Align with the Elements and Recharge Your Health & Life!

Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times: Aligning with Nature
to Expand Space, Time & Energy

July 19-22, 2019 *

The elements are the fundamental building blocks of the Universe. They are teachers and healers. At this retreat we will discover how to hear their messages and use their medicine (or power) to balance and rejuvenate our bodies,  minds, spirits — and our lives.

Immerse yourself in a special three-day retreat surrounded by the exquisite nature of Maine. Enjoy the beauty of Bald Mountain and the energy of Rangeley, Maine while savoring the luxury accommodations at Indian Point.

You will discover:

  • How to align with the elements to reduce stress and re-energize
  • The power and wisdom of nature
  • Your personal prescription to re-balance
  • The gifts that Nature is waiting to give you

Hi, I’m Kristi Stangeland, founder of My ParaVita, a company that helps busy women find balance, wellness and a sense of achievement in all they do. As your retreat host, I am blessed to meet wonderful women teachers like Anita.

Dr. Anita Shack, DC, BFA, is a Toronto-based chiropractor who uses Chiropractic, Acupuncture, and Craniosacral Therapy to facilitate change and wellness in her patients. She sees clients in her private practice and at the Al and Malka Green Artists’ Health Centre at Toronto Western Hospital. She is a published researcher and an international speaker and teacher. She explores holistic context in her work and her workshops are designed to increase personal awareness leading to improved health on multiple levels.

Dr. Shack draws on her expertise as a health care practitioner for over 30 years, her varied life experiences and her more than 25-year study of earth-based and spiritual healing paradigms. She creatively weaves knowledge from these ancient traditions into experiential workshops. She is an insightful and caring teacher, creating safe and supportive environments to facilitate learning, change and healing.

“Anita’s workshop was transformational! I was able to connect deeply to my inner being. I felt profoundly taken care of on all levels. Anita’s teachings offered me a different way to understand my life. She is true spirit and grace. She offered ceremony and ritual with deep integrity and openness. Anita is one of the finest facilitators I have experienced in a long time.”

How do I get to Rangeley?
Transfers are available from Portland, Boston and Montreal or enjoy a scenic drive to Rangeley, traveling a route that scales the Appalachian Mountains ridgeline before dropping into rolling valleys and hills. Just be sure to keep an eye out for moose that frequent the region’s roadsides to feed on tender grasses, leaves and branches!

We are only 4.5 hours by car from Boston or Montreal. Portland, Maine is two hours away.

I have special food requirements.

No worries! There are many gluten-free options for breakfast. Lunch and dinner can be modified for vegetarians & vegans.

I'm so busy!
