The Embrace Retreat is Back!
We’re back for the 2020 season with a NEW venue and a NEW photography experience – no NEW you required!
In the summer of 2019 we had two sell-out Embrace Retreat Day’s and the feedback was phenomenal. Here’s what one women had to say:
I’ve rarely known such a caring and non-judgmental environment and that it included perfect strangers made it even more of an experience for me. The island location was beautiful as was the quaint space that we shared. I never felt pressure to say or do anything I did not feel comfortable with. Gillian guided the conversations through tough topics with though-provoking grace and ease. Brooke deserves an award for chasing away demons as well as capturing beautiful moments. It was an experience that I’ll ruminate on as I continue to grow. One of the most special things for me was that the physical attributes of each woman was so varied. Body consciousness is not limited by size and it meant a lot to me to participate with such an inclusive group. I recommend this retreat for anyone looking to feel included by others sharing similar life experiences. – Melissa
Want to know what all the fuss is about? Here’s the details…
The Embrace Retreat Day is about coming together as a community of women to acknowledge the challenges we face to have a positive relationship with our bodies. To explore what holds us back so we can break free and develop a new perspective. Through conversations, meditations, exercises and a unique photography experience you’ll have an opportunity to shift the conversation to a place of peace and gratitude for all your body can do!
Your transformative day includes:
- A full day of connection with fabulous women at our private Nanoose venue.
- Coach-led conversations, meditations and exercises to explore your relationship with your body
- A unique perspective changing photography experience
- Fully catered fresh wholesome snacks in the morning and afternoon and a delicious lunch
- Digital copies of our group shot and 3-5 individual shots
- One printed photo keepsake to take home that day!
2020 Embrace Retreat Details:
We are so excited about our 2020 Venue. A spacious private home on an acreage in Nanoose, BC*. Just a short drive from Nanaimo and Parksville! From our secluded hideaway we’ll have the opportunity to unwind, relax and really dig into this powerful conversation with ease, space and grace.
Our photography experience will be completely unlike our 2019 Embrace Retreat Day! But still absolutely perspective shifting. Brooke and I are so excited to make use of our completely private acreage venue and change things up for 2020. New year – new experience!
Two dates to choose from! Choose the one that best serves you!
- Saturday April 18th
- Saturday June 13th
*venue location and details on what to bring will be provided to participants after registration.
I participated last year, would I gain value from coming again?
In short, YES! Not only will the conversations be completely unique (because they never are exactly the same, are they?), but you’ll have the opportunity to deepen and grow even further into this experience. It’s kind of like watching a movie you’ve seen before. Each time you see slightly different things, and deepen your understanding of the characters (in this case you!).
Plus with a completely unique photography experience this year (and a little more comfort since you’ve been in front of the camera before), you’ll have a new opportunity to shine!
Your Retreat Facilitators:
This one-day retreat is a collaboration between Super You (Gillian Goerzen) and Captured Essence Photography (Brooke Hewitt-Morgan). We are both passionate about changing the way women view their bodies and are so excited to share this day with you!
