June 1-3, 2018

In a private retreat centre, connect, build a new community, and nurture your mind, body and soul, during a 3-day Women-Only retreat in Field, BC.

Roots Retreat June Theme: Rest. Release. Renew. 

I created these retreats when I needed to recover from life - you know, life! I was dealing with loss, grief, change, and living life in recovery free from my past addictions. As a couple friends from the west coast say, 'we are all recovering from something'. 

Through the 10 retreats I ran last year, I found retreat and healing in the forest around Field and at Emerald Lake.  I would love for you to join me to experience it for yourself. People have joined me who are recovering from addictions, recovering from diseases or cancers, recovering from change/loss, recovering from a tough year, recovering from divorce or separation, recovering from grief, and more.

We will share experiences, strengths, and hopes, joys and challenges as we workshop through whatever you're ready to surrender. And we will grow together as a community.  We will nourish our bodies and souls with slow cooked plant-based meals eaten together. We will exercise our spiritual fitness in yoga classes with Sabrina of Surrender Yoga. 

You will leave with not only a new journal filled with healthy transformations, goals, desires, and ways to serve, but also a deeper understanding of who you are. 


This retreat is $600 and is all inclusive. Your accommodation, meals, beverages, snacks, workshops, and yoga classes are included. All of our retreats are drug and alcohol free. The town of Field has some small businesses (pottery, jewelry, souvenir, coffee) you can support if you want to bring some extra monies. 


This retreat is facilitated by me, Jill Drader – I am a retreat and recovery advocate, a speaker, a workshop creator and facilitator, an addiction counselor, and an entrepreneur. 

I also customize private 1:1 workshops/retreats, and nature based leadership retreats for teams and corporations. References available upon request. 

Questions? Email me or use the contact form below. 




A retreat centre? Is it nice?

Yes. It's a family owned and operated luxury hostel. Each room has co-sleeping bunks and the beds are made with cozy animal free duvets, soft sheets and cozy pillows. Each room has a mountain view.


What do I bring?

Cozy clothes (lounge/yoga/hike), a wind/rain jacket, shoes or boots you can walk in, a toque and gloves, an open heart, a yoga mat if you have one, a blanket to stay cozy during workshops, and desire to be better when you leave than when you arrived.


Do I need to bring my own food?

No, we are having the retreat catered. The meals will be plant based and we will try to source as much local food as possible. If you want your own snacks, you are welcome to bring them. We will have water, coffee and teas to drink. If you have allergies we will work with you and get you your own meals. 


How do I get there?

You can drive yourself or ask to arrange a carpool. 


Are payment plans available?

Yes, of course! You can arrange with Jill how you're able to pay. 


You can pay by e-transfer, or by Credit Card. 


What if I have other questions? What if I don’t know if this is right for me?

Email Jill at and set up a call to discuss.
