Olympic Adventure Retreat with Holman Health Connections
Aug 5, 2018| $750
Liz and Roy are thrilled to offer this amazing Olympic National Park adventure for the first time.
What will we do?
Yoga, meditation walks, hiking, swimming, and “forest bathing” in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
Why Olympic National Park?
Quite honestly, the Olympic National Park is my (Roy) favorite place on Earth. I am not exaggerating. I have had a passion for the Olympics since the first time I visited. I have travelled and backpacked all over the world, but there is something about the Olympics, with its old growth rainforests, stunning beaches, alpine meadows, river valleys and amazing wildlife that stirs my soul. So, we decided to combine the inner with the outer, the hiking with the meditation, the forest bathing and the yoga, the community with the solitude, and it will be awesome.
Schedule: Aug 5, 8:00 am – Aug 10, 5:00 pm, 2018
We still need to finish putting this together. The Parks Service is talking about raising its prices, which is one variable. And we have to decide if we want to stay in a hotel our final night, or camp again, and how many meals to eat out. So, I will have the price set around January 1, but I am guessing about $795 for the 5 night trip. $750 early bird by May 1.
What is included in this trip?
I have visited the Olympics for the last twenty years, and know some of the best places to visit, many which are well known, some lesser known. We will include car camping, back country (forest and beach) camping, yoga (some on the beach!), meditation walks, some meals (camp cooking, as well as eating out). Price includes all guided hikes, sites, yoga, meditation, campsites, park passes, back country permits, and about half the meals.
What to Bring:
We will discuss this in detail later, but some things to keep in mind: Two nights will be backpack trips. Although relatively short and easy–about two miles one way each–one should have access to the proper gear (we can guide you what to buy or borrow). You will need a backpack, sleeping bag, tent (you can share with someone), sleeping foam or blow up pad, hiking boots or shoes or even sandals.
About the Teachers:
Roy Holman: I am a 500 hour Certified Yoga teacher, in the Viniyoga tradition. I teach a safe, gentle, body-friendly, grounded, breath-connected, meditative, flowing traditional hatha yoga – a meditation in motion really. I like to move slow, give time to breathe deeply and savor the poses. I also teach breath-work (pranayama) and meditation, and also try to incorporate the many aspects of emotional healing and balancing I have learned. The meditation is a mindfulness style, with focus on breath awareness, heart opening, body senses, emotional clearing, and connection on all levels (body, breath, emotions, Earth, Spirit).
Liz Gross: “I believe all healing involves alignment of the soul with the body.” Liz is a gifted sound and vibration healer, and teaches with Roy on retreats. Liz teaches yoga, meditation, Oneness and often does some of the cooking on our retreats. “When you’re consciously in touch with the life energy within yourself, you have awareness & communication with the flow of energy that connects you to spirit. I feel very passionate about Vibrational Medicine and love working with others in this way & helping others to connect with their purpose and passion in life. Vibrational Energy Medicine brings the physical, emotional, mental, & spiritual bodies back into balance, which opens the way for rebuilding the healing systems of the body.”
