Deep Summer Retreat

August 11-15, 2023

Experience a deeply healing, life-change over 5 days
on the beautiful Bruce Peninsula!

In the heart of the summer season, this 5-day retreat in the sweet village of Colpoy’s Bay on the Bruce Peninsula offers you a chance to relax deeply, let go of stress & anxiety, and cultivate your evolutionary journey in one of Ontario’s most beautiful landscapes. Colpoy’s Bay is a gorgeous estuary of Georgian Bay (Lake Huron) with the limestone cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment and the Bruce Trail ringing it’s shores.

Besides long afternoon breaks to rest, meditate or explore the many attractive features of the area, the program will provide a warm and safe container for your journey in self discovery, creativity and experience of the nature of reality—in Real Nature. The location lies right on the Bruce trail and a mere 100 meters from the clear blue, refreshing waters of Colpoys Bay, so 3 swims per day will be possible.

Our way of learning will involve short talks, followed by experiential, mindfulness-based exercises & question periods with dialogue. And to exercise our creative, passionate & somatic selves, there will be times for gentle stretching, embodied meditation and mindful, musical improv.

Retreat time includes a full Hakomi “Nourishing Communication” workshop (credit towards training) and a complementary Korason Method for Authentic Voice & Dialogue workshop. Take home skills & tools applicable to both personal and professional relationships.

A special treat on Sunday will be a session with guest facilitator & prominent naturopath, Dr. Rob Gatis (see bio & topic below).

Tuition is US$330 (c. CA$450 ).  Space is limited (12-14). Are you drawn to attend? Please email me with something about how this event might fit with where you are in your journey. Then we will speak on the phone or Zoom. When you’re ready to register, I’ll send information re accommodation choices in the area. There are actually 4 bedrooms available for rent in the historic home where our retreat will take place.
