Spring Equinox Retreat 

March 15th-17th 2024

at Zen on the Lake,  Waterfront Retreat Home in For Erie, ON

A tranquil weekend of holistic healing for women only

The Spring Equinox

Since the Winter Solstice in December, the days very slowly begin to get longer and longer once again. The Equinox is when both day and night are equal. It is a sign of rebirth, fresh beginnings and a growing sense of vitality as we continue to receive more and more sunlight each day until the Summer Solstice. This weekend will embody the essence of this transition and lead us into Spring feeling rejuvenated and inspired.

"I was lucky enough to attend Abbey's Spring Equinox Retreat and words cannot even describe how amazing it all was. It was transformative, inspiring, and magical. Abbey is an amazing yoga instructor and her energy is so radiant and felt by all. It was my first real yoga experience and I don't think anything will ever top it. Thank you so much Abbey"

-Alex Elizabeth

"A note for Abbey, after participating in her Spring Equinox retreat at Zen on the Lake in March 2023:
Abbey, Thank you from the bottom of my (now open) heart for creating the safest, warmest, most honest space and inviting women in to rest, heal and be loved. You have a gift, and I am deeply grateful that I was guided, as we all were, into the healing arena you so naturally channeled and created!
There isn’t a favourite part of the retreat because the entire thing was absolutely what my soul needed. But I wanted to specifically mention that your food is absolutely delicious. I usually have a distended and bloated tummy but I came home with some actual relief for the first time in years. Thank you for teaching us about Ayurveda, and the benefits of eating meals that nourish our specific Dosha!
This weekend was a gift, filled with countless tools and knowledge I can use in my own life to find balance and feel whole.
I will forever hold this in my heart, and feel empowered and inspired to carry it into my life and begin to walk with confidence on my path. I found you at just the right time. Thank you for handing me the Keys to my own body, mind and heart. And showing me I’ve been holding them the entire time.
If there were a real life Hero in my life it would be you. Because you Follow your own heart so openly, you demonstrate that it is possible for me to live a life that fills my heart, and honours who I am.
If anybody meets you, I promise they will feel the same beautiful light from you that we all did!"

-Ara Luckhart
