OCTOBER 1 - 4, 2024

Experience the healing power of community

We love our online community, but when we get to spend time together sharing, laughing, eating, exploring, and healing, it’s extra, extra special. We hope you’ll give yourself the gift of connection and so much more and join us for this incredible event.

Rest Yourself River Ranch

connection

There is nothing like making personal connections with other moms who get it. No small talk, no competition, no shame or embarrassment. You'll be with your people and it feels so good.

restoration

There's a reason it's called Restoration Mom - that's what you'll feel when you relax in your cozy room, eat delicious food (that you don't have to cook or clean up!) and care for yourself.

fun

Thinking a retreat like this might be sad? Ya'll don't have to worry about that. We laugh and leave the worries and troubles at home for four incredible days. If you suddenly hear an outburst of laughter, that will probably be us.

The details

Date & Location

Your retreat experience begins Tuesday, October 1, and wraps up Friday morning, October 4, in Mineral Wells, Texas. The closest airport is Dallas-Ft. Worth (DFW), which is approximately an hour and a half from the Ranch. You'll need to be at the Ranch no later than 4 pm when our magical time together commences.

In addition to the magic of spending four days and three nights with the coolest moms on earth, your retreat experience includes lodging, all meals, snacks, group activities, and some special goodies. Transportation to and from the retreat venue is the responsibility of each guest.

Room Options

There are two rooming options at the Ranch; choose from a private suite, or make a new friend in a shared room with two twin beds and private bathroom (see photos above.)

As a nonprofit organization, we work hard to keep our retreat pricing accessible. We intend to allow as many mamas as possible to focus on your healing and well-being. Registration options range from $1,200 - $2,400 for the 2024 retreat, and generous payment plans are available. (the payment plan is available until 2/29, then only single payments can be accepted.)

Frequently Asked Questions

Things you might wonder about...

What's the cancellation policy ?

Cancellations received by May 1, 2024, will be eligible for a refund minus a 5% processing fee. Cancellations received by June 1, 2024, will be eligible for a 50% refund minus a 5% processing fee. We aren’t able to provide any refunds after June 2, 2024.

Which airport is closest ?

The closest airport to the Rest Yourself Ranch is Dallas Fort Worth (DFW). From there, the Ranch is approximately 1.5 hours away by car. Past retreat moms have found that carpooling together from the airport isn’t just efficient but also a fun way to make new friends.

What if I don't know anyone going? Will it be awkward ?

This is a great question, and the answer is no. You’ll arrive as ‘Zoom’ friends and leave as sisters – our mutual experience with our kids provides instant bonding and appreciation for each other. It’s quite amazing how close we get so quickly.

Will I have free time ?

Yes! We know you may need time to decompress, sleep, and do your own thing. You’ll have plenty of time to chat with new and old friends, explore the area – or do whatever your heart desires.

How does room sharing work ?

If you’d like to come to the retreat and share a room but don’t know someone to share with, not a problem! When you register you’ll let us know you’re ready to make a new friend and we’ll pair you with another incredible mom who also wants a roomie.

What if I can't pay for it right now ?

We know there are lots of demands on your budget, so we offer a six-month payment plan option which allows you to spread out the investment. It’s like putting your retreat experience on layaway. You’ll see the payment plan option when you click to register. If you’re unable to attend due to financial need, please submit a scholarship application here.

What about dietary needs ?

Don’t worry about this one! We make sure your dietary needs are taken care of because a well-nourished mom is a much happier mom. You’ll send us any dietary restrictions or requests prior to arrival so your tummy will be as full as your heart.
