Why Choose Oregon for Your Wellness Retreat?

Oregon, with its breathtaking landscapes, lush forests, and serene coastlines, is the perfect backdrop for a wellness retreat. Whether you’re seeking to deepen your yoga practice, engage in mindful meditation, or simply escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Oregon offers a diverse range of retreats that cater to all your wellness needs.

How do I find the perfect retreat?

To find the perfect retreat, begin imagining, feeling, writing, or visualizing what you want your perfect retreat to be like. I know this can sound like hippy manifesting stuff, but it works because in neuroscience, our brains look for patterns, and once we set the course for the pattern to look for, we arrive at it. So, let’s start!

Leading this retreat is a spiritual guide and teacher, Jess Spain.

About Wellness Retreat in Oregon Guide: Jess is a Portland, Oregon Native, Cow-Creek Umpqua enrolled spiritualist, astrologer, writer & artist. “Esoteric studies as a child, and they have grown to be a part of who I am now. There is no formal education route for these kinds of studies, and I have spent years in self-study, in classes with teachers who have a higher level of knowledge than I do, and I apply these to my own life as a teacher and a student.

Before COVID-19, I was a counselor for several years, during which time I developed my group curriculum focused on mindfulness, DBT skills, and emotional intelligence. I graduated from Portland State University with a B.S. in psychology and a minor in child and family studies. My focus as a counselor was on the Indigenous community in my area. I am a level II Reiki practitioner and a certified yoga (200hr) instructor, and I have been a formal meditation student since 2020 with ongoing training. I also attended the Nightlight Astrology School in 2021 for Hellenistic Astrology.”

This women’s retreat is unique for its wellness atmosphere and for fostering connections based on community healing.

Shamanic Healing Retreat

When: Aug 8-11
Where: Washougal, WA (30 minutes north of Portland)

About: During August, we are hosting a Shamanic Healing retreat. The retreat intends to cultivate a deeper relationship with self and Spirit.

During our retreat weekend, we will use Shamanic Practices and Plant Medicine to facilitate the embodiment of the natural self. We will offer structured activities for navigating inner child wounds, teach participants how to connect to the primal energy within themselves and engage in a bit of play with the nature spirits.

About the Host: Primordial Shamanic Healer Nadia Hrynkiw and Trolldom Practitioner Ida Cavewoman will lead this wellness retreat weekend. Both Nadia and Ida have extensive training and lived experience in Shamanism. Their goal is to share healing, wisdom, and practices with those called to live a more purposeful spiritual life.

Who is this retreat for? People looking to heal their past, find their purpose in life, and connect more deeply spiritually. This retreat, in particular, is open-format, so all are welcome. (Our other retreats are more specific intention based)

What makes us unique? Genuine Shamanic practice is primarily kept from the public due to the historical persecution of those who have practiced it. We aim to openly share the practice and offer people the opportunity to undergo a massive transformation that is otherwise impossible due to the constraints of our minds and what we have been taught to be true.

  • Carolyn Stuart has been a devotee of Contact Improvisation since 1984. Her research and development in the art of improvising in contact has spanned 17 countries, hundreds of projects, and diverse populations. Her primary teachers have been commitment to the process of exploration and the use of the blindfold. Her mission is to make contact improvising accessible by distilling the vastness of possibility into the simplest of terms. The current edge of her investigation is applying the principles of the C.I. paradigm to life at large. If mutual well-being is possible on the dance floor, then what about off the dance floor too- for the generations to come!

About the Author

Lumalia standing near a coastline with her hair blowing in the wind

Hey, I’m Lumalia, the main voice behind Celebrate Again. I call myself a connection architect because I have a deep passion for guiding us all to fall back in love with life through states of beauty, but many of us are far from feeling at home in our own bodies, so we seek to find safety in others. 

Yikes, that’s scary, I know; I did that for three decades, too, until I returned home to myself.

I’m so excited to share with you all I’ve learned and this beautiful journey back home to what makes you absolutely stunning just because you are alive today.
