Madre Tierra Expressive Therapy and Yoga Retreat: Mandala Series

With Ella Raphaella Dufrene, Lisa Clementi and Ryan Bean

September 27 - 30, 2019

Allow yourself to step back from day-to-day demands for a journey toward self exploration, relaxation, increased awareness, and personal growth, enlightened by the restorative powers of Mother Earth. Disconnect to reconnect as you immerse in nature, tranquility, and the expressive therapies.


This three-day, three-night retreat offers a sacred and meditative space to deepen connections and expand awareness with ourselves and nature through yoga, nature walks, and experiential expressive therapy workshops led by licensed creative art therapists and certified yoga practitioners.


This retreat is designed for anyone who is interested in self-exploration through the expressive therapies, as well as practitioners in the fields of mental health and spiritual counseling. This retreat is presented in a unique format that allows practitioners and non-practitioners alike to gain hands on experience using the expressive therapies in their own lives or practice.
