Holistic Travel & Wellness

"Vitally, the human race is dying. It is like a great uprooted tree, with its roots in the air. We must plant ourselves again in the universe.”
~D.H. Lawrence

"No matter where you are from on Earth, no being owns any thing, but their hOMe, in the body. Root down deep."
~Audrey Abshire



"No BODY owns any THING, but their hOMe, interconnected, naturally, rooted, into SOURCE.

Live consciously, naturally, YOU." ~AA

Rooted Retreats are for those wanting to step into their inner peace, love and commitment to the true self through the practice of yoga and adventures by balancing the mind, heart and soul. From self ventures to community ventures, you will discover an open awareness with inner and outer comfort body experiences, coming hOMe to your senses, and deep rooted connections throughout your retreat experience.  A transformation takes place once you commit to your self and follow your heart, without any distractions (in nature), feeling rooted down deep into SOURCE. Awaken the spirit inside, the adventurous sense, so that the unconscious mind, the universal soul, can guide you closer to YOU.
Dare to root down deep on retreat?

"Truly grateful to have the safety you offered in traveling the first time out of country. I am so grateful for the opportunity of being so immersed in nature and surrounded by women."

-Taya Brady

What was your favorite part about the retreat?

"How primitive and exposed we were to the elements I really enjoyed this local experience. The food the ecolodge and the adventures each day. I think we also had a perfect amount of downtime. The biggest lesson was respect for different cultures and environments and appreciating the differences in people and our individual ways of life.Thank you Audrey, you didn't have to share Costa Rica's best kept secret with us but you did and I'm forever grateful for that."

-Hannah Bissett

What was the biggest lesson you learned?
"Moving my body and eating healthy food and being in the sun created a sense of calm and peace as well as energy that I’ve been lacking." -Hannah Salleee

What is something that surprised you that you least expected?
"I didn’t expect to get so close to the other girls and allow myself to open up. Staying all together was very special. The reading of taro cards, cacao ceremony, eating together, journaling and discussing allowed us all to be vulnerable and emotional around each other. Which is hard to do in every day life. Was absolutely worth my time and energy. It was rejuvenating, emotional (positive emotions), allowed me to connect with new people, feel grounded and connected to nature. My body felt so good walking, being in the ocean, and eating yummy healthy food. Such an amazing trip."-Eleanore O'Neill

What was your favorite part about the retreat?
"I loved the waterfall swim and the hike to the waterfall. It was nice to not be in the sun and it allowed us to see different animals and wildlife. I LOVED the cacao ceremony, so amazing Kayak excursion was my favorite ocean activity 
I also really loved and needed the down time. Sitting in the cold pool, reading my book. Just sitting and being quiet listening to the beach and the jungle  The restorative yoga class was so relaxing and I felt so stretched and zen after." -Eleanore O'Neill 


What was your favorite part about the retreat?

"The yoga sessions were incredibly impactful for me. They helped me find a sense of inner peace and relaxation that I hadn't experienced in a long time. I found the retreat scheudle to be well-planned and the timing to be appropriate for each activity. I believe the retreat provided great vlaue for the cost. The quality of the program, accommodations, and overall experience justified the price." -Ashlee Reaves

What was the biggest lesson you learned?

"Letting go... learning to just let life come and enjoy the journey."-Ashlee Reaves

Melissa Boals, Participant


The trip was great, I was pleasantly surprised and am so happy I was able to go. Traveling alone can be daunting, but the group of woman that came together were truly inspiring and I really loved everyone’s company. Would love to do a reunion retreat to see everyone again!



Whether you’re looking to get away from the stresses of daily life or searching for tropical experiences- This Audventure retreat will provide you with so many opportunities to unplug and unwind, to reconnect with yourself, others, and nature. It’s a truly multidimensional trip. I learned SO much. I would highly recommend it!



To me, this was a once-in-a-lifetime trip. Audrey provided such a unique experience, with a wide variety of activities and experiences, through the lens of a local, and with the collaboration of an outstanding resort. It was an amazing opportunity to slow down, reflect, and exercise my mind and body and live ‘pura vida’ in spectacular Costa Rica!
