"To be honest, I'm not really a "retreat" kind of gal, but I am so glad I decided to take a risk and attended the Shine Retreat.

WOW! What an amazing experience hosted by two incredible and kind women, Mari & Anna.

I felt so accepted and included in the group activities and workshops, but also enjoyed having some relaxing "me" time as well. 

I left the weekend with a sense of renewal and focus on my life and dreams.  I look forward to the next Shine Retreat and will be sharing with other women I care about!"

~ Mary N., 2017 Shine Attendee

Meet Your Hosts:



We are Anna Osborn (in the green) and Mari A. Lee (in the blue), and we are so glad you are here! We are both busy working women and clinical therapists who know what it is like to juggle career, family, and the every day stressors that women face.

Supporting women is what inspired us to create "The Shine Women's Retreat" - for women like us and like you who need a chance to retreat, fill their cup, have fun, focus on self care for a weekend, connect with other kind and supportive women, and relax, rejuvenate and refresh in a beautiful and comfortable zero stress setting. 

Ladies, if you have been needing a little break to put yourself on the top of your "to do" list for a change, to add some nurturing in your routine, we invite you to join us and the other wonderful women who attend Shine for a warm and welcoming weekend of self care in lovely Laguna Beach in the fall of 2019.

Let's put our toes in the sand, and get inspired again! 

Mari & Anna 

We would love to have you join us for the
