Summer Retreat with Erin – Creativity and Renewal

June, 2023

Creativity and Renewal:
Summer Retreat with Erin Joosse
Harmony Hill Retreat Center
July 22nd-24th


For more than 15 years, I have been leading retreats to Harmony Hill, a beautiful retreat center on the Hood Canal. In more recent years, I have led them 3 times a year – in October, March, and July – enjoying the beauty throughout different seasons. It has been a real gift to be there through fall, early spring, and the height of summer, seeing the changes that take place in a familiar setting. 

July is of course magical – the gardens in full bloom, the skies clear, the Olympic Mountain range in full, spectacular view. The fresh energy of summer transforms the center, from cozy in the winter months to spacious and vibrant with the warmer days. 

In my upcoming retreat – Creativity and Renewal – I wanted to bring the energy of summer into our practice. As always, mindful movement and meditation practices will be at the forefront, but we will also have space for social connection, downtime for rest and relaxation, and journaling and collaging to explore mindfulness through creative practice.   

Mindful creative practice offers us a space to play, the chance to express ourselves in new ways, and the opportunity to explore creative expression as a doorway into deeper awareness.   

You don’t have to be an artist or a writer to explore yourself as a creative person. All you need is space, permission, and willingness to explore something new. 

Join us! 

  • Be guided through both restoring and enlivening gentle yoga classes, mindfulness meditation, journaling prompts, and optional collaging practices.  
  • Nourish yourself in community.  
  • Feel expanded by resting in the natural beauty of our exquisite Hood Canal and Olympic view.  
  • Take time for morning silence and contemplation through breakfast. 
  • Enjoy being in community or in solitude, as much as you want and need.   

All levels of practitioners of yoga and meditation welcome. No writing or artistic experience required. Find out more.


I hope to see you there!
