The Positive Thread Wellness Retreat!


 Garner State Park 


On this one night retreat  we are partnering with  Heather McConochie the owner of The Positive Thread- a prominent health coaching practice based in Austin, Texas. 

Sample education workshops and  activities include: 

  •  How the outdoors heals our brains for optimal function
  •  How outdoor group experiences lead to positive, meaningful collaboration
  •  Meditation by the beautiful Frio River 
  •  Guided journaling activities 
  • Q and A with Cristina about camping/hiking wellness
  • Q and A with Heather about food and wellness

During your  one night two day experience you will have the opportunity to hike, eat fresh food on rugs, meditate by the river and participate in some guided activities by Heather and Cristina . Your gourmet menu will be provided by Curcuma and Heather herself. Each individual has the opportunity to bring their own tent if they want to sleep alone, or they can stay in one of our spacious tents provided by Black Diamond. 

Every small detail has been taken care of. All you need to do is show up ready for one of the best outdoor weekends of your life!

What if I've never hiked or camped?

No worries at all! Part of our service is to carefully guide you along in this outdoor experience. You will have two very experienced hikers and campers to assist you with any questions or concerns. 

How will we get to our camp site?

Once we have our final numbers, we will send out an email two weeks before giving out the specific campsite and timing information. If you are flying in from out of town, you will be given specific directions. If you are coming from Austin, we will provide caravan logistics. 

Are there bathrooms?

Yes! You will have a public restroom within walking distance of campsite

Can I bring my pet or children?

While we do love dogs and children, we feel that participants will benefit as a group without any animals or children present. 

What if it rains?

We can never control Mother Nature! If it happens to rain, the retreat will still happen and we will make necessary adjustments. However, safety is our number one priority so if we feel from weather reports that there is any serious weather coming, we will make alternations.
