Reigniting the Magic of Childhood Summers

August 11-16, 2023

It’s with so much excitement that I announce the inaugural Sacred Summer Camp Retreat, summer camp for grown ups,

on my beloved Whidbey Island!

Re-wild your inner child and experience the wonder and awe of deep connection and joyousness.

It has been a long time dream of mine to share my love of this beautiful land that raised me with my people (yes you), and that day has finally arrived!

I grew up on this stunning, rural island in the Puget Sound, running wild in the woods and fields and riding my trusty steed Dusty (best horse ever!) on the beach and swimming with him in the sea.

I can close my eyes and go back in time, as clearly as if it were yesterday, to those long summer days, the smell of the sea and grass, the feel of the warm sun on my face, and the cool earth on my feet.

There's something so magical about the freedom of childhood summer time, the awe and wonder it evoked, savoring long, sunny days that seemed to last forever, sleeping on the grass under the stary sky. Pure heaven!

I want to share that experience with you!

Do you remember when you were a kid the magic that summer held, the freedom to play outside all day without a care in the world?

This summer we're going to make that magic again grown up style.

Five fun filled days! 

Join me and my co-hosts Shelly Tallarino and Jennifer Herrera for five fun filled days: August 11th-16th, 2023


Sacred Summer Camp will take place on Maxwelton Beach, Whidbey Island. 


We will enjoy daily yoga followed by reiki infused crystal bowl sound baths and tea ceremony mediation. There will be fun filled group activities, including beach walks, a hike, a variety of arts & crafts including playing with clay, an afternoon exploring the quaint town of Langley, and for those interested, paddle boarding in the beautiful Salish Sea (no waves:-), evenings under the stars around the fire pit + s’more making, plus plenty of free time to laze around in the sun, explore our beautiful land, or whatever strikes your fancy.


All activities will take place at Vida Sagrada Guesthouse and sleeping accommodations are a hop & skip through the field at the Maxwelton Farm House.

In order to secure the venue Art of Sacred Living is required to enter into binding contracts with 3rd parties that do not allow for refund or cancellation in any instance except for limited instances where “acts of god” render the entire event impossible. For example, if due to the COVID-19 pandemic worsening, the Farm House must close down, then we would be able to get a refund and refund all ticket holders. Otherwise, unfortunately, we must enforce a strict cancellation policy and there will be no refunds in any instance. You may transfer your ticket under certain conditions. Also, purchasing trip insurance to protect yourself is always a good idea. You can find insurance options here.
