Join Sudie Rakusin and Betsy Bertram for a unique yoga and creativity retreat designed to connect you to your inner goddess. Spend the afternoon at Sudie’s beautiful studio tucked away in the trees to renew and revive your inner creative spirit and divine nature. Through yoga, creativity and connection magnify your inner light in this afternoon workshop. In this 4 hour long workshop imagine your ideal self in saint or goddess form.
This workshop is inspired by Sudie’s divination deck, The Journey Cards. There are 36 Pen and ink drawings of goddesses and 19 paintings of Saints. The goddesses from antiquity and the imagined saints provide guidance through their particular virtues.
The workshop will begin with a centering all levels, gentle yoga practice led by Betsy designed to open the heart to the divinity within. Through a slow, soulful flow, we will surrender all that is no longer serving us to create space for the divine to shine.
After the opening yoga class, participants will have the opportunity to imagine themselves as a saint or goddess. Who would you be? What is your name? What is your myth, your teachings? Who and what surround you?
At Sudie’s studio we will lay out a tarp with all the supplies and you will be invited to dive into your creativity. A piece of archival cardboard, 8” x 10” or larger will be supplied; as well as paint, beads, ribbon, strands of flowers and leaves, glue guns, etc. Please bring anything of significance to incorporate into your mixed media creation.
You will be invited to also write a myth and teachings inspired by your goddess or saint. If desired, you may share your mixed media creation and myth with the group. Delight in the amazing conversations that arise from these revelations.
After creating your goddess card and myth, we will end with a restorative yoga nidra led by Betsy. Leave feeling rested, restored and re-inspired in body, mind and spirit.
