Even in a year as hard as this one,
there is still so much to be grateful for.

Let's Get Abundant!

This harvest season is all about abundance. But in the high speed bustle of the holidays, it often feels more like scarcity. Especially this year with a global pandemic, social unrest, being isolated from our loved ones, and so much more…

The holidays hold for us many things, outpourings of love, the joys and sometimes difficulties of connecting with family, bridging ever changing differences, keeping tradition, giving and giving some more, grief for those missing, and striving to share our authentic selves with dear ones that think they have us “all figured out”… To name but a few dynamics!

Many of us won’t even be able to gather with family due to Covid 19 this year!

Amidst the tensions and to-do’s it’s easy to forget why and what we are celebrating in the first place! 

This is why we have created this Grateful Gathering to root, connect, and rest, right before we jump into the busy comings and goings of Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year or whatever else you might be celebrating.

Wakes virtual retreat is an amazing intimate and mindful event that helped me create some beautiful space and time for myself (mind, body and soul) not only for the day, but long-term. Ada and Nathan are so delicate and accepting, not to mention their magical music. I was blown away by their program, approach, and the warm company of people they’ve gathered. They definitely over-delivered with the depth, variety, and a bunch of super-cool surprise elements throughout the day. To me it felt like a real-life retreat and a travel in space. Thank you!

Virtual Retreat PArticipant

1. Music

Music is the language of emotion. Let the vibrations of our music gently release any sticky old emotional baggage. We compose and perform powerfully crafted musical experiences using our voices in beautiful harmony, mantra to move and uplift, and healing instruments from around the world.

2. Mindfulness

Our minds are one of the few constant companions we will have with us throughout our entire lives. They are the gatekeepers of our happiness and the tricksters that tempt us toward stress. We can't change what happens to us, but with practice, we can transform the way we respond to the world to live happier and more fulfilling lives.

3. Movement

We are trained and practiced yoga teachers and lovers of expression through movement and body. Yoga brings us into alignment in body mind and spirit. It helps us breathe space into the tight areas in our bodies, space into the tangled places in our minds and space between the ego, and our true identity in soul.


All timings are in Pacific Daylight Time (West Coast USA). Though if it works for your timezone, we’d love for you to join us wherever in the world you are! 

7am - 8:30am
Morning Movement Session

All bodies and abilities welcome. This session will focus more on experiencing the power of mindful movement than making it a tough workout. Though, you will definitely breathe deeper and start the day with a glistening glow.

11am - 1pm
Gratitude Group Call with Breakout Sessions

Get to know one another more, reflect on, and magnify the gratitude that fills your daily life. This session will include a guided meditation and space for active listening and sharing.

4pm - 5pm
Live Folk Music Cocktail Hour

It’s time to relax with a laid back music session and your favorite beverage in hand. A time to let our hair down, smile and sway, and maybe even sing along. Love filled libations and sumptuous songs to whet your appetite before we break for dinner.

8pm - 9:30pm
Evening Sound Bath

This immersive sound meditation will bring our retreat to a close and send you sweetly off to sleep. Using many sound healing instruments from around the world, and original mantra style songs sung in beautiful male/female harmony, we will share in a profoundly relaxing musical experience to let any remaining stress melt away.

We Love Retreats

And the people who join us love them too!

I have told a LOT of people about your retreat and the change I experienced has really stuck with me in amazing ways.... which is in itself quite remarkable even compared to major books and other retreats I've attended. So... thank you both!

Have you ever watched a fire starting to die out and realize that with a little fuel it could burst into flames? That is how I feel about all I learned at our retreat. I was watching gratitude burn out, in myself and the world around me, and the retreat was new fuel! I am fanning the flames!

A Little Bit About Us...
