Wellness Weekend

You ARE the greatest project you will ever work on! Come spend a few days to take a time out, get quiet, get creative and work on the project of you.

These transformational wellness weekend retreats are an opportunity to experience a Creative Quest, Wilderness Adventure, and Health Retreat all in one.   Centered around growing and blooming each person’s creativity, education, self-expression, wellness, and artistic sharing is an experience everyone should have at least once in their lifetime to free the spirit and ignite that inner spark.  The ultimate goal of these wellness weekends is to take a time out, re-calibrate your wellness and refocus your mindset for living a more balanced and aligned life. As we disconnect from our devices, we reconnect with ourselves, our community, nature and the world at large. Days will start reflectively and we will conclude our evenings connecting over a balanced meal and relaxation.

Each 2.5-day retreat is founded in experiential group process supplemented by education and action through:

  • Disconnecting from your digital confines
  • Unlocking creativity and awareness through self-examination, storywork and journaling
  • Discovering therapy of nature and play
  • Balancing thoughts, feelings and action
  • Connecting with self and others
  • Practicing stillness
  • Developing new practices for centering focus

Located in peacefully remote Historic Rugby, Tennessee, the Victorian Village was founded as a Utopian community in 1880 by British author and social reformer, Thomas Hughes. It is a rich historic community nestled between Big South Fork National Recreation Area and the Rugby State Natural Area. Non-profit Historic Rugby was founded in 1966 to restore and preserve the village. The village houses a visitor centre and theatre, hosts various weekend arts, crafts, and antique festivities, as well as offers walking tours of the historic buildings. Stay in one of the original Rugby Victorian lodgings and enjoy breakfast and evening meals prepared at Coach Kara J Kemp’s home, Anam Cara, which will include a customized menu for  participants attending.

Attendance is limited to 8 people to maintain the intimacy and sacredness of these sessions.
