What is the Healing Oasis Retreat?
This is an intimate, exclusive experience (limited to maximum of 15 guests) of healing and transformation at the iconic Lido Palms in Desert Hot Springs, CA.
Imagine spending three nights and four days in a serene desert setting, with Peggy's encouraging instruction in daily yoga, meditation, water exercise, nutrition and healing. (You may choose to participate as much as you like -- or simply spend time at your leisure resting and relaxing in the sparkling clear healing mineral pools.)
Every single detail is taken care of for you. You simply show up in comfy clothes and get ready to leave your everyday life behind as you relax, release and let go of whatever has been holding you back from living a life filled with peace and joy.
Who is the Healing Oasis Retreat for?
Ladies of all ages, this retreat is designed exclusively for you.
For many of our guests, this is their first retreat experience.
All levels, ages and health conditions are welcomed. All activities are optional.
"I came to meet new people and try something different. I was ready to make some positive changes in my life, and this retreat was the catalyst. I feel ready now!" ~ Nancy S.
"I've never been on a retreat before, but I trust Peggy and I knew she would create something amazing -- and she did!" Pam K.
What is a typical day like at the Healing Oasis Retreat?
You can sleep in if you like -- or get up early to watch the desert put on a spectacular sunrise show.
Fresh hot coffee, Peggy's signature "Hot Lemony" and a lovingly prepared breakfast by our personal, health-conscious chef starts the day.
You have the opportunity to engage in Peggy's suggestions for morning reflection, growth and renewal while you share and mingle with the other ladies, getting to know each other better.
Late morning offers you the chance for a refreshing, invigorating water exercise class led by Peggy. No swimming experience is needed for this fun, lively class that is a favorite with all guests!
Bonus: because we're doing the water exercise in the warm natural mineral water pool, no one sees your figure -- so you don't need to be embarrassed by wearing a bathing suit! You can wrap yourself in the fluffy, white lounge robe poolside for comfort.
A freshly prepared, delicious and nourishing lunch is prepared with love, and we enjoy a communal meal at a relaxed, peaceful pace. There are no dishes to wash, nothing to put away -- every detail is taken care of for you.
After lunch you have time to rest and relax at your leisure.
Mid-afternoons you are invited to Peggy's "DIY" activities where you learn to prepare unique, natural healing products such as facial scrubs, healthy hair tonics, natural toothpaste and other fun and creative concoctions. This hands-on experience is a highlight for guests, who love taking the ideas (and products) home for future enjoyment.
Gentle yoga and meditation round out the day, as you enjoy some time to stretch and heal your entire body. No experience is necessary, and Peggy accommodates all levels. You'll love Peggy's signature "Energy Balancing Sequence" where you literally tap away your tension and ensure a deep sense of well being and peace of mind.
You'll be ready for a satisfying, healthy and delicious dinner prepared with fresh ingredients by our loving chef. Each evening features a different menu so you can learn how to incorporate some new and healthy approaches to preparing your meals.
You'll find you'll want to linger around the communal dinner table with your new-found friends to share stories and find new opportunities for growth, healing and transformation.
Before bed, Peggy will demonstrate how to make one of her own healthy dessert creations, and if you like, you can get in on the fun too!
Each day brings new opportunities for growth and healing.
By the end of the Healing Oasis Retreat, many participants find they not only experience peace of mind, but a smaller pants size as well!
