Rooted Connection

A retreat for young adults:
to be seen,
to be supported, 
to be you,
to be.

A day retreat for 18-24 year olds as you ebb and flow through the big transitions of adulting and being a human.

Honour your truest self, lean into your inherent curiosity, compassion, and intuition. Connect with community, nature, and nourish your nervous system. This is your permission to slow down, to be supported in community, and root into your worthiness. You don't have to do it all alone and you are worthy of support on your journey. 

You are already enough,

this is your invitation to come back to that.


Your Hosts

Taylor's practice focus is on anxiety, self-esteem & worth, life transitions, emotional regulation, and trauma recovery. Emily's practice focus is on grief & loss, and life transitions. They both have a passion for supporting young adults as they navigate this crazy world.
