Sylvia Olney - Bemidji, MN, retreat happening on July 16th, 2015

Life in the US today exacts a steep cost in terms of chronic stress which contributes to every form of illness as well as alienation from ourselves and others.  And yet, the knowledge for the creation of wellness, personal integration, and the experience of community and the sacred exists closer to ourselves than we might imagine!

Come spend a day with Dr. Sylvia Olney, Minnesota state licensed psychotherapist, healer, and author, in a country setting in rural Minnesota, and experience a healing day of instruction and practice in mindful awareness, stress reduction, and inspiration.  Come explore the relationship between personal mind-body integration and the sacred.

Located fifteen minutes outside of Grand Rapids on a small, quiet lake, the setting for this day of retreat, at the home of a friend of Sylvia’s, has all the features of a day retreat location:  gentle walking meditation paths in beautiful deciduous woods and around spacious lawns, as well as amenities to host a small group of up to ten people looking for a day of recovery from urban and other stresses.
