Checka's retreats are little presents I give myself every year. There is something about these retreats that keep me coming back and are weekends/weeks I look forward to throughout the year. First of all, let's talk about Checka herself. An amazing teacher and a welcoming host, she has a gift of creating unique retreats that bring together a harmonious group that always seems to fit together. Secondly, through her retreats I have met and cultivated friendships with over 20 women! When we re-connect at the next retreat or the one after that, it is like having a family reunion. There is something comforting in arriving at the retreat center and seeing familiar faces in the crowd. Finally, the locations that Checka brings us to are all amazing in their own way. From Vermont to Massachusetts to Hawaii to Costa Rica, each retreat has given me beautiful scenery, outdoor adventure, and healing.
