An oasis for the Mind, Body & Soul, Aldermarsh is the perfect place to take a deep slow breath and unwind from your busy life.
Nestled on the edge of a beautiful marshland in the Maxwelton Valley at the south end of Whidbey Island, the wooded 5-acre facility is sustainably managed and includes organic gardens, a cordwood sauna, outdoor Japanese soaking tub, medicine wheel, outdoor fire pit, and the Marsh House for sacred gatherings. Being on this sacred land gives one an opportunity to slow down, listen attentively, and dive into what emerges.
