Sam Salenger Retreats
FREE CHECKLIST FOR THRIVING IN MIDLIFE
A retreat to honor the divine mother in us all
Friday, May 17 4 p.m.-Sunday, May 19 2 p.m.
The world is overwhelming.
As women, we take on so much. We caretake our partners, kids, careers, homes, friends, and families. Who is usually last on the list? Yourself.
When is the last time you felt deeply nurtured? What was the last thing you did simply for you? Because you wanted to? Because you felt called?
Listen to the call… Deep within your heart… She is longing to be heard, felt and seen. Waiting to exhale and relax. Desiring to be taken care of. Come to this place to find the divine mother that is in you, while you mother your inner child.
Feel your soul mothered with:
incredible, healthy, delicious, satisfying food (GF, SF, mostly DF and vegetarian), a relaxed pace and balance between offerings and free time, gentle and embodied movement, and more loving goodness.
In this magical space called Heaven and Earth Retreats in Banks, OR, you’ll experience rich connection and rejuvenating offerings around mindfulness, nature, movement, creativity, and ritual.
Just 40 minutes from downtown Portland, this unique, intimate space feels MILES away — tucked away on five pristine, forested acres with stunning views.
Return to your family, friends, co-workers, and clients relaxed and enlivened.

*Note: This space is a beautiful home that’s been converted to a retreat center. Therefore, the experience is more intimate than a hotel. There are 2 full bathrooms, a deluxe and tricked-out outdoor bathroom, and an outdoor shower. This is a space that “feels like being at a relative’s house, it’s cozy and clean, and so inviting and welcoming. I feel so taken care of by Ruthanne, her cooking, her nurturing style and the environment she’s designed. She’s thought of everything to make her guests feel completely at ease.”SC
