Rejuvenate Retreat is partnering with the nonprofit organization, Partners Through Art, to provide a unique experience for retreat attendees. Karla Parbon, M.A., will be leading the women who choose to attend her class through an activity that uses dance-like movements to promote emotional healing, called Healing Movements: Connecting our Mind and Body. This workshop will focus on calming the mind to inspire greater connections between the heart and soul using basic visual and movement concepts. We will discover how movement produces the ability to bring greater self-awareness and inspired thinking to bring peace and tranquility. Through the use of the arts, we will discover how to strengthen the relationship between the body, soul and mind; promoting the individual’s ability to seek self-care in a safe and supporting environment.
