Partnership Retreat

hosted by Higher Self Bookstore & Ways To Wellness  

Can a RETREAT change the direction your life is heading? 

If your relationships, your job, your thoughts “don’t fit” any more…   

If you are seeking an understanding of how partnership dynamics affect your life…  

If you need to improve the ways you spend your time and personal energy… 

If you need a BIG DOSE of nature-based rest and relaxation… 

…then this is the Retreat for you!   

In case you need any additional reasons, this is a unique opportunity to experience the coming together of amazing, community-oriented individuals within the tranquil setting of Sojourn Lakeside Resort; a 35 -acre soothing paradise near Gaylord, Michigan.  Activity options for the weekend include a variety of restorative experiences, independent excursions, and inspiring presenters.​                                     

The overarching theme for this invigorating retreat is PARTNERSHIP. Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of how your unconscious partnership with yourself (mentally and emotionally) affects all your other interactions.  You will discover techniques that will change the dynamics of not only your primary relationships with friends and family, but your secondary relationships as well including professional / work interactions. Our presenters will shed new light on how to approach and understand others as well as how to foster cooperation and creativity with others.  This is the perfect opportunity to relax in nature, make new friendships, and create new personal perspectives.  Now is the time to focus and move forward in fresh, positive ways.
