The Rejuvenation Retreat at Home: A Virtual Series

Registration is OPEN

Busy humans, now you can retreat in the comfort of your own home.

So you want to carve out some time for yourself (critical), but you’re a little weary of these retreat thingamabobs you’re seeing on social media. Fair. Totally fair. For many, retreating is something you work up to, but here’s the thing, you shouldn’t have to go to a different physical place to find peace. Boom (OK, maybe this isn’t that earth-shattering). We’re not saying we don’t want to meet your beautiful face (and personality) in the flesh, we’re just expressing our genuine understanding that retreating in the woods may not be for everyone or simply isn’t feasible (e.g. scheduling you time isn’t possible for the next year due to a new baby OR you don’t live in Alberta).

But we all want a break. Right? We all want rest and peace and acceptance (from ourselves mostly). So why not try doing so, with a glass of wine in hand, in your pyjamas, in your favourite squishy chair, at home. Sign me up, baby.

What happens at our online retreats?

This five-week series is a slight variation on our standard one-day retreat, but with many similar themes. We are going to focus on the cultivation of grit and grace and help you write your personal manifesto, but we are also going to showcase a variety of awesomeness by featuring guest speakers who will talk about the connection between your emotions and gut health, spirituality and deep relaxation. See details below.

You’ll get to meet women from across Canada (and beyond) to use as thought partners to lean into the icky and awesome and do the big work (and don’t worry, we will be right there to support you). In addition to 5 x 1-hour community calls, you will receive one guide session with Morgan Craig-Broadwith (Chief Wellness Officer) and Caroline Bruce (Master Retreat Guide) to dig into the Personal Manifesto (a declaration of your life’s essence and purpose) and help you get pen to paper in a meaningful way. Plus, we will make you laugh – belly laughs are an essential component of healing.

Yasodhara Ashram, Kootenay Lake, BC

The Rejuvenation Retreat: Cultivating Grace & Grit

Registration is OPEN

Not your average day in the woods. But who wants average? 

We invite you to spend a few days building a community with other women who are in search of the same solace, peace and challenge as you; they want to unearth their gritty badass while tuning into their unbelievable grace. Sounds awesome, right? That’s because it is (obviously we’re super biased).

This will be our sixth retreat and to celebrate, we’re changing it up (quite a bit). We’re exploring a beautiful new location, Yasodhara Ashram, an incredible spot located on the shores of Kootenay Lake, BC. You will fall in love with this place (trust me, I did as soon as I arrived back in 2014). We cannot wait to take you on this adventure.

What happens at our retreats?

Our beautifully curated retreats will gently expose you to the concept of cultivating grit and the importance of grace to help weather the inevitable storms of life. You will receive a workbook developed and designed to support your personal exploration of grit and grace. This may elicit feelings of momentary discomfort, but we need this energizing emotion to engage in real, badass change.

You will yoga. You will walk. You will breathe in nature. You will eat. You will community (yes, it’s a verb now). 

The goal of this weekend is to encourage calm and rest, but also to help you initiate and / or write your Personal Manifesto. This is a declaration of your overarching life purpose; the macro goal that drives all micro goals; a declaration of your essence. This is no easy feat and requires time. You may only walk away with an inkling as opposed to a fully fledged Manifesto – that’s OK. This weekend and workbook will help you kickstart this exciting process.

Let this be a weekend of rest, laughter, self-discovery, and connection. Let this be a moment for you.
