Our “inner mind” gives us all the reasons why we shouldn’t pick up and go on a retreat, but the heart knows the answer to all of these questions, and it’s YES, we need to do this.
Whether it’s a one day retreat an hour away or a 3-day retreat in the mountains of Montana, a retreat will give you the much-needed time and space to relax and forget all that life throws at you on a daily basis.
From adolescence we berate ourselves with negative thoughts and comments.
“I’m too big.”
“I’m not pretty enough.”
“I’m not smart enough.”
“I’ll never be able to do that.”
It’s time to put up the shield and protect our mind, body and spirit and focus on taking care of our own needs, re-ignite our inner fire, rejuvenate our spirit, come to one with our body, and recharge our inner badass.
A women’s retreat is the best way to come back to the inner peace our heart and mind desire, to be still and feed our soul.
Most of us take a few days here and there to go on “vacation”. But we come home exhausted and need a vacation from our vacation. We all need time to be still, unwind, unplug and disconnect from our normal routine. A time to be completely aware of ourselves and our needs.
What can a retreat do for you?
We change our environment, we change our mind. When you are away from your email, piles on your desk, children, messy closets, and yard work, it frees your mind to think about your life in a totally different way. It creates space in your mind to explore, contemplate, and ponder things on a larger scale.
We have to be quiet in order to listen. We are so busy with so much stimulation around us today, it is rare to have any quiet time. Our still, inside voice of wisdom, (the one we often don’t pay much attention to) comes through loud and clear when we take the time to be quiet.
We all need to be part of something bigger. Being with a group of like-minded people is powerful. Strong bonds are made, even in a weekend when you spend time eating, talking, and practicing together inside the community of a retreat.
We experience something new. Much of the power of going on retreat comes from a willingness to open to the adventure of the complete experience. I can’t tell you how many of my participants have done something for the first time on their retreat—from surfing to horseback riding.
We flow with nature. Most retreats are centered around nature. Whether it is the ocean, a river, or the mountains, when we experience the passionate flow of nature, we are reminded how we can choose to flow in our own lives.
We experience breakthroughs when we take the time to stop. A new perspective is powerful. You take a step outside your “normal” life and things become more clear, transparent, and obvious, all setting you up for a breakthrough in your relationships, your work, or your handstand.
We give ourselves the permission and space not to be “doing” something all the time. There is not a busyness, but a real business in retreating. You learn how much you really are doing for yourself, by doing nothing.
We find our way back to ourselves. We renew, rejuvenate, and recharge with the mental, emotional, and physical rest a retreat provides and remember our true nature.
We experience freedom. You get to choose when to eat, sleep, take a walk by yourself, or join the group hike. When you focus on what you need moment to moment, you experience a sense of peace and contentment with your freedom of choice.
Your Retreat is a gift you give yourself, but it is also a gift to others. After you experience the power of a retreat, you return home more present, attentive, and intentional with yourself and everyone else in your life.
Mission EmpowHER is exactly what you are looking for. We are curating “escapes” that will bring you back to the woman you were meant to be. We will help ignite your fire, nourish your soul with laughter, connect you with yourself and other amazing women, inspire creative outlets, think like there is NO box, elevate your game, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
Let us figure out all the logistics and plan “missions” that will resonate with exactly what you are looking for.
And here’s one last word of advice. Maybe you attending one of our retreats isn’t just for what it will do for you. Maybe it’s for the other woman whose lives need be touched by meeting you. And that right there might be reason enough to go on one of our missions.
