Rest, Restore & Reconnect

Welcome to The Subtle Shift @ Ravenswood, where you will find nature’s embrace and personalized healing to nurture your mind, body, and soul. Nestled amidst the serene beauty of nature, our sanctuary offers a haven for those seeking respite and rejuvenation or a deeper insight into their spiritual journey. Here, the rhythm of nature sets the pace, inviting you to unwind and reconnect with your soul.

At The Subtle Shift, we understand that healing is a holistic journey, encompassing both physical and spiritual realms. That’s why we offer the opportunity to immerse yourself in nature with a unique blend of rustic accommodations and energy healing sessions tailored to your individual needs. 

Settle into our cozy cabins in the woods and then step into our tranquil healing spaces where Denise will guide you through transformative sessions designed to bring through the wisdom, insight and guidance your soul has to share.  Her unique blend of reiki, light language and channeled messages can provide healing at the spiritual, emotional and physical level.

Between sessions, immerse yourself in the rejuvenating embrace of nature. Explore the forest trail, breathe in the crisp, invigorating air, or simply bask in the peaceful serenity of your surroundings. Our yurt nestled among the trees offers a perfect space for meditation, quiet contemplation and yoga.

Soul Sanctuary Packages

A Sample Itinerary
A Two Night Retreat

Arrive at the lovely Ravenswood property and check into your cozy glamping cabin to enjoy a quiet evening unwinding. You might prepare something on the barbeque or head into the quaint cottage town of Bobcaygeon for dinner at one of its many restaurants located just 12 mintues away.

The next morning you will meet Denise in the healing cabin for a Soul Journey Energy Session where you will begin with a personal cacao ceremony to set intentions and open your heart for healing. Ceremonial Cacao, renowned for its gentle, high-vibrational properties, enhances your connection to your energetic self.

You will then transition to the Soul Journey Energy Session during which Denise uses her unique blend of reiki, light language and channeled messages to bring through the wisdom, insight and guidance your soul has to share and clear and align your energy to support healing at the emotional, physical and spiritual level. 

The session will be rounded out with a deep dive oracle card reading for additional insight and validation of the messages gleaned through the energy session.

After your Soul Journey Session, you might return to your cozy cabin to rest, spend time in the yurt or walk the property. You may even take a short drive to nearby Kawartha Highlands Signature Park for a short hike by the river or explore First Nations culture at the beautiful Whetung Gallery and Gift Shop at the Curve Lake Reserve.

That evening you are invited to the yurt for a private Yoga session with our expert Rachelle. Designed to rejuvenate your body and awaken your inner awareness, this session helps cultivate a deeper sense of connection and relaxation through slow, mindful movements and deep breathing. Tucked in the forest, our yurt sanctuary provides the perfect setting to realign with your body’s innate wisdom and rediscover harmony from within.

As the day fades to dusk, return to your cabin, prepare a meal and sit by a crackling bonfire under a blanket of stars.  Connect with the universe and contemplate your new sense of peace and wholeness after a day of healing.

On your final morning make a leisurely breakfast before heading back to the yurt to meet with Denise where she will lead you through a meditation and light language exercise to further integrate your healing from the day before and provide tools for continued healing and expansion. Together you will have the opportunity to chat about your healing journey and address any questions you may have as you prepare to head home, restored and ready for the next stage of your path.
