Retreat to the Pacific Northwest for a restorative weekend in the woods. 

Ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved the woods and the stories of the Pacific Northwest. Growing up in sunny California, images of lush forests, cold rain, crackling fires and cozy sweaters spoke to a hidden place in my soul. The part of me that wanted to go somewhere beautiful and quiet. The part of me that wanted to retreat and restore. For the past four Octobers I have retreated and restored myself at IslandWood in the Pacific Northwest and I invite you to join me for a weekend of spiritual transformation and personal development in this extraordinary setting.

The sign actually says: Meadow Restoration in Progress.  I had just checked in and was on my way to my room and had to stop and take a picture. IslandWood is full of magical signs and invisible helpers.

IslandWood is a gorgeous campus spread throughout the tall canopy. Once inside the front gate, your soul knows it has found a home. Take a breath and relax.

Each of us will have our own room and bathroom and will share a private lodge. Our workshops, lectures and restorative yoga practice will take place in the great room overlooking the stone fireplace and lush forest. 

Every bite matters. This simple-yet-intentional philosophy guides Chef Jim White's approach to IsandWood's dining. His menus showcase local, organic and sustainably sourced ingredients, simply prepared and thoughtfully presented.


This retreat will be powerful.

Our yoga sessions will be strong Yoga Church-style classes. You know how powerfully these classes create transformation of mind, heart, body and spirit.



Evenings will be spent storytelling, laughing and connecting around the campfire or cozying up with a good book and a cup of tea in the lodge. 

And of course, just like every other retreat, we will be spending plenty of time doing soul-searching self-work with lots of relaxation and play built into the schedule.
