Soul Connect Retreat | August 31-September 3
Join teacher, writer, and creative empowerment mentor Meghan Sylvester in breathtaking Northern Michigan for a weekend of connection, creativity and lake magic. Located in the historic Red Pine Point in Indian River, where the water is as pure as the air and the night sky is protected so the stars can reign, the Soul Connect Retreat is a sacred space for coming back to your center.
Come Exactly as You Are
Take in the beauty of nature as you forget the weight of the everyday while floating in a crystal clear lake. Watch the sunset over the trees while singing around an open fire. Allow your spirit to be nurtured through kundalini yoga, massage treatments and gourmet farm-to-table cuisine. Unlock the healing power of self-expression through Gateless creative writing sessions and painting--no experience necessary.
Guests will stay in the historic Red Pine Point estate, surrounded by pristine water and fragrant woods. With sprawling grounds and luxurious accommodations, you will have the space to drink your coffee hot and refill your cup.
This retreat is designed to provide support as you connect with your creative energy— the source power of the divine feminine. Maybe you feel called for more spiritual connection. Maybe you feel the urge to be more creative. Maybe your heart is longing for music. Maybe you simply long for the stillness only nature can provide. The Soul Connect Retreat is here to answer that call.
If you feel called to join, whether through a whisper or a shout, you will be received with open arms and met with a truly unforgettable experience. Space is limited, so register early!

You've Got Questions, We've Got Answers!
1) How the heck do I get to Indian River?!
Great question. It's about a 6-hour drive from Chicago and a 3-hour drive from Detroit. For those coming from outside of Illinois/Indiana/Michigan, there is also a regional airport called Pellston that is a great option and only about 20 minutes from the house. Driving or flying works or a combination. Let us know what you're thinking and we will try to group travelers together as needed!
2) What time do I need to arrive on Thursday?
You can check in as early as 4:00. Please plan to arrive no later than 6:00 pm on Thursday, August 31. Let us know if you need any flexibility here!
3) Do I need to be good at yoga to come on this retreat?
Nope! This retreat is for all levels, including beginners. That goes for meditation too! If you are feeling the call, please come. YOU ARE WELCOME AS YOU ARE!
4) What do I wear?
We will send you a suggested packing list, but think lakehouse weekend with bathing suits, yoga pants, your favorite sweatshirt, and the outfit you’ve been dying to try but didn’t have the guts. Anything goes.
5) I’ve never been on a retreat, is that ok?
Absolutely! Retreat containers are truly sacred spaces so get ready to be blown away by how fast you find camaraderie among those who attend. It’s truly magical.
6) I want to come, but I’m feeling nervous to come by myself. Any pointers?
The retreat atmosphere is nurturing and accepting. Whether you know other attendees or no one at all, we will create a space that feels like home. And if you are looking for a travel buddy, let us know and we will make sure you don’t have to show up solo. We want you to feel the warmth of the group before you even arrive.
7) Will there be alcohol?
This is an alcohol-free experience
8) Is it just for women?
9) Can I do a payment plan?
Absolutely. If you feel called to attend and a payment plan would be helpful or if you have any other financial limitations, *please* don’t hesitate to let us know. We want you there and will make it work.
10) What is Gateless Writing? I’m not a writer, don’t have a creative bone in my body. Is this really for me?
When you reflect on what an amazing time you had on this retreat, Gateless is going to be at the top of your list. It’s less about the writing than it is about the connection to your inner voice. Our promise is that you will feel very supported throughout each of the Gateless sessions.
11) Am I gonna have the best time ever?
That is absolutely the plan. Brace yourself!
12) Should I feel guilty about leaving my family on Labor Day Weekend?
Nope. And you might not even miss them. And also if this weekend doesn’t work for you, we get it and understand that you need to do what is best for YOU.
