I’m super excited to introduce today’s guest, and the co-host of the upcoming Shine Retreat for Women, Mari Lee. Mari and I will be talking not only about the work that Mari does, helping support women to heal and grow, but also about The Shine Retreat, and how it’s based on filling your own cup, of restoration, connection, and most importantly, giving yourself permission to have fun. You are invited to join us, both here on the podcast, and at the Retreat. We hope to see you!

Lee!! 

Show Highlights:

  • Mari works with women whose worlds have just been shattered.

  • Women have been so focused on taking care of someone else that they have forgotten how to take care of themselves.

  • As women, we’ve come to accept phrases like, “What a wonder woman you are, I want to be just like you when I grow up!”, “How do you find hours in the day to do all that you do, you just blow me away!” as compliments, but if we are not making time each day for some self-care, then we are setting ourselves up for crises.

  • Learning how to manage others’ expectations and knowing, naming, and maintaining boundaries is so important, and these are things that Mari teaches.

  • Mari and Anna discuss the shaming messages we get around self-care.

  • Mari explains FOG - Fear, Obligation, and Guilt.

  • We all do self-care differently, and need to lift each other up. This is what you’ll find at The Shine Retreat.

  • Both Mari and Anna divulge their personal insights into how they each know they’re needing some self-care.

  • The Shine Retreat is a place for a small group of women to come together and fully immerse themselves in taking a moment and pushing the pause button and asking themselves what they need.

  • We sometimes struggle to articulate our needs.

  • Mari shares some surprises to expect from the retreat - such as a workshop on the beach. Under the stars. And in your PJ’s!

  • Women find a way to release guilt, shame, pain, responsibility, and leave with insight, knowledge, and tools, and a tribe of women.

  • Open invitation to the Retreat. We can’t WAIT to meet you!!
