Special Event

The meditation hall at Wonderwell Mountain Refuge​



What does Love really mean?

From a Buddhist perspective, Love is the unconditional wish for happiness and well-being. How do we love ourselves and our bodies in this way? What if these very bodies are an expression of love itself? How can we embody it, live it and be it? This is what we will explore through yin-yang yoga and other movement practices, meditation and social silence.

Yin yoga is a deep, quiet and passive practice while the yang style is gently flowing with a slow and therapeutic approach. Shake Your Soul® is a playful dance-based program. Teachings from various traditions and sources along with mindfulness activities, journaling and meditation will enhance the movement practices, while the silence provides a powerful and transformative container.

All elements of this retreat are designed to support and embody meditation practice. As the Buddha taught, there are 4 positions in which we can meditate: sitting, lying, standing and walking.


This retreat is all-inclusive of room, meals, teachings, teacher fee, yoga & dance supplies and retreat materials.  



Retreat differs from vacation. 

It’s a time for extended practice and relaxation; a time for quiet reflection, contemplation and inner inquiry. Alone yet together!


Retreat time removes us from our usual busyness and provides an opportunity to relax - becoming less identified with our conditioned tendencies and more connected to our Natural state. 

  • The retreat was truly beyond what I could have imagined. 


  • The yoga and meditation retreat is a wonderful time to step back and enter within to contemplate what might be released and healed.


  • Janine is an an amazing person with a wealth of information that she shares so willingly, so gently, and effortlessly. 


  • Going on retreat is one of the greatest gifts I have ever given myself.


  • Janine's retreats are an intimate, rich and varied experience.
