Welcome to a transformative retreat where the journey is not about perfection, but about embracing the beautifully imperfect essence of your true self. Nestled in the serene embrace of nature, this retreat is a sanctuary for self-discovery, self-love, and the celebration of authenticity.

Throughout this retreat, experienced guides Cari & Diane will lead you on a profound exploration of your inner landscape, encouraging you to peel away the layers of self-judgment and criticism. Through intuitive art making, introspective workshops, sound healing, gentle yoga sessions, and beautiful ceremonies, you will learn to honor your unique journey and appreciate the beauty that lies within your imperfections.

In the company of like-minded souls, you’ll engage in conversations, sharing stories and insights that unveil the common thread of humanity — the shared experience of imperfection. Through this collective sharing, you’ll discover that your vulnerabilities are not weaknesses but rather the threads that weave the tapestry of your strength.

Nourish your body with wholesome, lovingly prepared meals that not only satisfy your taste buds but also honor your well-being. The serene surroundings provide a canvas for mindful walks, allowing you to reconnect with the rhythm of nature. In the evening, gather around a warm bonfire, where the crackling flames mirror the warmth that arises from embracing your imperfectly perfect self.

Whether you’re seeking a refuge from the pressures of daily life or aiming to deepen your self-awareness, this retreat offers a safe haven where you can learn to love and accept yourself as you are.

Here’s what you can expect:

Hatha Yoga & Restorative Yoga

Enjoy learning about the benefits and joy of yoga. Explore introductory, gentle hatha yoga exercises, breath awareness, and postures that unite the energies of the body, mind, and spirit.

Restorative Yoga enhances the benefits of yoga in completely supported and propped postures which naturally induces deep relaxation and profound therapeutic benefits. During our yoga practices you will learn ways to relieve stress, improve flexibility, enhance concentration, and promote overall well-being.

Sound Healing

Enjoy immersive vibrational experiences that combine different healing sounds and healing instruments. Sound Healing is highly effective at triggering our relaxation response, which counters the many symptoms caused by chronic stress, while helping to balance our whole being.

Wabi Sabi Art Making/Kintsugi

During our art making workshop you will be introduced to the very special process of Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold. This process teaches us that our lives are infused with fragility, setbacks, and unpredictability. The bowl may be broken, but it can be pieced together with more beauty. A wonderful metaphor for life.

Crystal Healing

Learn how to make your own crystal grid for intention-setting and then experience a chakra crystal healing reiki session with a crystal singing bowl sound bath. These practices use crystals and gemstones to promote physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Each stone has unique properties and energies that can interact with the body’s energy fields to restore balance and promote healing.

Empowering Rituals

Engage in ceremonies of self-acceptance and self-love that help you reframe negative beliefs and let go of what no longer serves you. These ceremonies focus on building self-esteem, setting boundaries, and cultivating self-compassion.

Nature Immersion

Nature gives us a perfect example of the Wabi Sabi philosophy, and has a unique way of reminding us of our own imperfect beauty. Reconnect with nature through guided hikes, mindful walks, and outdoor meditation sessions. * Weather permitting.

Healthy Cuisine

Nourish your body with delicious, nutritious meals that not only cater to your physical health but also your emotional well-being. Savor organic, locally sourced, and carefully prepared dishes.

Community and Connection

Share your journey with like-minded individuals, forming supportive bonds that can extend beyond the retreat and provide you with an ongoing network of encouragement.

The “Stressed Out to Blissed Out: Embracing The Perfectly Imperfect” retreat is a safe and judgment-free space where you can rediscover the beauty and worth within yourself. No matter where you are in your self-acceptance journey, whether you’re just starting or seeking to deepen your self-compassion, this retreat is for you. Join us for a transformative experience that will leave you feeling rejuvenated,
