Awaken & Restore: A Self Care Retreat for Women at Shanti Retreat
Friday September 6th – Sunday September 8th, 2019
Shanti Retreat, Wolfe Island
Self Care is Self Love. Join Lacey Budge for an inspiring and nourishing weekend retreat to savour the end of summer. Step out of your daily routine, and create space to fill your cup before diving into a busy fall schedule.
Retreat to an Island Getaway! Relax, rejuvenate and unwind at Shanti Retreat located on beautiful Wolfe Island, near Kingston, the gateway to the Thousand Islands. To reach Shanti, board the Wolfe Island Ferry conveniently located in the heart of downtown Kingston. It’s a scenic 20 minute free car ferry ride to this island sanctuary.
Awaken & Restore the inner Goddess with a weekend of yoga (Flow, Hatha & Restorative), meditation, sacred movement to open the body and heart, self care practices, countryside walks, soul nourishing vegetarian cuisine, inspiring gatherings and an evening bonfire. Experience the special energy of the yurt during our daily practices and gatherings.
Choose from semi private, shared or tenting accommodation. You’ll feel at home in Shanti’s spacious century inn and waterside cabins. This beautiful property has stunning views of the St. Lawrence River and sunsets from the waterfront patio are memorable. The inn’s timbered ceilings and wood stove provide a natural country charm.
Your body and soul will be nourished with Shanti’s delicious and nutritious meals. With the utmost love and respect for animals and the earth, vegetarian meals are served. We strive to use locally grown Wolfe Island organic produce whenever possible. Shanti can accommodate a gluten free and vegan diet. See a sample menu!
Reconnect with the beauty, freedom and infinite joy that dwells within. Immerse yourself in Wolfe Island’s natural beauty with time outdoors swimming in the Brown’s Bay, sunbathing, walking the labyrinth, cycling, reading in a hammock, or simply sitting waterside with a journal and herbal tea. You may also choose to book a massage with Jack during the afternoon free time!
Connect with nature, Self, and sisterhood. All scheduled activities are optional – it’s your retreat! We will have a magical weekend together, and you will leave feeling reconnected, reawakened and restored.
