Devotion

A five day, hands-on healing retreat to find your way back to your body and nourish your soul. 
July 29th - August 2nd

This retreat is an invitation to devote yourself to the things that make you, you: your body, emotions, dreams, spirit, and self.

 

Amidst the healing sessions, there will be plenty of free time and space for you to deeply nourish yourself in the ways that you feel called. Whether that’s long walks in nature, a deep afternoon rest, or connection with a sister…this retreat is an offering to fulfill the desires that live within you.

“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.”
Anne Lamott

Let me ask you, dear woman…


Do you ever walk through your days feeling a little drained and tired in your body? Do you find yourself washing dishes, or endlessly multi-tasking, spread between concerns for your parents, children & work?

Wondering if you’ll ever feel rejuvenated, nourished and bountiful again? Many of us living in the modern world do

The modern world is designed to keep us in perpetual motion: constantly working towards goals and striving to achieve ‘the next thing’. In the process, it’s easy to forget that all we need is within us. 

 

Retreats are an opportunity to revisit what matters and reawaken what the modern world encourages us to forget: that we matter. 

 

At the Devotion Women’s Retreat, you will move through intentional daily sessions that softly bring your senses back online, and awaken your spirit!

We will come together with like minds and open hearts at Abundance Community Farm in Agassiz, British Columbia. Resting on 40 acres of sacred land, this retreat centre is designed to connect you back to the source of everything: nature herself. 

 

We will spend 5 days tending to the inner workings of your feminine body, honouring the spirit within you, and learning how to listen. 

 

  • You will explore new practices that inspire you to become deeply devoted to the woman you are today. 

 

  • You will be deeply nourished in a safe and beautiful space, with the guidance and support of Ashley and Martin, who will facilitate hands-on healing sessions. 

 

  • You will be surrounded by the tranquility of nature, rooted in the power of connection and community, and held in deep reverence as you come home to yourself. 

You will leave this retreat feeling refreshed, propelled forward on your healing journey, and filled up with everything you need to walk the world feeling satiated, loved up, and open to receive! 


Your body is asking for tending, and it’s time to listen.
