Emotional Empowerment Through Radical Acceptance: Mini Retreat

The retreat will provide a sacred and safe space to fully express your current challenges, dreams, and aspirations while being held in gentle support. Tears, cathartic release, and full out belly laughter are all welcome.

It is a perfect getaway for you alone, a girl’s trip, romantic weekend, or family outing.
