The Love & Light Institute's Summer Retreat: Pause. Play. Express.
A relaxing weekend getaway to help you unwind and feel refreshed.
This 1.5-day wellness retreat is designed for relaxation, personal reflection and renewal. We invite you to pause so you may calm your busy mind, rejuvenate your sense of play so you may find your sense of joy, and express yourself so you may find connection within and around yourself.
Based on your feedback from our first retreat, we have designed longer class sessions so we can take a deeper dive into the subject matter and the experience of each topic.
You will leave the weekend with a sense of lightness and a depth of connection to carry you through your busy normal schedule.
- Pause creates momentum.
- Play sustains our natural wonder.
- Expression creates connection to self and others.
During this 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 a series of workshops led by highly-respected facilitators of The Love & Light Institute. The 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.
