The Embrace Retreat is back!
Are you ready find a more peaceful, neutral, possibly even celebratory relationship with your body? The Embrace Experience is a unique group coaching and photography experience that has been called “truly transformational.” If you’re looking to level up your body acceptance and love, consider joining us for this one-of-a-kind experience.
Last year due to restrictions we weren’t able to meet in person in the same way as before (hello pandemic pivot!). So we held zoom calls to explore the big ideas and gathered (safely distanced) for the photo shoot. It was pretty great given the circumstances and the overwhelming feedback was that our participants enjoyed having some time to process the big ideas we were discussing between our 3 weekly sessions! And so…much like all post-pandemic life, we’re learning from our experience to make our new-normal even better!
Here’s how the Embrace Retreat version 3.0 works!
Our retreat will happen over two magical evenings.
On our first gathering (can I get a hurray?!) we’re going to connect as women, and have some real talk about the struggle to love the skin we’re in, and how we can explore a greater sense of peace, neutrality, and possibly even celebration of our bodies. Then, we’ll have an EPIC photo shoot as the sun sets.
Then, one week later we’ll gather again. We will have the opportunity to gather one more time as a community to see the photography and have a very special photography reveal surrounded by our Embrace Community. It’s an incredibly moving experience.
About the Photography Experience
The Embrace photography experience always has a theme. This year we’re returning to black bathing suits. But there’s a twist, one we think will be really transformative. There will be an opportunity to have individual photos, as well as small group (especially if you come with someone special), and if everyone is comfortable a few photos as a larger Embrace Community. The photography experience is about being seen as you are. Being celebrated as you are. And you – seeing you with a lens of love, appreciation and (maybe even) celebration.
The investment for the Embrace Experience is $375. This includes:
- 2 powerful group gatherings
- A delicious picnic-style dinner at the beach on our first night together.
- The Embrace Photography Experience (individual + group).
- 3-5 digital images you can download, plus group shots.
- A very special commemorative gift (mailed after the Embrace Experience, because snail mail is fun!)
Dates + Details:
The Embrace Retreat 3.0 will occur over two nights: Thursday August 19th from 5-8:30pm and Thursday August 26th from 6-8pm. The location (in the South Nanaimo region) will be revealed only to those registered for privacy.
Registration is CLOSED!
We’ll be BACK next summer and look forward to Embracing with you then! To be the first to know when registration opens, join our waitlist!
I participated previously, 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!
And to say thank you for being part of our greater Embrace Community we’d like to offer you a $100 grad credit! You should have an email in your inbox…. (if your email has changed, be sure to contact Brooke or me!).
