Every detail of the weekend was perfect, magical, intentional, and with a desire to cultivate love and compassion. The location at the Spirit House was absolute magic. The schedule was so thoughtfully curated that it felt relaxing, full, and allowed plenty of time for rest, solitude, connection, and soaking in the environment. Gaby and Rhea are such gracious hosts and planned an incredible weekend. I have never been on a yoga retreat, but this sets the bar extremely high for any future retreats. It was everything I needed and more.
This was one of my favorite weekends, period. I entered the space full of optimistic hopes for a beautiful, soulful, rejuvenating experience, and it still exceeded my expectations on every level. Gabby and Rhea's efforts in putting on and carrying out this retreat were extraordinary from start to finish. The number of thoughtful, intentional touches they included, therapeutic modalities they shared, and delicious nourishing meals we were served is beyond comparison with any retreat or trip I've taken. Being in one place for several days let me sink into and experience each element fully, and there was so much to relish. Between the yoga classes, group circles around a lovely alter we created, family-style meals and activities such as creating our own terrariums, there was plenty of time for soaking in the outside hot tub, hiking the nearby hills, getting a massage from Rhea's expert hands, reading tarot cards with new friends, reading and journaling, and taking personal reflection time in one of the many cozy corners inside or outside the gorgeous Spirit House home. The value I gained in terms of food and wellness wisdom, connecting with women on the issues nearest and dearest to our hearts, and finding peace and inspiration as soaked up time in this very special setting cannot be quantified, making it the best money and time I could possibly have spent on myself. If this was a monthly option I would do whatever I needed to in order to get back every time. If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity of going on a retreat led by Gabby and/or Rhea, don't walk, run to sign up!
