Imagine this: you wake up in the morning feeling energized and ready to take on the world. You enjoy a nutritious and filling breakfast before you head off to your dream job. At night, you come home and relax while you watch your favorite T.V. show, read a compelling book, or spend quality time with your family.
If you’re reading this thinking, “Man, my life could never look like that,” then I’m here to tell you that you’re mistaken.
Change is possible, and a great way to get started is by booking a self-healing retreat. Otherwise known as a self-improvement or self-transformation retreat, these retreats can help you finally end bad habits, give you back your motivation, and put you on a path towards your dream life.
Here are ten amazing retreats for self-healing that will surely transform your life for the better.
1 – Practice Sound Healing at the Maui Mystical Alchemy Retreat
In my opinion, there’s no better place to focus on self-healing than a tropical oasis. When you book a Maui Mystical Alchemy Retreat, you get to stay in a beautiful temple hidden in the dense jungle, surrounded by diverse animal life, waterfalls, and ultimate serenity.
They offer unique retreats that promote self-healing through a combination of Hatha/Kundalini yoga, aerial yoga play, and sound meditation.
Every morning, you will wake up and eat a delicious plant-based breakfast at 7:30am. Next, you’ll head over to the studio for two hours of yoga and sound healing.
In the afternoon, you’re free to relax in the clay hot tub, browse the web in your room, or explore the beautiful waterfalls, beaches, and bamboo forests that you can find in Maui, Hawaii.
2 – Heal Together at this Intensive Couple’s Retreat
Are you feeling emotionally distant from your partner? Do you find yourself getting irritable seemingly every time your partner speaks?
Maybe you’re struggling with infidelity issues. Maybe your partner is. No matter what the problem is, you know your relationship is in jeopardy.
The Wellness Counseling Center located in Charlotte, North Carolina offers an intensive 2.5 day couples retreat to help you and your partner feel trusted, connected, and loved again. This is an accelerated counseling program that fits ten weeks of couple’s therapy into a super short period of time.
That may sound nerve-wracking, but it’s for good reason. You’re able to really dig into resolving your relationship challenges, and you won’t have your day-to-day worries to distract you.
At this self-healing retreat, you and your partner get to meet with experienced professional therapists who are there to help you rediscover your love for one another.
3 – Rejuvenate and Cleanse Your Body at this Liquid Detox Retreat
Does your body feel sluggish, slow, or even exhausted every day? Do you have to drink endless cups of coffee every morning just to keep your eyes open?
Maybe you don’t need more caffeine. Instead, you could try booking a healing juice detox retreat. The Simply Juicy Detox Retreat in Bali is an 11-day long dedication to cleansing your body.
You’ll match up with a Personal Wellness Assistant, who will monitor your progress throughout this self-healing retreat. You can decide whether or not you want to commit to a full detox or a light detox program.
The full detox is intense: each day, you only drink cold pressed organic vegetable juices, wheatgrass juice, and warm alkalizing vegetable broth. This lets your body rid itself of toxins and start anew.
4 – Silence Heals at the Rise Blissfully Silent Retreat
Meditation can be the perfect remedy for mental healing. It helps you discover your true self, rid your mind of judgements, and let you feel more connected to your emotions and the world around you.
If you book a retreat at Rise Blissfully Silent in Umbria, Italy, you’ll be sure to take your meditation practice to the next level. There, you’ll spend three full days in complete silence. That means no speaking or reading. You won’t be able to access the internet or your phone on this retreat for self-healing!
If you’re up for the challenge, you will reap the rewards. You will be able to dive deep into your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions. You will gain an understanding of yourself that you never had before.
The best part is that you’ll stay in an Eco Luxury Hermitage with no internet or cell reception, surrounded by the serene valleys, hills, and olive groves of Italy.
5 – Take Back Your Life at the Addiction Recovery Beyond Yoga Retreat
Addiction is a terrible disease. It traps you in an unhealthy cycle that quickly turns into a downward spiral. You can feel yourself getting sucked in. Whether it’s smoking, binge-eating, or hard drugs, addictions are extremely tough to break.
Retreats for self-healing can be transformative when it comes to battling and overcoming addiction. Located in blissful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, the Beyond Yoga Retreat is a 30-day long yoga and wellness retreat that specializes in addiction recovery.
The retreat has in-house therapists with expertise working to help people overcome addictions. You’ll get three group therapy sessions and two individual therapy sessions per week to ensure that you’re guided through your recovery by trained professionals.
When you’re not in therapy, you can enjoy a complimentary massage, embark on excursions into nature with the adventure guide, and partake in a number of workshops and ceremonies that promote healing and personal growth.
6 – Purify Your Mind and Soul at this Panchakarma Yoga Retreat
If you haven’t heard of Panchakarma and you’re interested in holistic healing techniques, this one’s for you. It’s the purification therapy in Ayurvedic medicine, which is one of the oldest healing practices in the entire world.
One of Ayurveda’s most important concepts is that illnesses occur in the body due to a buildup of toxins, and when your mind and body are unevenly balanced. From insomnia, to depression, to high cholesterol, to heart disease, Panchakarma can help treat your ailment.
There’s a fantastic self-healing retreat in South Berwick, Maine that uses Panchakarma practices to help you recover and start leading a happy, balanced life.
There, you will eat Kitchari prepared with organic plant-based food for every meal and you will receive classes in sound healing, yoga, and nature meditation. You even get daily Ayurvedic oil massages with blissful herbal steam therapy.
7 – Experience Life-Changing Transformation at this Magic Mushroom Retreat
If you ever tripped on shrooms back in college, then you may know that those little fungi are incredibly powerful and awe-inspiring.
What you may not know is that the psychoactive chemical in magic mushrooms, psilocybin, can be used for more than just a wacky experience. Research shows that psilocybin has therapeutic benefits when administered by professionals. It can help you to practice mindfulness and discover truths you never knew about yourself.
At the Earth Awareness Retreat Center in the Netherlands, you can book a stay and partake in one of their Magic Mushroom Retreats. There, you will receive two psilocybin ceremonies, daily workshops for wellness and self-healing, and nutritious, organic vegetarian meals.
Don’t worry—you’ll be well-prepared for the psilocybin ceremonies to ensure that you have a safe and therapeutic experience. You’ll receive detailed guidelines before you leave for the retreat, and you’ll have a friendly discussion with trained guides upon arrival to prepare you for your first ceremony.
The purpose of the first psilocybin ceremony is to help you travel inwards and explore your deepest self, assisted by a playlist designed to guide you through your mind. The other ceremony is in a group setting where you can connect with others and listen to live music.
8 – Get Out of Your Slump at this Health and Fitness Retreat
Do you find yourself planning to hit the gym, or to integrate healthier foods into your diet, but you just can’t seem to get yourself to stick to it?
It takes hard work and dedication to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and many of us don’t have the time to spend focusing on improving our health. We have busy jobs, active social lives, and family commitments. Who could blame you?
Here’s your solution: take some time off work and head out on the 15 Days All Inclusive Revitalize Your Energy retreat at the Natural Detox Koh Samui Holistic Resort in Thailand. This self-improvement retreat is designed to help you achieve your fitness goals, develop a healthy meal plan, and gain some peace of mind.
At the Revitalize Your Energy retreat, your trainers promote natural detox through healthy eating and exercise. They don’t focus on fast-acting cleanses or harmful colonic weight-loss regimens.
Each day, you’ll begin with a cardio session. You can choose swimming, cycling, hiking, or even Muay Thai boxing. After enjoying a nutritious raw, vegan, or vegetarian breakfast, you get to take a yoga and meditation class.
In the afternoon, you’ll focus on building body strength with experienced trainers. Surely your favorite part of the retreat will be the massage you receive at 8pm every single night!
9 – Jumpstart a New Routine at Aro Ha
It’s time for a lifestyle change. You don’t feel like your best self, and you’ve lost your path. You’re searching for a shift in your mindset, just waiting for something in your life to finally go right.
If you’re struggling with these challenges, know you’re not alone. Better yet, know that there are people out there who can help you get back on the right path.
At the Aro Ha retreat center in New Zealand, their expert athletes and guides know that the right daily routine can transform your emotional, physical, and mental wellbeing. When you book a retreat here, you’ll follow a specific routine every day that was skillfully designed to improve your health.
This new routine includes mindfulness practices, fitness exercises, healthy eating, yoga, and relaxation techniques.
After participants leave the retreat, they notice that their mood is uplifted, they can sleep through the night, and they’re able to find their passion in life again.
10 – Heal in a Safe Space at this Women’s Healing and Empowerment Center
Sometimes, women need an escape from this man’s world that we live in day in and day out. It can feel so nice to get away with a small group of women for a while, because we can relate to one another on a deep level.
The Sonoran Winds Women’s Healing and Empowerment Center is designed so that women can escape for a few days to heal in a safe space with other women by their sides.
If you’re an early bird, you will get a head-start every morning journaling or meditating, followed by attending group yoga class. Then, breakfast is served!
Each meal is designed specifically for you, and any dietary needs you may have will be met. In the afternoon, you have some time for journaling and self-care.
During your week-long stay, you’ll receive two complimentary therapy sessions. Your experience begins and ends with a fire ceremony and a sisterhood circle to empower you and help you build lasting bonds with the women you meet on your self-healing retreat.
