Exploring Self-Care in Paradise

Feb 11, 2023 – Feb 19, 2023

A week-long retreat lovingly crafted just for women.

Awaken your senses, your sensuality and vitality and reclaim inner joy and tranquility in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

A week in the sensual, lush surroundings of Haramara to unplug, reset, and reconnect with who you really are away from the roles you play in your life.

What you’re invited to experience with Mary and Lisa:

  • Practical tools to renew intimacy and appreciation with yourself and others.
  • A renewed relationship with your senses, your body and your emotional depths
  • A deep exploration of rest, pleasure and receiving- do we believe we have to “earn it”
  • Revitalizing, accessible morning movement and women’s qigong practices
  • Powerful meditations to open your heart to compassion, peace and enjoyment
  • Daily walks on “nature’s stair master”, a peaceful (yet at some points challenging) trek through flowering trees, singing tropical birds and palm trees to a dramatic beachfront complete with swaying hammocks.
  • Afternoon hatha, restorative, yin and yoga nidra practices depending on the needs of the group
  • A special closing experience to reconnect with play and pleasure
  • Quiet centered time, returning to wholeness and the chance to “be” rather than “do”
  • An invitation to deepen your connection to nature and to other women.

What the day looks like:

Daily sunrise therapeutic yoga experiences and qi gong practices with Lisa and Mary in a large, secluded, open air shalas surrounded by nature and birdsong (we’ll sometimes offer on the private beach!)

Mid-morning group explorations of self-love with Mary, beginning and ending with embodied practices and meditations to integrate what’s being received with Lisa.

Three healthy, organic and delicious vegetarian and pescatarian meals luxuriously served from Haramara’s highly acclaimed culinary kitchen in an open-air dining room with a spectacular view including a stunning sunset over the ocean every night.

Enjoy free afternoons with a siesta, a stroll through the vast, jungle-like setting, relax on the secluded beach or at the breathtaking infinity pool looking down at the ocean. You may also indulge in optional spa treatments from supremely skilled local practitioners in spaces created for privacy, yet open to the warm breeze and ocean sounds.

Optional late afternoon movement with Lisa, an exploration of therapeutic practices to support your body, mind and spirit.

Inspiring and optional sleep support practices before bed.

What you’ll take home:

Return to your life inspired, with a new set of daily practices to keep the fire of your vitality and desires burning brightly

You’ll be re-enlivened in your most intimate relationships with yourself, others, and the world we share.

Take your senses on a tour of the Haramara Retreat Center, acclaimed as one of the 10 best yoga retreats in the world.

You’ll see why Mary has returned every year since 2015 and Lisa has attended with Mary three times!

About the Instructors:

Mary Campbell:

Mary Campbell is a long-time women’s empowerment and intimacy teacher, ordained minister and spiritual counselor, wedding officiant, and educator. She is devoted to helping people release what blocks their joy and open to the widest range of what is possible at the intersection of the sacred and the senses. With university degrees and success in career and family life, as she approached mid-life she watched her satisfaction and libido diminish. Under-nourished, despite all the trappings of the West’s success story, she found her voice and her deeper happiness by divining – like a divining rod finds water deep beneath the Earth’s crust – a fuller connection to the natural world and her own present-moment sense pleasure, what she believes every woman is born to enjoy. Mary is the author of the forthcoming book: The Pleasure Playbook: 13 Invitations for Awakening Joy. She offers women’s workshops and retreats near her home in the Berkshire hills of Western Massachusetts and around the globe and works privately with individuals and couples wishing to deepen their connection with themselves, their loved ones and the wider world. You can find years of her periodic blogs and offerings at DiviningBeauty.com, on FB at DiviningBeauty, videos on her YouTube channel, and on Instagram.
