Immersive Habits Workshop
& Wellness Retreat

Are you ready to reprogram your habits and gain the clarity and control that comes with the power of habits? Join us for the Habit Reset, a wellness retreat designed to help you develop the skills and strategies to form good habits and break the bad ones.

Just imagine . . .

Powerful habits

Surrounded by nature on the edge of Algonquin Park, we’ll work together to reset the way we think about habits and how they affect our lives. Through a combination of workshops, group activities, and one-on-one guidance, you’ll gain the tools needed to form healthy new habits that will stay with you long after the retreat has ended.

Our passionate team will guide you through the process of resetting your habits, from the basics of the habit loop to the development of strong daily routines. With workshops inspired by experts such as B.J. Fogg, Charles Duhigg, James Clear and Marie Kondo, you’ll be immersed in a program filled with practical ways to cultivate healthy habits and unlock personal growth opportunities. We’ll explore why we do what we do, how we can change our behaviour, wellness routines, de-cluttering, digital wellness and more.

Actionable goals
Yoga practice

We invite you to unplug for four days as this off-grid workshop takes you away from day-to-day distractions so you can focus on YOU. Come reset outdoors, in a supportive community at our remote retreat centre. Whether your goals have to do with health & wellness, balance, career, or joy – this is your opportunity to dream big, create patterns, environments, and habits that will help you to achieve those dreams, and be accountable to yourself.

Our goal is simple yet powerful – send you home feeling motivated and empowered with a fresh perspective on life – complete with your own toolkit full of daily practices at the ready! By taking a moment to assess your emotional state and how it relates to current habits, you can start the process of breaking a habit or creating new ones. This will give you the opportunity to take steps towards building new routines that are in line with your core values and life goals as well!

Meals & Dietary Needs

Edge guests are well nourished and experience mealtime itself as a program element, with storytelling to introduce the seasonal flavours of the region and the relationships with the folk who grew and raised the ingredients close to home. Cooking at the Edge focuses on balancing globally far-flung tastes with provincially produced foods. Meals are served buffet style and are guests often enjoy lakeside dining outdoors when the weather allows it.

Over the years we have met many diverse dietary needs. Guests are invited to identify their dietary needs & preferences as a part of the registration process, and those with restrictions love the options we provide.

Itinerary & Program Timings

We offer unique, tailored experiences that flow as our facilitators respond to the interests of our guests, seasonal conditions, and special opportunities that may arise.

Each retreat at the Edge features healthy doses of dreamtime, adventure, community, creativity, time spent in nature, and a dash of surprise. Guests always have the choice to take solo or rest time in lieu of planned experiences.

While a detailed itinerary is not available, you can count on and prepare for the activities used to describe the flavour of this retreat. Meals are generally served at 8:30, 12:30, and 6pm. When appropriate, optional early-morning or late-night experiences may be offered.

Arrival Time & Directions

Arrival time is between 2 – 3 pm with programming beginning at 3:30.  We encourage our guests to arrive on time and stay to experience the full retreat, which generally ends after brunch on the final day. Please let us know if you expect to arrive after 3.

You can find us easily on Google or Apple maps, or view detailed directions here.

What to Bring

We’ll be spending time both indoors and out in nature, and we invite you to dress appropriately for the season to stay comfortable, warm, and dry. There’s no dress code and most guests wear their “retreat-casual”.

We encourage guests to bring a surprise to share with others – this might take the form of a game or activity, an instrument/song/poem, or a tasty treat.

This retreat was so special. It was a reset and renew for habits that I didn’t even know weren’t serving me. I walked away feeling recharged as well as super sad that the retreat was ending because I loved it so much! I would recommend this retreat to anyone. I look forward to attending again!

Natalie Sebastian

“Thank you for a truly transformative weekend! Wonderful accommodations, spectacular scenery, and delicious meals! I met new people from all over Ontario and we shared stories and supported each other through the journey of resetting our habits, which will lead us towards self-love and positivity.”

Melanie MacKinnon

“I gave myself the gift of the habit reset and it has given me more than I expected. I was given a chance to rejuvenate, recharge and reset. From tiny yoga on the dock to walks in the forest before breakfast, to workshops and well balanced group activities and time alone, all helped me to rediscover my core values. When you surround yourself with beauty and peace, you can reset tiny habits to find and create beauty and peace. Thank you for this amazing experience!”
