Past Trips


No words can describe the feeling of this retreat. It was exactly what I needed... and I didn't even know I needed it! I loved the "group therapy" session in the morning Loved the optional 1:1 coaching with Kathy and/or Mary Beth. I loved the food options and the hot Chef (LOL) Payton's dance and Mary Beth's yoga day "field trip!" were restorative and energizing. The hike was a little disappointing but I understand that I have higher expectations (ie , I was just in the Dolomite Mountains in Italy :-) The closing session was important and lovely, despite honestly being a little wiped out to "share" more, I know some people really needed it. I vacillated between loving all the sharing and conversations ... and needing breaks.... which is typical of my personality. I can "show up and share" and then I like to hide a little. My only suggestion would be an extra day with no organized activity. Sort of a "do what you want" day. It could be optional! People could fly home a day early if they want. But I would have loved a full day there with nothing planned. The retreat felt very whirlwind to me. I definitely was more tired than I would have liked (I was on West Coast time though ..) I get drained by sharing and listening to people share, not in a "bad" way per se but just in an "I'm done" kind of way. Like a vulnerability hangover or an empath's exhaustion. Does that make sense? Thankfully I had my own room to decompress. Overall it was an amazing experience!! You guys are the best!!

What a splendid time spent with 15 women on retreat at this lovely, 3 story home! The retreat consisted of 3 morning group workshops, R & R, yoga, dance/movement nearby at a lovely studio, fantastic nourishment from Chef Michael, walks, hikes, ocean visits and cold plunges, fireside chat, & more. It's just what I needed for a recharge. Well planned & executed. Thank you so much to the facilitators & the participants for enriching my recovery.
