Travel can do many things. It can open you up to places and experiences you’ve never dreamed of, expose you to new and creative ways of thinking and living, and create memories that will last a lifetime. Travel can also take you within the depths of yourself and free you from chains you didn’t even know were holding you down.

Created but Curvy, Curly, Conscious Founder Shelah Marie, The Unruly Retreat may seem like just another women’s travel group jetting off to exotic locales for a weekend of formation selfies, twerk sessions and testing out their ’99 to the 2000 knees – and on the surface it is. Guests of the retreat come together to live their best unruly lives with zero apologies. But don’t be fooled, there’s more to this than meets the eye.

 Unruly allows women a truly safe space to be honored, to experience joy, and to heal.

The retreat isn’t just about being on your worst behavior. It’s also about stepping outside of the boundaries of what constitutes “good womanhood,” disrupting the status quo, and being ‘unruly’ as you redefine and take back control of your life. In between turn-ups the women form a sisterhood that allows them to share their pains, their joys and their truths with one another in a safe and sacred space. They begin the work of healing and releasing thoughts and behaviors that are holding them back from living their best and most authentic lives. And according to Shelah Marie, that’s what makes The Unruly Retreat so special.

“You can easily find a retreat that’s going to have a little turn-up, you can easily find a retreat that’s healing-centric — but Unruly is a little namaste and a little Henny. It’s a unique blend of fun and self-work in a nonjudgemental space. We don’t take ourselves or the work too seriously, which lightens the load and gives guests the space to engage in a way that’s comfortable for them. Our retreats are one-of-a-kind and women routinely say they have never been to anything like it before or since,” she says.

With the New Year approaching there’s no better time than now to start thinking about making changes to your life, and perhaps The Unruly Retreat is the place to start.
