Holiday Magic in Cape May
What's new for 2023? For many years we held our retreats in Cape May but now Najia is working on a way to bring the magic to your home via Zoom and retreat boxes mailed to you. It a great way to gather for part of the day and set intentions and enjoy homemade treats from your host.
What do we do on retreat ?
Treat yourself to a magical 2 night 3 day holiday inspired spiritual retreat in the beautiful Victorian Cape May at the winter quarters of the historic Chalfonte Hotel. Upon arrival you can warm yourself by our fireplace. You will be greeted with gourmet appetizers, cider and snugly gifts. We have our own kitchen so feel free to bring your favorite vegan dish to share for our first night or you may decide to dine at at many charming restaurants that this town offers. We will begin our first night with our manifestation and transformation projects such as making Snow Globe Wishing Ornaments. & learning your personal Numerology for 2023.
On our second day we continue with our "Manifestation and Transformation" crafts and exercises from the night before while we enjoy delicious homemade soup by the fire. We will also make or Wishing Candles. Later in the afternoon we head to the beach to have a Sacred Ceremony with our crowns, musical instruments,and Magic Dissolving Genie Bottles to cast into the ocean. At night you can cozy up to the fire with friends or join Najia tor a walking tour of see the lights outside the Candlelight House Tour. the beloved Christmas tree at Congress Hall and the magically decorated Town Center.
On Sunday we have our final farewells to our cottage before we head to the beach for casting away wishes into the ocean. We can enjoy lunch out and revisit some favorite places before heading to West Cape May and see the best holiday shopping at the West end Garage.
