Mindfully Recovering Retreat - Healing Addictive Patterns
3 Day Retreat near Wakefield, Quebec Canada

This Mindfully Recovering 3 Day Retreat is suited for anyone who has ever struggled with any form of addictive patterns and reactive thinking (food, work, alcohol/drugs, shopping, relationships etc.). During this retreat we will explore the roots causes of these addictive patterns and support one another as we let go of limiting behaviours and grow into a life that better serves us. 

This retreat is being offered exclusively at Gaia Wellness Retreat November 30, 2018 - December 2, 2018. The 3 day retreat will offer overnight accommodations in our modern, rustic & cozy cabins, use of all the amenities on the property, 3 healthy vegetarian meals each day, an opportunity to unplug completely and enjoy self-care such as relaxing in our wood-burning sauna or curling up by one of the wood-burning fireplaces with a good book. This retreat will include a schedule of group sessions as well as one on one guidance, daily yoga & meditation classes, monthly follow-up, yoga/meditation programs and diet suggestions to follow after the retreat. Each package includes semi private accommodations, healthy vegetarian/vegan meals & snacks,  drinks, yoga sessions, wood-burning sauna and use of all the amenities at GWR.

Billie spent many years feeling trapped in reactive thinking and a life of addictive patterns and throughout her recovery over the last 15 years she has studied and put into practice the tools taught in this program and she has seen the profound changes that are possible! Billie brings a wealth of knowledge and personal experience to the teachings in this program as well as a genuine desire to help others on a path of healing and recovery. She is committed to providing her students with the tools neccesary to fully awaken to a true and authentic self. 

By exploring our inner lives and healing the wounds of the past we will be able to:

~Let go of limiting core beliefs
~Identify and transform the inner dialogue that traps us in 
reactive thinking
~Recognize and heal our harsh self-judgements
~Cultivate self-compssion and compassion for others
~Forgive ourselves and those that have hurt us
~Connect with our innate and unique creativity 
~Heal our relationships and learn to form healthy connections 
with others
~Detach from obsessive thinking
~Identify and let go of any false refuges and learn to come
home to a place of true refuge
~Awaken to our inner truth
~Connect deeply with and heal our bodies and our energy 
~Learn to love and accept all aspects of ourselves
~Chart a path to personal freedom and a contented life

This retreat is not a substitute to a 12 Step Program or other similar supports but rather it is set of tools and practices to enhance and support a life of recovery. We reccomend that participants have at least 6 months of sobriety if they are in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction. We also understand that life is busy and not everyone can always commit to the regular group sessions and the daily personal practices. We encourage students to participate as much as possible and to also respect your needs and the needs of others in your lives.
