January 26-29, 2017
Sometimes adult life can be overwhelming. Big problems to solve, world crises to deal with, relationship stresses that trigger big emotional reactions. In the middle of all the grown-up responsibility and hustle, we can overlook the importance of maintaining a strong and loving connection with our inner child: that part of us that knows how to dream big, experiences fear and loss, and still yearns to play.
Come spend an entire weekend reconnecting with the innocence and intuitive wisdom of your inner child. Open to the messages you may not be able to hear in the driving pace of your usual world. Come pamper and love on that little girl in a safe space, surrounded by the beautiful countryside of rural Virginia, with two experienced mentors and guides. We will hold your hand throughout the entire weekend, showing you ways to hold your inner child close and listen deeply.
Your inner child retreat experience includes:
- 8 delicious vegetarian meals
- 7 yoga sessions (including yoga nidra)
- 4 guided meditations
- 24-hour guided silence experience
- Inner Child Essential Oil Blend
- Daily art, journaling, and other activities design to help you connect deeply with your inner child
Some benefits you may experience as a result of attending this retreat:
- Increased physical, emotional, mental energy
- More fulfilling and loving relationships
- Start working through your to-do list
- Start saying “no” without guilt
- Less anger, more joy
- More honest, open communication
- Start expressing your true feelings

Past Retreat Participants Say
Michelle’s expertise in bringing together varied activities, personal options, and an atmosphere of gentleness and acceptance to take care of and examine the self is a vital benefit. — Denise G
My Crossfit colleagues were teasing me about the concept of getting together with a group of women to be quiet! They thought this concept simply didn’t make any sense. I tried to explain that the silent retreat was Crossfit for the mind. I can certainly work out at home, but when I come together with a group at the gym I am much stronger and I can achieve more. I believe the same dynamic applies when pursuing spiritual goals. In our fast-paced world with its constant bombardment of sound bites, how often do we set aside time to simply unplug, be quiet and reflect? Michelle did an excellent job of giving individuals the opportunity of participating in guided activities for reflection or simply allowing individuals to do what was best for them. If you are looking for a chance to recharge and reflect, I highly recommend a retreat with Michelle. You will be glad you went! — Toni M
