A Free Spirit Life Retreat to Nurture Your Heart & Soul

October 4th – 7th, 2018 (1 spot left)


November 1st – 4th, 2018 (1 spot left)

Relax, Restore, Reconnect & Retreat

Imagine stepping out of your everyday life to reconnect to peace, joy and relaxation.

No pressure, no stress, no responsibilities and no distractions. Just a small group of beautiful, like-minded women and the time and space to reconnect to your true self.

Imagine a beautiful location where you can relax and renew your spirit.

A place where every detail is in place and you don’t have to worry or work. Somewhere for you to just BE…and to let your mind quiet, your heart open and your body relax.  A place where you can explore your creativity.  A place where you can practice meditation, enjoy nature and eat delicious food.  A place where you can connect with amazing people.

A place that is warm, supportive and safe where you can be exactly who you are.

This is my dream for you.

This is why I am hosting a relaxing retreat at the beautiful Timber Creek House in Drexel, Missouri.  I’ve hosted a retreat here before, and I promise that you will absolutely love it here!  It is a house filled with love and for the people who’ve come on retreat here, it has been a life-changing, magical experience.

This wellness retreat is for women in all stages of life.  The yoga and meditation will be accommodated to serve all the needs of our group, so previous experience in yoga or meditation is NOT necessary.

Email Shannon with any questions you have: shannon@afreespiritlife.com.

SECURE YOUR RESERVATION: You are required to pay $100 to secure your reservation.  Your $100 deposit will be refunded if someone from the waiting list can fill your spot or if you find someone to replace you. If there’s no one on the waiting list and you cannot find a replacement yourself, the $100 deposit will not be refundable.

After securing your $100 deposit on PayPal, the remaining retreat fee won’t be due until check out day – either October 7th or November 4th, depending on which retreat you are attending.

*THIS AMOUNT IS DEDUCTED FROM YOUR TOTAL.  After paying the $100 to save your spot, you will owe $150 for the facilitator honorarium when you check out from the retreat, rather than $250.

If you cancel after September 1st, 2018 and cannot find a replacement (and there’s no one on the waiting list either), you will be charged the full retreat fee.

Once you’ve reserved your spot, you will receive a personal email with details.  We can also help you find a roommate and coordinate ride share for the weekend.  (If you’re flying to KC, a shuttle service often used by Timber Creek can be scheduled by calling Brian at: 913-263-5392.)

“Loving-kindness for yourself does not mean making sure you’re feeling good all the time – trying to set up your life so that you’re comfortable at every moment.  Rather it means setting up your life so that you have time for meditation and self-reflection, for kindhearted, compassionate self-honesty. in this way you become more attuned to seeing when you’re biting the hook, when you’re getting caught in the undertow of emotions, when you’re grasping and when you’re letting go.  This is the way you become a true friend to yourself just as you are.  There is no step more important than this.” ~ Pema Chödrön

“When you look at a tree and perceive its stillness, you become still yourself.  You connect with it at a very deep level.  You feel a oneness with whatever you perceive in and through stillness.  Feeling the oneness of yourself with all things is true love.”

~ Eckhart Tolle

I am so excited to share this very special retreat weekend with you!
