Reconnect with your mind, body & spirit

Saturday, July 20th, 2024
2:00 - 8:30 pm
Hume, Virginia




In the midst of life’s never-ending hustle, where we’re constantly juggling responsibilities and facing challenges, it’s far too easy to lose touch with our inner power and resilience. We get so caught up in the day-to-day grind that we forget to nurture the most important relationship we have – the one with ourselves.


At the Teal Center, we deeply believe that every single one of us deserves a chance to take a step back, rebuild our inner resources, and remember who we truly are.


This is an invitation to pause, to breathe, and to remember that no matter what life throws our way, we have the strength within us to rise above it all.

This retreat is designed to provide a nurturing space where you can escape the hectic pace of everyday life and truly focus on your well-being.

Picture this: a charming house, surrounded by the tranquil beauty of Hume, Virginia, a hidden gem just a little over an hour’s drive from the hustle and bustle of Arlington. This is the home of Brenda Teal, the visionary founder and owner of the Teal Center. With an open heart and a deep commitment to fostering transformation, Brenda has graciously opened the doors of her private residence for this special occasion.

Step into a sacred space, where you can rediscover the strength and resilience that have always been within you.


Engage your body and spirit with a rejuvenating Qi Gong session

Release stress and build inner peace with a guided breathwork workshop

Enjoy a nourishing dinner, fostering a sense of community and connection.

Our full moon drum circle will allow you to let go of what no longer serves you, and embrace the strength that lies within.

It’s all too common to find ourselves disconnected from our inner reservoir of strength and resilience. We become so caught up in the external noise that we forget to listen to the wisdom within.

It's time to change that.

Connect with Nature

Wellness isn't just about massages, although we always love those! It's also about feeling the rhythms of nature and opening your mind and heart to the beauty of it all. As you wander along the meditation trail, take a moment to pause, to breathe deeply, and to simply be.

At the end of the trail, you'll find yourself standing at the entrance of a beautiful labyrinth, a sacred space for contemplation and self-reflection. As you step into the labyrinth, consider setting an intention for your journey through the retreat.

Tap into the ancient wisdom of Qi Gong

Be guided through a series of gentle movements, each designed to awaken the flow of vital energy within your body.

As you move through the exercises, you'll learn to synchronize your breath with each motion, creating a powerful connection between your physical and energetic being.

The true potential of your breath

Resilience is the ability to bounce back from life's challenges, to adapt and grow in the face of adversity. And do you know what one of the most powerful tools for building resilience is? Your breath.

It's not just about keeping us alive.


We'll come together as a community to break bread and share in the joy of a nourishing meal. This is a sacred time, a moment to pause and reflect on the day we've undertaken together.

Under the light of the full moon

The drum circle invites you to step into a realm of self-expression and a deep sense of freedom.

With each strike of the drum, you are reclaiming your power, your voice, and your inherent resilience. You are reminded that, no matter what life may throw your way, you have the capacity to rise above, to heal, and to thrive.
