What people are saying

“This retreat was a great and safe space to be able to let my guard down and relax. While relaxing, I was able to reflect and realize how much I have been holding in and onto, and this retreat taught me ways to set boundaries, and cope with trauma and stressors of life.”

Tucked away in the mountains, together we will unplug from the distractions of daily life and keep things as natural as possible. Peace and quiet are essential to unpacking challenges and pursuing wellness. You will be able to take a deep breath of fresh air, let your guard down, and get away for a few days – focused solely on health and healing.
