This is just one of those life - changing events, real growth and joy. The setting and the program and food was all so so SOULICIOUS

- Scott Eisemann

This retreat was an amazing experience to say the least. I discovered more about myself in three days then I have my entire life. The workshops were thought provoking and directed beautifully by Vita. Being surrounded by nature on the stunning grounds, where the retreat was hosted, was a highlight of the weekend. Between yoga, Groove dance and enlightening conversations ... I was exercised through body and mind. I loved my experience and hope to return for another retreat with Vita soon.

"The food was delicious"

"It was effective & powerful"

The Embrace You, Soulicious Retreat put on by the Happiness Goddess, Vita Rubino was an experience I will cherish in my heart for many years to come. It was a time away from the busyness of life to be accepted, supported and uplifted by a group of like minded people and of course The Happiness Goddess who infused the retreat experience with so much loving and healing energy. The feelings of true heartfelt connection was beautiful and moving. It was a safe space for me to release old and damaging beliefs I was carrying about myself and to expand into a more lighthearted way of being. Upon returning back into my every day life from this experience I have felt a fierce motivation for the changes that needed to take place in order for my life to move forward with courage, strength and confidence. This powerful weekend experience grounded me into nature, cleared my mind of chatter and helped me create new healthy mindful habits for my every day life. Thank you Vita Rubino for taking this leap of faith and creating a truly unique and soul inspiring retreat weekend.
