Pack your bags, book your ticket, and let us do the rest.

Our lives are overwhelmed with technology, information and stimulation excesses, rapid social and cultural shifts, and a sense of being adrift and out-of-balance. In the midst of this, there seems to be a profound disconnect from our own self-realization.

You will leave this week with the wisdom of how to keep this balance in your day-to-day life regardless of what is coming at you.

The simplicity of this retreat is in the flow. Step into the present moment of pure happiness and grace throughout your stay. Connect with your inner guidance and an intuitive knowing to just be, and flow with the possibilities of space that engulf you. Come explore this state of purity within you, release what you don’t need, and step into a deep knowing.

“Morning yoga on the beach, surfing, and yoga with breathtaking sunsets, the activities were immersive. The energy was phenomenal and transformative. Peggy was an incredible host and every little detail was mind-blowing and took me out of reality – which is where I needed to go! I felt completely relaxed, peaceful, and at home with the wonderful group of people and I can’t wait to attend another Balance Within Retreat.  I left balanced, peaceful and happy.  I now know how to keep this balance within my world. This retreat was truly life-changing”
