Overview of retreats

A deep dive into yourself…

Somatic Immersion Retreats honor the innate wisdom of the human body. This journey into the body combines powerful somatic practices and teachings to create a holistic and transformational experience. 

When the body is placed in an environment that supports healing, it will naturally and effortlessly move towards improved holistic wellbeing. As the body heals, the mind follows with an experiences of calm, peace, and relief. The Somatic Immersion Retreat provides that therapeutic environment.

What to expect

Access the innate wisdom of the body…

Each Somatic Immersion Retreat is a multi-day intimate, small group – no more than 20 people – holistic experience carefully curated to provide your body with rejuvenation, invigoration and healing. Through meaningful connection to yourself and others, this retreat allows you to make space for the person you are meant to be.

Depending on the hosting location and venue, your body will be immersed in a nurturing and nourishing environment that can include meditation and breathwork, restorative yoga, sauna infusions, cold exposure, plant medicine ceremonies, wholesome & healthy meals, and group discussions and discourses.

You will leave with a deeper understanding of – and greater connection to – your body, as well as self-care practices that will support you in everyday life. Your body and mind will have received the gift of recovery. Consider this journey as the personal cocoon, from which you will emerge a new Self after the inner work that you do.

Retreat Testimonials

What People are Saying

“Authentic and highly-skilled teachings

“I loved the theoretical thread of stillness that ran throughout the practices and explorations of the workshop. And one thing I really want to honor and acknowledge is  the immense time, effort, pain and practice that would have been necessary to cultivate the ability to facilitate and guide such a workshop; and to do it so beautifully. My sincerest respect and gratitude…”

Kate B., Cantebury, NZ

“I cannot recommend this retreat enough… it will change your life!”

“I signed up with the hopes of healing and left with so much more: personal growth, massive shifts in every level of life as I knew it, true community, friendship, sisterhood, and a clear knowing of not only where I want to go and what I want to do, but most importantly, direction with the work I can do to connect meaningfully and lastingly to this short blink of a lifetime.

Clara H., Vancouver, Canada

“I’ve been on many retreats, but this one was truly magic.”

I do actually feel that my life was changed as a direct result of participating in this retreat. I went in feeling afraid, alone, and quite frankly, lost. I left with my heart opened and full of hope, found a group of people who are now my people, and I remain filled with awe and inspiration, and so much care from the facilitation team (which was the cherry on top). With so much gratitude.”

Barb V., Alberta, Canada

“This experience is a gift I won’t forget”

The Somatic Immersion Retreat was magical. I am struggling to find the right words to describe it. The sense of agency one develops after being immersed in practices that connect you to the wisdom of the body, is a life-long gift. The setting, team, food and accommodations were incredible. I came home with the tools I need to continue the work not only for myself, but my clients as well.

Jenny W., Alberta, Canada

A knowledgeable, kind and compassionate facilitation team

“The Somatic Immersion Retreat was a profoundly full experience that stretched, deepened and connected me to the innate wisdom of body and psyche. Having done many retreats in the past, this one stands out due to ease of flow, somatic experiences were placed and structured in a way that gently expanded and deepened awareness into our inner world.

Paul T., Auckland, New Zealand

“The facilitators created an environment of true community…” 

“The first day of the retreat I showed up with high anxiety and a fear I would not belong. The facilitators were all so welcoming, kind, understanding, supportive and loving! I felt part of a community full of love from the moment I arrived. Absolutely an amazing experience. I left with hope and the tools to continue the process of authentic self love.”

Rachelle P., Seattle, USA

“This retreat has shifted my perspective on life to a more positive one..” 

“This retreat changed my life. I never felt judged or isolated and I look forward to challenging my old habits knowing that I have these people and the memories of that weekend. The insights I gained during the weekend have made me a better person, mother and friend. It has created a ripple effect in the lives around me and I’ll be forever grateful.”

Megan, M., Buenos Aires, Argentina

“A turning point in my life”

So many shifts and so much letting go of limiting beliefs and things I’d felt the need to try and control. I am beyond excited for all that is to come. I couldn’t have imagined that, in a few short days, so much transformation could occur for me. I will be eternally grateful and am forever changed. Words aren’t enough. I end by saying THANK YOU! from the depths of my Being.”

Teri P., United Kingdom

Every day I learned new & helpful therapeutic tools

I set my intentions for this retreat with absolutely no idea of the magic that would unfold. In such a short time we were exposed to so many different modalities and shown so much support and holding from the team. I arrived with a great deal of fear and anxiety.  When it came time to leave, I was astonished at how much lighter I felt in my mind, heart and body.

Rose W., Los Angeles, CA

“I left feeling so loved, supported, and a better understanding of who I am…”

“I arrived not really knowing what to expect, full of anxiety and fairly nervous in the days leading up to the retreat. I left feeling so loved, supported and with a better understanding of who I am, who I want to be, and what tools I need to get to that place. With an added bonus of incredible friends who continue to support me. I’m a better mom, wife, friend; and better at loving myself.”

Sarah M., Calgary, Canada
