This is the continuation of the Edenwild Retreat. You must have already completed the first retreat in one of the last two years to attend Edenwilder. 


Transform your mind, body and artsy soul through art! Every morning after breakfast, Elida will guide you through a self-reflection activity as she leads you in creating a beautiful, meaningful piece of art. The afternoons are yours for exploring the island and the Lopez Island way of life. Enjoy hiking, riding bikes, strolling along the rocky beaches, canoeing or your personal idea of relaxing. Join the Edenwild community at dinner for excellent conversation and amazing food. 


The retreat includes:

  • 4 days and 3 nights at the Edenwild Inn on Lopez Island

  • Painting lessons and all painting, collaging, and journaling materials

  • Accommodations (All rooms are single occupancy rooms. Each room has an en suite bathroom)

  • Breakfast and dinner each day (beverages are extra)


Travelers are responsible for ferry fare, lunches, drinks, and all incidentals.


The cost for the retreat is $1,199. WE REQUIRE A $299 DEPOSIT TO RESERVE YOUR SPACE. Final payments are due September 25th. 


Register before and pay your deposit before September 5th and qualify for our EARLYBIRD PRICING!! You pay only $999 for the retreat. 


*This year the retreat will look a little different due to COVID-19, but we are still going to have a great time! Lopez Island has different requirements than the rest of the state and has been up and running for some time now, accommodating guests without incident. They are taking all the required precautions and cleaning measures to ensure a safe place for all guests to stay.
This will be a small retreat with limited spots available, on a first come, first serve basis. We will have the entire inn to ourselves aside from staff members, but we will be in close proximity to our group of retreat attendees during group activities. Last year during the retreat we spent a lot of time outside hiking and catching the sunsets and we plan to do the same this year. We will be having meals together while following protocol and requirements. There will be mask requirements when social distancing is difficult to maintain and/or following the requirements of whatever phase Lopez Island is in during that time.
