Gather~Her Retreat


Jun 9,2017 - Jun 10,2017Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Recover your mind, restore your heart, reclaim your body, return to your WHOLE SELF.  ~With Jodi Krahn

You are invited to a transformative workshop with a unique blend of life coaching, restorative/yin style yoga, and embodied prayer, that help to integrate the four parts of a person: mind, heart, body and soul in order to connect with your true self and live a life you love.

All Bodies Welcome. Prior yoga experience NOT necessary.

June 9-10, 2017 Fri. 6 – 9 pm  &  Sat. 9 am – 8 pm

  Bring: Journal, Yoga Mat, 2 Pillows (bolsters), blanket, strap (house coat belt will do) and a bag lunch. Snacks and tea/coffee available. Supper provided. $155 Yoga means Union and Integration. Yoga helps us to embody ourselves as we unify our 4 voices, connecting intimately to ourselves and to the Divine. Yoga allows us to activate areas in the mind, heart and body that need attention and healing. Restorative Yoga is a gentle and compassionate form of yoga that can be adapted to any body type. It has many health and mental health benefits and when blended with teaching, inquiry and contemplative practices it becomes a powerful modality of healing and transformation. Friday night: Inviting our Mind to Come Home We have a mind-voice and it’s mostly not true. Our minds send us all kinds of thoughts that need to be witnessed and questioned but not necessarily believed. To question our thoughts is a kind way of being with our self. What are the stories your mind holds onto that keep you stuck in unhealthy patterns and keep you from connecting with your true essence? Is your self talk critical, harsh, judging, punishing, or nurturing, loving, accepting, and supportive? We will explore and inquire further into our mind-voice and learn how we can quiet our mental chatter and change our thoughts to what is true and develop helpful, nurturing ways of being in relationship with our self. Saturday morning: Inviting our Heart to Come Home Our heart is the doorway to our emotions. This door wants to open to the “easy” feelings; love, joy, peace, happy and wants to close to the “hard” ones; fear, shame, sad and angry. In order to bring our hearts home and live wholeheartedly, we need to learn to feel, listen to and express all of our emotions in a healthy way. When emotions are repressed/denied or carelessly expressed, relationships can break down and we can feel lost or even like we are drowning in a raging river we cant swim in. Emotions bring important messages that need to be listened to in order to find the wisdom that they bring helping us to form healthy relationships with others and with ourselves. Saturday afternoon: Inviting our Body to Come Home Our body houses our mind, our emotions and our souls as it carries us through our lives. Our bodies hold our history, memories and trauma in physical form. Without awareness of what needs attending to in our bodies, we feel uncomfortable in our own skin and treat ourselves accordingly. We may think our discomfort stems form excess weight or not being in shape when really the issue is much deeper. To come home to and heal our bodies we must learn to listen to our bodies deep wisdom with attention and tenderness. Perhaps this is what Jesus meant when he said that our bodies are a temple, a home. Saturday evening: Come Home to our Soul Integrating our Mind, Heart, and Body to be at home in our Soul. The soul is our highest consciousness and our connection to the divine. It is also where many believe our true self. Our Essence within, that we were born with, gets covered over through life and needs to be recovered and recalled. The soul is the place in us that knows, all truly will be well. Our work is not to have 4 divergent voices operating but to have one voice, the soul unified voice which is the voice that must lead us to live with purpose and connection. In this final session we will connect to and listen deeply to this voice, our true home that leads the way to wholeness, hope and guides our life. Jodi Krahn is a psychotherapist, a life coach and yoga teacher who lives in rural BC with her husband of 28 years and her cuddly therapy dog River. Her fourth and last child has recently left home for school, making her an official Empty Nester. Jodi experienced early attachment trauma through adoption and her parents divorce. This coupled with some painful religious abuse created the perfect storm for an eating disorder. After 25 yrs of struggling with bulimia Jodi is now in recovery and is passionate about helping others find their healing, recovery and reclamation of self through her private practice as therapist and life coach as well as founder of GatherHer workshops and retreats. Jodi believes that part of our lives work is to recover, restore and reclaim the lost aspects of ourselves to come home to ourselves so that we can be gathered and loved, in order love our people in a healthy way, and find our purpose. www.Jodikrahn.com “I have come to know and experience that body work is highly effective and necessary on the deep healing journey to wellness and freedom, however, often the BODY is neglected and needs to be listened and attended to. Jodi’s passion and loving care create a safe, beautiful, and effective healing experience. Hope you can join us for  this time flowing with contemplation, music, & healing body work”   - Lorie Martin www.loriemartin.com
