Join us for five days six nights of fresh ocean air, watch the world's highest tides go in and out and go whale watching.
Similar to the Amazon Rainforest, the Bay of Fundy has amazing biodiversity and varied ecosystem. For the nature enthusiast, photographer or painter, there are glorious natural landscapes, an abundance of aquatic life: porpoises, fish, dolphins, seals, seabirds and several species of whales. Do a nature walk with one of our local guides such as Roger Outhouse; one of our main sources of information on life in the intertidal zone, especially on the Northeast Cove. We will learn to identify some of the local seaweeds, collect beach pebbles, glass and perhaps some sand dollars left behind as the tide went out. If you would like to sample some of the bounties of the sea there are edible sea vegetables such as dulse, sea lettuce, kelp and of course fish and shellfish. Explore Freeport and Brier Island by bicycle taking along a packed lunch. Make a keepsake using your found beach treasures during an afternoon workshop with a local artisan. Enjoy a day of doing whatever you would like- go to the beach, read, meditate on the bluffs, journal........
yoga practice each morning; may include yoga Nidra, pranayama, meditation, asana.
yoga practice each evening; to finish off the day we will end with a soothing restorative class and/or guided meditation.
Three healthy homemade meals per day. The retreat can be geared towards a vegetarian, vegan or seafood-loving group.
Check-in is Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. and check-out is Thursday morning 10:00 a.m. (If you are arriving before supper on Friday and in need of a meal please pre-book so that I can have something available for you as there is no restaurant in Freeport and that meal is not included in our retreat menu. This is inevitable if you are taking a shuttle, so don't worry if that is the case.
For every person attending the retreats, $20 will be donated to the https://www.canadianwhaleinstitute.ca/
to help with whale rescues.
