Long to spend time reflecting and rejuvenating without booking flights or babysitters and taking time off work?
I’ve dreamed up a sampling of the full-fledged retreat experience from the comfort of your own home.
This adventure includes: live opening and closing video gatherings, a live mid-day video check-in, guided multimedia how-tos on journaling, yoga, mindful eating, meditation, and art journaling with accompanying exercises, pre- and post-retreat PDF manuals, day-of PDF manual, and a private Facebook group.
This day provides a bite-sized retreat for you to hit the pause button, vary your routine, learn new skills, connect with like-hearted ladies, and return with what’s most meaningful to you.
Online, from the comfort of your own home.

Virtual Retreats: Take anytime at your own pace
What if I can’t do yoga?
No problem, you can skip this portion or work with an alternative such as a Body Scan.
What materials do I need?
A computer with Internet access, writing tools, journal and/or art journal, tube of acrylic paint or watercolor or colored pencils to create the art journal background, ephemera (bits of paper such as ticket stubs, books, photos, images from magazines, maps), an expired credit card or hotel room card for painting, one raisin, lunch, and a yoga mat.
What’s the difference between the Virtual Retreats?
Virtual Retreats may be taken live or At Your Own Pace after the live event is over. Each Virtual Retreat contains new sessions with new practices and a new focus to fit the season.
At Your Own Pace Virtual Retreats contain all of the modules from the previously held live version and also include recordings of the live segments. Since the At Your Own Pace Virtual Retreat is not live, interacting with retreaters or Kimberly in the chat box isn’t possible.
How long do I have access to the Virtual Retreat material?
Forever, darling. You can retreat over and over again.
I need to miss part of the day, can I still join?
Absolutely! The live portions are recorded and sent out within 48 hours.

I absolutely loved the retreat today. It was such a great way to spend a Saturday. Participating has reminded me how good it feels to slow down and give myself the time to recharge. Feeling a new spark of creativity. Loved connecting with all of you and look forward to more.
Just looked in the mirror and I think I look younger than I did this morning! I’m so relaxed!!!! What a fabulous morning.
I’d forgotten how much fun art journaling can be – especially not having to stay within the lines, cut with a scissors, or make something perfect. The last time I wrote in my art journal was January 2015. So much has changed since then, and this exercise helped me to shift my perspective to embracing change and discerning what I need in my life to spark joy.
I’ve been to local day long yoga workshops and enjoyed being with a group. But I have to say, being the introvert that I am and loving my quiet time, this was something I would do again and again. Being in my own familiar space, relaxed but at the same time connected with everyone by your video and the Facebook Group. You thought of everything!
The Virtual Retreat is exactly what I needed during this busy time of the year for me. As an introvert with an extroverted job and tendencies, it was wonderful to give myself the opportunity to “check out” for the day while still being in my own space. I lit candles and incense, put on soothing jazz, and spent the whole day in my comfiest clothes virtually connecting with my favorite yoga and mindfulness guru. I also loved that we will always have access to the modules. I have been on a few retreats with Kimberly, and leave wishing I could take it all with me. Now I can!
I LOVED attending my very first virtual retreat! It was the perfect way to spend a Saturday. Kimberly was the perfect host interacting with us through a live feed at the beginning of the retreat as well as through the Facebook group and Periscope. My expectation was that I would be “alone” on this retreat, but I was wrong! I felt so connected to the other women that attended even though we were from all over the world. One of my biggest takeaways was that taking time out for myself is not only important, but imperative. This was truly a one of the best workshops I’ve ever attended and will not be my last.
When I decided to sign up for Kimberly’s Virtual Retreat I wasn’t convinced that it would work. The idea that I would be able to cut off the phone and commit myself to the experience seemed a bit of a stretch. Yet, I was able to stick with the schedule, ignore the phone-text -email messages, and fully immerse myself in the activities. If you aren’t able to free up the full day, I think it would work use the videos and break the sessions into two half days.
I can’t thank you enough for such a clearly thought out virtual retreat. It was such a blessing not to need to get dressed, drive to an airport, not have to put on make-up, and to be comfortable in my own home without distraction (except for my two fur babies).
The hallmark of an enlightening retreat, presentation, email, or post are the moments a heart is touched, a thought is planted, or a direction changed. And, how all this continues to impact. It’s a week later (I like to wait a while and let things process.) and I realize that the virtual retreat was more powerful than I thought it would be. In fact, it’s helping me to change direction, well, actually, to reconnect to my core being.
I highly recommend her Virtual Retreat. It didn’t feel virtual at all. No distractions from others in attendance, or traveling, or needing to be presentable. Just following along with a smile, my coffee, computer and toys of choice. It was a meaningful day, one, it turns out, I deeply needed. I felt joyful thinking about it in the weeks previous to it. Looking at my calendar brought a little spark of light waving at me to carry on as my reward was coming soon.
