About this trip

Rooted Retreats are for those wanting to step into their inner peace, love and commitment to the true self through the practice of yoga and adventures by balancing the mind, heart and soul. From self ventures to community ventures, you will discover an open awareness with inner and outer comfort body experiences, coming hOMe to your senses, and deep rooted connections throughout your retreat experience.  A transformation takes place once you commit to your self and follow your heart, without any distractions (in nature), feeling rooted down deep into SOURCE. Awaken the spirit inside, the adventurous sense, so that the unconscious mind, the universal soul, can guide you closer to YOU. 

Dare to dig deep?

This first ever-Zen River ~ Deep Rooted Retreat is located in the Olympic Peninsula-PNW where you can dig and root down deep into yourself, in a magical forest, with yoga and adventures every day. This is a 5-night/6-day retreat where you can awaken your senses in a zen atmosphere, with like-minded women; this is a women-only retreat for a specific reason-to feel safe in your own space, in your own body-close to mother nature.  

This is an all-inclusive retreat with everything included in the pricing, except for transportation and any add-ons. Audrey Abshire is the facilitator of the retreat, with over 2 years of experience hosting retreats internationally, she is now bringing her ventures with Deep Rooted Retreats to the Olympic Peninsula, where she has rooted herself over the past few years (and has come to know since visiting as a child and throughout her adult-life).

Hiking With Nina Sarmiento at Magic Forest Tours

Join local guide Nina Sarmiento and founder of Magic Forest Tours for two days of outdoor exploration and nature bathing. On day one a visit to the waterfall will introduce you to the ecosystem unique to the Olympic Peninsula. On day two dig a little deeper with a hike along the picturesque Quilcene river. Nina will provide information on the local area, national park, and how to leave no trace when enjoying the outdoors. 

Hike 1: Hike number one is to Rocky Brook Falls, an easy walk of about 200 feet and one of the best waterfalls on the Olympic Peninsula. The waterfall is 100 feet tall, continuously fed by glacier melt. If you like cold water, bring your bathing suit for a dip below the falls. 

-->Easy difficulty, 10 mins, out & back, .3 miles.

Hike 2: Hike number two is 4.6 miles into the mossy Quilcene valley to arrive at our lunch spot next to the river. We’ll be among towering old growth trees and be able to explore a few side trails if time allows. This hike is an easy out and back where we will stop throughout to identify native plants and sample ripe huckleberries.

-->Hard difficulty, 4-5 hours, out & back, 4.6 miles.

What to Wear and what to bring: On these hikes wear a non-cotton shirt, non-cotton shorts/pants or leggings, and hiking shoes (sneakers are ok). Pack a small backpack with sunscreen, water and snacks. Consider bringing something with electrolytes to stay hydrated in the heat! If you would like to dip in the water bring a towel and lightweight sandals.

Audrey Abshire
My yoga experience has been a journey of many ups and downs, from finding my true self, inner-wisdom, inner-peace and loving, to practicing, listening and observing what the universal source presents itself as. Mostly filled with many high awakenings to many low sufferings, the death and rebirth cycle, finding a flow of consistency and curiosity, as well as balancing unity and community. Being of service and in connection, has been my biggest purpose of this yogi path I have been on for about 5 years now.
