I caught the Happy Virus last night.  When I was out singing and dancing under the stars.  It is remarkably contagious.  So, Kiss Me.

Vibrance Thanksgiving Retreat:

Elemental Embodiment

 

We invite you, your family and friends to join The Vibrance Collective founding faculty (Ashley, Daphne, & Ellen) on the magical island of Kaua'i this Thanksgiving, as we start a new Holiday tradition of bringing together our chosen Ohana (family) to: Celebrate, Recalibrate and Bring Amplitude to our Gratitude.

 Get ready for a week of VIBRANCE Expressive arts: movement meditation, writing, music & vocal expression, elemental Astrological talks, healing touch sessions, live music concerts and more guided our Vibrant team with special guest teachers.

Special guest, Debra Silverman will offer Astrology talks based on her body of work focused on the Four elements: Earth, Water, Fire and Air.  The Vibrance Collective will add the Fifth element, Ether. These Five elements are present all around and within you.  They are essential to all life.  You and the universe are formed by these Five elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether.  When they are in balance and you are in right relationship and conversation with them, your energy and well-being increase.

Immerse and nourish yourself in the Elemental world of Kaua'i. Envision yourself swimming in the healing waters, dancing on the sand and soaking up the sun with new and old friends as we join together (safely) in community once again!

The Vibrance Collective

The Vibrance Collective founding members are Ashley Johnson, Daphne Tse and Ellen Watson.  We bring together a collective of dedicated artists, leaders, and embodiment teachers whose mission is to inspire you to find joy, self-expression and radiant health through integrative sonic and somatic practices.  We believe that through movement, music, breath, touch, sound, song,  visualization and affirmation,  we can transform ourselves, our relationships, our communities and our planet. Together, we are the bridge between elemental embodiment and effective ecological stewardship.

 

Who is Debra?

Debra Silverman, MA, and Founder of Meet The Stars and Debra Silverman Astrology, joins Ashley, Daphne, and Ellen, for our Thanksgiving Retreat: Elemental Embodiment. Debra’s good humored, wise counsel and depth of understanding of cosmological energies combine in a riveting download relevant to each and every one of us. Debra joins us daily for an inspiring, grounding and uplifting morning class, along with The Vibrance Collective artists for dancing with and embodying each of the Five elements and Eight chakras.

What is Vibrance?

Vibrance is an Expressive arts practice designed to facilitate both physical and metaphysical fitness through embodied movement, music, meditation, breath, touch, sound, song, poetry, writing, visualization and affirmation.

 

Daily Flow:

Our mornings will include an elemental meditation and teaching by Debra Silverman followed by an embodiment session that brings the wisdom of the elements down from the mind into the body.  The morning concludes with an abundant wellness brunch at the Grand Hyatt with an ocean view.

After a midday restorative break for Sea, Swim, Spa, Sun and Rest we gather for experiential sessions in and with the elements.   We will be in the ocean, hiking the cliffs, singing by the fire, giving thanks under the moon, and learning from local traditions.

Evenings, aside from Thanksgiving Night, are free time to enjoy the resort or going out to explore.  Sunset calls to the western beach, a lovely 20 - 30 minute walk or short bike ride.  Wonderful restaurants dot the south shores of Kaua'i.  We can hop on the Island Bus, for a sunset ride with delivery to restaurant of choice.

Embodying the Five Elements:

Prepare to be immersed in the Elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether, as we align with the natural world and discover our own true nature.  May we be rooted to the earth, as fluid as water, cut cleanly through stagnation as a knife, ignited by our inner fire, and as a feather on the breath of God.   

We will literally be planting ourselves in the earth, the fish and turtles will be our dance partners, the ceremonial fires become our allies as we burn through layers of disconnection and turn ourselves into the song that sings each of us and the world AWAKE.
