This immersive retreat will take inspiration from the ultimate guru herself, Mother Nature. Each day will be dedicated to and fully themed around one of the 5 Natural Elements - Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space. This retreat will balance your energy, and inspire your soul.


THE LOCATION

WHAT'S UNIQUE

“Located deep in the rugged heart of western Maine’s Lakes and Mountains region, Nurture Through Nature is the state’s first green-certified, Earth-friendly retreat center and has been providing individuals, couples and groups an environmentally conscious getaway since 1999.

Visitors can explore the retreat’s 33 forested acres nestled along the lower slopes of Pleasant Mountain along a maze of private hiking trails that lead to a spring-fed mountain brook and sweeping views of Mount Washington and the White Mountains. This is an ideal place to reconnect with nature.” - EcoWatch, May 2016

YOUR ECO-CONSCIOUS GETAWAY

“The goal of community sustainability is to establish local economies that are economically viable, environmentally sound and socially responsible.    We have a strong commitment and practice in supporting these principles by purchasing from local businesses, including independently owned shops, farms and service contractors. We do our very best to pay our support team above average wages for their good work in maintaining our facilities and serving our guests. The rates that we charge our guests begin an energetic and financial circle that allows us to provide green power, organic ingredients on our retreats, local products and living wages to our team of amazing people. At Nurture Through Nature we continue to create a circle of conscious giving and receiving.” - www.ntnretreats.com

LIFE ON RETREAT

WHAT TO EXPECT

7 Days Of Transformation and Connection

July 11: Arrive Fully

On Day One, you will have an ample amount of time to settle in to your accommodations. Evening practice will be focused on becoming present in the retreat space with one another - body, mind and spirit. 

July 12: Earth Day

All of Day Two's activities will be inspired by the Earth element. Our yoga practice for the day will embody the earth element, we’ll adventure out on a meditative hike, and participate in a service project to clean up our planet (more to be announced on that, soon).

July 13: Water Day

Day Three's activities will take inspiration from and include the Water element. Today's yoga practice will embody the water element, we’ll partake in a guided canoe excursion (optional), and you will have the opportunity to partake in a cleansing ritual relating to Water.

July 14: Fire Day

Day Four will be all about the element of Fire. Take part in a fiery, invigorating yoga asana practice and a releasing fire ceremony.

July 15: Air Day

On Day Five, experience the Air element through a breathing meditation, a liberating yoga practice, and a Make Your Own Prayer Flag ritual.

July 16: Space Day

On our Sixth and last full day together, the Space element will be our main inspiration. With meditation, restorative yoga, and yoga nidra, this element will bring the retreat to a close in the most perfectly balanced way.

July 17: Prepare to Head Back

Our last day will conclude in one final yoga asana practice that will call upon all 5 of the elements for inspiration. Feeling perfectly primed to head back to the "real" world, you will have plenty of time to pack up your belongings and begin your journey home.

TESTIMONIALS

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

"My trip was amazing!!  It wasn’t just about the location and the Yoga(which was awesome!!!)  It was about bonding with my tribe and learning about myself. Getting out of my comfort zone and facing my fears. Caitlin has a way about bringing out my emotions and making me feel good about myself. Any self judgement or doubts are gone when I’m around her. She has the most beautiful soul. I am so fortunate to have met her. I would happily be a part of her tribe again." - Tammy B

“If you are looking for a secluded place to relax, this is it. I prefer to call it "glamping" as everything you need for a comfortable yet rustic retreat is there.” - Alana T
