What is the cost?
Our caregiver retreats are offered at a cost through locations such as The Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA. These costs vary based on accommodations. For each retreat, LoveYourBrain offers the opportunity for partial scholarship through an application process. Additionally, each participant is responsible for their travel costs to and from the retreat location.
How do I apply?
When we have availability, our application form will be available on our website. Once reviewed, applicants will be contacted for next steps within 2-4 weeks. All applicants will be contacted to be informed of our decision. Make sure to sign up for our newsletters and follow us on social media where we will update you with new retreats and availability.
Why is availability limited?
We are deeply committed to creating intimate spaces where people can authentically and vulnerable connect, so we intentionally keep our group sizes to under 15-20 people. We are working to expand to different locations and partnerships, allowing us the opportunity to open more spaces to new participants. Our numbers will vary depending on the location and focus of each retreat. We will create as many spaces for participants as possible, while maintaining a group size that allows for us to offer the most meaningful program possible.
Will you host more retreats in the future?
Yes! It is our intention to expand our retreat program. We are interested in offering retreats at more locations, and with different focuses, to make these accessible to more people each year. If you know of any retreat centers that may be interested in hosting us, please let us know.
