The daily itinerary varies to take advantage of local markets and exploration of the beautiful surrounding area but a typical day at the retreat starts with a gentle and energizing yoga class to get you ready for your day. Breakfast follows, the first of your three homemade, nutritious vegetarian meals of the day featuring produce from the local garden, honey from the bees, and organic free range eggs from the local chicken when available.

Within the home grounds, there is plenty of space and time for you to take moments for yourself to rest, restore, and renew.

You will also enjoy your evening outside by the lovely fire-pit surrounded by nature or on cooler or wet evenings in the living room with its large wood-burning stove.
There are so many wonderful meditations available to guide and inspire you to a more positive way of living and this one involves working with all matters of the heart allowing pink energy from the rose quartz to fill your entire body, allowing you to feel worth, love, and compassion for yourself and all.
