Mindfulness Trip

About This Trip

on the River with Sean D’Amboise – July 27-30, 2018

Mind + Body + Nature immersion on the Green River through Lodore Canyon

A blissful weekend of meditation, mindful movement, hiking, unrivaled natural beauty, and exploration awaits us in Lodore Canyon. This three-night, four-day river retreat will focus on awakening self-compassion and finding the deepest peace within ourselves, with freedom from our usual distractions. Each day we will be discovering ways on how start or improve your sitting and walking meditations. We will be embodying movement gestures themed in grounding, breathing and awareness. The movement lessons will be simple, relaxing, so prepare yourself for a trip of ease and awakening.

Trip spots are limited for those 18 years and up.

Holiday river guide alumni, Sean D’Amboise is an all around warm-hearted kind of guy and currently teaches Pilates in Brunswick, Maine. After years of living in the West and teaching Pilates in both Utah and Idaho we are blessed to have him return to Holiday River Expeditions for a trip that will awaken your sense of being. Sean is currently enrolled in a 3 year mentorship program called The Embodied Life®, based in Northern California. The program is an approach to human transformation based on the integration of meditation, Feldenkrais® movement and self-inquiry. Come as you are and saturate your world with laughter, innate beauty, 5 star meals and your presence.

The Green River cuts like a knife through Lodore Canyon from the top of Dinosaur National Monument through its heart. At the confluence with the Yampa river this trip takes you through Echo Park & Whirlpool Canyon before floating you into Island Park.  Hold on tight for the last 8 miles of whitewater through the center of a mountain before reaching the Split Mountain takeout.
