With Harriet Cooke M.D. and Leslie Huddart, L.Ac.
In Gearhart on the Oregon Coast
A Spiritual Retreat By:
Mind Body Spa
Food and nutrition have been integrated with spirituality for as long as humanity has realized our dependence on the natural world, and has felt our interconnection with the Spirit of all things. Our upcoming retreat, Sacred Nutrition, May 17-19 will focus on the physical and metaphysical aspects of food and nutrition. Harriet Cooke, MD will be joining us and we will emphasize vegetarian, gluten-free cooking with Green Smoothies daily!
The weekend will include discussion about the sacredness of what we eat, how we eat, how we share food, and how we raise the energy of our food through spiritual practice. Over the weekend each person will be encouraged to develop our own spiritual practice with food. Many of us eat to fill the emptiness we feel inside of ourselves. The work for the weekend will be to learn ways to break these old patterns, and to understand mindful eating as a way to heal ourselves. The weekend will also involve a Healing Circle, and opportunities to express our spiritual journey with food through art, poetry, music and dance.
We will explore deeply the spiritual aspects of eating…
- Eating as a spiritual practice… we are in a receptive and vulnerable state
- Reverence for the food that is being offered to us… acknowledging and appreciating its role in our well-being
- Becoming aware of our bodies… our hunger signals and the “feedback” our bodies give us in regard to the food we are eating
- Conscious, intentional eating vs. emotional eating
- A spiritual relationship with food as an antidote for food-addictions and eating-disorders
- Discover pleasure in eating.

Welcome! It is my wish and prayer that if you are looking for better health in body, mind, or spirit, you will find relief here. My entire practice is built upon the premise that you are perfect in your spirit, and that the more aligned you are in Spirit, the healthier you will become. When working with people, I use a variety of mind-body healing modalities, including deep relaxation, guided imagery, meditation, Reiki, sound healing, and many other mind-body techniques, using only those with which you resonate. This is an intuitive journey. You will begin to tap in to the deep wisdom of your body. Through this process, you will learn how to heal yourself through connecting deeply with your body and spirit.
We understand that we are all composed of energy. When our energy is imbalanced, we notice symptoms – either physical or emotional symptoms. By understanding your energetic basis and doing simple mind-body exercises, you will increase your capacity to heal yourself from within.
Our “energy-body” (otherwise called spirit or soul) is at the very core of who we are. It permeates our being, giving structure to every cell of our bodies. Our physical body is a reflection of all the experiences of our life. Negative or traumatic experiences leave an imprint upon our energy body, which can lead to blockages in the flow of life-force within us. Eventually we may experience imbalances in our sense of physical and emotional wellbeing. Getting to the underlying cause of disease, pain or illness, you can learn to adjust your energy and maintain perfect health. I simply act as an observer and facilitator during your journey.
If you are ready to change, to move through your energy blockages and create perfect health and balance of mind, body and spirit, call today. I will be most happy to support your journey to radiant health.
Mind Body Spa has three pillars of healing:
- Emotional Balance

Retreats offer opportunities to sink into an intensive experience of one or more of these mind/body/spirit modalities.

You will experience a deepening of the modalities presented that will allow you to move forward with renewed motivation to remain balanced and well. For upcoming retreats, see the Retreats page.
