About the event
Join Zen Heart Center Co-Creators Kelly George and Debbie Carlson-Gould for this magical and deeply transformative retreat at the enchanting Aldermarsh Retreat Center, and let the power of stillness lead you to new levels of self-discovery and growth.
Amid the serene beauty of Whidbey Island, Washington, awaits a truly enchanting 4-day retreat designed exclusively for women seeking rejuvenation, empowerment, and deep self-discovery. Step into the embrace of nature at the picturesque Aldermarsh Retreat Center, where tranquility and transformation merge seamlessly in a sacred wintering experience.
DISCOVER THE POWER OF STILLNESS: Winter is a season of reflection and introspection, and during this soul-nurturing retreat, as we ready ourselves for the coming winter we will delve into the profound wisdom of stillness. Among the whispers of the woods and the soothing sounds of nature, we'll explore how embracing stillness can unlock hidden potential, facilitating personal growth and empowerment.
NURTURING ACTIVITIES TO AWAKEN YOUR SPIRIT: Our carefully curated activities are designed to awaken your spirit, cultivate mindfulness, and foster connections with both nature and sister participants. From gentle and invigorating yoga sessions to an immersive sound bath that resonates deep in your soul, each experience will leave you feeling revitalized and centered.
SACRED CIRCLES AND RITUAL ART: In sacred circle, we'll create a space of trust and openness, encouraging heartfelt sharing and support. Guided by compassionate facilitators, you'll have the opportunity to express your innermost thoughts and emotions, fostering a sense of belonging and sisterhood.
Unleash your creativity during our ritual art session. Through art, you'll find a unique channel to communicate your aspirations and intentions, giving form to your innermost desires.
RECONNECT WITH NATURE AND YOURSELF: Aldermarsh Retreat Center's woodsy, natural setting provides the ideal backdrop for this journey of self-discovery. Engage in mindful walks among the towering trees, allowing the crisp late fall air to cleanse your spirit. As you immerse yourself in the natural world, you'll rediscover a profound connection to yourself and the universe around you.
SNUGGLE UP IN COZY ACCOMMODATIONS: Accommodations are thoughtfully appointed to provide a warm and inviting haven for you to unwind and rest. Nestled amidst the tranquil surroundings, you'll experience comfort, coziness, and the chance to replenish your energies for the days ahead.
CEREMONIAL SAUNA & HOLIDAY SHOPPING: Find solace and relaxation in the cordwood sauna, where the scent of cedar fills the air. Embrace the therapeutic warmth as it washes away tension, leaving you feeling refreshed and renewed.
Let’s frolic during our holiday shopping field trip in the charming town of Langley, Washington. Delight in the festive atmosphere as you explore local boutiques and artisanal treasures, adding a touch of enchantment to your winter retreat.
AN EMPOWERING JOURNEY AWAITS: In the embrace of this nurturing environment, you'll be empowered to dive deep within, embracing the stillness to uncover hidden strengths and gifts. Prepare to embark on a journey of personal growth and transformation, surrounded by like-minded women seeking the same.
