New England Coastal Calm
That’s why you can do ALL the things - spa treatments, Netflix, lunch with friends - and still feel as stressed as when you started!
Because no matter how much time or money you spend on relaxation, it can’t take hold if your mental chatter is on overdrive.
But when you give yourself the time and space to get back on your feet — to truly heal — what you find in that stillness will change your life.
Relaxation is so much more than just something to do.
It’s a way of being.
Self compassion. Pleasure. Beauty. Peace.
Connection to a higher power.
YOU ONLY HAVE ONE BODY IN THIS LIFE.
IT'S TIME TO MAKE IT FEEL LIKE HOME AGAIN.
I DESIGNED THE COASTAL CALM RETREAT FOR YOU.
Four days. No obligations or distractions.
A quiet spot on the New England coast, chef-prepared meals, and curated activities to nourish your mind, body, and spirit.
And most special of all - the deep connection and sacred community where like-minded women hold space for one another.
You’ll go home with a clear mind, full heart, and know-how to cultivate calm in your everyday life.
What do you say? Will you join me?
Rest. De-stress. Connect
And learn practical tools to sustain that beautiful sense of calm long after the retreat and into your everyday life. Because we need it now more than ever!
I’m offering this curated experience at this exact moment for a reason.
I want to support you in claiming the time and space to come back to yourself - and unlocking the confidence and self compassion to keep the momentum going.
It’s an investment in yourself - and if you’ve been struggling, it’s one you can’t afford NOT to make.
Well, I’ve got you covered.

Post-retreat virtual gathering to further incorporate all you’ve learned and reconnect with the group.
Set just steps from the Atlantic Ocean, our home away from home is known locally as The Big House - a traditional New England beach house with a breezy California feel.
Newly renovated by a former creative director for Pottery Barn, the decor is high-end but incredibly inviting. It offers lovely gathering spaces around the stone fire pit, sprawling lawn, and wraparound porch.
The property offers cozy, bright accommodations with options for private or shared bedrooms. Rooms have breathtaking views and sounds of crashing waves.
It’s an intimate venue perfect for our small group! The house offers just enough privacy while still allowing us to get to know each other and share a truly special experience.

Little Compton, RI
Little Compton on Rhode Island’s south coast feels like a secret hideaway.
It’s not far from Boston or the bustling scene in Newport — but it’s off the beaten path just enough that you get everything you want from a quaint coastal town, minus the crowds.
Unspoiled beaches stretch for miles, peppered with dramatic cliffs and swaying grass. The Sakonnet River is lined with local organic farms, hiking trails, and wildlife. And no matter where you are, there’s always an ocean breeze.
If it’s serenity you’re seeking, you’ll find it here.
I can feel my shoulders loosening up just thinking about it!

Friday, October 1
Guests will arrive in the late afternoon and have time to settle in before we gather for a welcome reception, and watch the sunset over the water. Chef Lauren will serve our group a lovely plant-based meal, and we’ll gather around the fire pit to set intentions for the weekend before turning in for the night.
This is a retreat focusing on wellness - and I’m taking that to heart by making sure I’m taking precautions to keep everyone well.
I understand that making travel plans during COVID isn’t a decision to make lightly. Your safety is my #1 priority. So here’s what I’m doing to keep this retreat as safe as possible:
Requiring that all participants show proof of a negative PCR COVID test 72 hours prior to the retreat start - regardless of vaccination status (Tests are totally free, easy, and fast at the CVS drive thru!)
Hiring professional cleaners to fully disinfect the venue prior to our arrival
Clearly outlining sanitation protocols for support staff and retreat guests
Conducting many activities outdoors, as weather allows
Keeping the retreat size exceptionally small
Staying apprised of updated state and federal recommendations, and making changes as needed
In the event you do test positive prior to arrival, you can transfer your payment to a future retreat or transfer your spot to another participant with no penalty. Because you know I’m always curating amazing retreat experiences, both locally and internationally!
I’m happy to answer any questions you may have, so please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Frequently Asked Questions
What are your payment and refund policies?
An initial payment of 50% is due at booking. The remaining balance is due before September 1, 2021. Any amount paid is non-refundable but can be transferred to another person for the same retreat in the event you can’t make it. As with any travel investment, I recommend purchasing travel insurance if you require airline tickets.
Does the price include flights and airport transportation?
What kind of food will be served?
We are in for a real treat - the fabulous Chef Lauren D’Agostino will be preparing all of our on-site meals! Lauren is a plant-based chef, and incredibly skilled at making vibrant, fresh dishes where vegetables are the star. We’ll enjoy one restaurant dinner at The Boat House in Tiverton, RI, known for fresh seafood and coastal cuisine. We’re happy to work around dietary restrictions, so just let us know your needs!
Will you be serving alcohol?
Wine will be available with evening meals and events, including a group wine tasting but guests may choose not to drink, and instead enjoy a non-alcoholic beverage. Drinking is not the focus of the event - but you are free to imbibe if you wish!
Is this retreat suitable for solo travelers?
Yes! This retreat is GREAT for women traveling by themselves. Between the intimate venue, small group, and shared relaxation areas, this is truly a bonding experience. Solo travelers from past retreats may have arrived alone, but they left with lifelong friends.
Will I have free time during the retreat?
Is this a phone-free retreat?
I am a big proponent of a good digital detox — but I’d never ask someone to hand over their phone. While it’s great to get away, I don’t want to cause any stress by making it difficult for your loved ones to reach you if need be. But if you REALLY want to go screen-free, I’m happy to support you in making that happen.
Does the retreat involve many physical activities?
Stress lives in the body, so I have planned on several physical activities to access and release that tension. The pace of yoga and hiking will be very gentle, and you are free to slow down even more. No matter your needs or comfort level, I promise a safe space and encourage you to participate in as many activities as you can.
