State of Liberty

Online Wellbeing Retreats

Our online wellbeing retreats have been designed so that you can enjoy a retreat experience in your own home and create a sustainable wellbeing lifestyle.

 

Rather than urging you to ‘get away’ and ‘escape reality’ to improve your health and wellbeing, we believe the best place to start is in the home, making small changes to your daily routine and forming habits that will last.

Emma B, Spring Retreat 2018

State of Liberty combines both online and offline content so that you can enjoy a retreat in your own home and experience the benefits long-term.

We’ve included the following elements, all of which have been carefully chosen to complement each other and support you from season to season.

Six Wellbeing Elements

Yoga

Our approach to yoga is gentle. This doesn’t mean it’s not strong, but that we focus on finding ease, slowing down and learning how to practise with kindness and mindfulness.

Food

Nutrition, health and wellbeing are intrinsically linked. When we’re conscious of our food choices and aware of our personal needs, natural rhythms, cycles and habits, we are choosing the most responsible and liberating way of eating and living.

Meditation

Meditation gives you the opportunity to take time for yourself and slow down, to reconnect with your inner self and cultivate a sense of peace within.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness technique

Life is busy and full of distractions, it’s easy to lose touch with ourselves and become trapped in automatic thinking and doing. Mindfulness helps us break out of this pattern and focus our attention more deeply on the here and now.

Pamper

The pamper element in our online retreats empowers you to carve out time for yourself, slow down, relax and be kind to both your mind and body.

Sleep

Sleep is the restorative element in our online retreats, essential for health and happiness. This powerful process helps our bodies heal, but is often compromised when life is busy, stressful or when caring for others.

Seasonal Living

Traditional Chinese Medicine influences our approach, this ancient system illustrates the importance of following the natural rhythms and cycles of our planet to support balance in our bodies and minds.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has five seasons, each season correlates to one of the five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water) and has a dominant organ, colour, emotion and taste connected to it. Each season also supports, nourishes and prepares the body for the next season, creating a constant cycle of wellbeing.

Resistance & Self-Care

At State of Liberty, we’re particularly interested in the ways we resist and avoid self-care. Most of us never had healthy self-care practices modelled for us. We may have inherited beliefs that confuse self-care with selfishness, laziness or indulgence.

The truth is, when we don’t take care of ourselves, advocate for our needs or ask for support, we don’t receive what we inherently need and for us to do our work in the world, care and restoration is essential.

Scheduled throughout our online retreats are focused wellbeing discussions to help you set clear intentions, explore any internal resistance to self-care and to help integrate wellbeing into your life long-term.

Join us for one of our upcoming seasonal retreats

Summer ‘Open Season’ Retreat

The summer season is a time of long, light, warm days, high energy, outdoor activities, gatherings and celebrations.

However, the high energy and activity of summer can make it difficult to focus on rest and self-care. The State of Liberty Summer Retreat has been designed to support you during this season.

Late Summer ‘Open Season’ Retreat – Available August 14th

Chinese Five Elements Theory recognises a five season cycle and so our September retreat takes place during the season of Late Summer.

Our Late Summer Retreat will  provide you with wellbeing practices and simple self-care techniques required for sustained wellbeing through the colder, darker months ahead.
