Retreat just past the outskirts of St. Louis to a daylong overnight mini retreat with Jill Duncan and Christine Kick. Located 30 minutes from downtown at Stillpointe Wellness Center in Belleville, IL, we will share 29 gorgeous acres of land that includes a wellness center with a yoga studio inside. There is a home on the property where the owners reside including a full kitchen where we will enjoy three delicious, healthy meals prepared by Jill and Christine. Our time together will involve workshops on Thai Massage and Lunar Therapeutic AcroYoga, where you will receive, as well as learn the basics of giving Thai Massage and Therapeutic flight. Additionally, you’ll enjoy activities to help build community, spark a sense of adventure and play, and foster connection.

Join us for this special daylong + Overnight staycation of Self care and restoration


Some of our retreat members will be coming with a friend or romantic partner, whereas others will be flying solo. Do not let “not having a partner” hinder you from attending, as we encourage everyone who wants to participate to come and join our community as we foster and build new connections and friendships. Most activities will not be partner specific, as we always practice Lunar Therapeutic flight in small groups, and many of our other activities will involve facilitated co-mingling within the full group.

ESCAPE TO A MAGICAL LAND

Stillpointe Wellness Center has so much beauty to offer, including 29 acres of midwest land, with goregeously designed gardens and Fall foliage. In October, the air is crisp, the leaves have fallen, and there is a touch of magic in the air. There are plenty of flat spots that are perfect for setting up a tent, or if you prefer, you can choose to camp indoors at the Wellness Center. We will have access to modern conveniences such as indoor plumbing and a full kitchen. If for any reason, you would like to attend the event but are hesitant about camping, please reach out to Christine or Jill.
