What people are saying about Retreats
led by Jen Deraspe

  • Nurture through Nature is a true hidden gem in Denmark, Maine. I had a life transforming experience while there for a retreat. I highly, without hesitation, recommend going. I am already looking forward to my next visit and I just returned from there! Amazing experience! Thank you to Jen and Mer!–Anonymous, Portland, Maine

  • Everything on the retreat was great! Beautiful spaces, meaningful programming, the guided meditation walks, Byron Katie discussions, the yoga, the sauna, the mountain brook, the music, the harmonium, the food~all opportunities were well paced and worked well together. I will recommend to others and hope to return. –Rachel Poissant, Biddeford, Maine

  • This retreat exceeded my expectations. The pace was great, I loved trying knew things, loved my time in the sauna and in the yurt. The food was excellent, the circle time was relaxing and the yoga enjoyable. –Deanne Garland, Scarborough, Maine

  • The retreat was energizing, relaxation and thought-provoking. The yoga was beautiful. I learned about myself and have skills to take good care of myself. Thank you for being part of my amazing journey to loving myself.–Lisa, Scarborough, Maine

  • I have enjoyed this chance to breathe and let go! Great food, yoga, nature time and small sharing sessions.–Rasmus, Denmark (the real one!)

  • Amazing experience at the fall retreat!! Thank you Jen for everything!!–Bridgid Murnane, Portland, Maine

  • The meals were phenomenal. What worked for me on my retreat was the food, the schedule/timing, the sauna, a variety of yoga and the bunk accommodations. –Nicole, Gorham, Maine

  • The space is amazing. It feels so clean, spacious, luxurious, natural and right. Excellent food and supportive teachings.

  • Everything worked for me! The structure of the day with retreat activities, free time, meal times, gave a continuous flow of good energy through the day. So what do I mean by good energy: Continuity, Peacefulness & Mindfulness, the mindfulness,being captured by the Noble Silence. I gained "Strength", through the outer strength I began to feel from the Yoga lent to a deeper inner strength. Through the risk of sharing ourselves with women we did not know, I felt a "connectivity" with our human experience. I truly felt "refreshed" in every way, through the physical aspect; meditations, sharing, and the beautiful environment, and the meals!! Much Love & Gratitude to you as your special spirit has enriched us all! –Kathleen Stevens, Maine

  • I am still feeling great peace and ease lingering from the retreat weekend. The schedule was a good balance of free time and group time. Yurt was comfy and just right. LOVE noble silence time. Quiet alone time was respected and I felt no pressure to make small talk if I did not want to. Amazing food! Great music always in the background in the lodge. Thank you so much again for creating this space for retreat, reflection, nature, good health. I'm already thinking of who I know that might need some time there!–Emily Burns, New Hampshire

  • Everything worked for me. The location, the amenities, the people, your message & vibe, the yoga & meditating, the amount of time we spent together, the amount of alone time I had. I gained a true knowledge of the value and importance of being quiet. I knew this but to experience it was amazing. Noble Silence was a gift! And having you walk us through breathing was huge. I think I didn't know how to breathe properly my whole life. Or if I did I forgot and that made a huge difference in me being able to focus and concentrate and relax. Thanks so much Jen. I think your're especially wonderful!! –Karen Wilson, Maine

  • Dear Jen, I am very excited. I feel Re-energized and Re-Newed from our weekend together. The space is amazing. Thank you. You are very good at what you do…Genuine, Authentic, Passionate, Intelligent, Well Spoken, Beautiful…. –Anne Poirier, New Hampshire

  • A gentleman I work with said to me, "Hey, look at you...you're back, looking healthy as ever and look at that bounce you have back in your step!" Mission accomplished! I am so grateful he noticed because that is what I have really missed. It's back! My heart, mind and spirit are so much lighter since joining your retreat. It has been great for my soul. I knew I needed it and I am so glad I did it. I have really found myself again. Thank you Jen! –Robin Matthews, Connecticut

  • I loved how with each minute, I settled in to living ‘off the grid’. Loved being in nature, building a fire in our cabin, being fed delicious and healthy food by Mer who is so funny, irreverent, talented and ohh so kind, yoga, walks, time together with the group, the early hike in noble silence, and of course, your calm and healing leadership. –Wendy Price,Massachusetts
