Winter Retreat - Embrace the Nourishment

“Winter is the salve for a world that simply does too much"

We’re delighted to announce our first seasonal retreat!

Join Angela and Chef Joshna Maharaj in beautiful Gravenhurst for a weekend of delicious food, and deep connection. Enjoy movement, stillness and the space between in this celebration of winter.

Together, we will tap into the natural rhythms of nature, connecting to the land, local seasonal fare and exploring the natural shifts in energy and emotions that comes with each season.

Cooking demo’s, meditation, communal dinners, healing wisdom, self exploration and plenty of time to enjoy the calm beauty of the land. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.

This Nourishing 3-Day Winter Retreat Includes:

  • Warm and serene accommodations surrounded by nature

  • Thoughtful nutritious and delicious organics seasonal meals and snacks

  • Nature explorations for all the senses

  • Seasonal take home project

  • Active and still Meditations

  • Yoga classes daily – for all body types and experience levels

  • Solitary and group experiences

  • A delightful goody bag full of treats

  • Joyful nourishment and connection

Winter is a time of going in, reconnecting with our inner world by embracing the natural stillness and silence that surrounds us in nature. When we heed the calls of nature and go with, rather than resist the natural slowing down that this season brings, we are able to replenish our root energy and store up for more active call of the seasons to come.

This retreat is designed to help you come home to yourself. Fostering soulful and meaningful connections. We’ve set it up so there is both individual reflective and creative time as well as creating a space for meaningful and genuine connection with others.

Space is limited for this unique and nourishing retreat so act fast to secure your space. Only 9 spots available.
