Healing from the Inside-Out - Return to balance, alignment and well-being.  

L O C A T I O N - Join us in the gentle rolling hills, expansive landscape and clean air of the Kettle Moraine countryside of Southern Wisconsin. This heart-warming Retreat Center is set amidst the patterned fields of our Heartland's farmland. Think vast spaces of earth and sky, green green green and a serene sense of nature which resonates "well-being". Even the drive to the center is soothing, calming, a relief from the hubbub of a city. Stars seem to pop out from a clear, dark night sky. With 100 acres of trails, an outdoor labyrinth, a beach and pond for swimming and nearby spots of interest to explore on our time off - this location is ideal. June dates offer an opportunity to enjoy a Midwestern almost-summer solstice glow and the aura of summer vacation.

Ideal for our Heartland Residential.


L E A R N I N G - The rhythms, sounds, sights and fresh air of nature have an effect. It enhances our ability to simply "be", present to flow, to expand and refine our skill in sensing, listening to and engaging the power of our nature, our inner wisdom, healing responses, our inner grace. YES!

This Heartland Residential will be wonderful for immersing ourselves in Ortho-Bionomy beyond technique, free of distractions and the busy-busy of our lives. We will have flexibility in class timing, creative play, and will take time off for exploring the area. We'll work and play with concepts, exercises and techniques through the phases, the reflexes, through the classes, and the self-care practice of this healing art. Creative, new ways of applying the principles arise as we explore "meeting the person where they are."  Ann will share some of her latest favorites, new developments and ever-increasingly amazing stories of healing. We'll all share our success stories, laugh and play. Have I mentioned food yet?

E M P O W E R E D - This Residential is also designed to empower participants by creating a safe and supportive environment for gaining a deeper awareness, understanding and appreciation of ourselves and human nature. We'll reflect on universal principles as applied to physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of ourselves and our lives. Some science and simple innovative practices for building self-esteem, lifting self-confidence and changing limiting beliefs will be shared and experienced. Creatively applying these principles and tried-and-true practices in our everyday lives not only takes our practice and business to the next level, it takes each of us to a deeper appreciation of our uniqueness, balances and supports us in continually evolving with humility, compassion and grace. Simple principles, profound results!

Being more centered and comfortable with our unique selves transforms everything.

Y O U shine. You R O C K !
