Elaine is a coach, a teacher, a follower of breadcrumbs, a believer of possibilities.


She’s been helping people reclaim their time for nearly 20 years. She started out as a professional organizer, helping high-powered people declutter their lives. Teaching MBA students to prepare for the demands of work and an intense academic program.


Elaine realized she was doing more than helping people manage priorities, she was helping them to reclaim time for what mattered most to them. From her TV show, Simply Zen, through a weekly newspaper column, speaking engagements from Johannesburg South Africa to Vancouver British Columbia and points in between and her monthly Full Moon ceremonies …Elaine has a gift for gathering people together and creating safe spaces for people to be their authentic selves. 


It’s a sacred experience, to be invited into peoples lives, to help them build the business and life of their dreams.

Your retreat host and owner of Fundy Regenerative Retreats

Time to relax.  Time to play. Time to Regenerate.

I feel so fortunate to have attended Elaine's 'Reclaiming Time' session today. This is one of the most profound, valuable, action oriented sessions where I had so many epiphanies and walked away feeling empowered to reorganize/prioritize the way I live my life and run my business. The 3 hr session flew by like it was 10 minutes. I am excited and empowered to put into action the things I learned today. Everyone would benefit tremendously from this session!

After hearing Elaine speak at the Professional Organiser Association Africa conference in 2008 I have hired her to work with my senior team and have engaged 1-2-1 with her on numerous occasions too. Each time, she exceeds my expectations.

Elaine is bubbly, creative, fun, enthusiastic and passionate about the success of others. She has inspired me and my team again and again.

If you enjoy positive energy and welcome the opportunity to move forward in your business or personal life, look no further.

Elaine is a genuine, energetic, outwardly-focused champion for anyone who wants to learn to better connect with their lives and their networks. I am a fan of her warmth and her kindness and her love of helping people to live boldly and to understand new ways to connect. Elaine is helpful and a hard worker. Hire her. She's wonderful.

Find peace and relaxation with yoga and meditation sessions.

Take in the magnificent views by walking the beach at sunset, eating meals in front of the ocean, or simply stepping out onto the porch with your favourite hot beverage.


or could be the constantly changing shoreline with jaw-dropping views around every corner. Like our red cliffs, that seem to have been poured into place millions of years ago. This is a land where dreams come true.  Where you will find relaxation, renewal and fresh perspectives.  Where you can reconnect with your inner child, find freedom by just being in the moment, and connect with others of like-mind searching for the same regenerative experience. 


Once known for building unstoppable schooners that journeyed to every corner of the world, these days, our small maritime village is seen as a place where visitors come for a reset by experiencing deeper connections to the earth, the sea and themselves.

It could be the cosmic planetary tug between the earth and the moon – the force that makes the world’s highest tides pour in and out of our harbour - maybe that’s the reason.


Sample Itinerary

This retreat will provide an opportunity to reconnect with your inner child, recharge your spirit, and regenerate your soul. We've curated these retreats around amazing experiences and... we've built in lots of time for the beach, the chill room, connecting with each other and of course alone time to regenerate.
