Join us for Conscious Change Retreat – Authentic Relating and Mindfulness – September 2023!

Join us for an extraordinary journey of self-discovery and genuine connections at the Authentic Relating Ottawa’s Conscious Change Retreat Weekend, happening September 22-24, 2023 just west of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada! ✨

Immerse yourself in a transformative experience where vulnerability is celebrated, and authentic human connections are nurtured both within us and with others. With the changing of the seasons from summer to fall, and as the leaves begin to turn we’ll find ourselves in the last “camp” of the season including: 

  • Bonfires
  • Walking meditations
  • Morning yoga
  • Tons of conscious communication skill-building deep dives!
  • A natural swimming pond and a hot tub


Through interactive workshops, heartfelt conversations, and immersive activities, we will delve deep into the art of true connection, expanding our capacity for empathy, understanding, and meaningful relationships. Springboards for creating the next season of our lives consciously = Conscious Change.

At ARO we believe:

  • Conscious living is for everyone and everyone has the potential to change, grow, and cultivate genuine connections.
  • Conscious change begins with self awareness and the courage to excavate our own inner landscape so that we may hold compassionate space for others as they navigate theirs.
  • A truly transformational experience encourages a willingness to both see and be seen, all parts of ourselves, as we are, and as we are not.

Dive deep into the art of true connection, expanding your capacity for empathy, understanding, and meaningful relationships. This is your weekend to experience conscious change and grow!
