The Sister Sciences Retreat: Ayurveda & Yoga on the Land

Location: Keewaydin Farms, 15270 Haucke Ln, Viola, WI 54664

Date: Saturday, August 28th

Time: 10 AM -6 PM

On-farm camping included

The Sister Sciences Retreat will be led by Amy Olson, lifestyle coach and graduate student at Maharishi International University, where she has studied Ayurveda Wellness and is currently seeking her MA in Consciousness & Human Potential. Amy will begin by giving participants an individual pulse assessment and covering some Ayurveda basics. Then we will set our intention and share an Ayurvedic lunch. During the meal, we will discuss and practice the art of “mindful eating”. After lunch, we’ll go on an interactive exploration of the land through the lens of the Sister Sciences, including a plant walk, co-led by herbalist and Reiki master, Julie Hanson, who will identify and discuss medicinal plants and their healing properties. Then, we’ll move through a gentle practice of asanas and breathwork to prepare for our meditation, which will be accompanied by sound healing singing bowls tuned to the chakras. After the close of the meditation, we will take a moment for reflective conversation. Finally we’ll gather around the fire to close with a collective Sankalp (intention) and herbal tea made from plants gathered on the land.
