Every year during Easter weekend, Healing Hands School of Holistic Health, (Healing Hands) offers a Holistic Living Retreat to students, said Harmony Curtiss, Director for Healing Hands– Laguna Hills. “Hosted by school Founders, Paula and Neha Curtiss, the Retreat offers students the opportunity to retreat from the demands of daily life and affords time for introspection. Taking a holistic approach to life, health and healing requires seeing ourselves as an integrated whole; mind, body and Spirit. This Retreat helps to facilitate that goal. All Healing Hands students and Alumni are welcome and encouraged to bring their friends and family”, she added.
The Holistic Living Retreat ran from 9am on Saturday, March 31st through 4pm on Sunday, April 1st, 2018 and was attended by over 60 guests. Dozens of Students gathered in a beautiful, privately owned and undeveloped Canyon in the San Diego area. Without the modern conveniences of home, students were immersed in nature, enjoyed nutritious meals, slept under the stars, and experienced two days of fun, learning, and personal growth.
Throughout the weekend, Paula, Neha and Staff engaged students in a variety of holistic practices. These included Yoga, Tai Chi, Breath Therapy and Meditation. Creative and self-expressive activities like singing, playing musical instruments, tie-dying, beadwork, and crafting were also encouraged. The goal of the weekend was to help students experience the peace and well-being that comes from living a balanced, health-conscious life.
For some students, Healing Hands Holistic Retreat served as an opportunity to get away from the demands of daily living and gain clarity about their challenges, or life’s purpose. For others it was more about connecting with like-minded people, sharing experiences and feelings and nurturing a sense of belonging. Regardless of the student’s motivation, those who enrolled in this course came away with 20 educational credits and a renewed appreciation for the serenity of nature.
