Spiral Into Self -Fall Mountain Retreat


  • Mookshi Healing Arts Center 702 South Trenton Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15221 United States (map)

A fall mountain retreat for women* to cultivate self compassion, clear emotional and energetic clutter, and create routines for honoring the temple (your body) that you live in.

Spiral Into Self is an introspective and healing weekend where we delve into the most important part of being alive...our own Self. The crispness of the mountain air and the shedding of leaves are our inspiration. We take a cue from this gorgeous season and draw our own energy inward to nurture and grow our relationship with ourselves. We will spend the weekend honoring the temple that we live in. Learning to reclaim our sovereignty in order to explore our inherent ability to move though the world in an embodied way. We will practice and cultivate ways of improving our individual capacity for self-love, joy and ease.

Retreat highlights: yoga & breathwork, meditation, Ayurveda, self-compassion practices, sauna, art-making and free time. By the end of the weekend you will have a practical and easy self-care routine to take with you as well as a journal with your personal notes and insights. Nourishing Ayurvedic vegetarian meals will be provided (food sensitivities will be accommodated to the best of our ability).  

Coming together as a community of women* is an opportunity for authentic sharing and witnessing. In circle we can empower ourselves and one another through the integrity, respect, and vulnerability we bring. In a world where we are asked to compete and compare all too often, let us lay down our armor and celebrate each other’s beauty.

Come home to yourself… Join us for the Spiral Into Self retreat! Calm your mind and open your heart so that you may spiral back out into your life with an awakened experience of yourself and vision for your life.

It is important to us to make this work accessible for those despite economic challenges. There will be two Seva (work study) positions available. These are available at a greatly reduced rate in exchange for helping with the flow of the weekend. Details for applying for these positions will be available in August. The Seva positions are intended to serve those who would like to attend the retreat but don’t have the financial resources to do so; please do not treat the Seva program like a coupon. To be placed on the list to be notified when Seva application info is ready, please email sarah@skyrootswellness.com.
