A Intimate Women Nature Retreat

East Texas October 11-14

By Laurence Turcios

A journey of letting go

If you're a midlife woman ready to connect with nature, make new friends, and let go of what doesn't serve you anymore, join me on a serene and private property in East Texas for a transformative journey of self-discovery.

Gazing across the forest, you reflect on the past few wonderful days: deep connections and learning, peaceful nature walks,  healing practices and the joy of focusing on your personal growth.

Taking in the beauty, you feel pride in investing in yourself, addressing those old habits that no longer serve you. This is your time to let go and embrace renewal.

Empowerment and hope emerge as you step into the closing circle with your new friends, ready to surrender to your life with a clear mind and an open heart.

Welcome to the Surrender Retreat!


How nurturing would it feel to...

  • Awaken in the morning, not feeling overwhelmed with daily responsibilities.

  • Spend 4 serene days and 3 nights filled with Nature connection, Learning, Movement, Meditation and Reflection.

  • Know that you’re in a safe, welcoming environment where you can be heard and seen while supporting each other during our sharing circles.

Surrender, a journey of letting go...

Throughout our time together, you will engage in creative exercises, somatic work, deep connection with nature, and introspection to release old habits and emotional burdens. You will return home...

  • Feeling lighter and more empowered.

  • Clear on what no longer serves you and how to let it go.

  • Trusting the flow of your life.

  • With a clear mind and revitalized energy

  • Ready to be unapologetically be yourself in this midlife journey, 

  • With a renewed sense of purpose and direction.

  • More connected to nature, yourself and to likeminded women who understand your journey,
