Retreats for Highly Sensitive People and Introverts

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go on a retreat to some magical location where you could deeply connect with yourself and forge lifelong relationships with likeminded people? Then did you immediately wonder if it might feel a little overwhelming to you as an introvert or highly sensitive person?

As an HSP introvert who loves travel and new experiences, I have long had my eye on Melissa Renzi’s retreats, which are specifically designed for people like me—and I’m guessing a lot of you.

In addition to being a Tiny Buddha contributor and this month’s site sponsor, Melissa is a licensed social worker, certified trauma-informed yoga teacher, and ecotherapy guide.

Her mission is to empower HSPs to see their sensitivity as a gift and help them harness their strengths to make a positive difference in the world. She’s led more than twenty retreats across seven countries, helping hundreds of people do just that.

If you’re itching for a little adventure and excitement and you’d like to connect with people who truly get you, because they’re just like you, one of Melissa’s retreats could be just what you need.

Every retreat offers downtime for rest and solo exploration, small group activities for intimate connection, and nurturing daily practices, like yoga and nature-based arts. Melissa also sets agreements with all participants so that everyone can participate in the way that feels best for them, without social pressure.

If you’re ready to hit the road ASAP, you might want to sign up for her upcoming Peru retreat (April 19th-27th), which has one last-minute spot.

Registration for her North Carolina retreat (June 5th-10th) closes this Friday.

During this six-day/five-night immersive nature retreat, you’ll stay at an eco-minded retreat center set upon sixty-three acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains, just outside of Asheville.

Each day will offer a mix of embodied movement, restorative yoga, and ecotherapy. Through nature-based expressive arts, you’ll give expression to emotions, engage in creative play, converse with nature allies, and explore ways to steward our local ecosystems.

Some of her other upcoming retreat destinations include Portugal, Guatemala, and Costa Rica.
