Join us for an autumn retreat on Wolfe Island. Savour the beauty of the fall colors and the flocks of migratory Canada Geese gathering in Brown's Bay.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving we will take time throughout this weekend of yoga, meditation, silent morning walks and informal evening gatherings to contemplate Gratitude.
What are we grateful for in our lives? What are our daily Joys? In the words of Sara Ban Breathnack "All we have is all we need. All we need is the awareness of how blessed we really are."
Shanti, is a Sanskrit word that means peace. A sanctuary where guests can pause, reflect, and connect in community with kindred spirits.
Shanti’s nurturing atmosphere provides guests with the inspiration to delve deeper into the gift of yoga and the possibilities for transformation and growth.
Savour the opportunity to pause from the ebb and flow of daily life.
RETREAT INCLUDES: Daily yoga practice, guided silent morning walks, afternoon meditation, local organic vegetarian meals,detoxifying infra-red sauna, sitting fireside and Saturday evening yoga inspired movie.
All activities are optional of course…it’s your retreat. You may choose to just hang out in a hammock or find your sacred space along 1000 feet of private shoreline.
