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 “The Heart and Art of Presence”. We will explore the meaning of “Presence” and offer tips to feel and allow more presence, awareness, and attention to our life. We will offer some breath and meditation techniques to facilitate the experience of more presence in your life. We will include silent times on the hike, as well as a silent meditation walk in nature.
What else will we do
Besides yoga and meditation, we will do some hiking in beautiful mountains and forests. We will also include a couple small workshops / playshops to dive deeper into the topic of presence, meditation, breath, etc.
An easy way to calm the mind and access higher energy vibrations. We 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: nice yoga space, meditation & gathering space, exercise room, sauna, full kitchen from which we will serve three delicious meals daily, and access to nature and hiking trails in the area. Rod is a wonderful owner and host, who may play his didgeridoo for us if we are lucky! The rooms with private bath are upstairs and a bit more spacious, and the shared rooms downstairs have 3 rooms to share two baths.

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
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.
