Travel: We will travel about 2 miles or less by canoe to "the Ancient Island" where we will sleep close to the earth beneath the stars. The Island is a 14 acre island located on a lake in Monmouth, Maine. It will serve as our piece of earth for deep healing, connection and teachings.

Each time I visit the island, I have a renewed sense of peace and wonder. The Island has amazing energy in itself..and we are welcome to explore the hiking trails, swim, and jump off the rope swing if we so desire.

More importantly this is about slowing down.
To listen.
To connect with your spirit.
To connect with the earth.
To enjoy the world of vibration and ancient teachings in community.

We will cook our meals directly on the campfire, living in our small community over the weekend.

We will begin the day with simple practices to ease the mind and gracefully step into the beauty of the day. Breathing, movement meditation, and simple practices that help bring us to stillness so we can better hear the messages that come from the inner core essence of who we are and the messages the earth has to share with us at this time.

Learn to access the earth's energy for healing and helping you to clarify your direction. Learn rituals and practices that you can bring home to continue to deepen your connection.

Take some time to live simply, to bring stillness to your life and ease to your mind, to clarify your truth and joy, and to breathe life into your dreams.

Take the time to remember who you really are.

This retreat will be Guided by Jaclyn Ouillette, Wilderness Wisdom Guide, Certified Practitioner of Energy Medicine & Registered Maine Wilderness Guide


Jaclyn has been leading wilderness journeys focused on personal growth and awareness since 2004. With a devastating battle with "uncurable, late-stage" lyme disease Jaclyn found herself on a 7-year journey that forced her to slow down and re-evaluate what was really important to her. Jaclyn had to re-establish her deep connection with the earth, her focus on health, well being, and ultimately her own truth. Jaclyn believes that in living simply and close to the earth, our true selves are remembered and brought to light.
