Santa Cruz Beach House Escape!

July 2nd-4th
Aug 6th-8th

Think of this as a nature get-away, in an atmosphere that enables deep insights and transformative interactions between you and your partner.

Throughout the weekend, there will be a focus on the body/movement, healthy eating/healthy mindset, as well as classes to help you to heal wounds and improve communication with your partner. (See tentative schedule at bottom of page).

We will have some exercises that focus on repairing past hurts, finding ways to get close to each other, and enhancing intimacy. It’s possible your both starving for improved love and intimacy, and communication challenges are often exacerbated by this lack of closeness. Learning how to reconnect and be intimate with each other, the right way can be a real transformative experience.

Put away the cell phone and the buzz of the city. This retreat will take you on a journey to deeply soothe your nervous system, align and rejuvenate your physical body and live from your authentic self!
