Northern Intentions: A New Year’s Eve Retreat in Algonquin

Embrace the Magic of Winter & Retreat Inward to Warm the Soul

during this 4 day-3 night escape to Algonquin’s Northern Edge

 Join Joshua Lewis and Trevor Corkum for a special four-day retreat at Northern Edge Alqonguin, a luxurious all-seasons retreat centre in Algonquin Park. The retreat will feature gentle yoga, meditation, reflective writing, and the chance to indulge in the best winter has to offer.
