Harmonious Transformation 2012


January 20, 21, 22, 2012

In Gearhart on the Oregon Coast

In addition to our usual array of energy healers, we will have a variety of sound healers.  Using voice, harp, singing bowls, drums, rattles, and (?) we will come together to transform our lives through harmony.   This cooperative-retreat is designed for anyone who wants to explore the healing power of sound, and movement.  Those who wish to, share their gifts and all are enriched. We will also spend time in healing circle and empowerment circle.  This is also Jeanette’s Birthday Retreat, so there will be extra fun and treats for everyone. A great way to start your year!

Here’s what we are planning:

*Sound Healing

*Reiki Body work



* Tibetan Metal Crystal Singing Bowls

* Harp and other instruments to contribute to a harmonic demonstration.

Do you have an instrument (or a voice) to bring?

*Empowerment Circle

*Healing Circle

*Morning Yoga and Meditation

*Create a Vision-board, Planting Seeds for the Coming Year

*Ideas????(You are important in this co-creative process—

What would you like to see or do?)

It’s your TURN!  You won’t want to miss this weekend of relaxation and fellowship with healers and nurturers.  This cooperative-retreat is designed for anyone who wants to explore the healing power of fun, movement and creativity.  Lots of healers from various modalities will be on hand to share their gifts.  Participants will be enriched by others who have gifts to share, and all are welcome to share the wisdom and knowledge unique to them.  There will be plenty of time for sharing energy medicine in the healing circle.


As with all of the retreats, we will have fabulous food, prepared by Emily Rowan.

I hope you will join us as we prepare a reTREAT you will never forget.

You should come.

You deserve it!

The Cooperative Retreat

Welcome to the concept of the cooperative retreat.  This means that each person will bring a portion of food to contribute to the menu, and to help with kitchen duties and clean up. Of course, we will have terrific food.  The meals will be thoughtfully and deliciously prepared, offering mostly vegetarian cuisine.  We will offer dairy free and gluten-free alternatives for those with sensitivities.

Mind Body Spa

Builds community as it creates the space for folks to fully relax and experience authentic connection to self and others who wish to achieve mind/body/spirit balance.  Come share your unique self with others and be enriched by the deep healing you will find here.



Jeanette Chardon, MSW “I believe in the ability of each retreat participant to heal themselves and others.  I believe in the synergy of group intention and dynamics.  When we call each other to our highest and best, when we expect that of each other, the community that we form is incredibly powerful.  Each  retreat is a powerful and supportive  community in which we are safe to be our true, beautiful, delicious selves.”

Emily Rowan “I’m a modern shaman, kitchen magician, artist extraordinaire and devotee of sacred storytelling. My work (and my cooking) is flavored by many traditions and cultures from around the world because the Wisdom of The Way is found everywhere.”
