4-Days, 3-Nights 

Denton, on Maryland's Eastern Shore

This Retreat

Eagle Watch on the Choptank River is located in historic Denton, Maryland.

The property is on the river and consists of the main house, a guest house,

and a tiny house. Our host, Nancy, lives in the main house and attends to

guests who regularly visit the property. You'll be able to enjoy the property's trails and organic garden, paddling the river on our SUPs or canoes, feeding the chickens, laying by the saltwater pool, or soaking in the hot tub.

Stevie will guide daily movement practices that include yoga, a paddle session, and SUP yoga, as well as provide opportunities for self-reflection about your current self-care practices and vision casting for the future. Nancy will lead workshops on cooking, fermenting, and canning and provide the option to participate in the meal prep. The evening session will be led by one of our amazing guest speakers who will then stay with us for dinner and conversation. One evening, we'll enjoy a bonfire while participating in a vision casting activity, and our last day together will be a guided tour of Cottingham Farm on the Eastern Shore plus the chance to take home produce.

We see you...

There's a lot going on in that beautiful mind of yours, right?

  • You're overwhelmed and consumed by caring for your family

  • You're spending all your energy on work and feel like there's nothing left at the end of the day

  • You're the gatekeeper of your home and want to make healthier choices, but there's too much to sort through, so you put it off

  • You're a caretaker, a nurturer, for your kids... your friends... your husband... and you do love it

  • But, you put yourself last... every. single. time. 

Your Hostesses

This mother/daughter duo has had a passion for healthy living for a whole lifetime

Together they hope to make your retreat experience one-of-a-kind.
