                 acceptance, and resilience leading to a more authentic you


                 RECLAIM your voice, power, and body so you can live on your own terms and fully embody your true self                          while feeling wild, whole, and worthy      

Now is the time to nourish all parts of you!

They asked her, "how did you free yourself?"
She answered, "By embracing my own power."

We know how busy life can feel at times, and we also know that when we take time to deeply nourish ourselves, we feel inspired, and connected again!


And even though there is probably a never ending list of “to do’s” filling up your life right now, we’ve discovered that deep transformations happen when you step outside of the day-to-day routine and step out of your comfort zone just enough to have the space to tune into your heart, body and spirit.

It is time to become a NOURISHED woman.


To immerse yourself in nature away from the hustle and bustle of your day-to-day life.


To enjoy the journey free of distraction so that you can finally take a deep breath and let go.


To unburden yourself in a safe and nurturing environment surrounded by like-minded women who “get” you and are ready to support you on this deeply moving experience.


To un-learn the stories and conditioning that no longer serve you in order to embody the most nourished and powerful version of yourself.


To come home renewed with more power and clarity and ready to embrace your life with a new found sense of ease and freedom.

Hear from Other Women

"Laurita provided a mind, body, and soul experience that allowed me to quiet my mind and open my heart and truly experience the calmness of being one with my mind and body, and of all things I would say this was one of the most powerful moments I had experienced. The bond built within our tribe of women was remarkable.  We laughed, cried, and connected with one another, and it did not take long before these complete strangers felt like family that I had known my whole life.  We experienced a shift together, and because of this will forever be bonded."

" Life gets busy, it's so easy to lose sight of ourselves and what our body and souls need and this retreat is tailor made to help you focus on reviving yourself and connecting with yourself in a way that doesn't seem possible. I am so excited to join this retreat again, and I cannot wait to reconnect with myself as well as to connect with the amazing women embarking on this journey of self-realization and self-love."

"I discovered so much about myself while I was on retreat.  I formed new beliefs and a new level of trust.  Trust in my journey.  Trust in the universe.  Trust that what is, is meant to be.  I had amazing experiences with meditation that I hadn't before.  I met new people who will stay in my heart forever.  We had an incredible tribe!  I came back a better version of me, a more authentic version of me.  And each day I take a moment before I get out of bed to continue my practices that I fully embraced while on retreat.  I will forever and ever be grateful for my experience and to Laurita for leading me there and leading me through."

This retreat isn't about just feeling nourished on the day, it's also about creating the foundations, learning the practices, and supporting your body as you move forward on your path.

It's about reclaiming your voice, power and body as you step more fully into your life and embody all parts of you. 

You will leave with new knowledge and understanding, tools and practices, and new friendships and connections that will feel so nourishing for your heart and soul ~ the type of connection all women yearn for and crave. 

Women thrive in supportive communities, and this is where you will be seen, heard, held, loved, and celebrated for YOU!

Women's Experiences

Caldera group pic_edited.jpg

"I loved hearing women share their vulnerabilities, i love how that made me feel like it’s so normal and how we all have something we’re carrying. I feel like in that space for me it was such an amazing experience to witness that everyone has a journey. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and sit in sisterhood to share and heal and give love to yourself and others. It’s a welcoming warm and safe space to share, learn and grow.  I felt so happy and comfortable. I loved regulating as a group it’s powerful, truly grateful for such an incredible day."

"The retreat was such a beautiful experience. A day filled with a wonderful group of women there to open their hearts, to learn to grow. Well thought out exercises designed to open your eyes, each one having balancing out the next with whatever your body needed. I came in not sure what I was looking for and left feeling like I knew exactly who I was and I what I wanted. Thank you to Laurita and to the amazing women in the group that day! Love you all, my experience wouldn’t be the same with each and everyone of you! I can’t wait for the next one!!"

"The retreat was incredible! I would recommend this day to anyone. Connecting with ladies and sharing our stories in a safe secure space was great. I left feeling enlightened and refreshed. Laurita is a kind compassionate thought provoking leader.  If you are feeling called to this experience just say yes!! We all deserve to be surrounded by supportive woman who lift us up and remind us how incredible we are !!  I have learned so much about myself. Laurita has such an amazing way to help you remember how powerful and special we all are."

"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk is took to blossom"

- Anais Nin
