One or two (time dependent) guided trips to the island's secret spots and trails, or discover them on your own with a few directions.

Forest bathing to learn how to fully engage the senses, open your awareness, and enliven your life force energy.

Learn quick, healthy meal preparation without recipes, using common ingredients so you don't have to rely on take-out when you're short on time.

Post retreat coaching sessions to identify and release stuck emotions and limiting beliefs that keep you from having the vibrant body you want.

IMPORTANT: This experience continues for four months after you leave the island, with 8 coaching sessions to help you integrate what you've learned during your retreat into your everyday life. You'll have full support in maintaining your new healthy lifestyle during this transition phase. I believe in the people I work with. I want the results that you want, and when we work together, together we get results.

About This Event

Savour a peaceful, nourishing, personal retreat on beautiful San Juan Island, Washington State in this highly supportive program to embrace healthy lifestyle habits that stick. 

Hi there! I'm Stephanie Prima. I work with people who are beginning to feel the pain of aging and are afraid of that slippery slope. I help them age with less pain and the energy of a much younger person - their friends are envious and wonder what they've gotten in to!

You probably recognize that you need to find more balance in your life, or make some healthy lifestyle changes. Maybe you've watched someone else age in pain and you want something better for yourself. Or maybe your doctor has given you alarming news and you know now is a good time to alter course.

But knowing where to start and what to do can be confusing. There's so much conflicting information out there, and so little time to research and implement.

That's why I created this one-on-one very focused experience - to introduce you to the lifestyle skills that you need to manage stress, maintain a peaceful mind, and age vibrantly. 

I understand what it's like to wake up every day tired, feeling lousy or depressed, or simply wondering 'is that all there (contact info blocked) do I go next?

I would like to guide you into a new, healthy YOU. Using core elements from my my proven E.M.T. for Your Health system, we'll customize your program. You'll have fun learning the skills that will be most effective for YOU. Not only will you come back home feeling fully confident that you can embody this NEW YOU lifestyle, you’ll feel exhilarated as you embrace your new outlook. 

In the very private 3-Day, 2 Night 'Introducing a Healthy New YOU' experience, you will:

Learn how to identify exactly what your body wantsConnect with your intuition so that you are no longer tempted to act in unhealthy waysPractice powerful relaxation techniques that will support your new healthy lifestyle and enhance your energyLearn techniques to awaken the inner wisdom of your body to align with optional health and the source of inspirationReturn home armed with tools to implement right away, and the excitement that comes with confidence that you can reach your goal.

But let's be realistic: not many people can fully implement change in just a few days. It typically takes 3 months or more to get new habits ingrained into your system. And it's not always easy; sometimes you get discouraged or sidetracked.

That's why this retreat includes a full 4 months of distance guidance. With a mentor by your side, you will be gently guided through a proven process that is guaranteed to support you in releasing the fears, pains, disappointments and limiting beliefs that are holding you back from having the life you truly want.

I was in a real place of change and I left there very, very clear; I actually had a life-changing epiphany that is still with me. So I want to encourage you, if you are in the midst of change, don't walk, RUN to her place. ~ Eliana and from Ashera: A visit with Stephanie on the island was the antidote that allowed for inner relaxation, silence and (contact info blocked) on the island with Stephanie is a powerful way to embody what you need to learn to help yourself, stay healthy and center in the silence of truth.
