WITH THE GLOBAL COVID-19 PANDEMIC, CELEBRATE YOU IS STAYING ABREAST OF ALL NATIONAL GUIDANCE AND DIRECTION IN MAINTAINING THE SAFETY AND HEALTH OF EVERYONE. OUR RETREAT IS SCHEDULED FOR JUNE 5-7, 2020, AND WE ARE STILL PLANNING ACCORDINGLY. HOWEVER, THE FORUM (IF WE NEED TO CHANGE), HAS NOT YET BEEN DECIDED. ANYONE WHO HAS REGISTERED WILL BE ENTITLED TO RECEIVE 100% REFUND.
Imagine being a the Celebrate You - "Be the True You" three-day all-inclusive retreat. This time is carved out just for you where you are able to escape from the rest of “your” world. Think about how relaxing it will feel sitting by the pool, taking a leisurely swim, getting a gentle massage, or perhaps walking along a beautiful trail, or just enjoying the serenity of the moment.
Envision the fun you can have with like-minded women, who just like you, took this opportunity to get-away to a serene escape where they can just be their true selves. There is no need for pretense because everyone is here for the same thing…to take a moment to love and embrace themselves from the pressures of the outside world.
When you give yourself the gift of personal time, you open yourself up to endless possibilities. Experience renewing conversations and activities around embracing and living in your truth, feel the freedom of living without limits, and reignite your passion, purpose and drive so that you can be a better version of you.
Now imagine feeling that gentle balance and internal harmony as you walk through learning the importance of being present in all that you do, become centered in a state of joy, and apply the art of breathing for greater health and overall wellness. That's what "Be the True You" Retreat is all about. It's opening up and celebrating your truth and the beauty that is you! (SEE PHOTO GALLERY)
