A week of your focus and an investment of $2,495, which includes comfy shared lodging; delicious food, tea, coffee, and snacks; and a profoundly life-enriching experience with accessible tools to take home with you. A $500 deposit will hold your spot. The balance is due 90 days before the retreat. Although the deposit is not refundable, it can be credited to a different retreat date with advance notice. Communicate your needs – we’re here to help.

It’s an easy drive if you’re in the Pacific Northwest, or you can fly into Portland International Airport (PDX), about one hour away. We’ll help you connect with transportation to the site. Rental cars won’t be helpful during the retreat, so we recommend saving the money. The scenic train is available between Seattle and Salem or from Klamath Falls to the south up to Salem.

Numbers can vary based on accommodations, but generally, 25-35 people attend the retreat.

Yes! We are all about making accommodations for people to eat in a way that

helps them truly thrive, and it’s not the same for each of us. A gluten-free diet

is a given; dairy alternatives are available, vegan options are offered, and so on.

Your registration materials will include the sharing of your needs.

Now THAT is liberating!

Pack like you would for a vacation at a country lodge, with layers for staying

comfortable indoors and outdoors. Hiking boots or supportive walking shoes are

encouraged. Linens and pillows are provided. Bring your toiletries, but

please do leave heavy make-up and large jewelry at home, and refrain from

perfumes and colognes (and fragranced products) in consideration for those with allergies. During the summer months, bring a swimsuit in case you decide to take a dip in the lake! CPAP machines are welcome, and if you take necessary medications or need an Epi-Pen, please plan to have ample quantities.

Perfume and other high allergens, alcoholic beverages, mind-altering substances

without a prescription, cigarettes and cigars, firearms, or weapons of any kind.

In this powerful retreat, you will:

Release the grip of your suffering

Suffering comes from not attuning, from fearing rejection, and from being unreceived.

Learning to attend to our emotional bodies lovingly and to communicate this experience authentically is powerfully life-changing. It’s the finely honed expertise of your guide, JF. It deserves five days of your loving attention.

Experience radical acceptance – the key to creating lasting change

The in-person retreat experience is like none other. We thrive on connection and creating a safe space together. You are fully welcomed and accepted exactly as you are. Your vulnerability to share your hurt, your pain, your confusion, or your frustration will all be honored, held, and met with caring, skilled attention. It will open a doorway to your emotional intelligence, which in turn will help you reconnect with your innate sense of courage, resilience, love, and value.
