reflections on Personal Transformations AT PREVIOUS MOONSET WISDOM RETREATS
Yes, we love meditation!
But our meditation retreat is about more than just meditation. We help you build a tool-kit to bring more balance and well-being into your life.
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE
Over the course of our time together, you'll be guided through a number of experiences that will build on our transformational theme for the retreat. We'll start each day at 8am with a morning meditation, and end our days later in the evening. There will be group sessions to enjoy, bonding with amazing women, personal exercises to delve in to, and savouring wonderful food. All of our Pathways to Peace retreats will include the following:
You will learn to meditate and/or build your existing practice.
Enjoy teachings from modern & ancient wisdom traditions.
Experience the calming effect of mini-Reiki sessions.
Express your learning through a creative project.
Enjoy the physical movement of Qigong as a moving meditation.
All meals, snacks, beverages & activities are included, from Thursday evening through Sunday afternoon.
Everything that you do at our retreats is experiential and meant to enhance your journey.
You'll experience Aha! moments, joy, laughter, celebration and friendship. It's the perfect time to give yourself the gift of a fresh perspective and a renewed You!
What Are You Looking For?
To feel less stress?
To find more inner peace?
To enjoy a journey of Self-Discovery in a like-minded community?
Life is infinitely easier when you can learn to let things go. But this is not always so easy to do. At this retreat we will delve into strategies to help you do just that. Let It Go & Let It Flow.
Strategy #1 - You guessed it - Meditate! It doesn't matter if you are brand new to meditation or have a regular practice. We'll work with you according to your needs.
Strategy #2 - Discover the strength in being vulnerable.
Strategy #3 - Forgiveness - how do we do that?
Strategy #4 - Own Your Story!
Strategy #5 - Manifest the life that you want.
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?
Feeling comfortable and being able to make yourself at home, is a key element of the weekend that our participants love.
We'll be spending our days and evenings in Glenda’s beautiful home in Bobcaygeon. Everyone feels free to plug in the kettle, grab a snack, snuggle into a comfy chair with a blanket, cuddle with Stewey the Zen Poodle or a kitty, and simply be comfortable in the space.
Glenda’s husband Bill is our chef extraordinaire (he also works at a local restaurant), who kindly makes himself scarce when not doing kitchen duty or helping with our art creations – he also cleans up after us!

Thoughts on the activities and overall experience.
Imagine if we could spend our life helping, healing or serving others doing exactly the thing we love to do. Your challenge is not to figure out every other person’s purpose – simply to understand your own. davidji
We are two like-minded souls who met in late 2014 while training to become Certified davidji Masters of Wisdom & Meditation Teachers. First bonding through our class Facebook group, that bond became solid as we traveled together from Toronto to Carlsbad California for our in-residence week of training.
When the women in our first Desire Map workshop told us we made a powerful team and needed to continue “doing what we do" together - we listened. Their comments simply confirmed what we'd discovered – we loved working together and our separate strengths and talents complemented each other perfectly. Thus, Moonset Wisdom Retreats was created to become an integral part of our separate businesses – InnerOm Wisdom and Moonset Meditation.
I'm passionate about the transformation that meditation and 'digging in' can bring to people. These actions have both had a significant impact on my life and if I can help others though what I've learned, then my journey has been worthwhile.
Meditation is what saved my sanity when I went through very stressful times in a recession-hit business. It had a tremendous impact on my healing in the following years and lead me on the path to studying with davidji and becoming a teacher.
If I had taken the time time for self-care and to know and acknowledge what I really wanted for my life, I would have made decisions very differently during those times. I ignored how I felt – because that’s what you're supposed to do. Right? Wrong! As you embrace your own personal wellness and transformation it will be my honour to help guide you along your path.
BA, Certified davidji Masters of Wisdom & Meditation Teacher - Advanced Certification, Reiki Master
Nothing has affected me more profoundly than the experiences of becoming a meditation teacher. My journey with healing work began in 1992 with the unique opportunity to study Shiatsu in Japan as an apprentice. Today, I AM deeply committed to the role that meditation and intuitive healing work can play in bringing us on our path towards wholeness.
As an R.M.T. and R.Ac. (Registered Massage Therapist and Acupuncturist), I have been fortunate enough to witness the deep link between the mind, emotions, body and spirit, and have come to know the importance of balancing all of these aspects within our being. This knowledge combined with intuitive personal insight allows me to help bring healing and guidance to others. Creating and holding a space within which others can heal is a large part of my purpose in this life.

"I am most comfortable when I can truly connect with my heart. I often deny my feelings to focus on what I think is logical, but I am able to be most genuine when I let go of control and follow my feelings.”
“I need to think about all facets of my life. To give myself self-love is the greatest gift to me and the world.”
"I think the realization that everyone is on their own journey and each path is different, yet similar in many ways was a good takeaway."
“Too many to list but if I had to pick one it was my three desires ... The steps that brought me to these three words was a mini-journey. I am so happy with where this weekend took my heart and soul!!”
"I think the greatest thing I am grateful for is this feeling that I have something tangible, a tool akin to a compass to navigate a more authentic life path. I am also grateful too, that I know that I am not alone on this journey, that I have a front row supporting and loving me along the way."
"I know I was ready and you were both there at the right time but you helped me to take the right steps at the right time and it all worked out just beautifully. I feel so free inside and out."

"This was my first 'just for me' retreat and I couldn't have picked a more grounded, loving group of like-minded sisters to share it with."

DISCOVER YOUR BLISS
"For years Glenda has been telling me about the benefits of meditation. My response was always, "Oh yeah. That's good." In all honesty I never had even an inkling of interest in meditating. Fast forward to April 2016 - I attended a retreat that was offered by Glenda and Sarah. Meditating every day was part of the retreat. Wow! Life changing. I now meditate on a daily basis. Internal calmness and putting everything into perspective is my new norm. I can now go with the flow of life. Internal and external chaos is minimized. Thank you Glenda and Sarah."

"Thank you again for believing in me and allowing me to be vulnerable and not judged. Your retreat was just what I needed to get back to being ME. I learn’t a lot about myself and where I need to be in my life. This was a fabulous weekend filled with love, honesty, laughs and great company. You ladies are truly amazing at what you do. Love you both, so glad to have you in my life."
