  Fabulous Over 60 Women's Retreat                    Women's Health and Wellness Retreat

Seven days - Six nights 

June 7th  - June 13th, 2024

Emily, MN

Nestled in the forest, on a private environmental lake, is the home of AnnapurnaBlue Resort.  A place to bathe in nature.


"Bathing in nature" is not about walking around naked in the forest with a bar of soap.  Bathing in nature is a Japanese practice known as Shinrin Yoku - the process of relaxation. A simple method of being calm and quiet among the trees, observing nature around you while breathing deeply, that helps both adults and children de-stress and boost health and wellbeing in a natural way.  

During this retreat you will:

Build on your deep life experience. Find your inner self that has been put on hold while you raised a family and had a career. Learn new tools and techniques to shift how you view and take care of your mind, body and spirit. Discover what you want to do with the rest of your life. 

Our mind, body and spirit are linked together. Our mind has great power over our physical and mental health.   At our Fabulous Over 60 Women's retreat we will give you the techniques to nurture your mind, balance your life and improve your wellbeing.  Increase your coping skills and decrease depression.  Deal better with life obstacles. Find calm within your daily life.

We need to focus also on taking care of our bodies.  This retreat will teach body movement activities to improve physical health.  Just like nurturing our minds, it is equally important to nurture our bodies.  This will improve our health, heart conditions, diabetes and other health insecurities. 

Nurturing our spirit fills us with so much joy in your life.  Everyone has a spiritual life, no matter what their religion or lack of one. Compassion, laughter, purpose, service to others, all create joy. This retreat includes techniques to improve your own concept of your spiritual life and find inner happiness.     

Through this retreat you will re-discover you!.  All your past life experience has brought you to this place now.  Every wrinkle, gray hair, and body shape change makes you “The Fabulous You!”   

This retreat and our amazing staff will give you space to reflect on what you would like to do during the next chapter of your life and be empowered to take that leap.
