Relationships allow us to feel connected. One of the most painful experiences we can have is that of feeling disconnected. CONNECTED Retreat is an intimate gathering of like-hearted people desiring to heal our connection to what we love most in life. Whether you’re single or in a romantic relationship (with or without a significant other in attendance) this retreat is intended for you. CONNECTED focuses on examining and repairing the places in which we feel lonely, misunderstood, wounded and abandoned so that we can then organically grow into feeling connected, loving and at peace.

Why a retreat setting?

The company of a supportive group of people who struggle with similar challenges offers a deeply healing experience. Retreats organically create a beautiful space of belonging and support. The intensity of emotional work achieved in a group setting is more profound to that of a one on one private session. This is the deepest type of personal growth work currently offered in Charleston.

What Past Retreat Participants Have To Say:



” It was one of the most memorable and healing experiences I had yet to have in 38 years, and I have been retreating and workshopping my way through the a good bit of my adult life to say the least! As the retreat was coming to a closing we all had a collective feeling of having found a new family we wished we never had to leave.”- Charlotte- October 2015 Participant Of “Finding Strength After Heartbreak” Emotional Healing Retreat



“The retreat was a wonderful experience. I would like to experience something similar every year. I learned that I need to heal my inner child. I gained insight into how others deal with their issues and what they have gone through. I learned not everyone has got it all together. We all need healing. We all need to turn our thinking around. We all need to be deprogrammed. It is a process and the more I take care of myself the more healing will take place.”- Domingo- October 2015 Participant Of “Finding Strength After Heartbreak” Emotional Healing Retreat



“It was such a safe environment to just come in, be who you are, talk about what’s going on with you and share that with people. There was never even a moment when I was being judged. It was peaceful, and friendly and loving.” Steve – September 2016 Participant of “TREASURE YOU” Emotional Healing Retreat




“Working with Diana was a beautiful invitation inward. She really invited me to look at aspects of myself I hadn’t looked at. She gave me an incredible perspective on myself and the way I show up in the world.”-Laura- September 2016 Participant of “TREASURE YOU” Emotional Healing Retreat




“This was my first retreat longer than a day. It was meaningful to see us all come together with different stories yet seeking the same inner peace and resolution. If I were to sum up my experience in one word I would say TRANSFORMATION. It was a wonderful experience- I can hardly wait for the next one.”-Ximena- September 2016 Participant of “TREASURE YOU” Emotional Healing Retreat
