This Retreat Is For You If........
  • You feel burnt out or overworked
  • You are so busy that you hardly have time to identify, let alone change, self limiting habits
  • You crave more time in nature to relax and renew your goals and creativity
  • You need some professional guidance to focus on how to make the restorative changes in your life

My family and I relocated to Nelson BC in 2017. I combined my nineteen years of experience as a ND and my connections with mountain guides and the the thriving local food and health community and developed an all-inclusive health retreat that will immerse you in nature while helping you to put together a personalized wellness plan. I chose Mountain Waters for its beauty, tranquility, and nature based setting.  The Retreat Center is located 10 minutes from Nelson BC.  It's the perfect place to come for deep learning and restoration plus the late summer in the Kootenays is glorious, with warm days and early fall colors.

Join me, Dr. Oldfield, for a five day all-inclusive retreat in beautiful Nelson BC. The journey begins as you drive out of Seattle and head towards Nelson on stunning mountain roads.

Is the price in Canadian dollars? What does that convert to in US dollars?

Right now the currency conversion is quite favorable for Americans visiting Canada. You save roughly 25% off the posted price of the retreat. For example, lately $77 US dollars converts to $100 Canadian dollars. 

How will I get to the retreat? 

I suggest driving as the least expensive and low carbon footprint way to get to Nelson and I'll make sure to help attendees coordinate carpooling if needed. If you'd like to fly, the closest major airport is Spokane, a beautiful three hour drive from Nelson. See this link for more information on how to get to Nelson:

Is it a women's only retreat?

This is a retreat for anyone! Attend by yourself or bring a friend or loved one. The group dynamic is always amazing.

What will the weather be like during the retreat?

Late summer in the Kootenays is beautiful with days typically warmer and dryer than Seattle, and nights crisp and cool. The lake is still swimmable. However, it is in the mountains, so pack for cooler evenings and bring appropriate outerwear in case it rains. We had wildfire smoke blanket the region last year for a few weeks but it was gone by early September.

Will I be able to handle all the outdoor excursions? 

Yes.  All the activities are designed to suite all abilites. Though included in the price, the outdoor activites are optional. At any time you can choose to have free time and relax at the retreat centre or explore Nelson.
