Each day at the http://OBXSpringRetreat.com we shall observe the five elements within the human body.
Everyday in our lives, we nourish ourselves with foods from the Earth, and eventually, our body returns to the earthly matter from which it came.
Life sustaining nectar, water makes up more than 70 percent of our total body mass. Fire provides the body with heat and radiant energy and exists within all metabolic and chemical actions. Air flows freely throughout the body, giving movement to biological functions and feeding every cell with oxygen. Space is ever-present, humbly residing in the background, providing the other elements with an opportunity to interact in this way.
Each Day at the Retreat has an Element that is explored and celebrated through delicious cuisine, yoga, art and activities.
