Self-Care Weekend

3-day retreat held at Heaven and Earth Retreats in Banks, Oregon

Join me for a weekend of quiet reflection, healing, and rest. Many of us secretly crave that quiet time to set with our cup of coffee, breathe and be without distraction. This weekend is exactly what you need. Nurture that longing to set, without pressure, without distraction, or the tugs of that “to do” list. We are surrounded with noise and our inner wisdom is asking for quiet, silence, and rest.

Spring Retreat

April 24, 25, 26

The Optimal Living Spring Retreat offers you a place to drop in, to listen, to hear, to unravel the sounds, and to let clarity, direction, and peace rise from within. Your weekend will include amazing options to create the self-care you need, including the special gift of a personal Reiki session with Linda Soleil, an energy healing practitioner of 13 years.

Outdoor amenities include a hot tub, two in-ground fire pits for gathering, meditative gardens, walking paths, and ponds, and a yoga barn with blocks, blankets, straps, mats, and meditation cushions available.

The indoor living space is equally inviting, with unique and creative spaces for gathering and being in solitude. If it’s rainy outside, curl-up by the wood-burning stove in the living room or relax in one of the reading nooks.

Rooms

Food
