Giving back

We’re thrilled to partner up with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) - Washtenaw County through Bliss Retreat. NAMI - Washtenaw County is a peer-led, grassroots organization offering several educational programs to help support mental health in our community.

With your help, we’ll donate a portion of Bliss Retreat ticket sales to NAMI’s “Ending the Silence”—a program (traveling to local schools and community events) educating students, parents, and teachers about early signs of mental health conditions and how to get help. Young adults also share their experience with mental health—a great conversation opener to connect peers who can relate and give support.

Background

The benefits of mindfulness, yoga, and meditation on mental health have been studied for many years. Broadly, these benefits relate to calming the heart rate and activating the parasympathetic nervous system—which has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety, among other things.

Bliss Retreat was created on premise to give back to our community by helping retreat guests explore ways to find inner calm the day of, and also help support a local mental health organization.
