a breathARMY Total Reset Weekend

JUNE 9th-11th

Explore the body-based practices of BREATH, ICE, HEAT and MOVEMENT to reconnect to your true potential.

Harness these powerful tools backed by science to find the freedom and joy your heart desires along with the resiliency required to navigate a wildly and rapidly changing world.

Shatter your limiting beliefs and let go of living in fear. Master your mind and remember your true nature. Embark on a facilitated Forest Medicine Journey with us to dive deep into your inner terrain and unravel the patterns, beliefs and limitations that hold you back from showing up as the best version of you in your life, relationships and career.

Join us for this one-of-a-kind experience designed to help you learn to utilize simple and practical tools that will lead you to more peace, creativity and flow in all aspects of your life, your relationships and your career.

Over the course of this retreat we will touch on the basics of nervous system regulation, harnessing the power of your breath, natural stress management and how to improve mood and create ecstatic, blissful states of being using only breathwork and natural stressors like heat and cold.
  • Breathwork
    Our breath is our greatest resource. Explore the profound states of consciousness accessible through breathwork led by master breathwork facilitator Jeff Sorensen. Harness this incredible power in your day to day life with a simple framework for personal practice, nervous system regulation and stress management.
  • Cold & Heat Exposure
    Gain mastery over your nervous system and mind using ice and heat as a mirror to reflect our aversions to sensation and discomfort. The nervous system is the energetic system of our body. Expanding its capacity allows you to stay regulated and expansive in stressful situations, expand your energetic field and your ability to channel energy in your life as well as enhanced creativity.
  • Movement
    Open and align the body to higher states of being with a variety of movement practices intelligently sequenced with the other modalities presented to move and amplify the energetic shifts created. Movement practices will vary from yoga, somatic release techniques, to ecstatic dance and more.
  • Community
    Coming together in community with others of like mind and vibration is perhaps one of the most potent and powerful medicines of our times. Entering a safe container where we can be seen, heard and held by our community allows us to heal our wounds and strengthen our confidence and authenticity to show up in the world as the one we came here to be.

“When we embrace these practices individually we can create miracles in our life, when practice together in community we can change the world.”
