As our team monitors state and health department guidelines for what is safe and possible in this time, we are laying the groundwork to offer a safe and nourishing place where you may slow down and recall a deeper connection to yourself, others, and the wonders of nature.
Here’s the plan: you are invited to a personal contemplative retreat spanning five days and four nights with a stay in Cabin Village or the Farmhouse. You will arrive on Wednesday in time for dinner, and leave sometime after breakfast on Sunday. 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.
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.
In order for this to work with our reduced staffing, we have created a simple structure for a single person or a closely related couple in a shared room. Family pricing is available for groups of four or more reserving the Farmhouse. The cost is fully inclusive of meals and four nights lodging. We’re limiting registration to ensure plenty of space for physical distancing and expect that the cabins will fill up quickly.
We hope to see you on the land! Additional retreat dates will be announced, so keep watching for updates.
