A One-Day Retreat to Disconnect from the World and Reconnect to Yourself
We’re all confronted with the “too many people, too little time, too much to do” syndrome of everyday life, which can leave us feeling depleted, overwhelmed, and disconnected. Are you feeling drained? Fragmented? Lost? Is life just not FUN anymore? It's time for a reset!
What exactly is a reset? On most technical devices, it means going back to the original settings – or returning to the starting place. In this case, we're talking about getting back to your sense of YOU that is separate from everything you do. It's the YOU that is concerned with BEING rather than DOING. It's who YOU ARE. It's your starting place. When you push your reset button, you again feel connected to yourself, and again feel able to take charge of what's happening in your life. You get on the front end instead of the back end of things. You can be proactive instead of reactive. You can breathe. And life is FUN again!
During this one-day retreat, you will gain the tools, support, and plans you need for connecting with your best self – across mind, body, emotion, and soul.
The retreat will include four one-hour workshops lead by highly-respected facilitators of The Love & Light Institute. The four sessions will focus on connecting you with each element individually – mind, body, emotion, and soul – while also reconnecting each element to each other.

When & Where
The Love & Light Institute
Welcome to The Love & Light Institute. We are a non-profit learning environment that provides an integrated approach to understanding our mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual selves – and inspiring authentic wholeness living.
First of all, what is wholeness living? There is an Indian proverb that says: “Everyone is a house with four rooms – a physical, a mental, an emotional, and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but unless we go into every room everyday, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.”
When we start to rely on one area over the others, we create the feeling of imbalance and need. Being in a state of wholeness allows us to experience total unity between the mind, body, emotion and soul.
To support your wholeness living, We have created a user-friendly library of classes that highlight what you want to learn, in the style you want to learn it.
We respect your investment. We want you to feel limitless in your growth. We keep our class and programs costs low by offering different styles of learning – from written PDF, to pre-recorded video, to live-streaming video and in-person classes.
We respect your time. Life is busy – but this no longer has to be an excuse. We can travel wherever your computer or mobile device is, and keep your classes organized in your online profile.
We understand the value of community. We know how important community is when you are learning and growing. Our web site offers online forums that help you stay in touch with other learners and teachers throughout your education. You can even meet your fellow online learners at our weekend workshops here in Atlanta.
And we help you take your new knowledge and incorporate it into your world through community give-back projects.
We hope you’ll join us. Come cultivate greater health, joy, and peace – both at home and in the world.
