Grief Retreat @ The Sou'wester Lodge
Nov 10 @ 2:00 pm – Nov 12 @ 1:00 pm

Grief Retreat with The Portland Grief house

Two night retreat with guided meditations and sound healing

Who/How much: w/Julia Francis and Laura Green of The Portland Grief House $498-807 includes lodging

What: We will spend the weekend in conversation with the non-human world; asking what medicine we can offer and what we can take. Except for grief spills and vocalizing during sound healing, we will keep conversation with humans to a bare minimum. We’ll use guided sound work, yoga practice and meditation to let spoken language shift away from the center of our attention. We’ll listen deeply, and talk sincerely with the world around us, and believe what we hear and learn. Retreat pricing includes various Sou’Wester lodging options.

About Celestial Window:

My work is focused in the lineage of Worsley Five Element Acupuncture, however, in my 8 years of clinical training I studied many modalities and can offer a variety of treatment strategies. Acupuncture is a beautiful craft with techniques for bringing flow to stuck places, and fostering a deeper harmonization within the body. It is based on philosophy that sees the human being as whole, with the full potential for healing as innate. Acupuncture uses a network of physical connections to activate the body’s own healing potential and is supportive for all aspects of life, from pain management, fertility support, digestive disorders, to finding creative expansion and self actualization.

Acupuncture & Sound Bath: “Sound Dérive” @ The Sou'wester Lodge

Solstice at Sou’wester

Acupuncture + Sound Bath

“Sound Dérive (Drift)”

An Embodied-Listening-Acupuncture-Sound Bathing-Fluxus-Art-Exercise with Unity Garnish x Feast of The Epiphany

Wednesday, Dec 20, 2023 | 6-7:30pm


For this unique group “sound bathing” experience we are invoking the 1960s French Fluxus Art Exercise of the “Dérive (Drift)”, which in essence describes a meditation through which one is invited to “get lost on purpose”, in order to facilitate an embodied state of inspiration and wellbeing crafted through the blending of multiple creative mediums.  Utilizing sound, visual art and the option of gentle acupuncture, participants will be guided to reset and renew into an evolution of self.  In the vein of Brian Eno’s Oblique Strategies, individuals will leave with a one of a kind art object to carry the experience with them into life and the remainder of their time at the Sou’Wester.

Please arrive on time and bring pillows, blankets, yoga mats and other comfort items to make yourself cozy resting on the earth.
Location: The Sou’wester Lodge Pavilion 3728 J Place Seaview, WA

Quadraphonic sound modality generates a multidimensional ebb and flow of sonic phenomena, enveloping you in a multidimensional audio and natural landscape and allowing you to truly disappear into an ocean of vibration. This sanctuary of sound will be crafted through a variety of acoustic instruments, field recordings from the Sou’wester and surrounding natural environment, analog synthesizers, and binaural sources, all woven together to support you in rejuvenation and self-discovery. Take it a layer deeper with the option of receiving acupuncture and gentle bodywork to support the body and nervous system in deeper listening and integration on a core level.

Collective Release (camp)Fire @ The Sou'wester Lodge
Dec 21 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Collective Release Fire 

Outside in the trailer court in front of the lodge, we will gather into an expanded moment of presence with the weight of the world, a time of reverence through lively celebration of the complexity of existence in togetherness, where whatever wishes to unfold may do so naturally through the intentional lighting of a fire.  There will be pieces of paper and pens on which to write and reflect and then offer the writings into the fire, instruments with which we can play, and an invitation to donate whatever resources are available, financial or otherwise, to Source Food and Goods, a group offering community aid to the local Palestinian community in Portland, OR .

*No drinks in public. Quiet hours after 10p.

The Brief
Explore, savor, and rest in the numinous through this weekend-long retreat with contemplative guide, media artist, and writer, M Freeman. Inspired by decades of heart-centered contemplative practices and by Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh’s mindfulness teaching that rest is our most basic peace work, Freeman’s Contemplative Rest cultivates engagement in the mystical realm and nurtures awe as a profoundly fortifying resource.

We’ve all had unforgettable experiences of awe. Maybe it was on a hike, or holding a newborn, or watching a flock of birds. Maybe it was in moonlight, or with your cat, or in a hospital room. This spacious weekend features practice sessions in which Freeman will lead participants through exploring and honoring recollected moments, and will then guide folks into reverent, somatic, contemplative rest. Participants will be invited into reflective writing, to share reflections and insights, and to enjoy lots of solo relaxation time. All this wonder happens along the stunning Washington State coast at the Sou’wester Lodge and Vintage Travel Trailer Resort.

How much: Retreat fee is sliding scale, starting at $325 – Tickets

Lodging is additional. The Sou’wester has set aside select lodging options for retreat participantsBook lodging directly here with the Sou’wester.

People can expect to rest anywhere from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours depending on what your body needs and what you are comfortable with.

  • How long do I stay? Depends. At least 30 minutes is recommended but listening to your body’s needs is most important. Sometimes people fall asleep and sometimes they don’t, but what is most important is that they relax.
