Pre-Holiday Awakening Joy! Retreat to be held in Sautee
The weekend will focus on slowing down, finding one’s peace within and returning “blissfully rested and spiritually inspired,” states Davis’ website. Activities will include mindfulness meditation, an Awakening Joy meditation, forest bathing, restorative yoga and yoga nidra, a deep relaxation technique.
“I’ve been helping people find fulfillment in their lives for many years,” Davis says. “With mindfulness as my foundation, my interest is in teaching people how to slow down and relax into their lives with an enhanced sense of clarity, happiness and well-being.”
Davis, who conducts her practice in Sautee Nacoochee, earned her master’s degree in social work from the University of Georgia and has trained in yoga, Tai chi and Ayurveda. She is a registered teacher and trainer through the Yoga Alliance.
“Our joy is not something we create; it is already here inside us,” she says. “On retreat, we will travel through the doorways of mind, body and spirit to create the conditions for these beautiful states to naturally arise.”
Davis has offered 30 retreats since 1993 and has attended more than 50 retreats, including two that were a month long.
The cost for the Awakening Joy! Retreat ranges from $575 to $749 depending on accommodations. The Elohee Center is located at 251 Elohee Drive, Sautee, Georgia.
