Scenes From Our First Retreat
Join us for a weekend of:
mindfulness (and mindlessness)
What could be better than a group of women gather to laugh, eat and EXHALE?
Our retreat site is a picturesque luxury log cabin in the heart of the Hocking Hills. Imagine curling up on a squishy sofa next to warm fireplaces or enjoying the views from the wrap around porch. Feeling like exploring? There are 14 acres to walk in and enjoy (complete with a pond and waterfall). AND there is a hot tub!! You can check out all the features at Eagles Wing Lodge
The retreat will be Friday, January 20th – Sunday, January 22nd. You will be welcome to the house Friday late afternoon (check-in is at 5 pm). You will have plenty of time to put on your comfy clothes and settle in before a causal dinner and our welcome ceremony. Saturday we will have a variety of programming including yoga, workshops, quiet time and optional massages, reiki, and acupuncture appointments. Saturday evening we will have a group dinner and a short closing ceremony. Sunday morning we can enjoy a leisurely morning of yoga, breakfast and packing before departure at 11 am
Yum. Nourishment starts with quality food. All meals from dinner Friday through breakfast Sunday will be hand-prepared by our in-residence chef. Snacks and alcohol-free beverages will be provided throughout the weekend. (Feel free to bring your own alcohol to share.)

The Support Staff
Hi, I am Nancy Jane Smith. I have wanted to design a retreat experience for years. Even though I am an introvert, I have found that there is something remarkably healing about women gathering to support each other. My deepest intention is to create a space where you can relax, regroup and leave with unique insight into yourself and strategies for dealing with stress in a less dramatic way.

Acupuncture is the insertion of very thin needles in points on the body that affect change (most of the points Heidi uses are on the arms, legs, and head). It is a painless modality can help with almost anything! Most people find acupuncture to be very relaxing so come ready for some deep relaxation and healing. If you have specific health needs, you can discuss that at the time of treatment, or if you want to come just to experience a balancing treatment for overall wellness then your in for a treat. www.pinnedcommunityacupuncture.com
