This year’s retreat theme will be “Less is More”. Humanity is moving very fast, doing too much, forcing and struggling. This weekend there will be plenty of “doing”, but we will slow things down, breathe fully, and question the idea that more and faster is better or more satisfying. Perhaps, like hamsters on the wheel, we are moving faster, growing tired, and not really getting where we think we want to go.
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 organic 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.

“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.
You! We usually have about 15-20 people, a chance to make new friends and connect, but also quiet time to read, relax, and rejuvenate. You are invited to do as many or as little as the classes and activities as fits you and your needs.
