As physicians ourselves, we know how easy it is to neglect your own well-being over caring for others.
Our retreat offers an incredible opportunity to finally focus on yourself first, so you can be at your best with your patients and loved ones.
You'll have the space to unplug from external pressures and rediscover the peace and joy that have been missing from your life.
You will learn unique self-care practices to help you better manage stress, elevate work performance, and enhance relationships with colleagues and patients.
And perhaps most importantly, you’ll be surrounded by like-minded physicians who understand the unique challenges of practising medicine.
Together, we'll share our collective experiences and knowledge to create an empowering community of support and healing.
Healing the Healer is more than just a retreat – it’s an unforgettable experience that will help you create a life that feels truly fulfilling.
"It’s just something every woman deserves. They deserve this moment for themselves and to do this for themselves – to put themselves first and to just come out here and experience it all."
~ Dr. Tenesa J.
We believe that self-care is key to maintaining balance and flow in both your personal and professional life.
And we'll provide a variety of activities and workshops to help you do just that.
Our yoga and meditation offerings will include:
• Modo/Rasa inspired flow,
• Neurogenic yoga (for trauma),
• Mindfulness meditation,
• QiGong, and
• Healings with reiki and other energy modalities.
We'll close each inspiring day by holding sacred soul ceremonies and healing circles in the evening – including a dance party. 💃🏽

"[At the retreat] I learned how to become more self-aware, how to manage emotions that contribute to burnout, and practices that are going to improve my self-care so I can enjoy my profession better, longer, and help more patients."
~ Dr. Sandy R.
"I would not only recommend [the retreat] for other physicians, but I will return myself to get more of it because I felt like it really resonated with me. It nourished my soul, and I think it would be a good practice to continue so I can keep implementing it and reinforcing what I learned."
~ Dr. Tenesa J.
