About this trip

We have all been experiencing great transformation alongside a terribly stressful year. No matter who you are we have all struggled and celebrated over the course of 2020. We want to welcome you into a space where you can expand, relax, feel what you feel and use that information to enrich your life. Come let us take care of you so you can take of YOU later. 


Anna and Amber want you to come to this to retreat as you are and feel taken care of while connecting deeply to yourself.  What is it that you need to nurture right now? to deeply nourish? 

Morning yoga classes will lovingly connect you in knowing yourself better. Intentional and vibrational food will nourish you deeply. In the quiet of Nature find clarity. In the community of a small group of like minded people find connection, support and laughter.  Experience your own energy body through breathing, meditation and reiki. This retreat is nourishing in the truest sense of the word. If you are sensing even an ounce of your need to do this that is your answer. You need it. 


Gift yourself a week of real nourishment. Come relax in a serene setting in the middle of one of the most beautiful places in the midwest. The Sleeping Bear Dunes, Leland Peninsula and Traverse city are among Michigans most beautiful destinations and full of amazing nature.

Remember what is important to your heart. 


We look forward to this truly special experience together. 


with love, Amber and Anna


Description of Birdsong Lodge <3

Birdsong lodge offers a quiet setting with unbelievable sunsets. The lodge offers a huge living room featuring high ceilings and natural tile floors. Impressive stone wood fireplace and spectacular Lake Michigan views are a special treat. A huge art collection adorns the massive walls. A cozy family room off of the living room that offers TV viewing. Cable TV and Wifi provided. Large tiled dining room with a large dinner table. 

Outdoors is the place you will want to be. Watching the waves lap on the shore, spectacular sunsets, and a huge yard for lounging and yoga. Lots of outdoor seating on the spacious decks. Petosky stones often find themselves on this lake too. A rock collectors bonus!

This is located about 5 minutes from the village of Leland. Known for "Fishtown," this community is rich in history and a must-see attraction. Plenty of shops and dining. The marina on Lake Michigan is beautiful. Houdek Dunes is a few miles out of town on the way to Northport for hiking and enjoying nature. Easy drives to the Leelanau State Park to the north or Sleeping Bear Dunes to the south. Glen Arbor is 15 minutes south of this location. Suttons Bay is 10 minutes east. The hiking options are endless.
