SUE VAN RAES:
When we immerse into a week just for ourselves, personal break throughs happen. In our busy day to day lives, we often get stuck in the daily grind, pushing through and rarely seeing life in the big perspective of our health and happiness. In my experience, international retreats give us a chance to get out of our day-to-day go-to's and perspectives to see things a little differently, learn new practices that serve our higher good, and take a much needed break to unwind, restore and tap back into our feminine nature and wisdom.
I have led over 10 international retreats and many others locally and in my community. I host women's groups live and virtually with participants from all over the world. It is a deep love I have to see women prioritize themselves and their health and support each other in their desires and
intentions. Each time we venture on retreat, beautiful things happen, both internally in how we emerge more resourced, rested and clear and in the beautiful relationships we form with other women on a similar quest.
One women can change anything. Many women can change everything.
"There is nothing more exciting to me than helping someone begin to notice how their physical, emotional, and spiritual states respond by preparing pure, balanced and delicious meals with the intention of well being. Simply by choosing food that properly nourishes our body, we are capable of taking the role of healer and placing it in our own hands. The sense of empowerment gained by this piece of knowledge is profound."
After college, Lauren attended the School of Natural Cookery to follow her passion for plant-based cooking, and has operated a personal chef and culinary education business for 13 years. In 2000, Lauren found and fell deeply in love with yoga. Yoga and mindful cooking have such congruency and Lauren has found deep passion aligning these two practices.
By intuitively attending to our most basic needs – breath, movement and healing food – I believe we can show up fully to live our most vital lives.
