About the event

Are you ready to embrace self-confidence, amplify your authentic voice, and finally let your light lead the way?

Now is the time to purposefully weave your web of empowerment and embark on a transformative adventure towards honoring your true self in the world.

Join us for carefully curated activities infused with mindfulness, parts discovery, collaborations with nature, creative reflection, and many peaceful pauses. This guided experiential retreat is founded in IFS and nature-based therapies.


Together, we will embody a direct relationship with personal power, an ongoing process to:

  • Gain trust with your inner resources and abilities
  • Show up more authentically, fostering genuine connections inside and out
  • Expand your capacity to navigate through life’s ups and downs with emotional strength
  • And make more informed decisions, claiming the driver’s seat of your life!

A Journey of Inner Trust and Balance integrates Internal Family Systems (IFS) and nature-based therapies.

IFS is a therapeutic model with a relational approach to promote social and emotional healing from the inside-out. Discover differing parts of yourself each with its own perspective, emotions, and intentions. Understand their roles and relational dynamics in a way that empowers inner trust and an invitation to greater harmony and balance.
