The Urban Hermitage Experience is an inspiring journey inward to hear the longings of your SOUL. In this cozy space with a variety of tools at one’s disposal, you are invited to take a deep dive into self-inquiry and creativity. You can chose this experience for a completely solo journey or you can add on my facilitation as a guide with intention setting, meditation, massage, trauma release or tarot readings. The experience can be elected by the day or half day. And the space can just be used as a remote workspace.
