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 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.
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.
All Day Reset Retreat
Smudging Tools and Wood Burned Mandala
January 26, 2020 – 9:30am-4pm – $95 per person
The day will start with a little meditation to get you started on the right foot. We will then spend the rest of the morning making smudge bundles and a feather smudging fan. We will break for a yummy lacto ovo vegetarian gourmet lunch.
In the afternoon, we will be making wood burned mandalas. Mandalas offer balancing visual elements, symbolizing unity and harmony. They can be a useful tool in meditation as they can be seen as a hypnotic, letting the creative hemisphere of our mind run a little more free while our analytical mind takes a little nap.
Our guest instructor for this retreat will be Natalie Fraser of Moment-M.
All supplies are included and if you sign up with a friend you get a discount.
All Day Art Journaling Retreat
We All Have a Story to Tell
March 21, 2020 – 9:30am-4pm – $95 per person
I believe we all have a story to tell. You don’t have to be powerful, famous, or extraordinary. Reasons to tell your story is to leave your mark and help to build a bridge from one heart 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 get you started on the right foot. We will then spend the rest of the day getting messy and making our journals. We will of course break for a yummy lacto ovo vegetarian gourmet lunch.
All supplies are included and if you sign up with a friend you both get a discount.
