Connecting With Your True Nature | A Women’s Retreat

August 22 - August 25

Join us for an unforgettable journey of self-discovery and renewal at our women’s retreat, “Connecting with Your True Nature”!


Held at the end of August just before the changing of the seasons, this retreat offers a sacred space for women to reconnect with themselves and the world around them. We invite you to embrace the beauty of this transitional period and harness its transformative energy. Surrounded by the tranquil beauty of Kaslo, BC, you’ll embark on a soul-nourishing adventure that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and empowered.

Throughout the retreat, you’ll engage in a variety of enriching activities designed to deepen your connection with your inner wisdom and the natural world. From guided 9D Breathwork journeys to heart-opening yoga, inspiring Mandala workshop to cold plunging and ecstatic dance…each experience is crafted to awaken your senses and inspire personal growth.

Led by Janice Fairley in collaboration with 3 gifted guest facilitators, we’ll explore themes such as letting go, awakening and expansion in order to bring clarity to your life’s purpose. Through a variety of powerful, inspiring and fun sessions, we will tap into your body’s innate wisdom to heal by living in harmony with the rhythms of nature. This beautifully curated retreat will uncover insights and tools to support you on your journey of self-exploration and empowerment.

In addition to the transformative workshops and activities, and delicious organic meals, you will have ample time for relaxation and reflection. Whether you choose to unwind with swimming or kayaking in pristine Kootenay Lake, taking walks among the forest, simply soaking in the beauty of the The Sentinel, or connecting with fellow participants over shared stories and laughter, you’ll find nourishment for your body, mind, and spirit.

As summer fades into autumn, join us for “Connecting with Your True Nature” and embark on a journey of self-discovery, renewal, and sisterhood. Space is limited, so reserve your spot today and step into the next chapter of your life with grace and intention.
