Why Nurture ?

Cape Breton and worldwide guests are still recovering from Covid losses and more recently from Hurricane Fiona.

Self-care is a radical act. It's not obvious or easy.  For those of us who provide services--whether as a parent,  student, worker or for something you believe in--it's often a challenge to take time for yourself.  Reminds me of instructions on an airplane to get your oxygen mask before helping others.  Otherwise, you may not be helpful at all.

Do you get to the point where it's time to take a deep breadth, and stop doing for others?  Some time to recover from the ongoing stress of covid, hurricane Fiona or just the day to day.

A member of our staff identifies the "Nurture Yourself" as the 3 R's

….Reconnect , Relax & Recharge....

Sometimes it takes folks a few hours to recover and arrive here fully and to relax.

It hard to describe the nurture part but you'll feel it and we will share various ways to develop nurturing patterns for ourselves and others.

Some of the experiences include:


  • Traditional Welcome & Cleansing by Mi'kmaq Elder
  • Yoga, Qi Gong, Meditation
  • Guided Hikes
  • Introduction to Auricular Acupuncture and Reiki
  • Live  Music --Concert & Music Jam,
  • Art Journeys in Nature
  • Hot tubs, InfraRed & Barrel Saunas
  • Unique lodging in yurts, chalets & tiny house along the Atlantic & Cabot Trail
  • Delicious food and snacks
  • Fires

Its all about having a great experience which are being offered by various activities, food and people at Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort and Retreat Center.

Depending on the season, few things might be added or removed but The Wellness Retreat will provide your choice of  the experiences listed above.

In Nature

Cabot Shores Wilderness area along Indian Brook and the Atlantic and Church Pond is a very special and powerful place, as you can see on the ground and from the air

You may see eagles flying overhead or sitting on trees

hot tub is a large tub full of water used for hydrotherapy, relaxation or pleasure. Some have powerful jets for massage purposes. Hot tubs are sometimes also known as "spas" or by the trade name Jacuzzi, while Cabot Shores features some hot tubs made of cedar as well as traditonal hot tubs with jets depending on your lodging.

Adventures (Mild to Wild)

Offerings  (Is it about Being or Doing?)

How can you do so much in one weekend?  Really it's a bit of choosing what you'd like to attend that speaks to you. There are definite times and classes but it isn't structured like school.

There is a structure for you if you wish one and you can also be spontaneous, just being here and making sure you get some time to relax and recharge.

It is really about being fully here and also having fun.

You'll find your own path.
