Extraordinary Renewal * Extraordinary Restoration * Extraordinary Replenishment

If you are looking to replenish your body, spirit, and mind during this powerful lead-up to the new moon, this retreat is for you. Hosted by Charlene Millias  on her blessed 33 acres and facilitated by Karuna, this nature retreat has it all. Enjoy specially curated meals by Chef Flavia Langoni, daily yoga and meditation, a goodie bag filled with fun self-care items, fire puja and marshmallows, nature walks, and…a special floating sound bath on the property’s pond.

Meditation * Yoga *Sound Baths * Swimming * Sky-Gazing * Stars * Fire Puja

We’ll go through the powerful Extraordinary Intention setting that is the basis of Karuna’s upcoming book, “Circle of Intention.” You’ve never experienced intention setting like this. An Extraordinary Intention guides how we want to feel, live, and breathe in each moment of our life. Together, we’ll:

  • explore our heart’s desire

  • craft an extraordinary intention

  • spend quiet time steeping in our life’s intention

  • craft upside down goals in support of our intention (yep! We use goals to support our intention not the other way around)

  • enjoy embodied practices in support of our extraordinary intention, and

  • we’ll leave armed with a compass and other navigation tools to ensure we are living aligned for the rest of our lives.

“The intention workshop I took in the middle of last year was the single most potent catalyst for change I have been blessed with in my 36 years of life. EVERYTHING started coming together once I got crystal clear about who I am and what I want to do. My capacity to facilitate healing, for both myself and others, exploded.” William F.
