Check back to the website for updates and details!


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I have decided that it is not advisable to hold the June Retreat. I am creating a new Special Edition September Retreat in place of the former ‘Fall Retreat’ with a new schedule and exciting new lineup of instructors, adding Cynthia Rutledge, Betty Stephan, and Liisa Turunen from the Summer 2020 Retreat.
