Simple Life 101: 

Peace + Tools to Take it Home

Step one of this retreat is to unplug, literally. We will gladly take care of your cell phone (we will make arrangements to receive emergency calls for you), and you get to take a break from email. The constant stimulation of our modern world has played a major role in our disconnection from our own natural wisdom and vitality. Reconnect to THAT!

     •      Two night’s lodging 

     •      2 dinners, 2 breakfasts and 1 lunch

     •      120-minutes Meditation/Self-Breema instruction and       

             one-on-one support to develop and sustain your practice

     •      45-minute gentle yoga class

     •      60-min. massage treatment with foot reflexology

     •      60-min. Breema bodywork treatment

     •      60-minutes getting comfortable with walking meditation

     •      60-min. Guidance for bringing meditation and

          Self-Breema to your specific day-to-day activities

Overnight Retreats

Please take time to READ ALL details below.

Our retreats are profoundly nourishing, healing and offer a new level of support for taking these practices back into your daily life. You'll have plenty of space and ample fresh air. Safe, sacred and beautiful - these are hallmarks of what we offer.

Lodging at True Nature is a unique and rich experience in itself. You have four choices: Our sweet little cabin by the pond, our brand new tipi that faces the rising sun or The Heart Studio, an artsy addition on the house. The last option is to bring your own tent and camp right in the heart of nature. All classes and treatments will take place on our new covered deck by the pond, and both therapist and recipient will wear masks until further notice. Read about our lodging options here.

Our outside shower (yes, plenty of hot water) is an amazing experience with the sky as your roof! Its grey water system is simple and kind to the earth. As you probably know, we are composters and live GREEN. Our composting toilet cabins are not your old-fashioned outhouses, but include a state of the art system that is both clean and odorless.

Scroll down to review our overnight retreats, and please note that prices do not include tax. Group retreats have set dates noted below. Individual retreats are booked directly with us based on availability. To register, simply fill out our short online registration, and please include specific dates you are inquiring about. We will be in touch as soon as possible. You can also email us with questions or call 330-473-0402 or 330-814-9797.

Weekend Silent Retreats

May 14-16, July 23-25, Aug. 6-8

Our Silent Retreats have become a retreat that we are known for based on our unique blend of classes in yoga, simple meditation and Self-Breema exercises. For those with the desire to go deeper into their practice and/or create a strong foundation in meditative arts that they wish to sustain, this retreat offers the most support. Both challenging and liberating, our Silent Retreats provide a lot of classtime and the immersion in nature that guests have grown to love.

Natural Building Workshop

May 20-23 (Partial & Full Attendance Options)

Come join us and Uncle Mud (aka Chris McClellan) and learn how to build an earthen oven and a beautiful garden wall. Participants will be taught what goes into foundations, a little bit of stone work, plus we will have plenty of fun. Chris is a seasoned natural builder with a wealth of wisdom and humor to share. You'll learn how to mix cob and work with this natural building material. Since Dave participated in a Strawbale Building workshop in 2013, we have been wishing to offer a natural building experience here at True Nature. We are delighted to have Chris here to share this to you!  

Weekday Silent Retreats

May 24-27, June 14-17, July 12-15, August 9-12

Another new addition for 2021: We are now offering an extended 3 night version of our Silent Retreat. We have been intending to do this for quite a while, and now is the right time. Participants will receive the same support as what is given during our weekend version, but in an extended format and with additional Breema treatment time. Both new and returning retreat participants are invited to join in this deeply-transformational experience!

Pandemic Recovery

A 3 Night Retreat

June 28-July 1, July 26-29, August 23-26

Profound replenishment and refreshment, these are the aim of this retreat. You'll experience a balance of free time and class time that allows deep rest and restoration. This retrat includes 3 nights/4 days, and more treatment time than our other small group retreats. If you have been especially worn down and weatered by challenges during the pandemic, this may be the best retreat for you. Come and be nurtured and have time to reflect before returning home.

Family Retreat

June 11-13 and July 9-11

Another brand new retreat for 2021, we have created the Family Retreat to allow your whole crew experience True Nature! Participants will have a chance to play and explore as a family, group activities with us and parents will receive individual class time and treatment time. Please note that this retreat does require two parents to attend so that you can take turns receiving treatments and class time.
