• Retreats

    Sometimes we just need to pause. How would it feel to be nourishment on every level — physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually? Time at “The Place of Pause” is customized to meet your needs. Offerings include yoga, meditation, Ayurvedic practices, beach walks, hikes, cooking, art and always quiet nooks for reading, writing, visioning and connecting.


    Calm surroundings and nourishing meals complete your experience. Paula is a Certified Nutritional Practitioner, a graduate from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Toronto. For her, healthy food is much more than the food itself. While she starts with locally grown ingredients, she knows food carries energy. Do you remember Grandma saying, “I made it with love?” You really can put love into food! The energy in the room and the people around the table also increase its nutritional value. Her menus are colourful (we eat with our eyes first!), fresh, plant-based and they take into consideration the theme for the weekend and special dietary needs.


    Choose to step out of busy and into nourishment!
