Your People

We, Monica, Hannah and Carmen, are three sisters, friends and natural soul connectors with a lifetime of experience in service to others. Together, we have spent over 10 years exploring, learning, training, excavating, planting, and expanding.  This retreat was born out of knowing that every soul has a desire to be loved, nurtured and seen. That’s why we have distilled down simple and approachable methods of self-love and self-care. We want to connect you to your most loved, authentic, and radiant self.  We have taken care of all the little details to make your experience effortless, purposeful, and heartfelt. Our promise to you: make this weekend feel like this is the best gift you could have given yourself.  Come join us sister.

“You are worth the quiet moment. You are worth the deeper breath. You are worth the the time it takes to slow down, be still and rest.” -mhn  


Your Exchange

Space is very limited and that is intentional. We want to make sure that each one of you is getting personal attention and care. This retreat is a place of intimacy and connection.

8 spots max.

We know that sharing a room or coming alone can be a bit intimidating. If so, grab your sister, your mom or ask a friend to come. If you are looking for new connections, use this as an opportunity for bravery and to be open to share a room with a soon to be friend.  We believe Magic truly happens when women come together in sisterhood to share these experiences.  Any way you decide to join, we encourage you to take the leap if you are feeling the call.

There will be plenty of personal time for whatever your heart is craving. Let this weekend be your journey of personal growth and transformation.
