Our world today is so full, full of opportunities, choices, expectations, responsibilities and commitments, and noise, all of which compete for our time and attention, which can leave you really overwhelmed. I understand the feeling that you need to be in two places at once, or even three, makes priorities difficult. Some days it seems no matter who you are serving, your job, family, friends or yourself, that you are taking valuable time and energy away from something else. It causes stress, and if you are like me, you feel guilty if you can’t handle it. You don’t talk about it, you hide it, under the guise of I’m Fine. Isn’t it time for a Joyful Journeys Retreat?
But what is the long-term cost of this? I don’t think we can afford it. As Steve Jobs said,
The most expensive bed is the hospital bed.
What is it worth to find the fun and adventure in your life?
Wouldn’t you love to drop years of stress from your face and your body, laugh, be pampered, release worries and remember your Joy? You can at a Joyful Journeys Retreat!
Remember that delicious feeling of being completely in the moment and at ease, and living from a place of conscious, intentional creation? This is what all of today’s wise women want, and strive for, but are we achieving it? The reality is we are not, and it causes us stress. This pressure is multiplied by guilt, fear, being in a hurry, and having that inner self-critic saying, you can do better, you can do this, or worse, what’s wrong with you?
The disappointing result is that we get farther away from our soul desire to serve with compassion, creativity and intuition. Many women find their most productive, healthy and creative years shut down by perceived rejection. They feel invisible, unattractive, unappreciated, and have very few conversations that share acknowledgment of their unique gifts and deeply inspired connection.
Today’s Wise Woman knows this is a problem that you need to solve. It steals your moments of joy and the gift of optimism about the future.
Get Off the Grid, Go off the Path and Out of this World!
I offer Wise Woman Adventure retreats, for small groups of women, (and sometimes men) who can resonate with this type of adventure. I provide accommodations from private cabanas just steps from the beach to deluxe villas with an in-home wait staff. The guarantee is that privacy is a new luxury. Have you ever been on a beach under the full moon, completely alone? No light pollution, just the peace and beauty of nature? Our next Joyful Journeys retreat, on the Summer Solstice, offers just that.
The turning point for me came about ten years ago. I found myself in what I would call a tropical paradise. It was quite by accident, but it was no coincidence. I fell in love with the beauty, the simplicity, and the people.
This remote paradise came to me at a time when I was burnt out, sick, stressed from work, child rearing and caring for relatives. I was so caught up in the rat race; I didn’t even realize how uncomfortable and unsustainable my energy system had become. My subconscious mind must have taken over, because, I kept telling myself I was okay.
After a few days, listening to the ocean, eating healthy food, and breathing the sea air, I came back to life. I remembered what it felt like to be free and have fun. I felt healthy, happy and if not young, I was content, with my body and my life. I was convinced that an adventure getaway was life changing. It was joy, and it helped me get my priorities straight. I realized that I had found a joyful journeys retreat.
Joyful Journeys Retreat
I got rid of my stressful retail business. I trained in Holistic stress management techniques, started my Energy Medicine practice and developed my Intentional Meditation program to teach as an online class.
But, it wasn’t enough to talk about stress management to my clients from my office in Houston. I wanted them to experience the freedom of getting off the grid and having an adventure that would change their lives the way mine was changed. Each Joyful Journeys retreat is unique, but they all share some of the same benefits.
- Peace and Tranquility at one of the world’s most untouched beaches.
- International Cuisine prepared for you by a 5 Star Chef
- Interactive Holistic Stress Management curriculum daily
- A relaxed curriculum, with a daily morning meditation, art projects
- Group interactive discussions and sightseeing of the area.
Imagine the beauty of a private beach with a full moon, ocean breeze and blessed silence. You will let go, and let in some new ideas, to heal, refocus, and refresh.
