Description

Experience AllThrive Retreats! Recharge. Refresh. Rejoice.

Led by Jonathan Relucio, Danielle Ancin, and Wendy Martinez


We are excited to introduce you to the AllThrive experience: half-day retreats for people who care about social and environmental justice. With the intention of supporting folks to release stress and trauma in a joyful and nourishing way, AllThrive facilitates embodied mindfulness practices and creative expression in the midst of natural beauty.

You don’t have to be an activist to participate – this retreat is for educators, artists, health professionals, parents, and others who are looking for a space to recharge, reconnect, and deepen their spiritual practice. Come meet us, and experience a taste of AllThrive at our free, kick-off mini-retreat for the community on December 2nd.

Jonathan, Danielle and Wendy, the AllThrive facilitators, have decades of experience supporting the sustainability of other activists, teachers and mental health professionals. Having experienced burnout and secondary trauma in our own lives, we know what works for us to maintain balance and wellbeing while being fully engaged in social justice work. The practices that we share are the same ones we practice, and they allow us to reclaim and integrate the sacred in our lives and work. We honor the roots of our practices and our ancestors, on whose shoulders we stand.

Join us in the forest on December 2nd for a joyful and restorative afternoon of movement, silence and artful play. Cultivate resilience, connection, self-love, and creativity in the presence of a like-hearted community and giant trees. Honor with us the paths carved by our ancestors and teachers. Feel welcomed and celebrated with all of your wisdom, experience and identities.

Stop by our website to learn more about who we are and why we created AllThrive. We hope to see you on December 2nd.





Sample Agenda

  • Arrival, Snacks, Meet Each Other

  • Ice-breakers: Ease into the retreat with warm-up exercises to get to know who you are practicing with.

  • Mindful Hike: Enjoy a guided, meditative hike in the woods.

  • Movement Practice: Rooted in yoga, martial arts, and dance. Deep breathing practices reset the nervous system and release accumulated stress and trauma.

  • Seated or Standing Meditation: In many spiritual traditions, meditation is practiced as the path to freedom. Along that path we gather many fruits of the practice, including increased emotional regulation, self-awareness, well-being, and ability to change negative patterns. The meditation is guided in such a way as to be both accessible to beginners and supportive to experienced meditators as they deepen their practice.

  • Closing Circle: Pause to honor the traditions we have practiced. Participants are invited to reflect on their experience through structured creative arts and dialogue.

  • Hike Back to Picnic Area

  • Break Bread: Savor a warm drink and snack as you laugh and connect with other All Thrive folks in the company of the trees. If the mood is right, feel free to dance as DJ Jonathan spins some uplifting beats.
