Healthy Beginnings

Roger Gabriel of The Chopra Center Delivering Keynote Speech at Wellness Weekend

Retreat to be held November 11 and 12 as part of the Sierra Soul series of wellness events

Roger’s speech will offer valuable insight into Karma and its effects on our relationships, goals and achievements. Karma determines how we are treated in a next existence based on our actions of this existence. Regardless of philosophy and/or faith, Roger’s keynote will offer valuable insights into the different types of Karma and how it impacts life. He will offer training tools to meditation and how to live a mindful life.

Wellness Weekend is a unique event that will feature two full days of workshops, seminars and classes that combine a unique fusion of Eastern and Western medicine, philosophy and practice. Wellness Weekend was formerly Women’s Wellness Weekend, and this year Granlibakken invites both men and women alike, allowing for a broader scope of topics and experiences. Granlibakken has also expanded the schedule, including a plethora of activity and meditation classes, as well as the traditional seminars and workshops that this event is known for.

Wellness Weekend attendees will enjoy Granlibakken’s unparalleled setting as well as a unique event that combines education, yoga, movement and meditation classes, and a vibrant marketplace into two soulful days. Educational seminars will cover a variety of subjects, ranging from GMO foods to mental health. A robust schedule of activity classes is designed to rejuvenate the body and the mind, with daily yoga classes as well as energy-work and meditation.

The weekend fee to attend Wellness Weekend is $132, which includes daily meals, as well as all workshops and socials. Lodging is available at a special weekend package rate of $116 per night for double-occupancy or $179 per night for single-occupancy, not including tax and service charges.
