Writing from our Roots

Sat. April 16, 2016. 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Many of us feel the presence of writing within but we can’t seem to find out way to it. Perhaps we long to write about a pivotal experience but it may seem inaccessible to us, or we may sense some writing in the depths but not know what it is or how to bring it to light. This retreat will offer an opportunity to relax down to our deep creative roots and unearth the buried feelings, images, and memories waiting to reach the page. We’ll start with meditative practices to settle into a receptive place, then open to a flow of writing. More directed writing practices will follow, as well as periods of listening to hear what rings true and what needs clarifying. Our circle of women will offer a safe and supportive container for deep and true writing aided by the potent energies of spring in a beautiful environment.

Date: Saturday, April 16, 10 a.m.-5p.m.

Cost: $99 with registration and payment by April 6; $109 after April 6 (includes a vegetarian lunch)

Place: Ramspring Wellness, 443 Upper Ganges Rd., Salt Spring Island

Amrit Dhara Ayurveda
has golden ghee simmering for 


images-4You can do your cleanse at home or you can come for a personal retreat for all or some of it in our intimate guest house.

Either way, cleansing is the best way to remove the excess heat of summer, re-moisturize internally and externally and reboot the immune system in preparation for winter.

We feel great joy to offer you the most satisfying wellness journey we can dream up, whether you can get away on retreat with us or not.

We offer cleansing instructions, kits and treatments and a guest house to support your wellness, based in the ancient time tested wisdom of ayurveda, enhanced by the natural beauty of Salt Spring Island and the magical embrace of Ram Spring where people have come to rest, heal, enliven and transform for 25 years.

The Amrit Dhara Ayurveda Deep Cleanse is 15 days long and undertaken in the comfort of your own home or in our guest house. The cleanse is supported by step by step instructions all laid out in a clear guide book. Its starts with your customized Cleanse Kit, put together from information gathered in your one hour personal intake consultation. You’ll be on a modified diet (no wheat, dairy, soy, alcohol, sugar, oil and maybe a few  other aggressors),  take seven 25.-khichadicustomized organic herbal formulas that target all the systems of the body, exfoliate with a soft natural bristle brush, take organic oil  internally and externally, eat 5 days of organic khichadi ( a yummy curry soup), use a neti pot and a tongue scraper, and maybe an enema kit and did I say that everything is organic?

~ And whether you use it or not, you have email and phone support throughout the entire cleanse.

You also want to consider treating yourself to a morning or afternoon session in the Spa, to take your cleanse even deeper.
8-.-Pancha-Karma-foot-1“The signature treatment” has its roots in this cleanse, and is designed for deepening the affects of all your hard work. Not to mention, its also fully customized and most luxurious and  treats you like the royalty that you are. Get the details here.

Time slots are limited during the group cleanse, so book early to ensure availability.

We offer a Group Cleanse for those who don’t like to go it alone. This seasons will start just after Thanksgiving, to give everyone a chance to enjoy the full harvest.
Fall group cleanse dates – October 14 through 28

Enjoy free daily emails filled with inspirational quotes from spiritual masters of the world, journaling prompts, cleanse tips and reminders.

If the interest is there, we will gladly start a fb forum for cleansers to inspire each other with recipes, insights, hardships, successes, jokes, whatever speaks to you to share with your mates on the road to wellness.

detoxify, reboot, rebuild
your wellness is
in your hands.
