THE RECEIVE RETREAT

Overview

The Receive Retreat is more than just a getaway; it’s an invitation to immerse yourself in a transformative experience designed specifically for women of color who are ready to receive love, clarity, joy, and growth in abundance.

As the sun rises over the stunning Costa Rican landscape, I welcome you to a retreat that promises to be a sanctuary of serenity. The Receive Retreat is a safe haven where you can shed the burdens of the past, quiet the noise of the present, and listen to the whispers of your heart. 

This retreat is your moment to receive; to open your arms and heart to new possibilities, to invite in a life that resonates with your deepest aspirations.
