Make Energy Work for you. (Nora).  Learn about the aura, meridians, and chakras through which flows our life force energy.  Learn a technique to clear and balance the energy field of friends, family, pets as well as plants. All disease, whether physical, emotional, mental or spiritual is caused by a disruption in our energy field.  This workshop will give you a good foundation and understanding of energy and how to make it work for you.

Being Kind and Compassionate Toward Ourselves. (Brenda).  If you feel there is a part of yourself that is unkind to yourself, you are ready for this session. Many of us have this inner critic lurking in our subconscious. It is possible to reduce the impact of this voice and enable other more constructive voices to find their place. We will identify how this voice originated, why it is judgmental, how it can negatively impact our lives, how our brains are wired to look for what is wrong, and how to respond lovingly in the midst of life’s challenges.

Moonology (Lucy).  Join us as we connect with the feminine power of the moon.  Learn about the moon cycles: waxing, waning, new moon, and full moon.  Learn how to do a full moon ceremony to let things go, forgive and shift that which no longer serves.  Learn how to do a new moon ceremony to manifest that which you desire to draw into your life.  You will be able to continue to use these ceremonies, stay in tune with moon magic, long after the retreat.   

Soulful Art-Making (Michelle).  Participants will be guided through Michelle’s unique 5 step process that demystifies art making by accessing inner wisdom and making intuitive choices. No art experience required. This workshop focuses more on the process of artmaking, rather than how to paint a particular scene. It is not a ‘paint-by-number’ class where everyone makes the same piece. You’ll learn how to develop, compose, and complete a unique piece of art that only you could make because it will come straight from your soul’s voice carrying meaning and purpose for your life journey. This workshop builds confidence and self-belief through learning how to access, hear, and trust your intuition. 

Therapy is A Walk in the Woods (Alison). If you long to feel happier and more peaceful and love Nature, join Alison, a certified Forest Therapy Guide, for a walk along the Exploits River. With no specific destination in mind, we will wander, explore and immerse ourselves in nature for 2-l/2 hours, allowing our senses to guide us. Forest Therapy is a mindful, healing and connective practice inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku” which translates into “forest bathing”. Spending time in nature not only strengthens our immune system and reduces stress, but also makes us more creative, mindful and content in our lives.  

Forest therapy walks are for anyone who wants to de-stress, slow down, relax and rejuvenate mind, body and spirit. We will be outside no matter the weather, so come prepared with warm and water-resistant clothing so you can enjoy the outdoors in comfort.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) (Nora). EFT uses the body’s own energy system by “tapping” on the meridians or energy pathways to remove blocked or stuck energy.  This technique enables healing to occur. EFT can address issues such as fears, addictions, emotional trauma, depression, physical and other issues.  

Healing with Nature’s Medicine (Alison). This session is for you if you are ready to be inspired to explore the healing medicine of wild plants that can be found close to where you live.  Not that long ago our grandmothers and grandfathers foraged native wild plants for food and for medicine. Now many of us are feeling the call to return to some of these traditional ways and wisdom so we can feel better and live healthier lives. Such a calling began Alison’s journey into ancestral ways that led her back to the place of her birth, and to create the Boreal Forest Elixirs. 

In this session Alison will share stories and learnings from her journey of discovery with some of the plants of the Boreal Forest. This session will cover the basics of plant spirit medicine, foraging and preparation of wild plants for use as food and medicine. If the weather permits, part of the session will be spent outdoors.  

Crystals and Feng Shui (Lucy).  Crystals are used for healing, personal reflection and meditation.  Feng Shui is the art of allowing energy to move freely through your home, creating balance and tranquility.  Using crystals with Feng Shui and Chakra balancing is powerful.  Learn practical tips to bring more loving energy to your home with crystals and Feng Shui principles.  

Accept What Is and Move Forward (Brenda).   If you have people in your life who are draining your energy, if you are attracting negative people, if you are experiencing many ups and downs in your life, or if you are holding on to negative memories, this session will teach you tools to release that energy. 

Visioning through ART: In this workshop, you’ll learn how to take control of your life’s direction by accessing your deepest desires and dreams through a creative visioning process. Michelle will guide you through 3 distinct phases: “Ready – Set – Go”. First, you’ll prepare your mind and body to be receptive to hearing your heart’s desires. Next, you’ll create a collage that reflects your deepest wishes for your life. Finally, you’ll learn techniques to reinforce the new wisdom acquired in the workshop. Plus, you get to take home your vision board which will help you to stay focused on achieving what you want for your life.

Spirituality and Inner Freedom (Barb).  The mystic, Meister Eckhart encourages…” Become aware of what is in you – announce it, produce it and give birth to it.”  Barb’s workshop is designed to explore the healing power and promise of Spirituality in unleashing and freeing the great “Magnificence” that lies within each one of us!  Come build upon what you already know about how to become more “aligned” through the process of making the unconscious “conscious” – thereby opening increased pathways to personal discovery, well-being and freedom!!

BONUS OFFERING: Saturday & Sunday Mornings we are offering morning mediations.
