Pine Manor has been the vision of owner, Gail Warner, MA, MFT, who wanted a place to hold her own workshops and retreats, as well as offering it to others looking for a breathing space and a place to meet other wonderful people. Gail has been a psychotherapist and retreat facilitator for over 35 years. As a person who benefited from the healing aspects of retreats, Gail wanted to provide a space for discovery, rest, and renewal that support people on their own personal journey’s. She is the “dream weaver” who imagined a place for spiritual and psychological exploration. The ongoing weaving of that dream is what continues to develop and grow Pine Manor. Gail’s ability to give permission and encouragement has allow people to find a second “home” at Pine Manor. It is Gail’s heart-centered care that has held the space, along with many others who share her vision.
Gail is the facilitator of a Silent Retreat~ a 5 day retreat of personal reflection that is offered twice a year. This exploratory journey is housed in silence and is an opportunity to inquire about what matters to you. You will be able to follow the thread of your own growing edge through journaling, soul collage, sandtray and other creative means. This is a time to harvest your own internal wisdom. There are also opportunities to explore the natural world through nearby hikes in the Cleveland National Forest.
Several Soul Collage days are also held at Pine Manor throughout the year. These are one day events to connect with yourself and others through the process of shared wisdom through Soul Collage.
In addition to her work at Pine Manor, Gail also runs a private therapy practice in Mission Viejo. If you would like to contact Gail about setting up a personal meeting, please feel free to contact her directly.
