I wanted to take a moment to express my deep gratitude for the past four days. I felt that each activity, meal, discussion and adventure was created with great care and intention. You set the tone for generosity, compassion and deep listening. You ensured that every comfort was surpassed, so that we could focus on reconnecting with ourselves and nature.
In life I’ve been taught that love must be earned. Yet during the retreat I experienced countless acts of kindness by complete strangers. My heart is so full. My perceptions are changed. This is a transformative gift that I will carry with me always.
I am so grateful, is all I keep thinking.

The retreat was absolutely wonderful. I am energized and full of optimism as I face some daunting challenges in the coming months.
A journey is best measured in friends, not in miles.
This year’s retreat theme will be “Joy and Gratitude”. Many of us believe we are lacking in these traits, but in truth, joy (in Sanskrit, “Ananda”) is the essence of who we are. Gratitude flows easily when we align with the truth of who we are. Joy and gratitude lift our energy vibration out of despair, anxiety and fear.
What else will we do
Besides twice-daily yoga, we will do some hiking in beautiful, bug-free mountains and forests. We will do some breath and meditation playshops, as well as kirtan (call and response chant-song) to help us connect on all levels.
Kirtan and Sound Bath
Kirtan (call and response singing or chanting) is an easy way to calm the mind and access higher energy vibrations. We will also invite the group to lie down and relax while Liz and Roy play a variety of instruments and sounds to help us move into blissful rest before bedtime, ahhhhhhhhhh ….
Peaceful Mountain is a beautiful accommodation near Mt. Baker with everything we need: yoga space with hardwood floors, meditation spaces, exercise room, hot tub, sauna, full kitchen from which we will serve three delicious meals daily, and access to nature and hiking trails. Rod is a wonderful owner and host, who may play his didgeridoo for us if we are lucky!
Teachers, cooks and hike leaders
Liz and Roy pride ourselves in creating loving, organic, healthy yet amazingly tasty meals. Included is Friday night dinner, three meals each day, Saturday and Sunday, and bountiful Monday brunch.
Roy Holman will teach some of the yoga classes and lead the hike. Roy teaches a breath-connected, meditative, flow viniyoga, and has led over 60 retreats, in the North Cascades as well as in Sedona, Mexico, Costa Rica, Bali and Guatemala. We will have a total of four or five yoga classes over the weekend in the beautiful space, breathwork workshops, meditation classes,, a hike, a silent meditation walk..
Liz Gross is an amazing, intuitive healer, and will also teach yoga, meditation and energy work, and help cook! She will offer a variety of optional extra healing gifts extra cost), and each of us is available for issues or questions that arise.
Liz: “I believe all healing involves alignment of the soul with the body. When you’re consciously in touch with the life energy within yourself, you have awareness & communication with the flow of energy that connects you to spirit. I feel very passionate about Vibrational Medicine and love working with others in this way & helping others to connect with their purpose and passion in life.”
Vibrational Energy Medicine brings the physical, emotional, mental, & spiritual bodies back into balance, which opens the way for rebuilding the healing systems of the body. Please read more about Liz at her website
