Do you need a little heart and soul rejuvenation?


Of course you do! We all do! Unfortunately, we don’t give ourselves permission to do this often enough.

I want you to imagine yourself taking a break…

in a peaceful retreat, surrounded by nature…

a river, trees, and a grassy meadow…

eating delicious, wholesome food…

quietly listening to the birds sing…

sitting quietly with your thoughts and your breath…

tuning into the power of your own senses…

sharing and connecting with amazing women and focusing on just you… for a WHOLE weekend!

Sounds amazing doesn’t it? Well guess what? This experience can be your reality. I want to personally invite you to join me for the…

Boost Immune SystemA weekend just for you.

It is time. Time for you to make yourself a priority.

So many of us never allow ourselves time to just Be. Time, as an adult, to go inside and find out what our heart desires… explore our dreams.

Life is busy. It is constantly changing and moving, sometimes at the speed of light. While we may not be able to change that, what we can do is find a way to achieve balance.

We need to just let go for a little while and allow time and space to just Be.
Going on retreat is not a luxury…. It is a necessity. Coming back into balance requires us to step away from the busy, demanding lives we live.

We need to catch our breath (literally!). We need to pause, regroup and get back into touch with our soul. We spend so much of our time Doing. We need to take some time to just Be.

Give yourself the gift of nurturing time and space. Just for you. Get a little reset, some renewal and re-connect. Time to fill up your tank.

So please join me for the weekend.

This retreat was created to be a wonderful combination of relaxation, connection, self-care, and some gentle self-discovery for a deep, rich, nurturing experience.
As women, we focus on taking care of everyone in our life and strive for success in our careers. Sometimes by living this way, we leave vital pieces of ourselves behind along the way. Sometimes we do not even know those pieces are now missing.   We often arrive in our mid-life feeling empty, burned out or even invisible.   This retreat is designed to provide you time to intentionally come away from the responsibilities of your home, children, families, and jobs so that you can bask in your own essence for an entire luscious weekend. Here are a few of the amazing experiences you can expect during the retreat:


  • arms out on beachA beautiful, tranquil retreat space… take a peek here
  • Delicious, healthy food prepared with love and attention
  • A loving connection to your own heart and soul
  • Authentic connection with like-minded women as you embrace a new way of being and greater freedom and joy.
  • Explore the power of your own senses in creating a life of passion, pleasure and peace
  • Feel nourished and pampered
  • Fun, laughter, music and healthy body movement (oh yes my friend, there will be dancing!)
  • A beautiful ceremonial bonfire
  • An energy building, soulful drum circle
  • A calming singing bowl meditation to help you relax and rejuvenate
  • Discover how to consciously and graciously experience your life in a new way
