Restoring balance, naturally.

Restoring balance, naturally.


Let go of the old and make room for the new. January 25-26th, 2014.

Gift yourself a healing day of inner work that will leave you feeling lighter and clearer on your year ahead.

Join Munira Jiwa of Core Energy Wellness, and myself, at the beautiful Folk Tree Lodge just south of Bragg Creek for a nourishing start to the new year.

Nutritious meals      Nature     Meditation    Qigong     Yoga    Creative writing

Retreat for the day or deepen your experience with an overnight stay (the number of rooms are limited so please book early). Overnight retreaters will enjoy dinner, evening energy balancing sessions, discussion, Sunday morning dream-juicing, breakfast and qigong.




Dig deep as I assist you in diving within to investigate your deepest desires, ponder your profound questions and emerge with insights from your soul. Using creative writing exercises and ancient traditions we will open the channels to recover your passions and discover your purpose. Then plot you a course to support your next steps along the path. For those retreating overnight, we will sip dream tea before bed and juice your dreams for cosmic insight the following morning.





Join Munira in the transformative practice of Spring Forest Qigong.  In collaboration with the day’s intention setting and journal writing you will be guided to help balance your energy, and remove any extra energy that no longer serves you. With balanced energy, you will experience your optimal well being, and ignite your creative flow to assist in designing the life you desire. Munira will offer energy balancing sessions for those staying overnight, and will share extra tips to assist with energy flow.

Day retreat itinerary:

The morning begins with a welcome tea and intention setting.

We identify areas in our lives or bodies with stagnant energy or struggle and move the energy through yo-chee (yoga and qigong).

Time in nature allows us to let go of what no longer serves us. Honouring the old and its gifts and lessons, we let go of the past year.

We enjoy a hot, nutritious lunch.


In the afternoon, we open the channels to recover our passions and discover our purpose for the new year, then design the plan to support us on our path.

Receive personal affirmations for your year ahead and incorporate them into creative expression through art and vision boards.

Complete the day retreat with a healing bracelet strung with your intentions and blessings for your year ahead.

Day retreaters leave us and the overnight retreat continues with a hot dinner, personal energy balancing sessions, discussion,  evening meditation and dream tea.

Sleep soundly in your comfy bed and wake to journal and juice your dreams. Enjoy a morning qigong practice, meditation, and nourishing breakfast.
