Young women will know serenity in what National Geographic has ranked one of the 10 Best Summer Trips on Earth. Muskoka, a natural playground two hours north of Toronto, offers an unplugged pace that’s a world away from Canada’s largest city. The 2,500-square-mile escape boasts 8,699 miles of shoreline, 17 historic towns and villages, and countless waterfalls and lakes bordered by the granite peaks of Algonquin Provincial Park to the east and the 30,000 islands of Georgian Bay Islands National Park to the west.
A place to cultivate strength, find your inner north star, and remember the power of sisterhood, our retreats move organically, following the rhythm of the moment. Together we will explore the spectrums that exist between body image and embodiment, witnessing and active leadership, online connection and connecting with nature, independence and interdependence – all while getting our Om on in Downward Dog on the dock, listening to the crickets by the lakeside fire, applying organic facial masks, and doing what young women do best: laughing until our tummies ache. Young women soften and embolden in this within and without compassion training that understands sisterhood as the last frontier. Designed to draw forth the gems of radical self acceptance, leadership and resilience, and connection, this will be one weekend that goes down in the adolescent journals of 'not to be forgotten.'
Sleep three nights in a beautiful four bedroom, two bathroom home on a small lake set just outside the village of Port Carling. Surrounded by forest with summer cottages through the woods on either side, the home overlooks the water and if you're up at dawn, (not with Brie ;) you can catch the sunrise through the early morning mist. The dining room has a glass ceiling, making it a star-gazing sanctuary at night. One room has bunk beds, the others doubles or queens. There is additional floor sleeping space in the recreation room downstairs.
Young women coming in by air will be retrieved from the Pearson International Airport in Toronto on Thursday evening and returned to the airport on Sunday.
