Come join Renée and her team to explore your heart and imagination openly in a safe and caring environment, all while creating art, memories and friendships.

October 18th to 21st, 2018

 From Thursday @7pm to Sunday @2pm



  We are finally in our dream home and I am inviting you all to come share Mountain View Farm in Luskeville, Quebec.  We are located in the countryside just a half hour from Ottawa and over two hours from Montreal.  The original house has tons of character as it was built in the 1920s and we are tucked under the Eardley Escarpment which provides us with a beautiful view.  We are also minutes away from walking trails in the Gatineau Park and we are lucky enough to have a horse ranch across the street so frequently see horses riding by.

We also have a hot tub should you need a soak at the end of the day and the studio has tons of windows to provide us with lots of light and gorgeous views! 



  Serene and peaceful shared accommodations are provided.  Loaded with country charm, there will be an area in the house for relaxing or reading apart from the studio.  Please be prepared to bunk in with someone.  There are also spots available without accommodations if you live close or would like to stay off campus.  Whether you are on or off campus, all meals, snacks and beverages are included with tuition, from snacks on Thursday to brunch on Sunday and all of the goodies in between.  Our hunky Italian cook, Angelo will be on hand all weekend to serve us up some delicious vegetarian, healthy and nutritious gourmet concoctions (some come for the food alone, he is that good or maybe that hunky).


 The closest airport is in Ottawa and pick-up can be arranged.  Please advise when registering that you will be requiring airport pick-up.  We will require flight information (once you have it) to try and coordinate pick-up of other guests.  Car pooling will also likely be available depending where you live.  Please advise of your interest when registering.


 Typical Canadian weather can be unpredictable but layers, a warm jacket and good shoes for walks are always a good idea.  If you are planning to take a dip in the outdoor hot tub, don’t forget your bathing suit, towel and a robe!

Details for the East Retreat

 All of the main retreat information can be found under our Retreats section such as a basic schedule/outline, but special to the East are:

We will be opening up the retreat with a smudging and a fire ceremony. This will be facilitated by Bermalva Porter, a shamanic Priestess, teacher of meditation, yoga, healer, visionary, ceremonialist and spiritual seeker.  She will also join us on Sunday morning to lead a yoga class overlooking the mountain (weather permitting). 

Art projects for this retreat will include:


The Mixed Media projects and Kombucha class will be led by artist and hostess

Renée Savoie .

The copper wire pendant class will be led by

Tanya McCormick.  

You will also get a chance to have a relaxing massage at some point over the weekend by registered massage therapist

Stephanie Raiche.


The cost for all of this awesomeness is a mere $500.00 and includes accommodations, meals, all art supplies and goodies along the way.  The off-campus spots are $440.00 and include everything but accommodations.  All you have to do is show up with some comfy clothes and an open mind/heart.  A deposit of $250 must be made with registration and the balance of tuition must be paid by September 18, 2018.
