Winter Respite 2017


Winter Respite is a low-demand retreat.  Here, in the warmth of the Florida sun, you can choose to participate in a selection of gentle offerings or not!  You can spend your time mesmerized by the ever changing color and mood of the ocean, hunting shells and sand dollars in the white sands, or wading in the warm water of the Gulf.  You can book a massage, reiki session or a private reading with Karina. You can sleep late or turn in early.  Winter Respite is designed to be a safe haven to fall apart, rest deeply, do nothing, create wildly, heal gently, find clarity, re-locate your center and re-set your mind-body-heart-soul connection.  You can choose to participate in all, none or some of the daily offerings. Likewise, booking private sessions is your choice.

2016 was a bumpy ride for many of us. We came to the end of the year more than a little road-weary, bruised, confused, grief-stricken and exhausted.  Winter Respite is a place to come re-locate your center so you’re ready to face 2017 with a new and clear perspective. We’re offering a variety of ways to help you shed the energetic detritus of recent events, reconnect to your self-care and spiritual practices and plug in to the big source-energy of glorious sunhine, endless blue sky, warm azure water and like-minded people.
