Why and How to Retreat with Jim Eastburn

What happens when we step away from our lives for a few hours, days or weeks? Retreating¬† is one of the best and oldest tools for wellness. It’s how we restore and reclaim ourselves. This week, Kristen and her guest, Jim Eastburn (Corporate Director of Transformational Experiences at Canyon Ranch), take a deep dive into all things retreating, including how to design a retreat, the many benefits, and how we can build mini-retreats into the everyday living of our lives.
