Big News: We are holding our first ever wellness retreat and you are invited!
Publish date:

After our recent survey we learned that the type of event most desired by our followers was a wellness retreat. Not ones to contradict a great idea, we put in motion a plan to work with our friend, Elizabeth Kendig of Healers, to create a unique day of transformational work in our hometown of Seattle. 

So, without further adieu, please consider this your formal invitation! 

Join The Fold and Healers for an intimate day of holistic healing and well-being. Connect with your higher self and fellow seekers as we welcome a Full Moon. You'll emerge restored and ready to embrace a new season with clarity and confidence.
