A Women’s Seasonal Wellness Retreat Series
A Trio of Mid-Week Retreats for the Coming Year:
Fall 2016, Winter and Spring 2017
Participate in one, or all three for a special price.
Retreating and reflecting is as important as accomplishing and engaging with the world. If we do not honor the basic, intrinsic cycle of in-breath as well as out-breath, we may lose the sense of meaning and purpose in our lives. In addition to offering our on-going Wellness Retreats, Spa Director Marilyn Strong has crafted a seasonal retreat series created especially for women. With themes fitting the flow of the seasons (Fall: Dreams and Letting Go, Winter: Spirit and Inner Listening, and Spring: Vision and Renewal) and using the same Wellness Retreat mid-week time-frame of three days and four nights, she has woven together guided experiences to help you consciously withdraw from your ordinary life and replenish your inner world.
Through intention-setting, guidance and consultation, spa rituals for renewal and restoration, and the opportunity for silence, solitude, creativity and ceremony; a container will be created for you to be held by the magic and mystery that is present in the liminal space “where the forest meets the sea”. Our trio of retreats set the stage for restorative, healing encounters where you can deeply listen and attune to nature and your truest, most authentic self; and where you can invite balance, contentment, health, and inner simplicity to reside in you. You may then return refreshed and renewed in body, mind and spirit.

These retreats are designed as stand-alone experiences, but can also be experienced as a nine-month personal growth process.
