After a long pause and deep hibernation, we know everyone is ready to be together in person again to reconnect and sense the power of community. We are delighted to announce the perfect Summer’s End intimate gathering hosted by the founders of VIBRANCE, Ellen Watson, Ashley Johnson and Daphne Tse offering their multitude of modalities from movement meditation to sounding and singing to writing and ritual immersed in the majestic and healing power of the Rocky Mountains.

Come join the vibrant community at River’s Grace, a home place sanctuary on the banks of the St. Vrain river in Lyons, CO, for a week of REUNION.  Reunite with your voice and body through dance and song.  Renew your spirit in nature with hikes in the mountains and play time in the river.  Rejoice in community as we celebrate the opportunity to be together again as we celebrate with the abundance of the Full Moon. 

Deeper Description:  This Vibrance Retreat is the first in person event we are planning to host in 2021 and is designed to be an intimate reunion of our community immersed in the majestic beauty of Colorado in an open air and outdoor space.   

Each Day we will be exploring the Foundations of the Vibrance practice and the pillars of our Vibrant Life Blueprint: 

V - Vocalization, I - Intention and Inspiration, B - Breathwork, R - Resonance & Reciprocity, A - Alignment, N - Nourishment, C - Connection, and E - Embodiment.  

Our Vibrance retreat days and evenings will offer a diverse and rich experience of the embodied arts including:

  • Riverside morning meditations
  • Restorative touch and healing sessions 
  • Nature hikes in foothills of the Rockies

This is a perfect opportunity to give yourself the space to refill your cup, refresh your  spirit,  immerse in nature and reconnect with a global vibrant community to begin again.   We will rest, renew, and REJOICE on the land and in the water, in circle, with self, and with others.  

We look forward to welcoming YOU to our VIBRANT community as we learn and grow together.
