Friday, October 27

Welcome to wine country! We have a fun icebreaker event planned followed by a vision board session like no other. Then, get cozy and comfortable in your room and be ready for the morning.

Saturday, October 28

Prepare for a full day of wellness empowerment. We will start bright and early with a Labrynth meditation walk led by Marcia Leftwich, also known as our Pitaiyo instructor for our Sedona retreat. 

Session 1 - Digestion and smoothies: When we approach and pass the age of 40, our digestive enzymes begin to decrease, causing digestion to become more laborious. This session will cover the what, how and why of the green smoothie craze.

Session 2 - The mind body connection: Have you been hearing a lot about inflammation? Have you noticed the rise in autoimmune diseases? This class will explore the connection between what you think and the affect it has on your body, both negative and positive. Yes, you do have the power to create or avoid disease, probably much more than you realize.

Session 3 - A More Plant Based Life: We will explore the benefits of a plant based diet and how to get started, or enhance your plant cooking skills. Lunch will be served. You'll leave this session with some goodies to take home too!

Take a break and enjoy yourself! There will be enough time for a spa visit or whatever you like. 

Session 4 - The Spice of Life: My dear friend and public health professional, Kami, will bless us with an amazing Indian cooking session while I share the many benefits of herbs and spices to enhance flavors and health. Dinner will be served.

Sunday, October 29

The morning will be open for you to sleep in, visit the spa, or explore Calistoga. This time is also set aside for a hot air balloon ride for those who wish to partake. Simply divine.

We will gather for an amazing wine education session. Learn to taste wine properly, how to pair with foods to enhance flavors, and discover the health benefits of wine as well. When in wine country, right?

The afternoon is open for you to enjoy the spa, the hot mineral pools, enjoy the little shops of Calistoga, or visit neighboring cities for endless wine tasting using your newly acquired skills. Your choice.

Nothing could be finer than a Well Diva Dinner, except a Well Diva Dinner in Wine Country. Enjoy an elegent soiree with the Divas. As always, this is the "fly" part of the weekend, your opportunity to get all glammed up with someplace to go.

Monday, October 30

We'll take some time to take a few pics, share a few last laughs and say our goodbyes. No hurry, as check out isn't until noon.

All payments are non-refundable - Trip insurance is recommended. Contact Ahesha, our travel agent at ateamcommunications@gmail.com.



"Realize that all of this could not have been made possible without your wonderful vision and plan, so "Thank You!!" I look forward to attending more events in the future!"

Well Diva Weekend Sedona was amazing. Read about it here.  

Frequently asked questions...

What happens if I'm unable to attend after I have registered? Due to the negotiated group rate, all payments are nonrefundable. However trip insurance is an option.

I don't drink wine. Should I still register? Absolutely! There are a limited number of spa treatments included in the registration price lieu of the wine event for those who do not drink alcohol. Email me for details. renee@welldiva.com

Should I purchase trip insurance? I highly recommend it. If for some reason you are unable to make the trip, your insurance may be able to cover your expenses. Please email our travel agent Ahesha for details. ateamcommunications@gmail.com

How many guests to a room? No more than two guests to a room is the recommendation, as this is an opportunity for you to relax and unwind. That will be difficult to do with more than 2 in a room. Also there is an extra charge for each additional guest.

Are children welcome? This is an adult only event, and an opportunity for you to focus on you, without your children.

Can you hold a spot for me? Due to the small size of the group I cannot hold a space for anyone. Your deposit will guarantee your space.

How will I get from the airport to the hotel? A rental car is recommended. Or, once you have booked your airline ticket, mention that you are looking to share a ride in the Facebook group so that you can connect with other ladies traveling from the same airport around the same time. Airport transfers are not included in your registration fee, and are not guaranteed, but may cost less if sharing a ride.

Which airport should I fly into? Sacramento, Oakland or San Francisco are all about an hour and a half to two hours from Calistoga by car.

Is this a detox retreat? No. It is a wellness weekend, meaning that we will focus on gaining healthy habits that we can incorporate into a healthy lifestyle. We will learn about healthy cooking but will not be restricting our diet to detox foods during the weekend.

About Napa Valley (courtesy of napavalley.com):

"More than 400 wineries dot the fertile soils of Napa Valley, one of the world’s premier viticultural regions. But wine, as visitors quickly discover, is only the beginning. Stay in lavish resorts, charming bed & breakfasts or modern hotels. Find top-rated chefs at scores of restaurants who work alongside the farmers who tend this land. Take a hot air balloon ride or taste the bounty of the valley on a wine tour. Whatever your pleasure, the result is something understated and exceptional. Welcome to Napa Valley."



The main cities in Napa Valley include Napa, Yountville, Rutherford, St. Helena, and Calistoga. Our stay will be in Calistoga, known for its hot mineral spring pools, therapeutic mud baths, spas and wine. This intimate tour of Napa Valley will be incredibly special, as you will be in the presence of an amazing group of ladies. We will attempt to recreate the magic of Sedona (no promises) but to even come close will be an experience not to be missed. I look forward to hosting you in one of my most favorite places in the world.
