LOVEYOURBRAIN Retreats

“At the LoveYourBrain retreat, I felt heard. That’s the best way to say it. I didn’t need to explain my TBI to anyone. The LYB community understood. They listened. They provided me practical tools and resources to navigate my unique recovery journey”
— Thom Mascia


A transformative holistic health environment

Our retreats support people with TBI and their caregivers to cultivate the resilient mindset, physical capability, and support system essential to their lasting wellbeing. Our retreats are intentionally designed based on our core pillars:

We offer these retreats free of cost, and also invite participants to join us in fundraising (suggested goal of $1,000, the true cost per participant).

“Explaining a brain injury to people is difficult. It’s not like a broken leg that you can see and watch heal. It’s invisible. But at the LoveYourBrain Retreat there’s nothing to explain because everyone understands our difficulties and challenges because they live with them too. There’s this look in their eye that says, ‘I totally get it, I know exactly how you feel.’”
