As life’s journey unfolds, we encounter situations that alter the way we think. Ever been riding that bicycle with no chain..stuck and getting nowhere?
Eventually if we are no longer connected to our dreams and goals, nor are we following our daily practices so things start to fall apart.
Perhaps it’s our health, and we might experience digestive issues, have poor eating habits, sleep disorders, aches and pains, headaches, and stress.
Being unfocused leads to major creative issues or blocks, and being emotionally out of balance. Whatever the problem is there is discontentment and disconnect.
My goal is to help people feel good again, grounded and clear and be able to function at their highest level.
During the program you will be offered many different and wonderful opportunities to heal, reconnect, rejuvenate and rebalance.
With wonderful and nourishing food and through yoga, meditation, communing with nature, sound healing and ceremony, you will have the chance to rewrite your own story.
It will be an amazing weekend with special guests including
The wonderful and dynamic,
Marion Jackson, Yoga Teacher , NYC
And the beautiful Susan Jamieson of Great Barrington Ma. will offer Yoga/dance
More to come, yet to announce our Sound Healing Facilitator
Looking Forward to a Divine Journey,
Program Coming Soon
I know it sounds cliché, but four days with Jill at the Menla retreat was truly transformational.
Rather than inundating me with educational materials, technical handouts and boring lectures about so-called healthy eating, Jill fostered a caring, supportive and spiritual experience which facilitated my ability to look inside to find my own answers and solutions.
The yoga, sound bath and sweat lodge were great, and the food was delicious.
Jill put together a thoughtful program which had just the right balance of guided activities and free time for reflection and thought.
I cannot wait to participate in her next one.

Wonderful retreat, Jill! I loved all of the offerings. The teachers were all fantastic. The food was great. My digestion was the best of my adult life. I even lost a few pounds.
Shirley Golgoski They say when the student is ready the teacher appears ~ I had the honor to meet Jill 1 yr ago. I was not aware of Jill's path yet. When I heard of the Nourishing the Divine Self Retreat I decided to go. I was Truly blown away by Jill's Compassionate, Healing, Nourishing Capability. I have been struggling w/life for some years, this retreat w/ Jill opened up many doors. A true gift I gave myself. Jill brought in all the right people & the knowledge of the right food helped many HEAL in the room. She has been following thru and checking in well after the retreat I have been gifted in many ways from this Divine Retreat. My wish is that everyone could experience Jill's gift once. The Sweat Lodge was the Best! ~ Thank you Jill I will forever be in Sister Sprite w/u.
