Today I share with you some news that is both exciting and leaves me heavy-hearted. For the foreseeable future, I plan to step away from hosting retreats.
It's been an incredible journey. One I'm so thankful so many of you have joined me on. So much magic has come to me as a result of meeting you, and getting to hold space for your healing and breakthroughs.
And yet, on my last personal retreat, the message was beyond clear: I am ready to move towards quieter, more inward work for now. You know from reading my book, I'm all about following the softly whispered messages that come to you on retreat.
It's time for me to take some of my own advice.
I am also a big fan of supporting feminine values in a world that overvalues the masculine ones.
This means honoring cycles. Not just pushing through to stay on a linear course for our entire lives because culture says we should. It means listening to intuition and actually choosing it, despite what others might think is best for you.
Thank you for your support as I choose this for myself.
I'm not entirely sure what the next chapter holds. But I'm getting more comfortable resting in the in-between and trusting that, to live in integrity, I have to follow this felt knowing.
If hosting these retreats with you has taught me anything, it's that I can trust that inner compass and it will take me to incredible and true places, both inside and out.
What this means for you:
This means the next AWAKEN in Nosara, Costa Rica this February 11-18, 2023 will be my last. It's a special retreat to me because it's where my journey started more than 7 years ago. If you've been curious about this retreat or would love to come again, I invite you to join me for this final, celebratory romp in the Nosaran jungle. It's pure magic. And this is the year. You can learn more about it HERE.
I will host one more retreat next October (DREAM) and you can read more about it HERE.
I will still take on select private retreat clients. If you have your own group (personal, business, etc.) and would like a meaningful retreat for your peeps, please reach out to see if we're a fit.
I'm delighted to maintain my Wellness WITHIN blog that I love so dang much (that's this email). Inquiries around how to live well will always be a focus for me, and I love sharing what I find with you. Whether you've been with me for years or are brand new here, I'm humbled by your readership.
I'm delighted to still host one-on-one Soul Sessions to existing, and new clients as space allows.
So there you have it.
It's been a hell of a ride. It would be my honor to host you in magic, celebration, healing and inspiration one last time if you feel pulled to join a retreat.
My mission when starting years ago was to put retreating on the map as a valuable practice of self-care. I wanted to to shout from the rooftops that regular retreating could be used as a proactive mental health tool in a world that only wants to throw pills at us and share horrifying mental health statistics. My book aimed to clarify this, and many of you have seen in your own lives how retreating can keep you mentally and emotionally well.
Thank you for supporting my mission.
Thank you for all the ways you've shown up for me and shared yourself, your time, and your energy. This has been a mind-blowingly meaningful chapter of my life. And I couldn't have done it without you.
May we meet on retreat. And either way, I'm so very thankful for our connection. To your mental and emotional wellbeing.
With boundless love,
