Four Elements Retreat

Make new friends while exploring the four elements during a summer retreat at the enchanting Soulful Prairies.

Earth, water, air and fire – four elements essential to life – will be explored and practiced during a day-long retreat at Soulful Prairies in Woodstock called Honoring the Four Elements Within.

The July 23 women’s retreat, set in a peaceful 80-acre property, promises to connect, clear, unveil and awaken.

The day-long event will begin with the Aquarian Sadhana mantras, chanting and meditation to set the stage for the day’s element-themed activities, beginning with water.

Water is our current, and Veronica Ruiz will be leading the element of water – working on letting go through creative expression.

Next, air is our fuel. The air element will be led by me where we will experience our connection to the pranic body through breath work, Kundalini Yoga, meditation and gong sound healing.

Third, earth is our stability and Linda Bruce, Soulful Prairies owner and Equine Gestalt Coach, will facilitate this element where we’ll partner with horses to find gratitude of the gifts of the earth.

The day will come to a close with a fabulous vegetarian dinner with newfound friends followed by a celebration around the bonfire to connect with the final element of fire, which combines all elements to ignite our feminine power.

The retreat is $111 prepaid or $121 at the door. To register, contact Lisa at or 847.867.8630

“The Prairie is the place of Peace

Going home to the place of simplicity

A place of dreaming and imagination.

Gather with women to connect with your individuality.”
