Nervous System Reset with Nicholas Pratley

A three-night, four-day program:
October 11 – 14

Join us for a three-night, four-day retreat program hosted by Nicholas Pratley – licensed Neuro-Linguistic Programming Therapist, Master Energy Practitioner, Breathwork Expert, and Founder of SP8CE – to recode your mind, body, and energy.

As a culture, we are overstimulated and overstressed. This immersive four-day program, you support you with tools to unplug from chaos and plug into the natural wisdom that emerges through stillness. Participants will discover the power of the vagus nerve, nervous system, and heart, experiencing deep restoration. This your opportunity to destress, cleanse and rest. All things you deserve.

Nicholas says, “Slowing down allows the natural intelligence of our very sophisticated nervous system to come online. We need to create the environment so that it can do what it’s designed to do: find balance. When it comes to optimizing our health, there’s a way to activate our power to heal and that’s by listening deeply to the symptoms that show up in our bodies. This is why creating space and slowing down is crucial. Symptoms reveal root causes, which is where the truth lives, and that is energetic health. After all, it’s not what we are doing, it’s the way we are doing it.”

The retreat encompasses more than a dozen group experiences personally designed by Nicholas, incorporating biofield breathwork and energy medicine, sound healing, grounding practices, mindful rituals and reflective satsangs. As well as free time to enjoy private contemplation and integration. The program is enhanced with daily wellness programming led by the team at Shou Sugi Ban House and carefully selected treatments to amplify the program.

In addition, you will enjoy daily communal hydrotherapy and thermal suite rituals, three plant-forward meals to help nourish and ground the body and mind, as well as take home gifts from Nicholas for ongoing support. Each guest will also receive a $750 Spa and Wellness credit to be used towards spa and healing arts sessions of your choice.
