Join us for a Coalesce Discovery Retreat with Marni Henderson, certified Life Reentry® Practitioner and Whole Health Coach™!
This retreat includes hope, laughter, tears, passion, creativity and heart connection!
Who: The adventurous soul willing to lean into the fullness of life. When heartache, loss and grief reveal themselves on our life journey, it can leave us feeling hopeless, broken and without purpose. However, we can create new life in the present when we honor our tenderness and lean into the wisdom of our heart. Retreat attendees may come alone or bring a close friend or loved one. We honor all forms of loss, we don’t define it.
What: Travel offers a unique experience and a chance to see life with new lenses. We will start the week with self-inquiry by understanding how our heart and mind communicate. How do the moments of grief and loss affect our overall health and way of coping? Daily exercises will prompt our “inner guide” as we begin to honor our courageous heart. Grief cleanses, journaling and yoga will all offer tools and an opportunity to embrace our whole self. As we discover how our unique patterns create our present, we can then begin to embrace new awareness as we take action to reenter life filled with hope, passion, adventure and joyful purpose. Finally, we will weave all the pieces together by creating our personal manifesto and celebrate our wholehearted self while exploring Mayan Caves! Let the magic begin!
- HEART CONNECTION: Our hearts yearn to be loved and love others. Sharing time in a rural primary school gives us a chance to extend our hand and open our hearts. We spend three afternoons engaging with the local Belize culture by volunteering in a rural primary school supporting English language skills.
- REPLENISH RELAX REJUVENATE: Sail and snorkel on the crystal clear Caribbean waters. We will join the best tour in the area as we hop on the catamaran, put on our snorkel gear, and swim alongside the beautiful sea animals in the crystal clear Caribbean Sea. Replenish your body with fresh, local food! There is a massage waiting for you or spend the morning visiting the sweet shops. Hammocks are plentiful to take a delicious sunset nap or find solitude in a kayak exploring the mangroves. The ocean and sunshine often become our best healing medicine!
- EXPAND OUR AWARENESS: With local experts as our guides, we will explore history first hand inside the world-renowned Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave. Enjoy an intimate hands-on cooking class with a local chef, relish in a dynamic, Garifuna guest speaker introducing the uniqueness of Belize or join a Maya woman as you learn about her culture and make Maya arts and crafts.
