Time for yourself
We can customize your retreat with the following techniques to bring self awareness through information and experiential discovery. We are providing this list of Associate Practitioners and their modalities for your consideration. We would like to make your stay at Namaste Retreat interesting and fun by stretching your body, expanding your mind, and nourishing your soul. By applying universal truths and spiritual principals you learn to release negative belief patterns and enjoy self discovery.

Alternative Health and Wellness Techniques
Benefits of Energy Healing: Energy Healing is a mind-body modality and as such accelerates personal growth. An effective therapy in and of itself, Energy Healing can be utilized in conjunction with or as an adjunct to both medical and non-medical therapies. Using this modality, the healer works directly with the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of the energy body to facilitate the healing and release of blocked and distorted energy patterns effectively restoring the body’s natural balance. This results in a greater sense of well being, peace, and calmness as well as the release of distress and disease on multiple levels.
Reiki: involves the transfer of energy from practitioner to patient to enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. Reiki utilizes specific techniques for restoring and balancing the natural life force energy within the body. It is a holistic, natural, hands-on energy healing system that touches on all levels: body, mind, and spirit.
Cranial Sacral Technique is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the cranial sacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the cranial sacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. By complementing the body's natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

H.E.A.R.T. (Holistic Energy Activation & Realignment Therapy) is an innovative hands-on energy therapy that integrates the wisdom of the Ancients. Basic H.E.A.R.T. achieves balance through the use of therapeutic essential oils, activation of meridian points, reflexology of the feet and hands, specific breathing patterns, toning, cranial sacral balancing, auricular therapy, balancing of reflex points with chakra points, and polarity balancing.
Dowsing for the body, mind, and spirit. Dowsing or radiesthesia, is the art of using an instrument, such as a pendulum, to access information from inner intelligence not directly available to the conscious mind. Energy may be transferred, neutralized, transmuted and transformed and trapped emotions may be released. Releasing trapped emotions often result in the sudden disappearance of physical problems, self-sabotage, and recurring relationship difficulties. The fundamental belief behind dowsing is that everything emits radiation. A pendulum serves as a medium connecting the dowser and an energetic source, such as the other's person unconscious. The pendulum then responds in a certain way in which the dowser then interprets. It's a healing art that has served mankind for over seven thousand years.
Matrix Energetics is a state of being, a consciousness shift, not a technique. We embody the Matrix morphic field or consciousness to tap into the field desiring change and hold that state of the quantum wave of transformational change. Quantum physics is based on the concept that we are all one with the universe and connected together with the Zero Point energy field. By holding sacred space and interacting with this field we draw on the power of the "force" and have freedom to choose a different outcome.
The Emotion Code, created by Dr. Bradley Nelson, is a powerful and simple way to rid yourself of unseen baggage. Releasing trapped emotions often result in the sudden disappearance of physical problems, self-sabotage, and recurring relationship difficulties.
Face Reading with Grace : Face Reading is a modern term for an ancient personality profiling system called Physiognomy. Every feature on the face has its own distinct interpretation, taking in consideration of size, shape, location and relationship of each feature to other parts of the face. Coping skills, challenges, gifts, life experiences are some of the areas that are revealed. Consider that we are designed, first with genetics, then with influences on how to perceive the world, and add the emotional relationship to all your life experiences. The lines that develop in the face are emotion etched in the face over time. The nose reveals the way you carry responsibility, the eyes are intimacy, the chin is power, and so on. The Face Reading will reveal truths about you, and leave you more knowledgeable and in the place to truly embrace who you have become.
