5 days on the Oregon Coast from September 25-29, 2019
Join myself and a small cohort for 5 days in the one of the most majestic pockets of the Pacific Northwest. We stay in a private oceanfront home in Manzanita, Oregon - a small coastal town along the Oregon Coast. Just 90 minutes west of Portland, Oregon, enjoy beach walks, salt air, tree-lined hiking, and space to retreat as we move into the fall.
Spend the majority of your retreat in your journal. As a Certified Journal to the Self Instructor I will help you explore new techniques and themes to get the most from your personal journal practice. Writing is an instant door to our interior, spend full days immersed both in exploration and inquiry without the distraction of daily life to take you away.
Daily Hatha, Yin & Restorative Yoga
Join us for daily Hatha Yoga each morning and Yin + Restorative Yoga each afternoon. Each yoga session is 75 minutes and designed for integration, rest, being grounded, as well as clarity and awareness.
Art Making & Creative Sessions
Art making is a powerful way to drop out of your mind and into the body and play with materials like paint, paper, glue, canvas, and more. We’ll use these creative sessions to integrate what you’re learning and take home reminders of your experience.
Live-in PRivate CheF
Enjoy three organically sourced meals per day prepared by our live-in chef, Zachary Mazi of The Food Bender. All meals are included, plus regional wine and beer. In addition, enjoy an immersive cooking class on our community cooking night taught by our chef.
