We’ve found that by offering workshops in a retreat setting, folks are able to be working and learning and playing and growing and resting all at the same time.

A big part of the learning experience is practicing what is being taught. In a retreat setting, folks can team up and hold private sessions together as they wish, while still being in a supervised environment.


More session time is available when we’re all staying together.

If/when you identify something that you’d like to address, get a session right away.

Retreats are intended to be more informal. We can dress casually, set our own hours for work and play, eat as a group or whenever we wish, share meals pot-luck style or bring whatever meets our individual needs.







Retreats provide the opportunity for unique bonding experiences. There’s also plenty of time for relaxation and enjoying the great outdoors, whether swimming, hiking, site seeing, or gathering around a campfire.

What better way to learn, rest and play?

The formal structure of the Traumatic Incident Reduction Workshop in a conference room setting provided the perfect foundation to build upon. The Life Stress Reduction and Expanded Application Retreats were phenomenal … educational, fun and reFRESHing! Spending the entire four day training, including lodging, meals and casual time with a group of female facilitators fed my soul.  I found it to be the perfect mix of training time, open discussion, experiential use of techniques and plenty of time to use as we wished.  I especially liked the availability of private sessions during our down time. I highly recommend this training to anyone interested in professional development as well as personal growth and exploration.
