Honoring the Mother (Nature & You)
This retreat is for all women, not just mothers. It is focused on connecting to Mother Earth and the mother energy within each of us. You are certainly welcome to attend with your mother or daughter, or friend, or come alone. We can connect you with a roommate if you desire to share a room.
Gray Bear is a lovely site for us to gather and it inherently supports
authenticity, clarity, and ease.
You will leave with a deeper connection to yourself and the Earth.
This will show up in a calm nervous system, clarity on next steps you want to take in your life, and many new practices and tools to support you in living your daily life with more vibrancy, inspiration, and connectivity.

Ayur= Life. Veda= Knowledge. Ayurveda will be explored through sessions on seasonal alignment, as well as individual self-care practices and connecting with the elements around us. All levels of experience are welcome.
From writing to drawing, singing to creative movement, we will explore creativity from various angles as a way to access deeper knowing, play, and connectivity. No prior skill needed in any of these areas.
A mixture of gentle, energizing, restorative, and flow yoga will be offered. Appropriate for all levels. Yoga will be held in the incredible yoga space at Gray Bear and the teachings will be woven into various aspects of the retreat.

Farewell & Departure
"My overall experience from this retreat was I was totally transformed! I tried things that I had never tried and I was open to new possibilities! The deepening from me learning yoga and how to treat myself with self love was something I have never done in my life! I found a new love for art. I have a new sense of belonging and wanting to try NEW THINGS AND EXPLORE MORE. I can’t wait to have another retreat with Hannah and my soul sisters!"

Adam Schumaker and Diann Fuller are the visionaries behind Gray Bear Lodge. When Hannah was 16, she attended her first yoga class, and Diann was the teacher.
Who knew that a seed was first planted in that first class that would blossom into leading a retreat at Gray Bear 30 years later!
The time has come for the Heartfelt Wellbeing community to experience Gray Bear!
Diann continues to teach yoga and is an inspiring and insightful teacher. Adam is a skilled bodyworker, the warm papa-bear behind the retreat center. Gray Bear is located on Adam's family land. The love, spirit, and intention that both Diann and Adam have poured into Gray Bear is obvious in the energy of the place.
It feels very special for Hannah to be leading this retreat at Gray Bear for Mother's Day weekend. We all hope you can join us!
(all options include all meals, access to facilities, and all sessions with Hannah)
"This retreat experience was unlike any that I ever have participated in!!
In addition to being in such a lovely place, I was able to soak in even more of Hannah's wisdom, guidance and teachings through the lens of Ayurveda and her Yoga/meditation practices. The offerings were very well organized, while leaving time for self-reflection and play ;) I highly recommend these opportunities to everyone and I look forward to additional retreats with Hannah in the future!!"
