“Madly in Love with Me” Women’s Retreat

Event Details

Event Name: “Madly in Love with Me” Women’s Retreat

Event Date: November 25, 2017 - December 2, 2017

Spend a week with like minded women learning about and cultivating more self-love in your life! Get to know yourself, accept yourself, trust yourself, honor yourself and deliberately live a magnificently fulfilling life!

Retreat Features


Loving ourselves teaches us that we have a choice in life – always. Decisions aren’t made based on fears. Life doesn’t just play out wherever the pieces happen to fall. We learn to do what we love in life instead of maintaining a level of submissiveness to ‘fate’.

Loving ourselves teaches us to be soft on the outside and strong on the inside – which is the opposite of what most of us have spent cultivating in our lives. A soft exterior means there’s a continuous flow of life in and out – you can give more freely and you can receive more freely. A strong interior means  you’re not afraid to fall and when you inevitably do,  you know you’ll get back up.

Join me in this one week retreat as we embark upon a journey of self-discovery and self-love! Deepen your relationship with yourself; your connection with yourself; your trust in yourself. Realize that you have a choice in this life and that your life can indeed be anything you want it to be. Building a foundation of love within yourself will have an impact in every area of your life! You’ll feel better, you’ll get the jobs you want, you’ll look better, you’ll have more money and your relationships will improve. It all starts with self love.

What to expect 

Being in nature is like a window into our soul.  It can feel like a peak into another dimension.  Imagine waking up every morning to the tropical sounds of the rainforest. Lush green surrounds you. Birds call to you. Monkeys play with you.

Expect to feel relaxed, to experience your mind quieting down and to feel closer to yourself.

Daily we will come together and explore concepts of self love and how we can support ourselves and our lives more successfully.  Each workshop will focus on a different aspect of the self-love paradox, with both tools to implement immediately and take-homes to deepen it’s effectiveness in your life. Our sessions will start with a centering meditation and end with the opportunity to share and ask any questions.

There will be plenty of down-time in which you have the choice to either leave the resort and explore the nearby town, head to the beach for a surfing lesson, or stay nestled in the cozy sounds of the jungle, relaxing by the pool and letting the days session soak into you. Feel free to bring a personal project and use the atmosphere that self-love fosters to break past whatever may have been holding you back. A writing project, a business project, a website; whatever you have been wanting to complete and for whatever reason have not!

About Rachael

Life is meant to be fun! I believe that wholeheartedly. If it’s not fun and we’re not happy, what’s the point?  Ultimately I aim to get all of the yucky stuff (unpleasant unavoidable facets of our human existence) out of the way so that I can make the most of this thing called life.  In a nutshell, coffee, music, exercise, my laptop and large bodies of water are things I cannot live without. I love my life and want everyone I know to also love their life.

This retreat, this line of teaching, is particularly close to my heart. Having spent years not knowing what it meant to love myself, and in fact doubting myself and rejecting myself, I know firsthand, very well what it feels like to live a life essentially being my own bully.  Learning how to love myself and experiencing the most solid ground within has made “Madly in Love with Me” my most personal and heartfelt teaching.

I draw on a multitude of different teachings and philosophies and feel blessed to be able to consistently meet people where they are at and bring them to the next level of their growth.  A trained cognitive therapist, yoga & meditation teacher and coach, I teach and encourage others to dig deeper to see all the possibilities for their future.

With thousands of hours of one-on-one client experience, I’ve had the opportunity to help many people transform their lives, overcome debilitating beliefs and experience a newfound sense of vitality.  I am passionate about life and aim to teach others to maximize their own life. I strive to deliver tools simply and effectively to empower people to live their greatest life yet.
