You will pay this directly to the driver as a separate cost. It is $100 one way and $100 back which is a total of $200 for each person.

“Leading up to this retreat I knew I was being called to heal. I was nervous, excited, a little scared. Scared of myself, my traumas, the unknown.
I knew I would be facing discomfort in the midst of healing but the goal was to heal at all costs. So I booked what was to be the greatest journey of my life to date…
This bespoke retreat was perfectly curated to empower each individual to heal themselves using movement, introspection, nutrition and plant medicine as modalities.
The setting could not be more idyllic, an Oasis in the Mountains, surrounded by the beauty of nature, completely removed from “the matrix”. The facilitators and animals that held space for us made me feel safe, heard and empowered.
Lily built our confidence, knowledge and strength in her workshops as we dove deeper into understanding our nervous system, how to move our bodies in order to change our thoughts and reactions and how to figure out what it is our bodies need in each moment in order to feel safe and comfortable to facilitate growth. Every morning we prepared our minds and bodies with yoga in the morning sun, stretching our muscles and our consciousness. Learning to be present and at home in ourselves.
Autumn nourished us with whole and healthy food from the land. Picking fruit and vegetables around the area and preparing them to remedy each individuals needs. Aiding our bodies and minds in the healing process. She was not only a constant source of nurturing with her food, but a fountain of knowledge when it came to understanding how your body works and what we can nourish ourselves with in order to heal from the inside, out.
Frantzces honored our healing process by providing us with the tools and the knowledge to comfort and heal our inner child. Understanding what triggers my inner child and listening to what she needs in order to release traumas was a key part of my journey to healing. This journey wouldn’t have been possible without the tools I learned through Frantzces. I was able to self-soothe through some of the hardest lessons throughout this retreat and will continue to grow with this skill set.
Taheera showed us how to be Warriors and Goddesses by truly embodying those spirits. She taught me how to be strong, how to stay balanced, how to release with grace, love fiercely and grow proudly. I have never felt more safe, loved, protected and held by a group of people as I did at this retreat.
The most defining lesson I took away from this retreat is just how simple and accessible all these tools and lessons are. We have everything within us. Wherever we go, we take ourselves with us. We are home. Express gratitude and love regularly and the rest will follow.
I have noticed a major shift in myself since the retreat. I find myself a lot more calm and grounded. I feel I am able to handle anything that comes my way, no matter how difficult it may be. I feel like I am armored with tools and knowledge. I plan to embody this and grow with it for as long as it serves me.
This retreat was intricately created to facilitate self growth and healing, a gift to myself to expand my consciousness through discomfort as well as nurturing.
From the facilitators and their workshops, the accommodation, the mystical landscape, getting in touch with nature and taking it all the way back to basics. I feel like I was stripped down to my raw, most authentic self and was allowed to grow in complete synchronicity to nature and the vibration inside of me, allowing my outer and inner worlds to merge as one. Whole.
For anyone considering a retreat like this, come as you are. With an open mind and a desire to heal. Step into discomfort in order to bloom and remember the soul you already are. This is the greatest investment you can give yourself.
I can not express enough gratitude to the beautiful souls who created this safe container and held space for us to explore ourselves, the warriors that stood beside me as I went through the most powerful shift in my consciousness. Thank you, thank you, thank you.” ~Nicole
