Regular: 2/ cabin at $675

Individual: 1/ cabin at $875


From South Moon Studio: "Join us as we spend the weekend exploring the depths and beauty of our inner worlds.  Women have such an innate capacity to nurture each other, but we less often make space to tend to our own selves. Together, Jen and Chrissy create a beautiful and rich experience, weaving the best of each of their healing modalities to offer a gorgeous retreat for women to truly give to themselves and nourish those pieces within that need some love and support.

The weekend includes daily gentle yoga sessions to open our creative center, a private BodyTalk session, easy free flow drawing with full instruction and a teaching Drum Circle... all while staying in a beautiful lakeside cabin with a hot tub!  Delicious home cooked meals will leave you with nothing left to do but receive the gifts of insight and sacred time.

There is no yoga, drawing or BodyTalk experience needed to attend this retreat.  We are all beginners on this path of discovery."

Jennifer Oborne Crolly ~ Much to her surprise, Jennifer has been involved with healing and healing ways for over 25 years. For the past 10 years, she has worked with the 7 Teachings, and sharing Indigenous Songs and Teachings with children to create healing spaces within school. She has practiced Classical Homeopathy and intuitive bodywork with a focus on emotional healing, but her focus these days is on supporting movement through relationship, Song, Ceremony and BodyTalk.

BodyTalk is a tool Jennifer has used for 12 years to support her own physical, mental, emotional and spiritual process work, and has been quietly practicing for 4 years.

She is a helper, a wife to a very good man, a mom to 2 great kids, a teacher and a seeker

Chrissy Sie-Merritt ~ A dreamer that wishes to transform how we navigate our way through this world, Chrissy Sie-Merritt, dives into the subtle details of life.  Inspired by the textures of all living things, Chrissy is drawn to explore the wonders of nature with paint on canvas.   Using her Yoga practice as a tool to go deeper into her artistic process, Chrissy balances a need for detail with a desire for freedom, with a free flowing drawing process using charcoal and chalk.  Gracefully dancing between the visual and healing arts world she has tapped into a sacred balance that lies within the healing powers of colour, creation, breath and movement.


What is BodyTalk? – Health Care Designed by Your Body

BodyTalk is healthcare that understands the psychology of the body and the influence it has on your health. Rather than focusing on the symptom, BodyTalk finds the hidden causes of illness by looking at the physical, emotional and environmental factors. BodyTalk is Whole-Healthcare, which means addressing the whole-person and their whole-story, using the entire context of their life to improve their health.


What do past attendees have to say?

~ My experience was supported in a beautiful way.  

~ I rarely come to this place inside of myself within groups and was surprised at the immensity of what was 'unearthed' and how it travelled with me into my dreams, and allowed me to keep working with the visions I saw.

~ The most meaningful portion of the day was the body talk session.  Energetic healing has been of great interest to me this past year.  I found it to validate many of experiences that I've had recently.

~ There was something about the food that was so satisfying. I would recommend this workshop/retreat to friends and family.

~ I did not know what to expect.  The ad said there would be yoga (dreaded this due to being so out of shape), painting and Body Talk.  The day was absolutely amazing!!!!! The yoga was gentle and I was able to do most poses.  The experience of painting was uplifting and healing.  The Body Talk is always welcome. Thank you Jen and Chrissy for a wonderful healing day!  Came home and slept for thirteen hours!
