Women Holding Hands

UNA-pologetically® Retreats

Empowerment through self-love awaits you.


Hosted by
Mary Ann Francis LMFT

Are you seeking a nurturing environment to explore self-love and empowerment?  You've come to the right place.  If you want to experience a sense of freedom, wellness, build confidence with the other like-minded women, then join us.

Why Retreats?

As a licensed therapist, I've learned that individual therapy can be a segue into healing and growth.  It helps to provide information, allows someone to gain awareness into behaviors and thought patterns that they may not have known existed.

What I have found hosting and facilitating retreats, are that they are a powerful catalyst for personal transformation.  It offers a dynamic, hands-on, and intensive experience that propels growth and self-discovery.  The group format of a retreat fosters a sense of community and shared wisdom, igniting profound insights and breakthroughs.  By immersing oneself in structured activities and immersive learning, participants can unleash their potential and achieve significant personal growth in a shorter, more impactful timeframe.  It allows for you to find your tribe, feel connected to others as well as finding parts of yourself you thought were lost, or just discovered.

After hosting and facilitating my first women's retreat in 2021 I realized with my mental health background, I can help empower women and bring a transformative experience to life.  So that's when I created UNA-pologetically® The Self-Love Movement.

Day 1 - Welcome

The Day of arrival enjoy some time to relax.  We will spend the evening mingling, interacting with ice breakers, and setting our intentions for the remainder of the retreat.  

Day 3 - Intentional Rising &
In-house Spa Day

We will spend the day at the house as we focus on rising with intention.  Let's start off the morning with a light breakfast and immerse ourselves in a sound healing session by or in the pool.  Listen as your body embraces the vibrations that flow through the crisp air.  

Then we continue with indulging in some self-care activities that include massages and facials.  

There will be a short reflective workshop before you get to enjoy the rest of your day. 

Day 2 - Meditation & Release

Envision yourself surrounded by a rainforest, feeling the natural energy of nature.  Immerse yourself in a Reiki -chakra meditation unblocking your chakras as you listen to the beating drums of the congos echoing throughout the forest.  The natural beauty and sounds of being in El Yunque.  

Later on - participate in a beach release, as you partake in an Unapologetically Me® ceremony with your new tribe.  Lock this into your core memory as you end your day.

Day 4 - La Cultura Boriken

Part of a retreat is spending some time understanding some of the roots of the culture.  This last day you will participate in the Boriken culture by visiting Calle Cerra Art walk; taking a Bomba Class Lesson, visiting Los Hermanos, and Samuel-Lind Afro-Boriken Artist.  

This day whines down with a bon-fire ceremony at the beach, and end with a private dinner with a chef.

Day 5 - Farewell

We begin the day early so we can spend the morning having last day reflections over breakfast.  Embracing and empowering one another as we continue back into the journey of our lives, taking with you the strength to continue to work on self-love.
