Hey Chick!
We see you...
Pushing yourself harder, expanding your world but
not getting the results you desire.
We hear you...
Proclaiming that each year will be different than last
but complaining that it's more of the same.
We know you...
Are capable of achieving more, being your best,
and sharing your gifts with the world,

And YOU are the reason why we created the
Emerging You Self-Care Retreat in Dominican Republic!

This retreat is for women only


During Labor Day weekend (August 31st - September 3rd)  experience a 4-day, 3-night rejuvenation retreat, designed to expand your capacity for greatness by unlocking limited beliefs and unfruitful habits that have kept you stuck (with an extra night for Diamond packages!). The Emerging You Retreat will help you to awaken a deeper authentic self-love, gain clarity on the next phase of your life’s journey, and discover just how much you’re truly capable of. Every workshop is an interactive experience to challenge your comfort zone and provoke inner expansion.

We’ll also venture out on the beautiful island to participate in a cultural excursion that enhances the overall development experience! Enjoy our private, beautiful tropical accommodations, YOUR OWN cottage-style room, daily yoga, fresh organic foods, an incredible community with other awesome, mindful, and adventurous women, and so much more!


    What you will gain!

    • Awareness around personal beliefs and thought-life
    • A renewed sense of strength and focus
    • A deeper connection to self, God + other amazing women
    • Exploring and expanding personal boundaries
    • A new level of clarity to execute your dreams
    • Deep relaxation through restorative yoga, breathing, and meditative practices
    • Rejuvenation from the stressors of life and the creation of healthy habits for the body and mind

    Dominican Republic

    The property is located on a hilltop in La Guázuma, close to the quaint fishing village of Las Galeras on the Samaná peninsula. Samaná is usually rated as the most attractive region in the Dominican Republic with endless groves of palm trees and pristine deserted beaches.

    Revel in the beauty of nature, meditate as the sun rises, walk white sand beaches, and make real connections to yourself, your body and to others. This getaway is all about finding the joy in looking within and falling in love with yourself and life again. When all the tools are in place and the scenery is beautifully inspiring, healing is taken to a whole new level.
    You'll awaken each day to the sights and sounds of the ocean. You will enjoy fabulous chef cooked meals, practice yoga, experience transformational workshop and, of course, be surrounded by a supportive community. This is your transformation vacation, a unique, once in a lifetime experience, and a completely enriching retreat.
