Join Jamie Renee Lashbrook and Grace Bryant on a 4-day silent journey that will re- awaken your true voice- the voice of your heart. We invite you into a deep conversation with your body to hear your pains, fears and traumas that have silenced this voice- in a new, loving and healing way.
You will meet your stories and how they impact your life through daily practictices of active- healing breath work, Hridaya yoga, movement, voice, written expression and more. Your intuitive senses will re-emerge as you release pain, contraction and trauma so the path of your unique soul can be seen again.
The blend of these somatic and meditative practices will help you discover what resonates with you so that you can build a sustainable daily practice- a vital tool to rebuild your altar of self-love and self- healing.
Your physical system will take pause with a day of fasting on fresh juices, herbal potions and healing broths. Within you lies the knowledge of how to nourish your body. When you remove the noise of digestion and all of your daily food decisions that knowledge can be heard.
Nothing is in conflict with you- especially your beautiful body… Is illness simply a dis-ease of your mind?… come explore this and many questions.
This is a co-ed gathering, embracing the one-ness we are woven into you. (couples welcome, groups welcome- explore with those you love in silence and witness and see an immediate transformation in your relationships ).
This is a time to go deep within- in a safe, sacred and silent container. And, if you have taken deep journeys before you know that the healing begins once you make that commitment – with that yes to silence meeting soma.
Gift yourself the time and space to get quiet, go deep into your heart and listen to your body. This is the greatest gift you can give yourself and thus is the greatest gift you can give the Life, The Mystery, the Love, the Healing, the Wisdom and the Medicine ready to assist and recieve you.
~Group sessions include daily guided breath work and meditation, tools to release stored traumas and contractions, movement, sound and ceremony. You will leave with a blueprint for your daily practice – the foundation for healing.
~The food will reflect the intention to slow down and remove distractions. You will spend a day in digestive silence with organic juices, teas and broths.. All other meals will be light, fresh, organic, vegetarian, gluten, dairy and allergen-free. And, of course, made with Love.
~The retreat will be held in a sacred container with opening and closing circles. We ask all attendees to arrive and depart as one group (times below) to honor this container. We also invite you to bring an offering for the altar that reflects your medicine and your dream.
~Held at the vast and magical lands at Skalitude Retreat Center (Fall) participants will have ample time to co create with the lands, take a sweat in the sauna- breathe and renew in the pristine natural surroundings. This is the perfect setting for you to remember your connection to the natural healing rhythms that live within and around you at all times.

Jamie and Grace have a combined 35 years of experience helping to guide individuals in remembering the medicine in their heart through healing modalities of the body- mind-spirit. Grace Bryant has been a whole life educator for nearly 2 decades, integrating drama, music, movement, meditation and yoga, mindful living, creative play, teamwork, conscious collaboration and leadership. Her Yogic path began in 2005 when her sister dragged her to a Yoga class in Federal Way. She fell in love with savasana and came back just for relaxation. In 2007, she was inspired to start teaching informally and since then has studied and taught in 6 countries and devoted her entire life to the journey of awakening. Grace recently completed the Hridaya Teacher Training in Mexico and is beyond grateful to have received the teachings of Advaita Tantra and the Spiritual Heart. She believes these teachings can transform the consciousness of anyone who practices them sincerely. Grace’s favorite classes are those which expand consciousness and also incorporate how to live with more awareness, trust and compassion. She leads classes, discussion groups, workshops, womens groups, and retreats in the Pacific Northwest and abroad with a focus on living with an open heart. Through her many teachers she continues to unfold into a deep sense of peace and trust and hopes to share this in her teachings. More information can be found at her website, www.bewholebehappy.com.
Jamie Renee Lashbrook is a devotee to and warrior of the human spirit- lover of all creatures seen and unseen. She entered the world of healing with a simple desire to invoke remembrance in you. For you to remember your song, for you to remember, tell and transform your stories of love and pain. For you to feel that undercurrent of truth and wisdom that has walked with you every step of every day even when you have felt your most empty and alone. For you to feel connected deeply to your amazing body and understand the language it speaks. For you to remember Love. In her private practice she blends Maya Abdominal and Clinical Visceral massage, healing breath work, mentoring, herbal wisdom and ancient healing practices based in shamanism and reclaiming traditions. She is highly versed in the functions of the body and dis-ease; specializing in trauma/stress disorders, digestive and reproductive health for men and women. She engages the wisdom of the body through touch, voice, breath, silence, prayer and the healing balms of the Earth. Her own healing path is her greatest teacher. She commits to this path daily and finds her greatest healing in nature, in silent meditation, song, community and her family. She brings this all to you when Silence Meets Soma.
All participants will receive $20 off an in person or Skype Breath work Session with Jamie or Coaching session with Grace to help integrate the practices learned and to continue releasing any limiting patterns.
