Why a Weekend Getaway? Why Self-Compassion?

If you’re tired of self-criticism and feeling insufficient, and you’re ready to heal old wounds and shift fears  so you can finally feel whole, confident and in love with your life — join us for 3 days of going inward with a nurturing community in the cozy cabins of Breezy Point Resort.

If you’re feeling stuck or tired of the same painful patterns playing out, it’s time to go deep. It’s time to turn inward and feel it to heal it.

There is only one relationship; the relationship with yourself. All of your other relationships, including with people, your work, and your choices, are simply a reflection of your relationship with you.


Awakening Maitri is designed to shift your relationship with yourself.

Lean into self-compassion and heal your whole life. Free yourself from self-criticism. Start a life of fulfillment.


If you’re thinking about joining us, it’s because you are also feeling that tug from deep within that’s telling you it’s time to evolve and live life totally in love.

We’ve been taught to judge ourselves and others, compete and compare, and focus on gaining approval. It’s not our fault that we’ve been marinating in these messages. But it’s up to us to heal.

Maitri, or a compassionate relationship with oneself, is the only way out. Self-Compassion is what can turn this around. With Self-Compassion we can lean into accepting ourselves, loving the journey, and healing what hurts.

I’m beyond excited to show you the way. I’m pumped to not only share with you the skills, tools and strategies I used (and still use), but to walk with you through a weekend of experiencing transformation.


This isn’t just healing our mindset; it’s healing our hearts.

No article or self-help book, no video on how-to’s will give you the results you’re looking for.

This is heart work.

It’s time to get away from the grind and step into a cozy atmosphere with a nurturing community.

This is where true transformation happens.

Join us for a weekend of true transformation. 




During this retreat you’ll be cozy in one of the Breezy Point Resort cabins, sharing in the lessons, practices, and experiences of others who are looking to deepen their relationship with themselves.

There are separate rooms on each floor of the cabin, each room has two queen beds. Some rooms have a separate bathroom while some will have a shared bathroom on that floor.



Whether Spring is in early bloom or Winter is still with us, the cabin at Breezy Point a gorgeous place to go inward and cultivate self-compassion. It will be easy to get cozy around the fireplace or bonfire, enjoy a bit of nature from the screened in porch or walks around the grounds, and feel comfortable getting to know each other and explore our journeys in a nurturing and supportive community (or sangha).
