We need time to restore and heal our bodies that are energetically depleted from anxiety, stress, trauma and grief. It is time to re-story our narratives about our life situations that keep us stuck in negativity and lethargy.


It is time to rekindle the creative energies needed to move forward with a sense of hope, joy and connectedness.

Spring is the Season of Awakening to new possibilities and new life. For the soul a journey into spring can entail undertaking new projects, giving attention to desires and hopes that stir up after the slumber and sleep associated with winter, or even making some important life changes. A silent space to focus on awakening of the senses and spirit is especially needed as our bodies and souls are often depleted through all the challenges and the relentless demands that our current lives and work environments hold. This silent retreat will create the sacred space for solitude and deep reflection to facilitate this soul journey into spring through the practices of mindfulness, meditation, yoga and movement.

Due to many requests, our gardens will be reserved for our guests only who enjoy the silence and tranquillity of all that we offer.

This is the ideal opportunity to unwind and relax, only to be disturbed by the birds.  The sound of water.  The wind in the trees and your softening breath.
