During our time together we will paint, play and be inspired. Our nourishing and safe space will allow for deep connection with eachother and with ourselves. 

You will relax & renew... 

Get ready to dig deep and reconnect with yourself and your creativity. 

Enjoy the beauty of the North Fork of Long Island with it's lovely beautiful beaches, many vineyards and lovely seaside towns. 

If you choose to stay on site, you will be staying at North Sea House... a beautiful newly built estate with a pool, hot tub and beach for all retreat takers to enjoy. Ahhhh.... I wish I was there now... soaking my toes :) 

Please note: There are just 25 total participant spots available for this retreat. We have enough room for 12 participants to stay on-site at an additional cost. The remaining 13 may obtain lodging at one of the many nearby hotels. Onsite lodging will fill up fast so please reserve soon. 

Your tuition includes:

  • All breakfasts & lunches. Dinners are on your own. We are spending a special Saturday night meal together at a restaurant or at the estate. You will also have some time on your own that day to do a little shopping. Greenport is an artsy town that has some great shops. 
  • Snacks, water, coffee & tea provided daily
  • All teaching with Jennifer Mercede
  • Opening & closing gatherings daily
  • A special SOULSHINE Retreat & North Sea House welcome bag filled with goodies from Dvora, Deb & Jennifer too! 

Getting to the Retreat:

The closest airport is Islip (although flights are not as frequent there). Most of you will probably fly into JFK or Laguardia. You can rent a car and/or share rides/carpool. 

Meals: 

Please let us know of any food allergies. We will also have vegetarian options for every meal. Let us know of any concerns and we will do the best to accommodate you wherever possible.

The car ferry comes very frequently... you usually don't have to wait more than 5-10 minutes. It's $15 round trip for the car and 1st passenger and $2 each additional person.
