Elohee – retreat. renew. remember.
Elohee is a retreat center located in the heart of 200 wooded acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia. Currently, we rent our facilities to teachers offering courses in meditation, yoga, art, dance, and other methods for personal growth. We are also in the process of creating our own curriculum which will draw directly upon the power of nature to facilitate our Forest Therapy, Cancer Support, Trauma Recovery, and Mindful Leadership Programs. Elohee is a place for transformation - individual and community.See more events in this venue
Wherever we find ourselves on the journey towards physical health, emotional wellbeing and spiritual awareness, engagement with nature supports and facilitates further healing and awakening. True Nature Meditation offers practices and experiences which support and deepen engagement with nature. Nature itself becomes our teacher and guide, meeting us wherever we are: supporting our healing, transforming us energetically, and moving us towards an awareness of our own true nature.
This weekend retreat is appropriate for all who want to deepen their engagement with nature, doing so from a meditative perspective. No prior experience with meditation or with deep nature engagement is necessary. In addition to nature-based practices and exercises, there will be plenty of opportunity to share experiences and reflect on the process. There will also be extended periods of silence, allowing us to deepen our awareness and drop more fully into our own experience.
Elohee is located in Sautee–Nacoochee (15 minutes from Helen & Unicoi State Park; 90 minutes from Atlanta). Nestled in the midst of 200 acres of undeveloped land in the beautiful foothills of the Appalachian mountains, the Retreat House is built overlooking a 100’ waterfall. The land has over two miles of walking trails, expansive vistas, a mountaintop swimming pond and hot tub. The land itself is both nurturing and transformative.
We’ll begin with dinner at 6p on Friday and end after lunch at 1:30p on Sunday. The weekend will include vegetarian with lean meat options, and mostly-organic meals. The food is always healthy and delicious at Elohee, and we’re happy to do whatever possible to accommodate special diet needs.
Our intention is to create an environment that supports the deepening of nature connection, that encourages an awakening to our own true nature, and that enhances clarity regarding our own path.
Room and Board price includes two nights accommodations (including tax), access to over 2 miles of hiking trails, a natural reflection pond and 6 wholesome meals, 2 snacks, and coffee and tea service.
