Why Bliss with us in February?
Winter is a time to go inward. To reflect, contemplate and replenish. This is the time of year – if you check in with your body’s natural rhythm – to slow down, rest and press PAUSE. It is a chance to get more grounded and get back in touch with your authentic self.
Join soulful, like-minded women at this empowering and nurturing getaway, February 19 – 21, 2016. This winter Bliss Weekend is designed to nourish you from the “inside-out” and offer you the space to hear your own inner guidance about your next steps in life.
What is a Bliss Weekend all about?
Now more than ever women are experts at juggling multi-faceted lives. The demands of work, family and home are often prioritized first leaving no time for self-care. This is where Bliss comes in…
Bliss Weekends present women with the opportunity to press pause and take a break from the busyness of life. The focus of the weekend is to explore mind, body and soul through workshops, discussions, communal cooking, music, social activities and time spent in nature.
There are no rules at a Bliss weekend! You can sleep in! You can relax by the fireplace. You can attend workshops, go for a ski and make new friends. You can practice yoga and let loose your inner goddess! Whatever mood strikes you, just go with it! This weekend is about YOU and only you!
Magic. Transformation. Sisterhood. Inspiration. Bliss.
You will experience all this and more at a Bliss Weekend. We promise you won’t be disappointed! Our gushing, warm-and-fuzzy 5-star reviews don’t lie!
What will happen at the weekend?
Every Bliss Weekend is a unique experience because the constellation of women who come make it vibrant, special and transformational every time! This February will be no different.
Our winter program focuses very intentionally on bringing your mind, body and soul into balance. We have included programming to nurture these three areas of your being.
And because it’s winter and it’s in our nature to get cozy in colder weather, we are going to stick together throughout the weekend as much as possible! Normally at Bliss Weekends, participants choose between workshops running at the same time. But at this weekend, everyone will be able to enjoy ALL the weekend has to offer. As a smaller group, participants can attend each and every aspect of the program we are offering!
This Bliss Weekend will include:
- A morning meditation class to start your day right!
(Set the tone for an awesome weekend with quiet time for yourself)
- A morning cross-country ski to enjoy the outdoors and get your blood pumping!
(Weekend registration includes ski rental, full-day trail pass, and a ski lesson)
- A Gentle Flow and Restorative Yoga Class after lunch
(This class has been designed to be restorative for the body after our morning ski)
- A workshop focused on happiness and wellness of mind
(Join our expert facilitator for this 1.5 hour afternoon workshop)
- A craft and creativity session to get ideas flowing
(Weekend registration includes cost of art materials)
- A fun, social evening full of laughter and connection
(Saturday nights at Bliss Weekends are ALWAYS fun!)
- A workshop focused on intuitive and spiritual development
(Join our expert facilitator for this 1.5 hour morning workshop)
The Food at a Bliss Weekend is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Period.
The food at a Bliss Weekend is quite simply – awesome! We receive countless high-fives, thumbs ups, and gold stars for our food! It is a big part of what makes our weekends special.
The preparation of the food at a Bliss weekend is a bit of a magical affair. We organize the groceries, the facility and the recipes. Then together the group of us work together to create meals that are as good for our bodies as they taste in our mouths. The food is as unprocessed and as “close-to-the-earth” as possible. The menus feature whole, real foods: fruits, vegetables (including tofu/tempeh), grains, pulses, eggs, snacks and treats.
Gaby runs the kitchen throughout the weekend and as an established ‘foodie’ she guides and orchestrates scrumptious vegetarian fare. She also encourages the enjoyment of wine as you cook, if you wish! Gabbing, laughing, chopping, cooking and imbibing – what could be better!
We ask everyone to sign up for one cook OR one clean timeslot. We call it our KARMA HOUR – it’s how we give to each other throughout the weekend.
Where do we get our winter bliss on?
This winter Bliss Weekend will be held at Mansfield Outdoor Centre, located 90-minutes north of downtown Toronto. Mansfield is a privately owned outdoor education centre located on 300 acres of beautiful land including vast forests, fields, streams, and ponds. The Centre opened for cross country skiing in 1974, and was one of the first to offer groomed ski trails in Ontario.
All indoor activities will take place in the The Field Centre at Mansfield – a private, cozy building with shared bedrooms and shared bathrooms.
The accommodations are casual and comfortable, perfect for reconnecting with friends or making new ones. Carpeted bedrooms sleep 4 to 6 women in sturdy bunk beds. The fireplace hearth in the great room beckons on a cold, wintery day. And the breakout rooms are all in this central building – so no need to go outside to get to yoga or workshops!
Deepen Your Experience
Throughout the weekend, we offer the opportunity for you to meet with practitioners privately for 30-minute treatments or sessions. These sessions happen during times of down-time so that you don’t miss workshops or group activities. You make a soul investment of $45 for each private session you attend. Sign up, scheduling and payment for these sessions occurs online and during the weekend itself. The sessions are on a first-come, first-served basis.
Registration for these sessions will open in February:
- Tapping Your Way Out of Superwoman Syndrome
- Empower your inner Goddess
- Esthetics treatments
- Thai Massage
