We offer art retreats, meditation and yoga classes, private art lessons, plein air painting field trips, nature walks, talks about art and spirituality and more. Our mission is to help others find their creative muse, to trust in themselves and have the courage to let go and get lost in the healing process of intuitive creation.

Please check our calendar for upcoming retreats and events.

Yoga and Meditation

At all workshops we make time for yoga and meditation since we feel these practices are essential to the creative process. When you align the body and mind you clear the channel for creativity to flow through. You will feel better and the voice of your creative muse will be heard more clearly. Suitable for a variety of skill levels.


The House

Designed and built over the course of 17 years by master craftsman Gordon Ferrier (and friends). The Woodspirit house itself is a work of art. The solid wood structural beams add Beauty and a sense of strength throughout the house. A large wrap-around porch is a great shady place to lounge or get work done in the warmer months.

The Land

Time spent in nature is essential for healing and connecting to your true self. Find inner peace, breath deep, take in the beauty of the landscape, bring a camera, sketchbook or just your favorite walking stick.

Woodspirit Artist Refuge is located on 11 acres of private forested land 15 minutes northeast of Duvall Washington. A 10 minute walk from the house will take you into the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. The healing location is a main reason to come stay with us. This is a magical land out here and we are excited to share it with you.


Home-cooked organic meals by one of our hired professional chefs are a part of all retreats. We can accommodate any food restrictions such as vegan or gluten-free. These delicious organic meals are designed to aid in your healing process. We believe that spiritual healing starts with what we put into our bodies and we want to offer only the best to you.
