Restoration & Renewal Retreats

Your time here is open for walking the trails, visiting the gardens, and finding a rhythm that brings a deeper breath of vitality into your day. As the Whidbey Institute finds our footing with this new season of gathering, we will begin to offer some activities and learning journeys on the land that you can choose to join as you are called.

Chef Christyn will be serving her fabulous meals and following all health department guidelines. Meadow Row restrooms are semi-private, most often shared with one other person. Hillside Cabin restrooms are shared with several other people.

“My days on retreat at Whidbey institute were nourishing in every way: a place of complete quiet punctuated only by twitters of sparrows and quail, and the soft hoo-ing of Great Horned Owls at night; beautiful, delicious, healthful meals; and time for walking in contemplation on forest trails and labyrinth. Extra gratitude for Wi-Fi in my cabin for the one Zoom meeting I couldn’t miss. Thanks to all for offering this opportunity for renewal!”—Jean M

Note: Open Retreats, in September and October, begin on Wednesday and end on Sunday after breakfast; Restoration & Renewal Retreats, in November and beyond, begin on Thursday and end on Sunday after lunch. The retreat prices reflect this change. 

We hope to see you on the land! Additional retreat dates will be announced, so keep watching for updates.
