Phoenix farm will be offering 3 MMM’s spa retreats this summer 2018.  The first one will consist of a full day of activities which will be scheduled for an invigorating, creative and exploratory experience with the arts, according to your preferences and individual interests for involvement.   You may select as many or as few as you wish.

These workshops will be limited to 6 participants, so register early.  Please detail clearly any environmental or food allergies.


***Pay from the Heart*** Deposit of $50.00  Payable at the time of booking

As a proponent for the wellness and growth of women and children for over 30 years as an elementary teacher, I am committed to making the workshops financially accessible to everyone. The $50.00 deposit allows me to secure the time of the co-facilitators, our dance instructress, Sarah Watts and our local organic Chef.   At the end of the workshop, you will be given the opportunity to make a contribution based on the perceived value of what the workshop/spa was worth to you. This contribution can be a one-time donation or monthly deposits. I trust that you will get in touch with the long term benefit of workshops/retreats to your life and make your decision honestly. Normally a workshop of this nature would be priced from $250 to $300.  As Phoenix Farm is a non-profit organization, 50% of all earnings from the farm products/ workshops are donated to the Women’s Centre of Owen Sound.  Children are our future which is why I dedicated myself to teaching in Canada, U.S., Mexico and Honduras.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY OF SPIRIT.

** Massage therapy (relaxation or therapeutic) sessions will be available, if booked, by May 30, 2018.  Highly experienced, certified masseuse.   This renewing experience can be conducted in the privacy of a Phoenix farm room with ensuite bath or under netting overlooking the pond and forests of the farm (professional table and masseuse).    An extra cost of $50/3o minutes or $85/60 minutes.


Other activities for your rejuvenating  adventure:  hiking through the naturalized hardwood forest, swimming in the spring fed (soft water) pond,  reading, sunbathing on the patio,  Cedar sauna/steam room (which seats 6), visiting with my lovely equine “rescue” companions, Princess Molly (mini-horse), Kung Fu George (mini-donkey), Simple Simon (dressage thoroughbred), Sally the Goldie and Ally, my Torby kitty.    ALLERGY ALERT.


This initial 2018 retreat is organized for women ages 45 – 70 years old.  Watch for other age groups in the future.
