Retreats

It takes courage, growth, and commitment to become the best versions of ourselves.

Shift Wellness provides an opportunity to strengthen wellness and resiliency. Our programs have been carefully crafted for department leaders, teams, individuals, and spouses with a holistic approach to wellness through evidence-based modalities.

Our team of culturally competent clinicians and subject matter experts offer practical skills and tools to improve mental performance. Just like physical fitness and nutrition, the brain is an organ that must be cared for and a muscle that must be exercised to stay healthy.

The following retreats are typically hosted in small groups to foster a trusted community. When people connect with one another, they realize they are not alone and are able to experience tribal healing.
