"Restorative. Inspiring. Energizing. Honestly, this retreat was the fucking BOMB! Hands down. Incredible treats and nurturing balanced with the hardcore self work. I LOVED it. It was awesome, perfect, loving, wholesome, and delicious!"

Wild Adoration: Tuscany
with Mara Glatzel
October 8-14, 2023
You've done enough. Enough self-improvement. Enough anticipating others’ needs – often at the expense of your connection with yourself. Enough pushing, striving, and fixing. You’ve been working hard to earn the joy and rest that you ache for, but no matter how long your to-do list is, you never seem to get to taking better care of yourself.
It’s not that you don’t know how to care for yourself. You are SPECTACULARLY GOOD at taking care of things… it’s just that you’ve gotten stuck in responsibility overdrive and haven’t had the bandwidth to deal with the onslaught of everything you encounter when you slow down. (Kind of easier to just keep doing all the things, right? I feel you.)
It might even feel like if you keep working hard someone will eventually take notice, appreciate your incredible attentiveness and labor, and tell you it’s time to take a break to care for yourself, without you having to ask or make anyone else feel uncomfortable.
So here it is: You’ve done enough. You are enough.
I want to take you on vacation where the only thing on the agenda is YOU resting, playing, eating unimaginably delicious food & doing whatever the f*ck you want.
(While, also, teaching you the skills of honoring your needs and prioritizing your desires so that you never end up last on your list again.)
Hey there. I'm Mara Glatzel (she/her)
I'm an intuitive coach, and Needy podcast host who helps humans like you radically reclaim their needs in order to cultivate lives rich with sustenance and deep purpose.
I’m the author of the forthcoming book Needy: How to Advocate for Your Needs & Claim Your Sovereignty, which is coming out in February 2023.
I'm also a queer, femme wife and mother of two, recovering control freak, and a human who deeply understands the impulse to relegate my needs to the bottom of a very long to-do list in an attempt to prove my worth.
And, I was put on this planet to weave gorgeous experiences overflowing with opportunities for belonging and connection, and I would love to gather with you.
ABOUT THE RETREAT
During our glorious week together, I will be teaching daily workshops about getting to the root of what you need, honoring those needs as we experiment and play with our decisions during our time together, and prioritizing pleasure and PLAY to craft an utterly satisfying life.
Unlike retreats where you rest and play only to return home to an extremely long to-do list (and the stress that accompanies it), the skills that I will teach you during your week together will be deliciously transferrable to ensure that you are able to weave the magic of your week in Tuscany into the fabric of your daily life.
Expect :: Magical gifts. Cozy beds. Energy work. Art supplies. Beautiful field trips + experiences. Moving your limbs in a way that feels really good. Mouthwatering meals cooked just for you. Ample time with Mara. Heart-opening conversations. And naps – lots of naps.
Best of all –– you won't have to lift a finger.
Say yes to yourself – and a week of delicious replenishment & heart-opening exploration in the Tuscan countryside. Feeling nerv-cited? It’s the flutter that’s alighting in your belly: The one that has you called forward, but also consciously aware that there is change in the air. And it’s how I know you’re ready to join us.
What do YOU want & need right now?
If you’re like most of us, this question can be a little hard to answer. After all, answering it has the tendency to up-end the hard-won equilibrium we’ve found in our lives. Between work and relationships and children and societal expectations and the looming pandemic uncertainty… it’s more than understandable if it’s been a while since you’ve checked in with yourself.
Here’s the best news: You are still there, underneath the many roles and responsibilities you carry each day, just waiting for an opportunity to unfurl and take your rightful place dead smack in the center of your life.
The Wild Adoration: Tuscany retreat is your invitation to press pause on your life as you know it for one week and PLAY – with watercolors, in the sunshine, outside, with your food, in good company, and under the stars.
Feed your body with delicious meals (and desserts!) prepared just for you.
Take up space in your life and nourish yourself in a way that is so delicious, hands-on, and healing that you will be gobsmacked to realize that your needs are not a burden, but a compass guiding you.
Experience has taught me that celebration and joy can be more complicated teachers than struggle. “Simply” enjoying yourself can so often feel more difficult than chugging along, turning over stones and tackling problems.
But you? You are ready for the challenge of feeling blissful and well-resourced.
Here’s what a day on retreat may look like…
8 - 9:30 A delicious + nourishing breakfast
9:30 - 10:30 Gentle yoga with our fabulous hostess, Jane Reeves
10:30 - 12:30 Learn + give voice to your needs with Mara Glatzel
2 - 6 Personal time + group activities (Pasta making, vineyard tours or watercolor anyone?! swoon!)
Wild Adoration has been designed to be the perfect balance between support + activity.. and relaxation. I am willing to bet that your everyday life is pretty damn full to the brim. During our time together, we will take breaks, rest, get outside, move our bodies, eat snacks, and explore Tuscany! And, I will be there to support you every step of the way.
Pssst: I also have it on *high authority* that it will still be very warm during the week we are there and THE POOL WILL BE OPEN. Ahem.
