Enjoying two days and two nights (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) living communally as a small village in the North Georgia Mountains, where we can free our minds from our everyday schedules and build with Mother Nature. The mountainside scenery, rustic cabins and natural surroundings will help us disconnect from modern day life and reconnect with the infinite potential of us using Plants as Medicine. Our Winter Retreat will include a series of short classes allowing participants to study a wide array of Ancient Plant Medicine Remedies, various preparation techniques which have aided and assisted with remedying a laundry list of ailments. Each participant will leave with a better understanding of how to create their very own Tinctures, Tea Blends, Syrups, Salves, Butters, Ointments, Oils, Capsules, Tablets & Aromatherapy Blends. Our Winter Retreat is structured for Beginner to Intermediate Level participants. Check these package deals out!

The Cabin Lodging will be located in Ellijay, Georgia during December 10th-12th 2021. The cabins will be in full operational use. Please note that everyone will be sharing rooms in accommodation blocks, unless you purchase a Master Suite or Master Couples Suite. In order to minimize the risk of Covid-19 on the retreat, we ask everyone to test themselves twice before they arrive: i) three (3) days before the retreat starts ii) before leaving home on the day of the retreat. This will be based on an honor system.
During our retreat weekend we will explore, discover and highlight what we know about Plant Medicine from research, documentation and practical usage. We will briefly touch on the various schools of teaching from Zulu to Native America to Gullah Geechee to Ayurvedic to Chinese Traditional Medicine (TCM). We will experience being with each other as well as being by ourselves. Exploring conversation without overlooking silence. Each of these precious experiences will help reveal how we can stay connected to Mother Nature & Our Ancestors.
The 2-Day / 2-Night accommodation takes place in a series of Mountain Cabins situated in the heart of the Ellijay’s North Georgia Mountains. The beautifully rustic and grounding wood cabins are totally PRIVATE. The Cabin Lodge provides an earthy picturesque-like landscape that will help each of us connect with the idea of becoming a Whole Healer by way of Plant Medicine which can only be provided through Mother Nature. The panoramic views are breathtaking.
Medicine. Mountains. Cabins. Panoramic views of Valleys, Ponds, Creeks & Blue Ridge Mountain Tops. The Cabin Lodging is clean, earthy, and extremely grounding. The series of rustic natural wooden Cabins also provides a Mountain view Hot Tub, Fireplace, Fire Pit, Eco-friendly Game Room and Rocking Chairs on the Front Porch to sit, chill, relax and unwind. The series of cabins also provide “Well Water.” The cabins run a Well Water Septic System!!!
The North Georgia Mountains are one of the best places to disconnect from the Concrete Jungle and reconnect to Mother Nature. This is a place to Meditate, Recharge and TAP IN!
