WHAT IS GRACE?

Move your body, move your mind, dance with your soul, and feel your heart open. Reflect on your experiences, integrate what you learn, and practice how to apply it in your life.

You’ll engage in life practices on your own, with a partner, and in a group, all that ignite passion, joy, and graceful ease. It’s Cross-training for life.

Have a Grace-certified coach stand beside you while you look in the direction of your vision, practice your emotional fitness and develop your intention.

Reconnect with your divine design. Spend time in nature, take walks, tap into your creative self. You will learn several mindfulness practices to take care of the greatest asset – you. Time to contemplate, reflect and integrate.

Explore what you learn and experience throughout the weekend through writing, a practice that offers a deep opportunity for contemplation. We’ll use it to open up parts of ourselves we may never before have dared to go, all in a safe space designed for reflection.
