Frientimacy and Deeper Connections Tools for Lifelong Health & Happiness


With more than 60% of us feeling lonely on a regular basis, the way we live our lives leaves us feeling unseen and unsupported. We crave more meaningful relationships, we want to be able to rely on people, and we desire to be around people who help us feel encouraged and affirmed.

Join friendship expert and author Shasta Nelson for a weekend retreat and take the next step in meeting the very human need we all have for meaningful relationships. Shasta leads a popular, warm, and fun program designed to help you assess your friendship desires and needs. Through assessments, learning, and community, you will learn how to:

  • Identify the relationships you need in your life right now.
  • Examine how you show up in your current friendships.
  • Evaluate your sense of connectedness to others so you can identify the best way forward.
  • Build long-lasting, substantial, and fulfilling relationships.

Return home inspired and hopeful to take the steps that have the best likelihood of creating a more connected life.
