Inspiring clients and clinicians to rediscover their Wild Talents

Retreats

Retreats

Retreats are an incredible way of going deep quickly and getting long lasting results. When you are out of your day to day environment, your mind can be freed to work on and focus on what is underneath the daily routines. The retreat format include initial sessions with me, RN supervised Medicine sessions if you qualify for Ketamine treatment and therapeutic preparatory sessions in order to really get the best of the experience. Then after the retreat, two integration sessions are scheduled so that you have a place to reflect and bring your retreat experience into your daily life skillfully.

My 2023 retreats take place in a gorgeous local retreat center on Whidbey Island and also a modern lodge here in Bellingham. They are guided by me, Karen King, MS,LMHC -a MAPS MDMA Assisted and Psychedelic Assisted Therapy trainee, psychotherapist of 15 years and experienced group leader. They are co-led by my staff including a Ketamine Assisted Therapy trained therapist and an RN. Locally catered vegetarian meals are included. Each retreat offers calming contemplative practices and at least one Ketamine Assisted Session and Integration period.

Middle Years Women’s Group Retreat
April 13-16, 2023
(space still available)

Grab a cuppa and let’s do some deep chatting. What is not to love about this idea? A group of seeking Middle Years women like you, deep thinkers, introspectors and creatives. At this phase of our lives, we often find ourselves on the precipice of who we thought we were and who we actually wanted to become.

This retreat offers a warm, dynamic place to reflect and focus on the idea that we can allow ourselves to surprise ourselves, to invite in change with openness and humor. We will all look around the circle of amazing women and settle into the knowing that we are exactly who and where we need to be in our lives. Yoga and Meditation will be offered, as well as group circles and a Ketamine Assisted Therapy lozenge session and Integration.

The setting is a beautiful small, private retreat center on Whidbey Island, with all delicious vegetarian meals prepared for you by a local chef. All you need to do is prepare yourself with the juicy individual and group sessions we have laid out for you prior to the retreat, then show up, rest into the journey and be transformed. Space is limited to 6 explorers.

Next Steps

First, you will schedule a time to sit down with me and we can determine if this is good fit for what you are looking for. Ketamine is not the medicine for everyone and we want to make sure that psychologically this is something that you are ready for and have a good community of support around you when you return to “real life”.

Then, if you are a good candidate for this experience, I will make an appointment for you with a Psychiatric ARNP I collaborate with who is specifically trained in assessing you for Ketamine treatment. If they approve you for the experience, then our journey together truly begins!

InvestmentEnergetically and Financially

This is a therapeutic retreat, so has some unique steps and processes. In a regular retreat you can simply show up without meeting with the leader or the group prior and without any prep work. But Ketamine calls for some deep and unique preparation both psychologically and medically. Also the depth that we want this retreat to take you requires some emotional safety and trust with the wonderful women you will be journeying with. Yay, more therapy!
