Relationship Betrayal Recovery

Join us for a one-day retreat with incredible healing practitioners, a guided recovery roadmap, and self-reflection. Spend a full day with Wildfire Retreats, in partnership with the Blue Lotus Center in a relaxing and inviting atmosphere. We focus on healing through 4 pillars: nature exposure, somatic techniques (breathing practices and yoga), Certified Trauma Recovery Coaching modalities, and creative therapies (journaling, artwork, or writing).

Imagine having the tools you need to build self-compassion, increase resilience and understand the brain-body-trauma recovery connection: we meet you where you are in a peer-to-peer, non-judging community.

This women’s-only retreat creates a pathway for surviving, coping with and healing from relationship betrayal. This retreat will help you safely navigate the emotional, mental, and familial aspects of managing current life. Let us lift the weight and uplift your spirit. Leave with even more confidence that you are a valued, strong, and beautiful person.
