Sustainable Wellness Retreats

Sustainable Wellness equation is very simple.

Healthy People x Community = Healthy Earth

Sustainable Wellness focus on co-creating the healthy community through teaching the healing ability we each have within. We offer workshops, retreats, and ceremonies for you to learn and experience the healing power of nature through traditional wisdom and scientific knowledge. We believe that by bringing wellness to each of us, we become our full potential of who we really are and create a community in a positive way. Below is a list of all retreats in 2017 with open registration. Please explore the options to learn more about OUR retreats and what we offer. We look forward to grow the sustainable community and healthy earth together with you!
