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 your life, and it needs to be cared for just like your 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!
Join Christine and myself to give your spirit the environment and support it needs to grow and flourish, and allow the powerful energy of the Killarney area to anchor you in nature and within yourself. The clear lakes and hills made of red granite and white quartzite will leave you feeling thoroughly refreshed and back in sync.
Private reiki sessions with Christine or myself are available throughout the retreat do deepen your personal renewal.
Workshops include making a mala bracelet/necklace, getting past limiting beliefs, and meditation.
You'll also get to explore this natural gem with short hikes, canoeing and kayaking.
Meals are healthy, energizing, and made fresh organic and local ingredients, with plenty of space for vegan and gluten/dairy free - just let us know in the registration. Recipes are available for you to use at home!
We've got a great spot, great activities, and great food - we just need you!

Avalon Eco Resort,
This is a women's retreat.
No camping, paddling, or yoga skill needed.
Ability to hike on uneven, rocky, and moderately hilly trails recommended.
$865 /person, shared room.
Price includes tax & all equipment and supplies!
Contact me for carpool options.
Christine has chosen to support Ryan's Well Foundation, which helps communities gain access to fresh water. We take it for granted when we turn on the taps, but many women can't go to school or work simply because they spend their day walking miles to a water source, and then home again.
Free their time, free their potential!
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. We can 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.
Oh heck yeah! We make this a priority during the trip, and everyone will get at least 20 minutes with Christine or myself over the duration of the retreat.
Reiki is 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.
