Women’s Empowerment Retreat

Recovery, Connection, Exploration


 Come together and create a space for women to explore their relationship with nature, self-care, and recovery. You’ll connect with one another, share stories, and learn new skills to support you along your journey.


The Power of Nature

We believe that nature can heal. Our retreat will help you reconnect with your inner strength and guide you through the process of healing. Our goal is to give you the tools and confidence you need to take on personal challenges, while also helping you find peace within yourself and in the world around you.

Invest in Yourself

The Women’s Empowerment Retreat will focus on how trauma affects recovery pathways and confidence. We’ll use the natural environment as a backdrop for discussion and reflection.

This is a chance to give yourself some much-needed self-care while connecting with others who have lived experiences with resilience.

What’s In Store

We’ll discuss concepts of recovery near the doorstep of several National Parks in Canada. Together we’ll explore the outdoors through hiking and forest bathing, practice yoga, and have facilitated workshops by Megan Wright and Margo Talbot.
