“I have had to learn to invite my broken heart to dine with me at the table. It is meaningless to run now. My broken heart is not a judgment or a crime. It is a detailed record of how I have tried to meet the violence of the world with as much openness as possible.”
-Lama Rod Owens, ‘Love and Rage: The Path of Liberation through Anger’
About the program:
So much is taking place in this world, and so much is taking place in each of our personal lives. The wide range of human emotions is vast, and I want you to know that you have the capacity to hold, release, and honor it all. And you do not need to go it alone.

Yokasta’s quote reflecting the flavor of the retreat:
“They say grief is never done, it’s ongoing and comes in cycles; yet we still need intentional spaces to process it. Kasa 404 Integrative Wellness Events and Day Retreats aim to provide spaces to process grief while also collectively and in solitude focus on regenerative practices, deep rest, integrative wellness, and holistic nourishment.
Sometimes we do not know what to do with the information our bodies, mind, spirit, and emotions give us. So let’s break it down and start by listening to our own grief since it corresponds with autumn in 5 Element Chinese Medicine. Give yourself the opportunity to be accompanied in sensing your rage and grief (in its most expansive definition) and kindly listen to yourself and your body’s wisdom, as self-love comes first – and this is the beginning of self-care.”
