Rest Retreats

Services

Do you feel like even your vacations are so busy they aren’t even relaxing? Where you come back and need a vacation after your vacation?

Just planning a vacation and getting there can be a whirlwind of busy…then we fill up the itinerary with cool things to do while there. Or perhaps you choose not to take time off, out of dread that you’ll never dig yourself out of the inbox after you return? Busy, busy, busy…go, go, go. Does any actual relaxing happen?

Rest is vital for our mental health and inner healing.

Let’s learn how to do that. For real.

When was the last time you rested? Like, really rested. Learn how to rest & restore for vital health & healing.

Rest and Receive™

Overview:

Courageous Being Rest and Receive™ Retreats guide you to intentionally enter and consistently remain in states of restoration and cultivation of your personal power through rest, movement, and nourishment.

From one-day Digital Detox in the comfort of your home, long Leisure Weekend you can do by yourself or with friends locally, or joining us for a guided Destination Retreat, we offer options for any budget or occasion.

Learn how to maintain and return to those practices on-demand, continuing long after the retreat.

It’s not all “dolce far niente” sweet doing nothing time. Some adventure takes place, too!
