Set against the picturesque backdrop of Greenport Harbor, Karen begins our retreat with an introduction to SoulCollage®, an intuitive collage method inspired by Seena Frost. Guiding you on an enlightening path of self-reflection. You'll engage deeply as you choose evocative images, create one-of-a-kind collage cards, and reflect on them. Attendees will discover personal insights and narratives through thoughtful contemplation and shared dialogues. This portion of the session concludes by honoring the dedication and insights gained.


As our journey heads towards its grand finale, Dr. LoPresti introduces you to revitalizing breathing techniques, Tai Chi's elegance, and Qigong's healing practices. Diving into this oasis of techniques tailored to combat stress and embrace the transformational essence of mindful self-healing. Culminating with a tranquil Guided Qigong Meditation, you'll leave imbued with serenity, clarity, and a renewed spirit.
