Spring Healer's Retreat June 3 - 6, 2022

Relaxation Retreat September 23-27, 2022

Need a break? Here’s an excuse to get away for a weekend for some peace and quiet and to “hang out” with other like-minded folk. Only a scenic 3 hour drive north of the cities, soak in mother nature’s healing embrace to rejuvenate, gain some perspective, find some balance, and to get connected.

This is a very low key, relaxed retreat. We encourage you to do as little or as much as you'd like.

If you want to work on some inner issues and healing, we have a really supportive group to help you feel safe.

If you want to just have fun and chat and play with other like-minded individuals, this is a great opportunity.

If you simply want to do nothing at all but stare at a chipmunk trying to sneak into your cabin, hey, "more power to ya!".

All meals are on your own (bring food! cabins have fully equipped kitchens)

  • Sit back and notice the colors of sunset
  • Take a morning mist cruise around the lake on the pontoon
  • Bask in the glow of a toasty campfire: watch for shooting stars, listen to a trilling loon song, roast marshmallows and tell stories
  • Stay young at heart and play the many games available here: horseshoes, shuffleboard, volleyball, basketball, board games, chess, pool, foosball etc.
  • Check out area antique shopping
  • Try a leisurely game of area golf
  • Bike the 28 mile paved bike trail
  • Go horseback riding at area stables
  • Indulge your palate with local gourmet and provincial eateries


KID POLICY: As you know, we are VERY kid-friendly here at the resort, but we wanted to let you know that for this special retreat, we schedule it on purpose the weekend after Memorial Day and before most schools are out for the summer to encourage a more adult atmosphere. By all means, bring the kids if you like, but please know that for this weekend only, the lodge arcade room will be shut down and the pool table will be covered and unavailable throughout the entire weekend (no exceptions). We ask that your kids avoid the lodge area, including the mini-carousel, shuffle board court, snack counter, etc. while any group meditation or chakra connection session is going on so as not to disturb the participants. We hope that you will feel available enough to budget for some “you” time! Can’t wait to see you . . .

4:00 p.m. Rooted & Rising Wisdom of Trees  w/ Laura Adrian (1.5 hrs $20) What does it mean to be a spiritual being living here on Earth?  What does that look like?  How do we make a living, take care of our families, nurture our spirit while moving through the day?  How do we meet the suffering in this world and social injustices?  To answer these questions we can learn from the trees—which are both grounded in soil and tall, sturdy and expansive. The magic lies within the balance of being rooted as well as open and the heart is where these two meet.  In this workshop we’ll bring everything together by exploring the wild nature of living from the heart + learn how to work with the energy of trees to develop wisdom.

4:00 p.m.  Healing with the Earth (w/ Laura Adrain 1.5 hrs $20)   In this workshop you’ll learn simple, yet powerful practices to cultivate clarity, reduce anxiety, and spark new truths by working with the energy of the Earth. This is also a remembering that we all come from the Earth, and we depend on the Earth for food, water and shelter. In our modern culture we tend to spend less time outside and we’re collectively less connected to the rhythms of the Earth. Through this workshop, we’ll reconnect to the Earth energetically which can create big and small ripples through all aspects of our lives from relationships to parenting to being of service.

7:00 p.m. Gratitude & Welcome Circle (free - 5-10 minutes) w/ Terry Andersen  (before drum circle we'll send out some thanks to Mother Earth, or take the time to give thanks for whatever you feel drawn to appreciate.

 I Ching Readings - w/Amy Putkonen  (The I Ching is an ancient Chinese oracle that makes suggestions based on the natural patterns going on in one's life at the time. These readings are often deeply personal, as the oracle is not accustomed to beating around the bush.  I use the yarrow stick method, which takes more time but is the traditional way that these readings have been performed for thousands of years. My yarrow sticks were hand-picked, dried and cut for me by my husband, Eric, who made them for me - decades before he knew me - not realizing their true owner was his future wife. So they are blessed by love.  Ideally, you would e-mail me you'd like a reading BEFORE retreat so I have the proper time to prepare.   $50/hour scheduled during retreat weekend for discussion on results)
