Silent Expansion: A Silent Retreat
Saturday March 25th with Kelsey Rudzinsky 10am - 6pm
Too much too soon?
The noise of our world today can be deafening to our instincts, our creativity, our nature. To hear what we want from within, it helps to get quiet!

Have you experienced the power of a silent retreat?

Silent Expansion is a day to reduce the noise by removing one of the ways that we engage with the external world. With mouths closed, and hearts and minds open, we heighten our ability to observe and to listen. We create the opportunity to hear what is calling our attention from within. What is the abundance that we wish to cultivate in our future? This day creates the space to let ourselves expand beyond the current limits of our mind and our daily habits, that we may have direction to guide our energy this Spring.
Less IS more...
Investment $144 includes lunch and guided (yet optional) Breathwork, movement and sound healing sessions.
Stop and smell the roses-> still tulips
Drew knows what it's like to need time and space to pause and is an exceptional teacher and supporter while we allow ourselves the same.

Spending time among animals can help us to slow down and hold space for ourselves the way that we would for another.

Drew is a Pet Partners Registered Therapy Dog. He is masterful at providing support and will always respect the privacy or sensitivity of your situation.
Pet Partner Therapy visits with Miriam and Drew at Sky Pond are free of charge; available for up to 2 hour durations as schedules permit.

Contact us if you or someone you know could benefit from this healing time, and keep him in mind as a willing contributor to your therapeutic events.
Your seat at the table...Your mat on the floor...
...Sky Pond is ready for you!

Whether your need to get away is to be among quiet or community, it will always be personal. This is why we love being a smaller venue, which fosters deeper connection by design.

In that spirit of personal connection, let us know how we can help bring your vision into clarity. We are honored to have welcomed several first-time hosts (among the seasoned!) to this space, which speaks to the natural sense of support that comes from being in nature.

As your ideas are blossoming, check out the list of amenities and FAQ to support the nurturing of your planning; and the reservations page for pricing, availability or add-ons.
As we enter this time of growth, be sure to take time to renew. Remember that the earth takes months to navigate one season, and each flower opens in its own time along the way.

We hope you'll take advantage of the possibilities here to support you during this time of the year and always, through all of life's seasons by the pond.

~ Sean & Miriam Anderson
Everything in its own time.
