Forest Retreat

– – –


in La Belle Province.
Thursday, October 14 – Sunday, October 17, 2021


We’ve all been inside too long. Many have longed to sit together to share words, stories, laughter, and silence.

Now, we can.

Guided writing practice, body awareness, & meditation surrounded by the lusciousness of a maple forest… Doesn’t that sound divine?

Manoir de la Foret’s spacious meeting rooms, elegant bedrooms, generous terrace, first-class cuisine, and acres of forest make for the ideal place to gather. A limit of twelve participants offers both a sense of intimacy and the comfort of privacy.

For practitioners at all levels – from aspiring to accomplished. Our approach is gentle, inclusive, and inviting.

When: Thursday, October 14 to Sunday, October 17, 2021.

Where: Manoir de la Forêt, 32 Chemin River, Cantley, QC, Canada, J8V 3A1

The retreat begins with Dinner on Thursday, October 14, followed by an introductory Circle & warm up writing

Friday & Saturday begins with morning outdoor awareness exercises.

After breakfast, we write together from prompts offered by Deepam. This includes supportive feedback to freshly generated work.

The afternoons feature free time to write, walk, meditate, rest. You will be given an optional writing exercise to work on through the afternoon.
