The Structure of the Retreat
We meet for a three hour workshop in the morning, then break for lunch around 12:30. For more detail, see Our Journey.
- We have three hours free in the afternoons — for alone time, soaking in the hot tub, or exploring the wonders of Acadia National Park as a group or on your own. Our shore front is a two minute walk from the house, and there are several lovely trails accessible from Rising Sun Cottage. Eagles often fly overhead!
- On some days we come back for another session around 3:30in the afternoon. On other days, we have the whole afternoon off.
- In the evenings we close our day together with open readings and other activities.
- Our gourmet meals are cooked by my private chef. We have all our meals at the house, except for one dinner and one lunch, which we eat in Bar Harbor restaurants I love!
"Emily's retreats reconnect me to my creativity and release parts of myself I either need to reclaim or let go. These retreats strengthen my resolve to protect that time I need for my creative outlets and help me create balance in my life." ~ Carolyn Rowland
