About Retreats

Regularly scheduled retreats offered by Wendy and Darin provide guests with an opportunity to go beyond the mental chatter of the mind and connect with the Stillness – Presence –  that lies within.  A feeling of coming back home. This practice of shifting attention from the mind to the Stillness of the Heart brings depth; connecting us with the sacred dimension of our being, and anchoring life in a place of increased Peace, Joy, Love, and Freedom.

Disconnect from the “busyness” of life and give yourself the gift of a retreat at Shanti. Relax, reflect and restore waterside while enjoying the peace and tranquility of the countryside and our country inn. Find your sacred space.
