  • Miss the peace and clarity that being in nature brings.
  • Would like permission and space to reconnect with the real you.
  • Want some practical tools to keep your vision clear once you go back into the real world.
  • Are tired of your hamster-wheel but can’t figure how to get off.
  • Can’t seem switch off and are maybe even a bit scared to try.
  • Need some time away to remember who you are and where you’re going.

The perfect balance of time to yourself and intention-based coaching to help you dive deep, hear your truth, and come away feeling grounded, refreshed, and restored.

What to expect:

I will be waiting to welcome you with a big hug on Friday afternoon after 4pm. You’ll have time to settle in, explore the beach and property before meeting everyone before our first night supper and welcome ceremony. Then we will gather on the beach to cast off what’s weighing us down and we’ll burn up our energetic roadblocks in a cleansing fire ritual! S’mores optional.

Saturday: Begin your day with some restorative yoga followed by a mind/body workshop. We will take some time to reflect and connect afterwards. Then we’re off on a gorgeous hike and picnic lunch in the afternoon followed by more time for relaxation and exploration; naps are encouraged. After dinner we will gather to do some illuminating Hidden Wisdom Collage workshopping in the main house. Leave your linear mind under your bed!

Sunday: Take part in a relaxing Yin Yoga class followed by our closing ceremony. Then we’ll say our goodbyes and head home refreshed, restored, and reconnected.

Oh my Good Gravy, I am so excited you guys!

Your Host:

My name is Jude Temple and in addition to being a registered nurse I am also a Certified Martha Beck Life Coach. I am so excited to have you join me this weekend. The natural beauty of the Pacific West Coast wilderness is a passion of mine and I am over-joyed to get to share it with you. There is something truly healing and magical about the land and water of coastal British Columbia and it is that magic that I can’t wait for you to experience.

Here’s what some of my clients have to say about me:

My coaching sessions with Jude provided clarity, direction and valuable insight on my life path. Working with Jude uncovered my truth, offered new perspectives on my priorities, and always seemed to take me where I needed to go! After every coaching session with Jude, I was clear on the immediate and long-term steps needed to achieve both personal and career goals. I deeply appreciated Jude’s sharp intelligence and thoughtful approach in our time together.

When I first saw Jude, I wasn’t really sure I needed a life coach, or if it would help me. As our sessions progressed, I started to have these “ah-ha or light bulb” moments go through my brain as we discussed ways to tackle things. The best thing about Jude and her life-coaching technique is that you are going along for the ride and before you know it, you are at your destination! She has a way of getting you there painlessly and seamlessly. I crossed the finish line and it was all with Jude guiding me there. Thank you!
