Delight Retreat

What Would It Feel Like To Live With Intention?

How would it feel to make time to rest, nourish, connect, and play a priority, if just for a weekend?

Have you been so busy that you have lost track of where you are going, what you are doing at your work, home or even feel disconnected with your own relationship to your self?

What if everything you did aligned with your values and purpose?

What if you weren’t always so busy doing this or that and made time to fall in love?

What if you experienced less struggle and more joy? What would it be like to know you’re capable of directing your life—and that you’re willing to step up and do this!

This winter, you are in for a Treat.

If any of this resonates and you’re ready to dive into the materials from Delight you’re invited to apply to join me and other like-minded, open-hearted awesome women in the beautiful Virginia countryside as we explore the principles I outline in my book through movement, meditation, self-contemplation, discussion, writing, and art.The Delight Retreat is a weekend of rest, contemplation and inquiry into the areas of our lives that we neglect or are not able to make time for in our daily life; a weekend to walk in nature, tap into your intuition, and BREATHE deeply.
