      Awakening! A Weekend Retreat to Nourish Yourself and Build Community EARLY BIRD Registration (before May 1)

      “Awakening” means “an act of waking from sleep, becoming suddenly aware, or experiencing the beginning of something.” Humans are experiencing spiritual awakenings at a remarkable rate, and yet many have the awakening in silence, struggling to understand what is happening and how it will impact their lives. A spiritual awakening can be a beautiful thing, but can also be incredibly disruptive and perhaps even destructive to one’s life. Many people are afraid they are going “crazy,” or concerned that people in their lives now will no longer accept them or their new gifts. Historically, the resources available to those “awakening” have been extremely limited. Where do you turn when you are going through such a shift?  The Pyramid Holistic Wellness Center in Rutland, Vermont is very pleased to offer a weekend retreat to help people understand and successfully maneuver through an awakening—providing a safe environment to explore what it means to have an awakening, outline what one might expect to happen physically, emotionally, and spiritually, provide helpful education, and to build a network of support that will continue long after the weekend ends.  Workshop Outline Saturday 10 AM - 10:30 AM: Opening Ceremony and Ice Breaker 10:30 AM - 12 PM: What Is Awakening?  In this workshop led by Eileen Gennette Coughlin, participants will explore the signs and symptoms of an “awakening,” discuss the importance of embracing the changes that come with awakening, and learn tools for grounding and support. Participants will have an opportunity to share and receive feedback from the facilitators, as well as support from the entire group.  12 PM - 1:30 PM: Lunch on your own (community space available) 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM: Transformation through Hypnosis  Presenter Mary Battaglia will teach participants how to use self hypnosis to integrate awakening insights to transform your life. She will also lead a guided meditation to bring these insights fully into your being.  2:30 PM - 4PM: Integrating the Emotional Impact of Awakening In the Western world, embracing an awakening often means letting go of things, people, places, and beliefs about our past, resulting in an unanticipated grief process. William Kelley will guide this workshop on how to handle the complex emotions of awakening and how to move forward with the blessings of the experience while grieving the changes in a healthy way. 4 PM - 5 PM: Journey Experience  Participants will experience a full session in the Himalayan Salt Garden or one of our other sound and light journey experiences.  6:30 PM: Optional Evening Activity - Yoga and Drum Circle This class, led by William Kelley, will be suitable for all levels of fitness and yoga and will give participants a routine useful for opening and balancing all of the chakras. Participants are invited to bring their own percussion instruments or use ours as we wrap up the evening with community drumming. This activity is meant to build community using the power of connection and inner awareness.  Sunday 9 AM - 10 AM - Optional Morning Activity: Jump Start Fitness This is an optional fitness class to start your morning with a bang!

How do you integreate your spiritual awakening and wisdom into daily life. How do you stay on the path when you are constantly getting detoured? How do I use this new ability?
