Making Connections

A three-night retreat with Elaine Wynn

Everything at Well Being Retreat Center supports health and wellness: wellness of body, wellness of mind, and, of course, wellness of spirit.


Well Being Retreat Center is located on 160 acres in rural, scenic Northeast Tennessee surrounded by two miles of the Powell River. The land is quiet enough that you can hear a deer rustling from across the river, or an owl calling from a mile away, or hear the breeze rustling the autumn leaves. There is a choice of Accommodations. Meals are fresh, flavorful, gluten-free and healthy. 

Well Being Retreat Center is steeped in Nature with distant mountain views and quiet river walks, has 16 comfortable cabins that can sleep up to 35 guests, an environmentally-controlled meeting room, a licensed commercial kitchen which provides fresh, mostly organic, often on-farm, meals - vegetarian or non-vegetarian or both. The retreat center is 1.5 hours northeast of Knoxville, TN;  2.25 hours west of Asheville, NC.  Directions can be found here.

The scenic Powell River flows around Well Being Retreat Center for 2 1/2 miles nestled in the Cumberland Mountains.
