Alongside the cognitive power of our brain, we have a biological intelligence that is often ignored. We refer to this as our body’s intelligence system. This intelligence system communicates through the neuromotor and neurohormonal pathways between brain and body. Our truths, values, desires, and deepest longings live in our bodies and often go unnoticed. We all talk about our gut instinct and what our heart wants, yet we have not been taught how to access and trust these sensing forms of intelligence. The invitation of this retreat is to explore your biological intelligence. You will begin to reconnect with your inner compass and recognize your own inner voice in such an unmistakable way that your choices for what’s next become clear.

Going on a retreat is a lot like having a baby, in that there's no good time to do it. It always feels like you can't take the time away, or shouldn't spend the money. But I'm so glad I did. The retreat was a container in which the energy and demands of the outside world were momentarily paused. In that space, I was able to exhale, and at the bottom of that exhale I could look around and see what was really going on in my life at that moment.
I had never done group coaching before, and while it was uncomfortable to share my processing with others at first, by the end I was so grateful for the witnessing and accountability that the group provided. I particularly loved the combination and juxtaposition of movement and stillness, contemplation and conversation, solo work, and group sessions. As always, Miranda was able to get to the heart of the matter -- regardless of what the matter is -- with a breathtaking combination of directness and grace.
The retreat itself was in such a gorgeous place, and the home-cooked meals made with locally-sourced ingredients only added to the sense of nourishment. As someone who recharges with alone time, I was grateful for the encouragement and support in stepping away when I wanted to be on my own.
While I don't have all the answers after the retreat, I have a better sense of how to check in with myself -- through my body -- to decide how to engage with unfolding experiences, situations, and relationships.
