Seeds of Intention: a Yoga & Nature Retreat

Guided by Monica Sheridan and Kristina Domsic at Harmony Dawn Retreat Centre

$365+hst by April 10$415+hst as of April 11

Take time to unplug and reconnect with yourself and nature for a weekend at the beautiful Harmony Dawn Retreat Centre. Slow down and cultivate the inner space you need to better meet the challenges of everyday life. Explore a mindful connection to nature through the practices of yoga, meditation, and forest therapy. You’ll leave the retreat with a variety of nourishing self-care practices to bring into your daily life.

Harmony Dawn is a gorgeous centre situated on the shores of beautiful Rice Lake in Northumberland County. It is surrounded by 50 acres of rolling meadows and healing forest, with many beautiful walking trails. Built with mindfulness to environmental impact, beauty, and sustainable materials, the Centre is entirely self-sustaining with renewable energy. Harmony Dawn was voted one of the greenest buildings in Canada. Because the Centre is off the grid, there is a calm and quiet in the building and surrounding natural area that is deeply rejuvenating. Their vision is to provide an ideal environment for self transformation and renewal as well as giving guests an experience of a greener, more sustainable and attainable future.

Facilities include a cozy gathering space, a beautiful dining room overlooking the woods, a bright practice room facing a meadow, high-efficiency bathrooms, and comfortable dorm-style sleeping quarters. Everyone leaves the Centre raving about the amazing vegetarian food by Nicola Lawrence James, chef and co-founder of Harmony Dawn.
