
Mother Nature makes no excuses. She grows wildly, abundantly, and expands as much as she needs to make this world beautiful. To bloom like Mother Nature is as natural as life itself, yet so often we allow old habits and attachments to stunt our growth. It is time to dissolve the patterns that keep you confined. It is time to bloom.
During this 2 1/2 day retreat, you will learn to embrace fresh starts and radiant renewal. Like a butterfly, you will begin a great metamorphosis. You will transform. Through self-care activities such as yoga, hiking, flower alchemy, healing circles, and therapeutic art, you will find the tools you need to bloom into the best version of yourself.
The full bloom retreat will be held at Shepard Spring Retreat Center in Sharpsburg, MD. The comfortable yet simplistic environment is perfect for keeping participants focused on the necessary work of letting go.
Facilitated by Heather Jefferson, wellness director, and 500 E-RYT instructor, and Kelly Felix, lead mindful movement instructor, and 500 RYT Certified Yoga
