Introducing the Embrace Experience!

We’ve taken almost everything we LOVE about our one-day Embrace Retreat and transformed it into a month-long experience designed to give you greater clarity, connection and body gratitude. And we’re SO excited about it!

Here’s our plan so we can still offer this phenomenal “retreat” experience and maintain physical distance!

  • We will be moving the discussion topics covered in our 1-day event to 3 evening calls. The benefit of this is you’ll have more opportunity to digest and process what we discussed between sessions. Which means you can ask follow up questions and dive a little deeper than what we can in the retreat format. 
  • Between these Zoom based Group sessions we will connect via our Facebook Group for ongoing conversation (optional – we recognize not everyone is on Facebook).
  • We will meet as a group for a photo shoot, with consideration given to maintaining physical distance. This means the group size is limited to 10 participants and the “group” shots will be slightly different (and super awesome). Each woman will also have an individual shoot with the distanced support of every woman in the group. This is an extremely powerful component of the experience and we’re so thrilled we can do this. This evening photo shoot will also include a physically distanced “debrief” and opportunity to reflect upon the experience. 
  • In addition to the group sessions via Zoom and the group photography experience, each woman will also receive a 30-minute coaching call with Gillian to reflect on the experience, dive deeper into one of the topics, or help break through a sticky spot they’ve identified through our group conversations. These sessions will be done by appointment and will be booked based on your schedule. 
  • We will mail you a very special commemorative gift (because snail mail is fun!)


 We’re doing ALL of this (value of $379) for the exact same price of $249.

Why? Because we appreciate your flexibility. Because we get that times are tough. And because we want to keep the energy of this event alive (now more than ever we need to embrace the amazing, healthy, capable bodies we’ve got!).


Embrace Experience dates:

  • Zoom Call 1: July 13 @7-9pm
  • Zoom Call 2: July 20 @7-8pm
  • LIVE Outdoor Group Photo Shoot Experience: Saturday July 25 @6pm-9pm
  • Zoom Call 3: July 27 @7-9pm 


Do you want to join us? Limited spaces available!

To ensure we’re honouring physical distancing, we’re capping this group experience at 10 women. If you’d like to join the conversation and find ways to embrace your awesome body (right now). Click the link and give this gift to YOU right now.

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!



What participants had to say about their experience last summer:

What a powerful day. Something beautiful happens when women come together in love and support of each other. We were a group of strangers but Gillian and Brooke bonded us in such a beautiful way. To say the photography experience was amazing feels trite. It was inspiring, it was fun, it was empowering. Brooke has a way of making you feel so comfortable, and her gift behind the lens led to so many gorgeous photos. The conversation Gillian facilitated was powerful and real. We have work to do, as women, to re claim our place in the world. And Gillian and Brooke are making that work a little easier by building safe, open communities of women. Much love and respect to you both.

I went into this day with great trepidation, but I am SO GLAD I went. It was a really powerful day looking at preconceived notions about how I felt about my body and the way I show up in the world. It was a powerful day confronting some stories I’ve had and the way I have let them limit me, or censor me, hold me back from sharing myself authentically and without reservations. The photo experience captured me with such ease and being so fully in the moment that it was really profound. I am excited for the impact this experience will have on my life moving forward.

What a day that was spent at the Embrace Retreat. Women coming together to support and reflect. This world needs to hear this and change their mind on body positivity. The photo shoot was spectacular and was all about supporting each other and feeling great about ourselves.

If you are considering joining this retreat STOP and sign up!!!! It was very well thought out and the content was impressive and empowering. The food… Delish! Very worth the price paid. I was so very happy to be a part of the wonderful group of diverse women. The personality’s just worked. I felt safe and respected. I give huge compliments to Gillian and Brooke for this collaboration. Excellent!!!

What an incredible day, listening, learning and sharing. There is such power in a group! Gillian and Brooke were amazing at facilitating conversations with respect and kindness. I recommend this retreat to anyone wanting to get closer to body peace.

I found the embrace retreat to be a real eye opener and an AMAZING experience ! I felt safe and guided, was able to really express myself without any anxiety or fear. The process of listening to other women and their experiences and thoughts reminded me that I am not alone in how I feel, the fears I have and that I DO have the ability to change the story I tell myself and to help others do that as well. After a couple of weeks I am still feeling the love and gratitude that I felt that day and am feeling more comfortable in my own skin – it was and continues to be a strong life changing force. I soooo look forward to more retreats, more growth, more self love and more connection with strong badass women in all phases of their life and growth! The connection, realness and truth I felt filled my soul with a peace I have not felt in a long time – I saw a glimpse of “me” that has been missing!


We love them! Feel free to email either of us directly! You can contact Gillian here, or Brooke here.
