Day Retreats

Ever wanted to come to a retreat but couldn’t commit to an entire weekend? Come spend a relaxing and rejuvenating day full of connection and encouragement with me out in the country.

We are finally in our dream home and I am inviting you all to come out and share Mountain View Farm in Luskville, Quebec with us.  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.

Peaberry Studio Luskville

Most of the art projects will be led by me, artist and hostess Renée Savoie. But, I am all about collaboration so I always try to get a guest artist in to teach a workshop as well.

The day will start with a little opening movement to get you started on the right foot. We will then move into the benefits of smudging and learn how to make a smudge bundle. Then it is time for our Intentions booklet. We will have an offline break for lunch (which you will hopefully have prepared the night before from the recipe we provide). The afternoon will start with a meditation then we will get right into creating our Vision boards. Hopefully we will finish off the day with sharing what we have created.

I believe we all have a story to tell. You don’t have to be powerful, famous, or extraordinary. Reasons to tell your story are to leave your mark and help to build a bridge from one heart or generation to another until we are all connected. If you sign up for this workshop you will be sent some guidelines of things to gather and think about prior to the retreat so the day of, we can get to work creating our gorgeous journals.

The day will start with a little meditation to clear your mind and prepare you for the day. We will then spend the rest of the day getting messy and making our journals. We will have an offline break for lunch (which you will hopefully have prepared the night before from the recipe we provide).

Retreat kits will be available for drop off in Luskville and Aylmer or pickup at agreed upon location for those in Gatineau and Ottawa. If you would like it shipped, please contact me at renee@beyoutifulsouls.com to get a quote.

What you will need: Paint, scissors, decorative papers, paper ephemera or items that speaks to you, copies of photos of yourself and some natural elements to dye your fabric such as avocado pits.
