Guided Individual Spiritual Retreats

Hilary Lake, Nine Mountain’s Spiritual Guide, offers the unique experience of guided personal spiritual retreats. Guided spiritual retreats are often one-to-one, and are a way to support individuals in learning about meditation, developing their sense connection to themselves and the divine and take steps towards personal transformation.

Hilary guides retreatants in many different spiritual practices including yoga, breathing practices, meditation from various Buddhist and yogic traditions, energetic healing from the Infinity Healing School, Body Mind Centering from the Somatic Body work she is studying, improvisational movement and sound healing. She offers spiritual counseling from a contemplative psychotherapeutic perspective, guided vision walks in the woods and nutritional guidance as well as Moving in Grace her own unique integration of many of these modalities. Design your own retreat with her as you discover what will support your personal awakening.

9477_710386682640_719112921280657337_nShe is welcoming you into Nine Mountain to co-create your own spiritual retreat with her. After an initial phone consultation, you are welcome to visit our space. She invites you to share what your spiritual journey has been, what you are wanting and discern a main question or two that you are moving through. Then when you arrive there would be another check in about the process as it has been unfolding in your arrival and she will offer some suggestions of practices and tools to work with as we design a retreat together exploring those practices either together or you’d be welcome to practice alone. It can remain very flexible throughout the time how she would interact and guide each person based on their unique path and needs as the retreat progresses.  There will also be time for checking back in throughout the retreat and a closing integration time at the end helping one to bring the space and jewels that have been gathered back home.
