Every woman deserves a moment:
to nourish and be nourished
to connect with her inner compass and all that brings her joy.
And every woman deserves time alone in Nature in the solitude and brilliance of her own company.
Nourish Your Soul Women’s Wellness Retreat is intentionally curated to give you that moment for yourself and to support you in taking a much-needed respite from your day to day. This four-day, three-night experience, hosted by Marsha Rivera and Casie Formiller, is for the woman who holds it all together on her job, in her household, in her business, and for her family and friends and for a few days, would welcome the chance to be poured into her true self, mentally, emotionally, and physically. It is for the woman who is seeking to refill her creative coffers amidst the stunning pink sunsets and healing vortexes of the expansive and picturesque Ojai valley.
WHAT TO EXPECT?Relaxation, rejuvenation, movement, fresh air, and tangible tools and practices that you can take home with you and incorporate after the retreat ends, is what awaits you during Nourish Your Soul Women’s Wellness Retreat.

A Self Mastery Mentor and Root-Cause Functional Therapist,
Emma is here to offer the world a new way of being. Her purpose is to facilitate one's journey of self discovery and she does so by incorporating what she has found to be the two deepest portals to self awareness – one's BODY and BUSINESS. She supports people to get out of their own way, shed misaligned programming, connect the dots of their life, become fluent in their own inner wisdom and ultimately liberate themselves into alignment with their highest potential. She does this by using a multi-modality highly personalized process that is rooted in: holistic psychology, therapeutic techniques and trauma informed healing, nervous system recalibration, neuroscience, human design, ancient wisdom and subconscious reprogramming. Emma's mission lies in the belief that knowing ourselves is the root of all knowing. She safely guides her clients into a life of true soul fulfillment, internal peace and freedom. To be living proof – just like you.
