I have exciting news to tell you ! This July will be the first session of Blue Heron School of Discovery.

What is Blue Heron School of Discovery, you may ask.

Teenagers today face many stressors and challenges. 


So what do they need ? 

They need the space and time to relax, be themselves and discover the uniqueness of who they are.

Blue Heron School of Discovery is the ideal place for them to do this. 

At Blue Heron School of Discovery they will be 'still' and tap in and listen to their inner voice to help guide them. They will learn to be comfortable in and know their own body wisdom. And they will spend time in nature which will help lower their stress.

The  Blue Heron School of Discovery Summer Retreat will empower girls in grades 9-12. They will gain confidence and self-esteem, develop their own 'voice' and speak their truth and discover and embrace their own uniqueness. 

Our inaugural week-long session will be held:

July 23-29, 2018
Gaia Wellness Retreat
La Peche, Quebec
Cost: $1200
Provided: Classes, activities, accommodation, meals, supervision

This week-long session will only be accepting twelve girls and the student to teacher ratio is 2:1. The girls will be with us overnight. In addition to classes throughout the day, activities, accommodation, meals and supervision are provided.

I am now in the process of recruiting the first 12 girls for the inaugural session of the Blue Heron School of Discovery.

For those that may know of students, parents and educators interested in this program, please pass this along to your network.

I am happy to answer any questions that you may have. Please reach out to me by email at
