Our Story

Our story began when we met at a Green Acre spiritual retreat in Maine, and discovered our shared passion to help improve the lives of women and children. 


Over the years we’ve had countless conversations about supporting women who are navigating life’s many challenges.


Drawing on our own life experiences with loss and divorce, our hearts were inspired to create a space for women who need time to heal and move forward with a rekindled sense of joy, purpose, and passion.

Karyn's Journey

A seasoned interior designer, stylist, and entrepreneur, Karyn knows the transformative power of aesthetics and spaces. Yet, it was her personal journey that truly ignited the passion behind our wellness retreats. Karyn experienced the unimaginable loss of a child—a profound heartbreak that forever changed her perspective on life. In the midst of her grief, she found the strength to channel her pain into a purpose.


Karyn's longing to heal and to help others find solace led her to envision a place where women could rediscover their inner strength, rekindle their spirits, and find hope anew. This vision took form in our serene retreat venue, nestled amidst nature's embrace, on the beautiful island of Sri Lanka, where every detail has been meticulously crafted to offer tranquility, warmth, and a sense of belonging.

Monette's Journey

A professional certified life coach and compassionate soul, Monette shares Karyn's passion for helping women thrive. Monette's journey has been one of personal transformation and resilience, and she understands the power of holistic healing in overcoming life's challenges.


With her extensive international experience spanning Africa, North and South America, Europe, and the Middle East, Monette brings a wealth of insights and a profound ability to connect with individuals on a deep and meaningful level. Her journey through the corporate and non-profit sectors has honed her understanding of people's diverse backgrounds and life experiences.


Monette's passion lies in guiding her clients towards a balanced life, helping them clarify their personal vision and purpose, regardless of the circumstances they face. 

Together, we have forged a partnership that brings the best of both worlds to our wellness retreats: the beauty and comfort of Karyn's interior design expertise and the healing wisdom and nurturing spirit that Monette offers through a range of coaching and holistic wellness practices.

And more than anything - we want you to feel better and love your life.

Karyn  and  Monette
