In 1998, your hosts, Jean and Bill Anderson bought 40 acres along Eddy Creek, at the foot of Mount Eddy, with spectacular views of Mount Shasta. After summers in the tipi, they built and lived in the yurt for two years while designing and building a new house above the upper meadow. Jean is a Breema bodyworker and instructor, certified Yoga instructor, artist and has had a healing practice since 1996. 'Something about this land and the yurt supports rest, nurturing, renewal, creativity, adventure ... whatever our guests have come for.'
As you contemplate your stay at Eddy Retreat we invite you to take the idea of vacation a little deeper and consider the option of an “intentional vacation” – using the ritual of vacation as an opportunity to create a breakthrough in one’s life, to explore an edge of potential growth, a habitual pattern of behavior or point of view which you would like to shed for a new way of being in the world. Your intention might involve risk, either emotional or physical, taking on a goal that’s been on the back of your mind for some time which fear or habit has kept you from exploring. Your vacation could be an adventure into this territory. An “intentional vacation” is an opportunity to set up your get away so that you come back a new person.
