Retreat to Remember :: a weekend immersion for women

May 31, 2019 @ 10:00 am - June 4, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

$75 – $265

For the awakening woman who is feeling called to deepen her relationship with and return home to self, soul and sisterhood.

It’s time to remember.
It’s time to come home.


This immersive weekend will be an invitation to reconnect with and turn up the volume to your internal guidance system, to build your emotional intelligence and awareness, to land you fully into presence, and to unshame and reclaim your wholeness and sacredness through body-based, spiritual and community healing and empowerment.



Join self-intimacy & embodiment teacher, coach, facilitator and intuitive Miranda Sophia for a weekend of connection, transformation, remembrance and empowerment. Use the practices of meditation, journeying and ceremony, somatic (body-based) awareness and movement medicine, orienting and nervous system regulation, breathwork, inner child healing, deepening into an intimate relationship with your inner being, and the power and support system of togetherness to expand your capacity and resilience to stay present in each moment, and gain more access to joy and pleasure.


“Loving ourselves through the process of owning our story is the bravest thing we’ll ever do.”

~Brene Brown

Located at the beautiful, intimate & healing center, Harmony Dawn, this retreat is conveniently located less than 2 hours from Toronto, 1 hour 15 minutes from Durham Region, 40 minutes from the Port Hope area and 1 hour from Belleville.


Harmony Dawn was custom designed as a green retreat center, using most of the sustainable energy technologies available and situated on 50 acres of healing land.  It was voted one of the greenest buildings in Canada. It also incorporates owners Andy’sand Nicola’s Feng-shui and Yin-Yang knowledge, which endows the building and its surroundings with a harmonious, safe, cozy, in-nature feeling, commonly noted by our guests. It is nestled into a hill top overlooking Rice Lake, surrounded by 50 acres of rolling meadows and healing forest, which lead to the swimming-friendly lake. A Harmony Dawn guest, a noted shaman, informed them that the building was located in the center of a giant Medicine Wheel and conveyed supportive messages to them from the ancestors, animals, birds (including 3 rare golden eagles) and rocks. At Retreat to Remember, we will be tapping into this potent energy wheel and ancient wisdom as a vehicle of transformation.


Sleeping accommodations at Harmony Dawn are shared, as HD believes one bedroom and washroom per person is environmentally extravagant and unsustainable. The environment at Harmony Dawn, and the intention of this retreat, is to promote connection, community and collaboration. There are multiple rooms with two bunk beds each and the top floor is loft style with zen-style single beds. Beds are first come first serve, which some people feel nervous about, but we have not yet had any issues with it. If anything arises, there is always room for adjustments.

Learn more about the Harmony Dawn facilities here.

:: FOOD ::

Nourish your body, mind & soul with organic, vegetarian meals crafted by Nicola James. Nicola uses Yin-Yang balance in her cooking and sees every meal as herbal medicine. She is a passionate advocate for fresh, local and organic food whenever possible. Harmony Dawn grows a selected variety of organic herbs and vegetables and have access to a wider variety within the local organic farming community. Nicola has 2 best-selling cookbooks available for sale as well!

If you are not a vegetarian, or are nervous about not feeling nourished and sustained by the food, I can assure you that out of every meal I have had with each group, there has not been one that every single person wasn’t drooling over, and nobody has gone hungry (in fact, most of the time we aren’t quite ready for the next meal!)

Learn more about the cuisine at Harmony Dawn here.
