Rest & Relaxation Weekend PLUS ~ Soulshine

With Eve Cook, Michael Cook and Micki Wisenbaker 

July 28 - 30, 2023

Rest & Relaxation Retreat PLUS ~ Soulshine 

This summer, we are excited to offer a Rest & Relaxation Retreat with a full program! Join us for a weekend to nourish your mind, body and soul.

This Rest & Relaxation Retreat will provide a full program with a variety of optional activities including Yoga, a Guided Nature Hike, meditation, and a Bonfire. You will also have an opportunity to join in opening and closing circles, ‘Shake your Soul’ dancing, and Forest Bathing.  As always, there will be an option to add on Massage Therapy or Reiki appointments, space limited. All of this alongside our miles of hiking trails and Natural Reflecting Pond with a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains.

Choose to do as little or as much as you’d like. No schedule…no demands…just the opportunity to “be” on your own terms. There will be other individuals who will also be enjoying Elohee on their own terms, so you may have a chance to make new friends or just enjoy the weekend on your own – it’s your choice!

Meals include arrival dinner on Friday through departure lunch on Sunday, and we’re happy to provide healthy, delicious, and wholesome food for your enjoyment.  Please click on the “Register Now” button to see pictures of our lodging options and to register.

As we navigate the next wave of Covid, proof of a negative Covid test will be required to ensure the safety of all participants.
