Event Description

There are beautiful wild forces within us, says St. Francis. This heart-focused mind-body-spirit-practices retreat taps East-West spiritual wisdom on indwelling life force. The Spirit coursing through life’s veins fills and interconnects us, all creation and the Sacred as one. Join facilitator Catherine Quehl-Engel at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) as we harness the healing energy of love. We will practice shifting our awareness to the oneness we’ve had all along through radiant heart, breath and energy-centered meditation, yoga and prayerful sending of compassionate healing intention. We will also practice deep peace yoga nidra (or yogic sleep), vibrational sound healing, and the energy medicine of qigong and healing touch. This retreat enfolds insights from mysticism and HeartMath scientific research. The cost of this weekend retreat is $230 and includes sessions, lodging and all meals. The commuter fee is $180 and includes sessions, Saturday lunch and dinner, and Sunday lunch. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at www.Prairiewoods.org or 319-395-6700.
