Stillness by the Ocean: Weekend Island Women's Retreat

You are invited to join us for a weekend women's retreat on Chebeague Island in Maine. This will be a time to completely unplug, rest and simply bask in the ocean breeze and the secluded nature of being on an island in Casco Bay. We will be spending the weekend nourishing our hearts and spirits in a peaceful setting overlooking the ocean. You will also enjoy the opportunity to cleanse your body of toxins with a purely raw food menu for the weekend. This is a powerful way to detox the heaviness from processed foods in our lives!


You will find that your soul will be healed and uplifted simply by just sitting on the porch watching the sunset, sitting on the porch watching the waves or just sitting on the porch. :) And time for meditation, quiet walks on the beach (right in front of the house), or just taking naps in the hammock. Or take a 5-minute walk to the other side of the island to another beach. A few bikes are available for bike rides to various island beaches, the local store, farmer's market, Chebeague Island Inn (and restaurant). 

The nourishment for the weekend will be purely whole, vegan, pure, raw meals and juices, to cleanse and purify your body. This is an exciting opportunity to experience what it's like to eat raw for a few days and notice the changes in your body!

We will head out to the island on Friday evening July 27th and return Sunday mid-day on Sunday July 29th. 

This retreat is designed to be minimalistic but with a few scheduled activities, including:

  • Guided meditations 
  • Group hypnotherapy session on building confidence/self-esteem (optional)
  • Future self drawing time and writing
  • Silent breakfasts
  • Mindful walking and nature connection
  • Beach mandala
  • Angelic light invocation and connection
  • Morning stretching/meditation
  • Writing reflections on facing fears, the Ego voice and the shadow side
  • Cleansing purity bath with essential oils
  • Whole, pure, vegan, raw meals and juices for a total body, mind and spirit cleanse with Cheryl Horton of Life in the Raw

The intention of this retreat is to get away in a beautiful, serene setting to do some deep, inner work and reflection. With a 100% raw food menu, guided writing, meditation, walks and even group hypnotherapy sessions if you choose, you will likely come away from this weekend feeling transformed and prepared to tackle your life in a new way.

 Space limited to 5-6 people, so save your spot soon!  

Update: This retreat is FULL!

Please note that the house is cozy but is also rustic! This is not a luxury spa, but a log-cabin style home.
