Your Heart Matters: 
led by Dr. Laura Foster
Friday, Sept 20th – Sunday, Sept 22nd 2019
at Sugar Ridge Retreat Center (Midland, Ontario)

This woman’s retreat is an exploration and celebration of SELF.
Self-awareness is the path to creating the life that truly matters. How we honor ourselves and what we truly believe about who we are and why we are here is the foundation of living.  

It is my knowing that we are all divinely created as perfect beings. Nothing about this retreat will change you. Instead, this retreat will cultivate a deeper appreciation of who you already are and a remembering & calling back of the parts of you that you feel disconnected from. You will leave this retreat feeling more purposeful in the way you move about your life. You’ll feel more aligned in your decisions and have more clarity around what feels right for you.  
Because I have you for an entire weekend, I must add that this weekend is meant to feel light, fun and gratifying because if it’s not, then we are missing the GIFT of taking an entire weekend away from our busyness and multi-tasking lives. ♥
We are also choosing to celebrate women and our innate ability to create connection. For many of us, our female friendships and connections have become a lifeline that cultivates joy, belonging and self-love. For some of us we don’t feel like we have the kinds of friendships and connections that we truly long for. We will talk about creating deep, authentic connections and how to cultivate more meaningful relationship within our lives. 

The weekend will involve journaling, quiet introspection, group gathering and workshop as well as meditation, yoga (with Ali Martin ♥), group bonfire under the moonlit sky, hiking on and around the vast, beautiful property and a chance to wear your cozy clothes while you wrap your hands around warm mugs of coffee or tea with your journal in hand.  

It is possible to have your life reflect your deepest desires even when we feel like our life has become complicated and so very full of tasks and responsibilities. You will leave this weekend feeling more deeply connected within yourself and to other amazing women. You will feel a greater sense of clarity, hope, belonging and inspiration.

You will remember how much fun it is to create play, fun and connection to nature and to like-minded women. 

You will feel like your heart set and your mind set are operating as one.

Can’t wait to meet you (or reunite with you) and enjoy an incredible weekend together.

Laura ♥

Sugar Ridge Retreat Centre is located 160 kms north of Toronto near Midland, Ontario. The retreat centre is located on 150 acres and surrounded by 3000 acres of public land with 25 kms of trails. This gorgeous property is like a hidden oasis close to the GTA. 
A stay here is like comfortable camping. Each of the beautifully-constructed cedar cabins have all-cotton bedding and warm duvets topping the beds, a ceiling fan, and electric heat. Each cabin sleeps four, with either one double bed and two twins (occupancy 3) or four twin beds (occupancy 4). We offer shared, private & semi-private accommodation packages for this retreat.

There are no bathroom facilities or running water in the cabins, so you have to walk across the wildflower field to use the common bathrooms in the main lodge, where you’ll find clean, well-designed private shower cubicles with plenty of hot water (less than a minute walk from any of the cabins).

Since the idea of a stay here is to unwind and reconnect, the cabins don’t have phones or TVs. You will probably be able to pick up a cell phone signal in your cabin, although you may be more peaceful if you put away your phone for a few days. If you really need to get online, wi-fi is available in the lodge. I encourage you to leave your technology behind. 

It is so incredibly quiet here and you will definitely feel the pull of nature and the sense of getting away from it all.

About Dr. Laura Foster
Laura has been a holder of space and a lover of potential for as long as she can remember. Her gift is in her intuitive ability to listen and hear what’s not being said and in being able to connect to the energy of an individual and a group. As an empath with a strong ability to communicate, Laura has naturally gravitated towards leading retreats and workshops for over 20 years – both as a chiropractor speaking of true health and wellbeing and as a woman who desires deep, inward, meaningful connection. 
Laura’s inspiration draws on her own life experience as a woman who created a big bold life, only to realize that what she had created didn’t represent who she truly was. Her journey from heart ache to break through led her to her own deep discovery of who she truly is and how to connect with her own answers. 
Laura is a mom of two teenage boys and a dog. She maintains a part-time busy clinic practice as a family chiropractor as well as leading weekend and multi-day domestic & international retreats, workshops and speaking engagements. You can connect with her soul-inspired offerings at and on IG @laurafoster2.

About Ali Martin
Infused with intention and grace, Ali's Yoga classes offer opportunity to come home to the deepest parts of yourself; to connect with the essence of who you are. 

Her teachings are based in Yin, Restorative and Hatha yoga - where she honors the practice in a way that allows her students to practice free from any responsibilities other than being who they, as they are - in that moment. It is from this place that we soften to our souls presence. Through mindful movement, the focus of each class is establishing intuitive connection to the Self.

Ali is passionate about the transformational shift that a dedicated practice has to offer and deeply respects the power it has to bring joy, peace and deep healing.
