About this trip


In this life changing and luxurious Women's Therapy and Wellness Retreat, women will experience a balance of therapy and healing, serenity and wellness, as well as a deeper connection to self, others, and nature. We will have the opportunity to dive deeper into intergenerational wounding and begin to address and heal these trauma through somatic, expressive, and narrative therapy interventions.


My vision for all my retreats is to holistically treat our body, mind, and soul. To create an environment where every participant experiences the comfort of a vacation, while receiving healing, being nourished through delicious food, and nurtured by nature.

WILL MY CELL PHONE WORK AT RATNA LING? IS THERE INTERNET ACCESS?


There is rarely cell phone reception in this area (coastal highway Route 1 to Ratna Ling). If you need to use your cell phone, plan to make your last phone calls well in advance. Every cottage has a telephone that is available for your use and calls within the country are free of charge. The phone in your cottage can also receive calls and your direct line will be displayed on the telephone’s LED screen. Feel free to give this number to family or friends once you have arrived. Complimentary wireless internet is available in every cottage and in common areas. There is no password needed.


WHAT SHOULD I BRING ON MY RETREAT?

Ratna Ling is a drug-free and smoke-free facility, there are no exceptions. There will be a cottage clean-up charge assessed if this policy is violated.

Kini Chang
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist where I practice as a Mental Health Therapist at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, Oakland serving children and families in East Oakland through addressing trauma associated with systemic oppression, community violence, and grief and loss. I also have a private practice in Oakland, CA where I specialize in intergenerational and familial trauma, transitional struggles and life challenges, anxiety and depression, as well parent education and coaching on Adolescent Development and childrearing. I am blessed and honored by the opportunity to facilitate the healing process for each of my clients. With approximately 15 years of experience working with teens, adults, and families, I am dedicated to the holistic healing of the mind, body, and soul. Many people describe me as warm, understanding, and down to earth. I pride myself on integrity, commitment, and passion for the work I do as a therapist. I can’t imagine doing anything different.
