The Saltwater Mountain Woman Retreat – “ONSITE” – Where we bring our SIGNATURE RETREAT to YOU!

We love to travel, so if you love to host, let’s talk!

Our signature experience is offered both locally (York, Maine) or onsite (we travel to you). Amy Hopkins leads an immersive women’s weekend retreat where the focus is on CONNECTION – with ourselves and other women, EDUCATION – how cold-water dipping supports life transitions, and INTEGRATION – through experiential and guided exercises.
