Soul, spirit, heart, energy, gut, intuition, brain.
Whatever you call it, we've all got it - that intangible something that makes us who we are, that guides and inspires us. It's a fluid force that ebbs and flows throughout our lives, and it needs to be cared for just like our physical body.
If you love Mother Nature and feel like you're in need of an energetic reset, this is the retreat for you - every time I come back here I feel more connected with myself and full of energy that invigorates my daily life!
Allow Erin and myself to provide a supportive environment for growth and rest, and let the powerful Killarney energy anchor you within yourself. The clear lakes and hills made of red granite and white quartzite will leave you feeling thoroughly refreshed and back in sync, and I'm confident it will become one of your favourite places too!

Erin has owned Hybrid Hair And Detox Spa in Waterloo for 11 years, which is where I originally met her, and our paths just kept crossing. Offering eco-friendly, guilt-free care is her passion, including for hair and skin, energy treatments, holistic life coaching, and yoga. (She cuts my hair and delights my heart!)
Awareness of the connection between mind, body, and spirit is at the core of Erin's entrepreneurial inspiration, and she thrives when helping others along the path to power. Each experience with Erin is intuitively lead and deeply connective, when you're with her you'll know that you are unconditionally loved and supported.
The only thing you need to be able to do is walk on uneven ground as the Avalon is not paved and there are some paths to get around on.
The yoga, hiking, and paddling are for beginners as well so you don't need to be a pro in any of these areas, we'll teach you what you need to know and you can participate as much as you like.
If you have any mobility concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out! :)
Due to the layout of the cabins we cannot provide private rooms, but there are private dressing areas in each cabin, as well as plenty of space between the beds so you're not all crammed in like summer camp.
We'll do our best to make sure friends can bunk in the same room, and if you have any concerns please feel free to reach out!
The black flies are gone by this time of year, and there aren't many mosquitoes at the Avalon due to it's great location. If you tend to get eaten, of course we recommend spray for yourself.
Heck yeah! Either Erin or myself will happily put aside 15-20 minute to make sure each person gets a little one-on-one time if that's what you'd like. (It's also not a required component, so no worries if it's not your jam.)
We provide all the equipment and food you'll need, so you just need to bring your personal belongings.
We'll send you a comprehensive packing list a couple of months before the trip and we always bring a few extra things, so you'll be well prepared.
