Feed Your Soul Ayurveda & Yoga Retreat – Winter

Métis means a person who self-identifies as Métis, is distinct from other Indigenous peoples, is of Historic Nation ancestry, and is accepted by the Métis Nation.”

What does it mean to be of Historic Métis Nation ancestry? One must have an ancestral connection to the historic Métis community.  This is more than proving that one has an ever-so-great “Indian” ancestor.  The requirement is for an ancestral connection to a “Métis” ancestor.  Further, that Métis ancestor must have lived, used and occupied the Historic Métis Nation Homeland.

Borrowed from the document “Who are the Métis in the Métis National Council? By Jean Teillet

We look forward to showing you around the guest house.  You will appreciate the details in the rooms and décor.  Wonder around the land with us, along the Whitemouth River and learn about medicinal plants and wild edibles.

Coming in the fall of 2020, the river round house and teaching lodge will be an exclusive off-grid experience for those who truly want to disconnect.  The round house sits adjacent to the sweat lodge that was gifted to the land by Creator under the guidance of elder, Dennis Morrison (Bebahmoytung)

Spiritual Caregiver, Muskrat-Ode-dam (Clan).

“Ahh. Take a slow, deep breath…winter is here. Everywhere around you the natural world is withdrawing, going dormant, and embracing a long, dark, season of slumber. The stillness that characterizes winter signals us to redirect our own energies inward. It is a time to rest and reflect. Winter is considered to be a kapha season with strong vata undertones. However, in the Canadian Prairies, vata is a strong component of winter. So overall, it is recommended to follow kapha and vata pacifying guidelines during winter.

Ayurveda teaches us that like increases like and that opposites balance. The seasons are characterized by the cycles of vata, pitta, and kapha. Maintaining good health and balance during all four seasons requires living in harmony with the doshic cycles. The food we eat, the type and amount of exercise we do and the clothes we wear, should all correspond to the seasons.
