Harmony Retreat 2024

An immersive 6-day experiential program to nourish the body, clear the mind, and activate the spirit that will change your life.

A Transformational 6-Day Experiential Retreat

September 8th through September 13th, 2024

 

For many years I have dreamed of the perfect retreat venue: Cabins surrounded by forests, water, beach, and wetlands. I also wanted a sauna, yoga and meditation studio, and a personal chef who prepares healthy food. I searched cities and countries around the world, and my search is over. Welcome to Harmony, located three-hours from Toronto, Canada. Replete with 26 acres of beautiful land, including 1400 ft of private waterfront on the Great Lakes and forest trails, there is no finer place to pause, rejuvenate, connect, and evolve.

Detailed Events & Activities

Below is a description of the retreat activities. Watch the agenda 4-minute video below for an overview of the 6-day program.

Opening Night Sound Sanctuary (90 minutes)

Sound Sanctuary, is a grounding and restorative beginner-friendly experience that opens with self-paced Kundalini breath work and movement suited to everyone. This short opening helps bodies and minds to better settle in for a profoundly meditative, healing, and sound journey.

With their wide range of frequencies, tones, and harmonies, Gongs are one of the most potent ancient healing instruments and, in this experience, are complemented by other sound healing instruments.

The vibrations of a sound bath can induce a state of deep meditation and relaxation, moving and clearing energy and the subconscious mind.

A group mantra meditation will ground everyone back into their bodies while supporting participants in tapping into the healing power of their voices. It naturally creates a group healing experience and invites coherence to close out the evening. The entire session includes your choice of Healy Frequency support program or focus for the space. (Coherence, Chakra Balancing, Energy Clearing, etc.).

Using the Heart as our compass, this journey is intentionally designed to deepen the connection between mind and body. Utilizing breathwork technology, Jack alchemizes authentic wisdom that brings more balance to the Soul. Bridging the worlds of science and spirituality within an environment curated for expansion will ignite your innate ability to use the holistic tools of breathwork, intentional sounding, and meditation as agents for change in your life.

When you own your breath, you take back control of your energy, and from this place of inner sovereignty, nothing can disturb your peace. Pulling inspiration from the certainty that when one finds peace, everyone benefits, we will venture through the uncertainty of the unknown and into the infinite possibilities of positive transformations that are ready to be known. 

Jess brings a megawatt smile, a contagious laugh, and energy to her practice, which also includes sound and singing. Jess designs each class and offers many practices, including Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yang/Yin Restorative.

This is Harmony’s signature offering. An immersive experience including sound, singing, breath work, a mediative barefoot forest walk, a grateful circle, yoga and movement, a wood fire sauna session, and a lake plunge. It leaves all that participate connected and joyful.

There will be plenty of time to shut down, unwind, and enjoy nature, whether you prefer the water or forest. At the heart of Harmony is an untouched 300-year-old forest. The trees' serenity, wisdom and resiliency embrace you with each step along the moss carpeted trails as you walk barefoot to connect with the earth’s energy.

The vista of environmentally protected wetlands is a treasure chest of animal and plant life. It is biodiversity at its best. With blue and white herons, frogs, swans, eagles, owls, otters, and beavers, it is a beautiful world.

With 1400 feet of waterfront and a stone-covered beach, Lake Ontario is at your feet. Each day, the water offers a different view to take in and wash over you. Crystal-clear waters refresh and soothe you, whether you go for a dip, lounge lakeside, or shut your eyes and unwind to the rhythm of the water.

An evening to let go and journey inward that blends the essence of meditations, live music, recorded sound journeys, sound bowls, and more. It is a guided, supported evening of energy and healing. This experience is about seven hours. And takes place at sundown. It includes a pre-ceremony call with our guide, Michael, and a post-integration call. 

Thai massage with the wonderful and talented Bobbi. She leads you through movements and pressure points to release and soften blockages and tense muscles. Thai massage is very different from other forms of massage. It is a full body massage performed on a mat on the floor in comfortable clothing. It incorporates tai chi movements, rhythmic gestures, palm and thumb pressure along energy lines, gentle stretching and the conscious use of breathing. The additional cost is $120 per hour and sessions can be anywhere from 1-3 hours.

Amy offers a fascinating reading of your energy through the contact of your higher self and spiritual guides. These readings offer insight and clarity on your life journey. The cost is $140 per person for one hour, with a minimum of 4 people. 

Experience a deep cleanse and remove impurities that reduce your energy and slow your metabolism. More details upon application.
