Register for this time to relax, refresh and start the year with a greater state of rest, ease, and clarity in this all inclusive retreat.  Space is limited to 12 attendees, so please register to save your spot. 

The focus for the weekend will be to nurture, replenish and gain greater focus of our heart's calling and how to bring that into our daily life. Throughout the weekend, self-care practices will be taught and encouraged. This is time to 'get-away' and 'get clear' about honoring our own inner wisdom, body and mind.

Enjoy yoga classes, meditation, & delicious and healthy meals. You can add a massage or take a walk around the beautiful property. Golden Oak Farm is a calming and relaxing location for this beautiful gathering. One hundred acres of secluded rolling hills, grazing pastures, wooded creeks, apple trees and llamas.
