Why a Retreat at this Time?

While things are still tense and unsettled in our country and world, Liz and I are optimistic that some profound changes are just ahead.

We hope you can come join us on retreat. We greatly value the powerful energies when community comes together to stretch, breathe, eat, connect, share, grieve and celebrate!

Theme: We will have a theme of “coming back to Life”, balancing us out after a tough couple years, reclaiming our optimism, playfulness, joy, and community.


Why Harmony Hill?

Harmony Hill Retreat Center is located near Union, Washington, in the Hood Canal area. Harmony Hill began with Gretchen Schodde’s dream to create a retreat center where people could experience renewal and deep well-being. In 1986, Harmony Hill opened its doors as a nonprofit retreat facility focusing on wellness. In 1994, they added our Cancer Program, the heart of their mission, to support those affected by cancer, including caregivers and health professionals. In 2004, they began offering our cancer-related programs at no charge. In 2020 Harmony Hill decided to make a fundamental shift to increase our commitment to inspire healthy living for all, recognizing that many of the programs and resources developed over the decades to support those on a cancer journey could equally benefit those who had other health and well-being concerns.

Harmony Hill has a lovely yoga space and will prepare our healthy, vegetarian meals. There are walks and hikes right from the property, and more expansive hikes less than an hour away in Olympic National Park. This will be our first retreat at Harmony Hill!

COVID Policy

Yoga is about unity and oneness, not divisiveness and polarity. All are welcome on our retreats. We do not discriminate for any reason, including sex, gender, race, age, vaccinated or unvaccinated, masked or unmasked. We trust you to take care of yourself, and to decide first, if this trip is for you, and second, how to take care of yourself. We will do our part to keep everyone safe and honor all our needs, but ultimately, your health is your responsibility. May this retreat be a healing experience for all.

Payment and Refund Policy

It may be advisable to purchase Travel Cancelation insurance, as there is much uncertainty and change these days (you may have noticed!). We request a $500 deposit ($100 for Washington Retreats), balance due 30 days prior to trip–when possible.  Note:  Deposit is generally nonrefundable. 3/4 of later payment may be refunded if you cancel > 30 days prior to trip, 1/2 refund if you cancel 15 – 30 days prior to trip (depending on retreat center refund policy), no refund under 15 days prior to trip–unless I can get some money back from hotels and retreat center.  Note: In these wild, COVID times, we do our best to expand our refund policy, being fair to all involved.

Whether you are a beginner or expert at yoga, meditation or hiking, you are welcome here. We teach to all levels, so experienced yogis and hikers will hopefully get what you need, but also those who are new to yoga, or cannot hike fast or far, will have a positive experience. Sometimes we split the hike into two groups, a stronger hike group and a more meditative group.

Your guides will be Liz Gross and Roy Holman

Roy and Liz are passionate about healing and transformation. Roy has been teaching yoga and meditation for over 20 years, and has led hikes in the Pacific Northwest for many years. Liz Gross also teaches yoga and meditation and is a gifted energy healer. Roy has been leading retreats here in WA state and all around the world for nearly 20 years, and Liz joined him in 2014.

Picture is of Liz and Roy showing off by the pool on Bali, Indonesia on our last retreat there, one of our favorite places on Earth. But to be honest, wherever we are is a beautiful place to be!

Saturday: Morning coffee or tea, then yoga, followed by bountiful breakfast. Optional meditation walk and Earth Ceremony. Afternoon yoga, dinner, kirtan or relax (or both!)
