Live life authentically.

Our 3-day retreat will take place  January 24-26, 2020.  Join us as we explore how to move through life’s transitions with grace.

Healing Starts Here.

As we explore the struggles we experience in our life transitions, we will discover the strength and knowledge we also receive from them.  Learning to be authentically present in the mystery of life’s transitions opens our hearts to acceptance and insight, leading to more meaningful, productive, and joyful lives. Our format will include supportive interactive group participation, guided meditations, and insightful creative activities, with personal time to journal, enjoy nature, or walk the labyrinth.


A retreat at The Inn at the Rustic Gate is a nourishing, one-of-a-kind, “5 Star” experience. Innkeepers Marcia and Pat offer extraordinary hospitality in this fully restored turn-of-the-century, 7,500 sq. ft. farmhouse in the heart of Michigan.

Situated on 150 acres of woodlands, wetlands, rolling meadows, and a private pond, it is a true sanctuary for the body & soul. Guest rooms are beautifully appointed with comfort and rest in mind. Each has a private bath. You will dine on gourmet, organic food, consciously and lovingly prepared by Chef Sharon. All dietary needs can be accommodated.


Take a much needed break from the daily grind of life and rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit.
