What to Expect

Liminalia is a remote property 20 minutes west of Vernonia, Oregon (80 minutes from Portland) in the foothills of the coastal range. Rock Creek winds its way through the property and there are acres of forest to wander. 

There are 5 shared cabins with either single beds or bunk beds. Bathrooms are located in the main house a short distance away. Unfortunately, the property is not ADA accessible at this time. 

All the cabins are simple and beautifully furnished, warm and cozy. Bedding is provided including comfy pillows and down comforters. 

The main house is built on Ayurvedic properties. Guests often remark on its incredible grounding energy. There we will enjoy amazing, gluten and dairy free meals prepared by Paige Common. The adjacent light-filled studio space is where we gather for group meetings and other optional activities

Bonus services can be added to your experience: massage, facials and tarot card readings by Jendeah. Liminalia also has a sauna, steam room, and outdoor shower.

For a truly off-grid experience, there is no cell phone service or WiFi at the property. There is a landline for emergencies. 

Our theme for the weekend is REST.

Throughout the weekend we will explore different types of rest (physical, emotional, spiritual, etc) and what it takes to prioritize rest in a world that’s designed to exhaust us. We’ll do this through group activities, conversations and thoughtfully designed rest experiences. All activities are optional, though group gatherings are encouraged. There will be plenty of free time for those that prefer it, as well as structured activities for those who like something to do.
