The Nurtured by Nature Retreat and Playhouse is the host location for all personal growth/healing retreats offered by Explore Life Coaching. 

The variety of retreat options are described below.


Disconnect to reconnect


To go on a retreat is a decision to step away from your ordinary existence. Being on retreat allows you to be present in the moment and become more self-aware, to notice what lights you up and to remind yourself about what contributes to experiencing life with a greater sense of peace, joy, purpose and connection. It’s about learning to trust what you feel as your truth, without the need for external validation.


To go on a retreat requires you to make a conscious, intentional choice to stop the habitual patterns of your life for a period of time and step into a safe space that allows you to connect with your heart and explore new ways of thinking and being.

By stepping away from the common norms, habits and obligations, shedding the usual roles and expectations, and stepping into a nurturing and peaceful natural environment, you get closer and closer to your authentic self, your true nature and you remember what it feels like when you are well rested, well nourished, and cared for.

To go on retreat is not just something you choice to do for your own benefit. It is not a selfish act. When you do something to improve your own well-being, it has an impact on well-being of everyone you touch in your life. When you gift yourself the space to focus on your own growth and healing journey, you become better equipped to walk your own path and better able to support the people in your life, at home, at work, and at play.
