Spring Splendor Day Retreat

  • Firebird Healing Arts 236 Richardson Street Brooklyn, NY, 11222 United States (map)

hosted by Sarah Rayne & Kristen Volpone

You are invited to bathe in nature's splendor and explore the sweetness of your senses on this Spring Retreat!


Our intention for the Spring Splendor Day Retreat is to mindfully and compassionately connect to our senses, becoming awakened by the beauty of being! We will explore taste, touch, smell, sound, sight & intuition, with playfulness and presence. Through mindful & soul-nourishing activities, we will inhabit our own experiences of the world around us, as well as the cosmos within us, and tap into the subtle joys and magic of feeling.

At this intimate urban day-retreat, we will establish a safe and sacred space and give ourselves the gift of time dedicated to self-care and connection. We will take a pause from our hectic daily lives to refresh, renew, and reconnect to the pure sweet essence of ourselves in the Spring season, all without having to leave the city. At Firebird, we will journey between our cozy womb-like studio space and the backyard throughout the day, to be reminded that nature is never far, and she is always here to support us if we ask.

Activities will include:
-Yin + Yang Yoga
-Sound + Reiki Healing Experiences
-Nature Crafting
-Community Circles
-Connecting with Nature
-Herbal Tea Meditation
-Mindful Group Lunch Outdoors

Please bring a nourishing lunch to eat, a water bottle, a notebook and pen, and dress in cozy clothes and layers. You’re welcome to bring any crystals or special items to contribute to our group altar.
