SOLD OUT! Restorative Nature Retreat

This event is now sold out.  Watch for a Fall 2018 retreat - details coming soon!

Does the thought of spending the weekend relaxing in nature sound like heaven to you?  Do you need some time to renew your energy, connect with the outdoors, and reconnect with yourself?  

Join Janice for a relaxing weekend of yoga, creative workshops, nature walks, campfires, laughter, and maybe even a dance party.  You can unplug, drop the mask, and remember who you really are.  This is the radical self-care you deserve.

This retreat is exclusively for women, and it goes without saying that you'll spend the weekend with an interesting, fun, and inspiring group of people.

We'll spend time exploring the ideas in the book "Big Magic" by Elizabeth Gilbert, and talk about what it means to live a creative life (hint: it's not all about arts and crafts).  Draft schedule included below.

The setting is the beautiful W.O. Mitchell Retreat Centre, 25 minutes northwest of Cochrane in the foothills of the Rockies. You'll enjoy home-cooked meals, nature trails, and comfortable space to relax.  Accommodations are shared.  Our group will have full, private use of the centre. See all the details here:

Early bird pricing before March 16: $399 plus GST

Regular pricing, March 17 - April 27: $450 plus GST

Price includes shared accommodations, all meals, 3 yoga classes, 2 creative workshops, and a special gift, along with a 30-minute individual coaching session with Janice.  Alcohol is allowed but not provided.
