The Art of Self Care Retreat

Stress and our go-go-go culture reduce our ability to be productive and create an undertone of ‘not good enough’ in our lives. We expect to be able to do it all – successful career, generous family care-giver, fit and beautiful, joyful and happy. Our high expectations of ourselves combined with the daily stresses of our world can leave us feeling fatigued and depressed. In this weekend retreat we take a pause and learn to take care of ourselves and invite vitality, productivity, confidence and joy back into our lives.

I recommend Anna and her practice with my whole heart to anyone I know who is experiencing a lack of well being on any scale.” – Melina, outdoor adventurer and writer, NC
