Transformational Retreat For

Trauma healing | Anxiety | Chronic Pain | Burn-out| Relationship stress | Trust Issues | Self-sabotage


This retreat is much more than a getaway.
It's an immersive experience focused on reclaiming your inner wisdom through Inner Child Healing and Ancestral Healing work.
Join a community of kindred spirits—individuals who, like you, are seeking to live fully and embrace their uniqueness.
You know you're destined for more than the Standard Game of Success that's loaded with stress, self-sabotage, and repeating cycles that wear you down. It's your turn for a transformation.

Trying to break free from the relentless cycle of living for everyone else is exhausting. 

Tirelessly doing what's deemed "right" only to be left burnt-out, under-appreciated, and under-loved is not working for you.

It's a disheartening moment when the person staring back at you in the mirror feels like a shell of the person you know you can be.

That's exactly why a transformational healing retreat is so important for you now.

So you can reclaim your personal power, rise into the person you truly are—strong, intuitive, fiercely fun, and wild-hearted in your passion.


So If  You Are

A brave, adventurous woman who wants her light to return, but has been dragged down by people-pleasing and perfectionism.​


A mother, sister, or daughter, and friend who wants to be more open, but finds it hard to connect and share love and joy with ease. 


A passionate service-minded individual who loves making positive impact in her community, but feels weird, different, and doubts what she brings to the table.


Experiencing chronic pain in your lower back, hips, shoulders or neck, tired of feeling heavy each and every day and wanting to have your playfulness back.


Yearning for clarity on how to calm your anxiety, heal your trauma, and recover your intuitive wisdom so you can move towards what is right for you in life. 


Craving a community that supports you, respects you, and nurtures you rather than judges you or makes you feel drained. 

You're In the Right Place

This was my first yoga retreat, and I found everything in it non-threatening.

It was mentally & physically enlightening.

-Kiki W.

This was life-changing. 

I've been on several retreats and this one gave me a breakthrough I've never experienced before.

Mountain Path

Where You're Going

Joyful Journey Hot Springs, located in the San Luis Valley of Colorado, is a small, simple and very calming healing site.


While it has very few frills, this place draws tens of thousands of people each year because of its energy.


From the time of the first indigenous tribes that inhabited the San Luis valley, these hot springs have been a space where weapons are laid down so all can gather to receive personal guidance and clarity.

This non-violent, nurturing, and transformative sense of community is still palpable today as you walk throughout the property. 

While Joyful Journey accommodations are simple, Embrace Your Essence Retreats takes great care to provide you luxury wellness treats, gourmet food, transformative personal guidance from Parinaz, and once in a lifetime experiences


Embrace Your Essence retreats at Joyful Journey Hot Springs are truly magical. They will allow you to escape your norms and receive the calm, clarity, and healing you need.

Parinaz's mother is the private chef for this retreat.


She has over 30 years of professional chef experience. She's catered everything from retreats to birthdays to weddings for over 350 people, and has a talent of making each meal feel like a close, intimate family gathering.

Parinaz's mom cooks a variety of dishes from different cuisines. On this retreat, she will be honoring the family's Persian roots by preparing traditional Persian breakfast on the final morning and traditional dishes for the final dinner.

Hey there ! 

I know it can be hard finding the time for rest & self-care
when there are always other things on your mind or you’re just too tired from life.


That's exactly why I created this retreat...  
Because sometimes, all we need is a little break from the norm
so we can recharge and connect with others
who understand what it means to live a balanced life.


You’ll spend the weekend surrounded by the natural beauty of Colorado’s Sangre De Cristo mountains.

You’ll wake up to crisp, clean air each day and
the peaceful silence of this sanctuary will fill you with relaxation and
