Restore your Natural Rhythms
for Increased Energy, Focus & Vitality
Jan 20-Mar 16, 2020
A 9-week Winter Wellness program to help Renew your energy, Balance your Adrenals and hormones, and Restore your Natural rhythms for increased focus, creativity, and vitality.
Rites of Wellbeing:
Winter is a time for deep nourishment and reflection. It is a season of restoration, repair, rebuilding, replenishing reserves, renewing resources. In short, it is the time to Restore the Roots of health.
As we enter this new decade, we are challenged to re-evaluate our foundations, to eliminate old habits, patterns, and beliefs that are limiting our growth and negatively impacting our health. It is crucial we ask ourselves where we will be in 5-10 years if we continue on our current path.
2020 is a year for building, for establishing solid framework, for growth that is rooted in the stability of deep connections: this is the year to create a base upon which we can build long lasting health in all areas of our lives.
With that in mind, we are excited to offer this Community Winter Wellness Program where we will work together to learn, to heal, and to rebuild the foundations of health over the course of 9 weeks.
Our focus for this season is on Restoring the Root, which corresponds to balancing our Adrenal and Stress Response which forms a fundamental part of the foundation of our health and affects nearly every major body system.
With that objective in mind, and in heart, we'll be covering the following fundamentals:
- Adrenal Healthy nutrition
- Restorative exercise
- Stress Management
- Sleep, Rest and Relaxation
- Hormone balancing
- Healing the Gut
- Elimination of Toxins
- Herbs and supplements for Adrenal and stress support
- Mental/Emotional wellbeing
- Inner Beauty rituals
- Community Care
The program runs 9 weeks and offers two options:
1) Hybrid Live/Online or
2) Online Only
Classes will be recorded and available for viewing online 48 hours after they take place live. Both options include a pre-recorded 4 week Adrenal Restore online program that parallels the live meetings and classes, and provides weekly videos which create the framework for the core elements of the program: nutrition, exercise, stress management, and rest.
We have been successfully running this program online for the last several years, and are excited to offer a hybrid live/online version in our new healing space in Ojai. This provides additional value to our online only participants as well, as you will have access to weekly group meetings with Q&A, and yoga/meditation classes which will be available to view at your convenience. Our goal is to make this available to as many people as possible in our community, and with that in mind we have deeply discounted the enrollment rates, so please consider joining us!
Get to the Root
True healing is not about a quick fix, a magic pill, or even the latest "cleanse." To get to the root of our health issues, we need to transform our lives, which requires gradual changes to multiple aspects of our way of living.
The best, and perhaps only way to do this is to have guidance, accountability, community support, and the patience and persistence required to establish new, positive, healthy behaviors that promote lasting health. Health is a long term investment, but the payoff comes in miraculous multiples. Join us for the journey home to true health which we call the Rites of Wellbeing.
Restore your Natural Rhytms
Winter Wellness is part 1 of a 4 season program designed to bring us back into balance with the rhythms of nature.
Rites are traditions, customs, habits, rituals, and practices that mark the passage of time and help us to maintain right relationship with ourselves, our environment, and our community.
Each season we are invited to synchronize our efforts and our lifestyle with the movement of nature in order to create health and a sense of wellbeing.
Wellbeing is a state of wellness that includes health in our physical, emotional and spiritual lives, and also a dynamic connection to our deepest values in our everyday activities.
If you have been feeling any of the following, this program is for you:
- Tired and wired
- Dependent on caffeine
- Bloated and heavy
- Brain fog and poor memory
- Mood swings
- Low to no energy
This program may help you to Restore:
- Abundant energy and vitality
- Calm and relaxed mind
- Digestive regularity
- Positive mood
- Balanced hormonal rhythms
- Healthy weight and body image
- Restful Sleep cycle
- Creativity and Inspiration
- Nourishing relationships
- Grounded presence in your body
- Inner peace
- Sense of purpose and direction
Our mission with this annual cycle of seasonal programs is to lay the groundwork for true Community Care. Research has shown that the progress made through healing in a group environment far exceeds what is possible on our own.
Without the foundation of a healthy community, self care and lasting health is difficult if not impossible. Join us as we embark on the journey of recreating right relationship to our bodies, our environment, and most importantly, our spirit.

We are offering this program at an extremely discounted rate to honor the beginning of something much greater than a simple online program or even a group cleanse. This is truly the root system for a new model of health care, a bridge between eastern and western medicine, traditional healing, functional medicine, and true community care. We invite you to be a part of creating this strong foundation for the individual, community, and planetary wellness through the Rites of Wellbeing.
