Women who are recovering in all areas of their lives and who follow all pathways of recovery are warmly welcomed at all SHE RECOVERS retreats, events and offerings.

Is a She Recovers Beach Retreat right for me?

If you answer “yes” to the following questions, then these retreats are perfect for you:

Are you a strong and courageous woman in recovery?
Do you love the sun, sand and the sea?
Are your days feel full but overly busy?
Do you ever feel like you just need to stop and catch your breath?
Would you like to hit pause and take a sabbatical from life?
Are you looking to form healthy relationships with women just like you?

Our retreats help us to fulfill our mission – to connect, support and empower women in or seeking recovery.

Our retreat program started out with our first ever retreat taking place on the beach in Mexico in November 2012. This is such a popular offering that we now hold four Mexico retreats each year and they sell out almost immediately after we launch them!

The focus of these retreats truly is radical self-care and nurturing our souls. We gather at our amazing private villa in Playa Secreto, Mexico (20 minutes from Cancun Airport) and enjoy our private beach and pool, are fed gourmet healthy meals by our private chef. How we spend our days is completely at our own discretion. Most of us practice yoga twice a day on the rooftop, walk along the beach, rest, read and enjoy connecting with other like-hearted and other like-minded women.
