Yoga and Sound Immersion


deep healing • deep rest  • deep connection

with Susan and Shawn DeRyder

August 9 – 11, 2019

Join Susan and Shawn for a weekend of yoga and sound healing in a location that inspires the soul and provokes the imagination.

Raven Crest Botanicals is an herbal wonderland that will hold us as we restore and rebalance every part of our being. We will come together for daily yoga and sound healing experiences, embraced by the forest in a beautiful open air studio.

There will be opportunity for you to explore the pristine surroundings of the natural world on this magical 300 acre property which opens doors to new levels of healing.
