About this Event

Why sangha? Sangha means community in Sanskrit. It is through community that we heal. We have a biological need to be around other people: for friendship, for love and to simply feel safe. Feeling a part of a community increases our immunity, our serotonin levels, gives us boosts of oxytocin (especially after a long hug) and raises our endorphins – all the chemicals we need to feel happy. Yet we isolate ourselves in our suffering, our ego telling us we are alone and that no one can understand what we are going through. This is simply not true. In addition, more and more research is being provided on somatic healing or working through the body to release trauma and chronic tension. Through various therapies such Yoga including breathing and meditation practices we take control back for our own healing and ultimately connection back to our Self. Peter Levine, a leading trauma therapist states: "Trauma is a fact of life, but it doesn’t need to be a life sentence." Check out this blog I wrote on The Impact of Holding Stress in Our Body and How to Heal

We've chosen two large cottages situated right on Georgian Bay on our own private beach with plenty of space for group discussions (satsang), yoga practices and sit-down meals. Plus, choose some quiet time to read, reflect, play in the water or other healing modalities designed just for you. All weekend activities are optional, allowing you to choose your own pace for healing and practice.

Co-led by husband and wife: Lisa Greenbaum E-RYT 500 + Certified Yoga Therapist and Bob Chuckman, MSW, licensed psychotherapist and 200hr Yoga Teacher. All meals prepared by Sarah Carroll, a Red Seal Chef and current executive chef at Hope Place Centres.
