September 2019 – TBA
Creative Soul Writing & Mindfulness Retreat for Women
Salishan Resort, Gleneden Beach, Oregon
A self-discovery retreat is a wonderful way to give yourself a reboot as you reflect, relax, and are inspired. Learn the best ways to incorporate mindfulness into your life, as well as how to establish a nourishing daily meditation. You’ll connect with nature and take a deep dive into yourself.
“So many of us get to a level of success in our lives and the question remains, now what?” says Sarah. “Going on meditation and mindfulness retreat gives you the opportunity to fall in love with who you really are, become clearer about personal success really means to you, and sort out what it is you are truly seeking in your life.”
The weekend begins with a welcome reception on Friday evening September 21 where you’ll meet and connect with Sarah and the other participants.
On Saturday, September 22, you can start your day with a sunrise meditative Yin Yoga session, which is followed by an introduction to mindfulness and meditation. In the afternoon you’ll have free time to relax at the spa, find a hidden hiking trail, visit the beach, or take a kayak tour on the water.
Later in the afternoon, you’ll be guided into a reflective exercise and discussion that will challenge you to become more self-aware, explore your thinking patterns, and create an inspiring shift in perspective. Then, you’ll be served a bountiful dinner featuring fresh, healthy foods. You’ll also have the opportunity to explore mindful eating practices and share insights about what real nourishment is.
On Sunday, you’ll start the day with a sunrise meditation. After breakfast, you’ll then be guided on a walk into the woods surrounding Salishan for a Forest Bathing experience–you’ll be immersed in this sensory experience to connect with nature and yourself. You’ll have time to journal after you’ve been guided into an empowering meditation. The retreat ends at noon.

The package includes two nights lodging, all sessions with Sarah, daily yoga and meditation sessions, the welcome reception, a boxed lunch, and a celebration dinner.
