Redefine what it means to care for yourself

 Restore Retreat

Wednesday, September 26th - Sunday, September 30th

Press pause on your life as you know it.

Hike in the woods and on the beach, surrounded by gorgeous nature for miles in every direction.

Nourish your body with delicious organic meals (and desserts!) prepared just for you.

Remind yourself that your needs are not a burden, but a compass guiding you.

Get your hands messy as you ignite your creative spirit.

Laugh late in the night with your head tossed back as you feel the reverberations deep in your belly.

The Restore Retreat is for women hell bent on reclaiming their lives with tender sustainability and wild wonder.

Laughter is restorative. Feeling like yourself (again or for the first time) is restorative. Connecting to nature is restorative. These are our objectives.

This is your invitation to restore your energy reserves. This gathering is about filling up your well so that you can return to your life reinvigorated and replenished.

I'm not sure that I knew this consciously beforehand, but it turns out that I was desperate for connection. I would describe the weekend as transformative healing connection. THE FOOD WAS SO AMAZING. I want to share my sincerest gratitude. You truly did a marvelous job. - Evan Leah Quinn

The Location

We will be gathering together from Wednesday, September 26th - Sunday, September 30th in a beautiful private home in the woods of Truro, Massachusetts.

Truro itself is stunning, with vast beaches and abundant nature. Though this is a pretty hot tourist spot during the summer months, the Fall is a cozy and quiet time - perfect for wandering down the beach and reveling in the natural surroundings.

During the retreat, this gorgeous setting will be our home base as we explore coming home to ourselves, meeting our needs, and belonging - both to ourselves and to the community of women that gather in our circle.

Restorative. Inspiring. Energizing. Honestly, this retreat was the fucking BOMB! Hands down. Incredible treats and nurturing balanced with the hardcore self work. I LOVED it. It was awesome, perfect, loving, wholesome, and delicious! - Marisa D.

Retreat Structure

Secret goodies & extras...

Magical gifts. Cozy beds. Energy work. Art supplies for days. Late night giggling. Moving your limbs in a way that feels really good. Mouthwatering meals cooked just for you. Ample coaching and hugging time with Mara. Beach walks. Collaging. Naps. Heart-opening conversations.

And best of all - you won't have to lift a finger.

Being around Mara's energy, and the other ladies' energy, caused a shift in me. I felt the most myself that I have in literally years. I felt connected to my power and my truth in a way that I haven't felt before. I am continually trying to draw back to how I felt during the weekend; I want to be able to continue to access that place, to live more in that space every day. - J.

This retreat is for you, if...

You are aching for the respite and radiant leisure of having all of your needs met for the weekend... so that you can focus on taking sweet care of yourself.

You have been yearning to stop scrolling through you Facebook feed and start engaging in real conversations, with real, amazing women like yourself.

You are are hungry to nourish your needs for creativity and celebration.

You are ready to begin living with heart, intention, and unshakable self-worth.

I think Mara is the loveliest, wisest, most fun, tenderhearted and powerful how-ever-old/young-you-are-in-years being I know. Truly. And a gifted leader/teacher/practitioner. If you have the opportunity to spend time with Mara on retreat, do not hesitate. This is lovely, life changing, heart-opening stuff. Just go. - Christa G.
