Our hostess and organizer, Michelle, is an educator, published poet, and passionate about creating spaces full of magic. The objective of this retreat is to create a safe, inclusive space that feeds our minds, hearts, and spirits. We will intertwine reflection, nutrition, education, movement, and art to tap into creative expression and cultivate creative goals that empower you all year.
Workshops will be provided each morning focusing on writing, reflecting, goal setting, and personal growth. There will be a balance between free & structured time. People can plan to go to the beach, Practical Magic Town, or local Wineries throughout their stay. Tea, coffee, and a light breakfast will be available every morning. Brunch & dinner will be prepared by a Local Chef who will be on site. Structured and unstructured time for yoga, hikes, and dance sessions are available throughout our empowerment retreat. Free Tarot and Zodiac chart readings will also be included. Magic and creative exercises will be thoughtfully intertwined into everything we do.

We will be staying at a beautiful house in Langley, Washington, where you can enjoy the freedom of your own bedroom or share it in a communal style of lodging. The house is spacious and tucked away on Whidbey Island. Retreat goers will be picked up at the Seattle Airport and driven two hours to our little oasis for the weekend. Once you arrive in Seattle, we will take care of the rest. If you prefer to have your own car throughout the weekend it will be up to you to rent a car and navigate the ferry system to meet us at Whidbey Island. We celebrate your adventurous spirit!
Since space is limited, we ask everyone to complete a retreat application to ensure the safety and security of our retreat goers. Please complete the questionnaire to help us create a magical experience for you and everyone involved. Filling out this application does not ensure event registration. There will be a follow-up email that will include registration and payment options.


We ask that everyone pay a $600 nonrefundable deposit to ensure their spot. We have payment plan options and can reimburse you
up to 30 days before the retreat dates. We also highly recommend purchasing travel insurance to help with unexpected emergencies or plan changes. Once your application is turned in, we will review it and send a follow-up email with extensive information about the retreat.
