Nestled in the Mountains

THE PERFECT RETREAT

Seven Springs is a beautiful retreat center featuring seven natural springs on 126 acres of family-owned land in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains near Maryville, Tennessee. It is the perfect location to unplug from the external world and reconnect to the rhythms of Nature.

The PERFECT Retreat extends an invitation for anyone (and especially for perfectionists) to quiet down the outer volume of life...and to listen closely within. Our weekend includes a curated itinerary of reflective experiences directed toward cultivating wholehearted living, set in a serene environment.

 

“Here's what is truly at the heart of wholeheartedness: Worthy now.

Not if, not when. We're worthy of love and belonging now. Right this minute. As is.” 
― Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection

PRACTICE

BREATHE. REFLECT. BE.

Enjoy daily Yoga classes, workshops, and experiential sessions oriented toward self-acceptance. Greet the sunrise with āsana and journaling. Express your inner world through art. Immerse yourself in the healing sights and sounds of the forest. Rest in quiet solitude. Receive support from the group.

 

Get in touch with a quiet internal voice that knows - you are already perfect.
