You're a coach, guide, mentor, soul-sleuth...
often so busy holding up the world, your people, and vision -
that two things too often get lost in the mix:
1) Your own support, healing & safety.
2) Authentic content creation to build your brand.
That’s where the Coaches Reset Retreat comes in -
a literal nervous system reset, where you are held & seen by an incredible support team in a picturesque settings -
So you can go from "I'm a burn-out boss bae, totally at capacity,"
back to energized, focused & loving to serve your truth & mission in the world.
The Coaches Reset Retreat is equal parts
in-water somatics sessions
cathartic portraiture -
led by a team of female facilitators & artists.
As a somatic therapist & also internationally-published underwater artist,
here's what my healing framework allows me to travel the world and self-express as ;)

And I see that same unique spark of self-expression,
of voice, of purpose, vision & truth, in you, and invite you to consider just how much the world needs your voice, your gifts, your presence, attunement and liberated body-mind -
- now more than ever.
That's why: I'm unwaveringly dedicated to supporting conscious coaches integrate trauma, find safety and permission, in the body, in order to live their truth -
- liberating themselves from their predictable past, in order to take strides into their limitless future...
....through the deep nervous system support in-person ...
AND incredibly opportunities for 1:1 creative branding shoots.
The retreat provides authentic 1:1 content opportunities which you can use for your socials, web & branding.
Taking images artistically in beautiful surroundings,
when you are relaxed, recharged & most your Self is the best way
to get media worth sharing online that truly represents your brand.
(*Each coach gets two 60-90 min shoot sessions in a variety of gorgeous settings - option for high-end portrait (less edit provisions package) or social video reel/ image content (higher volume content package). Either are included; coaches choice.)
When women come together by the water,... wonder happens. This is an opportunity to trust your body, make art, re-encode safety & affirm that healing & accessing your authentic Self is the most important priority for your business to succeed.
This trauma-informed experience ensures...Your return to your Self, to the knowing of safety and security in your bones, as an unshakeable truth.Water, with its in-womb-like qualities provides one of the most secure neurosensory experiences of safety we can get & helps the body process & integrate stored emotion.

your own portraits
In this immersive capacity-building
retreat in Costa Rica, you'll...
Cathartic portraiture opportunities; in individual & group photo sessions, that playfully capture the new sense of authentic Self you are coming into communion with throughout the retreat experience.
Embodied nervous system (SE) foundations to better operate in coherent allyship with your nervous system works (ie. your own human operating system).
Deep somatic release & nervous system stabilization using in-water therapy & sound healing.
The water is the one place you can infinitely pour whatever you‘re carrying and this immersion is designed for you to set an intention, let go, release & actually experience a shift.
Compassionate inquiry techniques for trauma exploration & dynamic in-person facilitation of somatic tools to anchor in nervous system shifts.
WHO THIS IS FOR
The feeling of relating with water is at once meditative and exhilarating; evoking primal memories of safety in the fluid environment of our mother’s womb.
Water also often feels cleansing and renewing in deep ritualistic, almost indescribable ways and immediately allows the cortical defenses of our egoic mind to let go as we explore deeper aspects of our Selves and our body’s stored trauma imprints within a crystallis of profound safety.
This retreat is for all beings looking to:
Find deeper levels of safety & trust in their body & in relating to others & the world.
Feel more open to connection & relating securely attached.
Activate healing & repair & understand how to help the body shift into a regulated, homeostasis place (critical for those experiencing autoimmune & physical disease).
Embody their truth more effortlessly & embrace your nervous system more organically.
Reclaim inner safety & resiliency to move trauma, loss, grief & other unprocessed experiences

Christine Ren, Somatic Therapist/ Coach
Drawing from an eclectic background of undergraduate and Master's degrees in pre-med and anthropological disciplines, a former professional career as a dance performer and decade of consulting work with startups in Silicon Valley,
I facilitate nervous system-led upgrades remotely with clients 1-on-1 and in small groups, as well work locally guiding in-water somatic experiencing sessions for clients with higher trauma burdens in the body that need deep safety re-stabilizing in order to heal.
As a somatic therapist/ coach, I'm in the business of helping conscious women live their truth & express their gifts -
by integrating trauma & limiting stories through somatic coherence therapy, which is a type of both and intersectional work of healing of the mind’s story (meaning and context its made),
and the body’s memory (somatic imprint/ physiology, that remains in the body and nervous system from various experiences, threats and woundings).
