Since moving to Santa Cruz in 2020, I have fallen madly in love and I am so honored to invite you to this cozy coastal town that I call home. 

Each day has been intentionally curated to inspire creativity, mindset shifts, and breakthroughs in both your personal and business worlds.

Also, total relaxation, and FUN!

My team and I will be guiding you and your business with workshops, writing sessions, rituals and ceremonies to drop in with yourself and your business. 

In addition to our workshops, we’ll take you forest bathing in the Redwoods, hiking along the Pacific coastline, with evening sound healing, 1:1 Reiki sessions, nourishing meals prepared by local chefs, and more… 

This will be my first offering as a new mom and I cannot think of a better way to start 2023.

“This retreat was beyond anything I could have imagined. Every detail was considered and implemented with intention and care. From the communication leading up to, to the incredible food, the people involved, the workshops featured, and the daily schedules. It truly allowed me to be present with the experience and everyone there in a way that was so natural and needed. 

Krista and her entire team made me feel so welcome and loved from the moment I arrived. I left feeling incredibly inspired, rejuvenated, and with so much clarity on where I want to go in my business.

An experience I’ll honor forever.”
