Directed Retreats for Women



"...great energy flowed from solitude,
and great power from communion"


-Poet Denise Levertov 


At Heart By Nature we provide three quality experiences, not often found at larger women's retreats…time for Solitude, discoveries as we explore Creation and the intimacy that forms within a small Community of women

Our programming is geared towards transitioning you from a busy mindset to a calm presence and stillness. You will leave Prairie Pond Woods having learned something new (and cool!) about nature, having spent meaningful time in reflection and having had the opportunity to listen to the voice of God - connected and undistracted.  Our time of sharing together is one of the best experiences of any retreat.  Come rest, listen and find your heart in nature.
