A Weekend Retreat with Spike Gillespie & Amy Hackerd to Stretch Mind, Body, Spirit

Do you keep meaning to take time for yourself, engage in a little self-care, and practice relaxing?

Join writing & meditation teacher Spike Gillespie and yoga instructor Amy Hackerd in a gentle weekend of chilling out with the ladies. This is a substance free weekend. You need not be in recovery/sober to attend, however please note there will be no drinking or other mind-altering shit going down. We’ll take a break from screens, too— no phones, tablets, computers except during personal time. All meals will be vegetarian. If you have food allergies let us know.

COST for event: $200

Want to sleep over? $75 per night single room, $40 per night double/triple, $25 per night air mattress in the reception hall, $10 per night camping. Day attendees also welcome if you prefer to sleep at your own house.
