Last Minute Spots Are Available For Our Summer Heart Foundations Retreat (August 26-29, 2021) Just North of Muskoka

What might it be like to come home to your heart, living by the guidance of your inner wisdom while nourishing hope and growing the passions that fulfill you?

It is a precious and delicate time as we prepare to regroup with others after having been in physical isolation for some time. Many are seeking safe and enjoyable ways to reconnect and rejuvenate.

Imagine…playing outside, daydreaming in nature, and honouring your ability to create beauty in this delicate and powerful time.

There is a need to be gentle with ourselves and others as we create a new way of being together. Like the flowers of a garden, we are preparing to open our blossoms and display our unique colours so that we may soak up the warmth of the summer sun.

The Way of the Circle Centre at Northern Edge Algonquin offers a variety of safe spaces for gathering and connection. Spending as much time outdoors in the beauty of nature is a vital component of the Heart Blossom Retreat experience that makes it so special.

In the Way of the Circle, retreat participants will co-create their heart-centered retreat experience by weaving together their gifts, desires, questions, and dreams. What if it was possible to co-create a new dream for humanity and Mother Earth, engaging the most powerful tool we have?

What would it be like to give ourselves permission to experience our unlimited potential, for a greater purpose, inviting our imagination to take us where we have never gone before?

The Heart Foundations series offers one program each season, open to participants of all experience levels. Each retreat has a guiding theme that explores different aspects of building a strong and sustainable foundation of heart-centered living.

Each retreat experience is co-created by the participants through a process we call the Way of the Circle. Participants tap into their intuition, unique gifts, soul yearnings, day and nighttime dreams, innate wisdom, and helping spirits to co-create living ceremony, going deeper into rediscovering their greatest leader, teacher and healer within. This allows us each to receive a magical learning experience that meets our individual needs while being of service to the greater circle. Through the heart’s gateway within, we are able to respond with our innate gifts and abilities, fulfilling the greatest needs we perceive in the world.

No matter who we are, or where we each are on our journey in life, the heart is our meeting place . . .

Universal Teachings

Our circle community is comprised of a beautifully diverse group of heart-centered individuals from a variety of cultural and spiritual backgrounds. During a program participants may feel called to share a personal tradition or practice with the group. We welcome the universal learnings that come through our diverse circle culture: nourishing love, peace and unity, and connecting to nature.

“The Heart Foundations are vehicles for change. Within the safe and supportive structure of the Way of the Circle, we realize our inter-connectedness, traveling deep within to retrieve the gifts we came into this world to share. Being seen, feeling heard, inspiring each other, and honoring one another’s values, we heal the root cause of isolation and scarcity. Coming together we undergo a joyous alchemical process, transmuting the dream of fear, divisiveness and disharmony into the dream of Love, Unity, and Peace. Our survival as a human species depends on us remembering ancient wisdom, and our connection to the Spirit that lives in all things.”
