{re}TREAT Yourself: Oregon Coast, November 2019

With Beth Woolsey, Maggie Peterson, Melanie Springer Mock, Heidi Hopkins and Polly Peterson

November 7 - 10, 2019

9900F2E4-4976-49E4-896E-989D130A6245Beth Woolsey is proud to announce her newest retreat theme: {re}Treat Yourself.

The truth is, we all need a chance to rest. A chance for respite. A chance for renewal and time dedicated to self-care and fun. {re}Treat Yourself! As in, treat yourself… then treat yourself again… that’s why these retreats exist.

“Re” = “again?” ReTreat. “Re” = “regarding?” RE:Treat. And, of course, “retreat” = “withdraw from the world because DEAR GOD WE NEED REFUGE for a little while.”

I mean, right? Yes, right.

With {re}Treat Yourself, Beth’s retreat team is combining all the elements participants have loved at past retreats into one cohesive experience.

There will be fantastic fresh food, a welcoming community, a relaxing environment, ample opportunities for both down time and planned activities, and expert guidance in topical sessions about Mindfulness with Heidi Hopkins and Discovering our Inherent Worthiness with Melanie Springer Mock. (There will also quite possibly be naked hot tubbing, questionable language, and stories with WAY too much personal information because Beth Woolsey isn’t very socially appropriate, but they keep letting her come anyway. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) A sample schedule is below.




Truly everything about the retreat was shocking in how incredible it was. Location, people, food, the balance of sessions and free time, the love and sincerity of everyone there. I would go again in a second and recommend it to anyone.
