Reclaiming Awe
in Intimate Relationship
Through Mindfulness and Nature
Now on Nov 20th, 1:00-8:00pm!!!


Looking for inspiration in your life and relationships?

Seize an opportunity to deepen your connections and transform fear and anger into awe and wonder. Explore concepts of intimacy and autonomy in order to reclaim your life and important relationships.

Your guide will facilitate sharing, guided meditations, rituals and expressive exercises. You will have the opportunity to make a journal of images and words documenting your journey of challenge, opening and transformation.

We will draw on therapeutic courage, the ability to stay with whatever arises in the here and now through mindfulness practices. When we are mindful and noticing, we are able to see ourselves, our partners and our world through a beginner’s eye and foster a fresh start.  Together we will explore how we connect to more of our being and that of our important loved ones. 

The natural setting of Surprise Farm provides us with the opportunity to spend time in Mother Nature’s embrace to reflect and enrich our process. 

This workshop includes the opportunity for fire-pit storytelling, spending the night in one of our accommodation options and a morning meditation.


By learning to stay present through challenges we can be open to discover something new about ourselves and our loved ones. This retreat is intended for all people interested in reclaiming their relationship with themselves and with others, whether single or in partnerships.
