From Self-Abandonment to Inner Belonging
June 25, 2021 - June 27, 2021
  • do you feel disconnected from your life?
  • do you get caught in cycles of people-pleasing followed by resentment in your relationships?
  • do you feel stuck or unsure of what you want your next steps to be in relationships, career, or life?
  • do you find yourself longing for a connection to a deeper sense of meaning?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, now is the perfect time to go inward and prioritize the most sacred relationship in your life. The one with your Self.

We’re Vanessa Bennett, LMFT, and Dené Logan, AMFT. Two soul sisters and therapists with a background in depth psychology. We’re also mindfulness coaches and avid yoginis. But more than anything else, we’re passionate about supporting others in living their most authentic life.

We specialize in helping people unearth the limiting beliefs and behavior patterns that hold them back from their potential. We specialize in this because it’s work we have also committed to doing for ourselves in our own lives.

Join us for a 3-day LIVE virtual retreat, where we will hold a safe space where you can take intentional breaks from your daily routine to drop in and connect with us, with yourself, and with other like-minded souls. We will create a sacred container for recognizing the origins of our most challenging conditioned responses. The early childhood wounds, survival mechanisms, and trauma responses that have impacted our experience of life are not the truth of who we are.

This retreat will support you in:

  • creating healthy and sustainable boundaries and communication in your relationships
  • breaking the habit of people-pleasing
  • stopping the pattern of numbing and running from yourself
  • recognizing the habit of spiritual bypassing
  • connecting to a deeper knowing of your Self through Shadow work
  • experiencing self-liberation through somatic movement

These 3 days will include:

  • yoga, movement, breathwork, and guided meditation
  • group instruction and processing
  • prompted journaling work and take home reflections
  • tangible tools to implement moving forward
  • an immersive therapeutic experience in community
