Mindfulness Retreats

We will learn simple mindfulness tools teaching them how to be in the present moment at any time. We will play mindfulness games because learning with play is the best way to learn!

Mindfulness is simply noticing what is happening right now. We will learn simple mindfulness tools teaching them how to be in the present moment at any time. We will also play mindfulness games because learning with play is the best way to learn! Enjoy the outdoors while finding your creative side of drawing and painting with your imagination. Everyone’s an artist in their own unique way.

We tend to be REactive. For example, when someone says something we don’t like to hear, we react. Sometimes we say something that we would like to take back the moment after we blurt it out. Or we get knocked down by a heavy emotion and it can take days to bounce back, sometimes even weeks.

Mindfulness helps us create space between a strong emotion and our actions. We learn to deal with positive and negative experiences more calmly and by making better decisions.

When we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings, we can respond in a more clever way, without hurting our own feelings or the feelings of others. As we create more emotional balance, we are less easily knocked down by our emotions, but in moments when we are knocked down, we bounce back faster.

Teachers Retreat:
Surrounding yourself with like minded teachers is beneficial in itself. Then add in some self-discovery and classroom management tools to walk away with. It’s the perfect “weekend away”. I can come to you to make it even more convenient!

Moms Retreat:
Providing you a few nights away to focus on gaining the tools for yourself and learn how to share them with your family. You will have immense growth while breaking through limiting beliefs. You walk away with new perspectives and more self awareness.

Tween/Teen Retreat:
Your daughter will feel empowered and prepared with tangible tools and resources to handle those moments when she is feeling down or lacking confidence. Using activities and crafts each girl will go home with a bag of tools that can pull from at any time. We play, yet learn powerful life skills, such as: mastering positive self-talk, learning how your mind works, and the power of self-awareness. Mindfulness activities which will promote self-love, alleviate stress, stabilizing emotions, to develop calm and grounding on a daily basis. Raising each other’s energetic vibrations through fun, love, self-care & mindfulness activities.

If you are a mother who is wanting support and uninterrupted time to build upon your relationship with your daughter this is the retreat for you. In the past, we have laid out the retreat where the beginning to get our boundaries of the safe space we are in and then invite mother’s for the last day.


How can teens benefit?
These tools that Jessica shares help your daughter in everyday life. Daughters have their “stuff” and just like moms, but with mindfulness tools and being in the present moment both are able to handle difficult situations better.
Building these skills while your daughter is not having any negative thoughts, helps her be prepared for what to do when negative thoughts are present.

Virtual Group Classes

Our mentoring programs for children are based on the WISDOM System for Coaching Children from Adventures In Wisdom.

This is a story-based coaching system for children ages 7-17, with fun and engaging programs. The programs provide tools and resources to empower kids to be leaders of their own life by taking full responsibility for their journey.

While being in the program, children learn how to overcome self-doubt, manage mistakes, and deal with peer pressure so they can develop strong self-esteem and powerful self-confidence for a lifetime. Each child’s month will look different then another, every child gets their own, individual instructional discussions.

The programs are designed in such a way that children feel like they’re playing: they’re easy and fun, but also teach skills and provide steps to take action.

We learn by reading stories to spark discussion rather than talking directly about challenges or situations. This helps them feel at ease because they are not being judged or put on the spot. We call this “teaching without preaching” or “learning without lecturing”.

Awareness of Thoughts & Feelings

We learn to accept all feelings of happy, joy, sad, grieving, etc. They make us human and when we recognize them we feel less “stuck” and we are able to live more in the moment. How good is it to feel good? It’s this happiness in our hearts we can truly feel. I like to call this feeling having a “happy heart”. We will learn about: How to witness feelings: Mood Chart, Body Scan How to accept feelings How to release feelings using the 5 Senses (writing, music, etc) Our thoughts control how we feel about ourselves and others. Sometimes our thoughts happen so fast we don’t notice them, but our subconscious does and this still affects our moods. The more aware we are of our thoughts the more control we have over them and can control how we feel. We will expand on the 5 C’s of thoughts which are Catch, Check, Collect, Challenge, and Change

Building Resilience

Building resilience means helping kids develop the skills to handle the ups and downs of growing up without getting down on themselves or giving up on themselves. Developing resilience is one of the most important mindset skills for kids to learn because their ability to pick themselves up again when things don’t go their way will directly shape who they become and what they create in their lives. The good news is that resilience can be taught. At Adventures in Wisdom, we call this slaying dragons! To learn how to slay dragons, kids learn specific skills for managing mistakes, overcoming fear, moving past disappointment and failure, and handling change. The key to handling these challenges is learning to use power shifting skills, developing supportive belief systems, using positive self-talk, and practicing visualization. With this course, kids learn how to get back up again after falling down so that disappointments and failures don’t keep them from their dreams.

Color & Breathe

An interactive class focusing on breathing techniques which will be a tool for them manage their emotions better. They will become aware of how they already breathe, learn a breathing technique and then reevaluate how they are breathing at the end of the session. The benefits can result in better sleep, better focus, and better coping skills. I will post the coloring page the day of class and during class we will color together and I will guide learners to practice different breathing exercises each week. This is a great self-love class where we “take a break” from the world and stresses while we meditate by focusing our attention on our breaths and coloring. When we focus on ourselves we are giving ourselves the self-love we deserve.

Gratitude Hour

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie Gratitude is directly related to optimism which makes people happier. When we are grateful for what we have, we are able to feel the gratitude in our hearts and be aware of our feelings. This is a great tool for our mindfulness tool belts. When we feel intense emotions such as anger or frustration, we can get caught up in those emotions. Gratitude helps us handle those emotions by shifting our thoughts from anger to thankful. Learning gratitude is such an important tool. We will learn the importance of gratitude, what it means and create a gratitude journal that they will use daily. Including a breathing exercise at the end to feel the gratitude in our hearts.

Making Dreams Come True

Throughout history, humans have made the once “impossible”, possible – from electricity, to airplane flight, to cell phones, to open heart surgery – impossible dreams have become day-to-day conveniences of the modern world. And it is all the result of dreaming! Someone thought of an idea, believed in that idea, and took action to make it happen. Kids learn that no one can make their dreams come true except for them. In this package kids learn a three step process for creating a life of their dreams. They create a vision for their lives, learn how to use goal setting to take action on their vision, and learn how to use manifesting tools of visualization, affirmations, and gratitude to “program” their mind for success.
