The MoMentum: Off-Grid RETREAT

The MoMentum August Off Grid V2.png

The MoMentum Off-Grid Retreat

August 9-11th, 2019

We start at 4pm. Away from the hustle. A rare space of simplicity. To press pause. Into nature for expansion. To rest. To rediscover, recharge and reset.

{Creature comforts, delicious wholesome nourishment + ahas included}

Join me and other likeminded moms for a rejuvenating and inspiring two nights at The Harmony Dawn Centre on the shores of Rice Lake in Northumberland, Ontario. This stunning space, nestled in 50 acres of streams and old growth forest, will be ours exclusively to enjoy and soak in for the entire weekend. Recently built and dubbed one of the greenest buildings in Canada, Harmony Dawn nourishes all of the senses: sleeping and common grounds designed with Feng Shui principles, delicious meals made with organic produce grown on site and from local/organic suppliers, fresh water swimming in Rice Lake adjacent to the property, and invigorating hiking along the Northumberland Trail. We will move, rest, laugh, dance, eat and swim — amongst other things. This retreat will allow you to unplug, heal and reconnect. And, I truly cannot wait to escape to this beautiful place with you!!

The retreat cost is $545 +tax, all inclusive.
