YOUR LIFE IS THE SUM OF YOUR HABITS
Join us for a 3-night retreat where you will learn the neuroscience of habits, how to end harmful habits, and how to start nourishing ones. You will learn the Rebel Human® CRAFT and FRAME techniques, and create a solid plan to enact as soon as you return home. Curated and led by Rebel Human co-founders, Jenny Arrington & Tait Medina, Ph.D., this women's retreat takes place October 20 - 23, 2022 at a river bluff ranch overlooking the Mississippi in Wisconsin. This retreat is designed to give you the space, time, guidance, and support to carefully reflect and interrogate your behaviors and be curious about the possibilities that lay before you.
On this retreat we will bust some myths including the following:
Changing habits only works if you have self-control, will power, and discipline
Your brain's most important job is thinking
Changing habits is easy if you just know the right way
When you get frustrated, it means your efforts aren’t working and you should give up
You can change lots of behaviors at the same time if you do it the right way
Then, we will introduce you to neuroscience-backed tools and protocols to help you break free from old, painful habits and replace them with new, nourishing habits that are more in line with your goals and values. This deep dive into the science of habits will be aided by expert guidance and a carefully developed program that integrates yogic practices—pranayama, mantra, chanting, Yin Yoga—with sound healing, meditation, neurocoaching, personal development, exploration exercises, and visualization.
You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.

Rebel Human® retreats are known for the transformation they spark. The curated daily program is built to bring about a new psychological and physiological state so the seeds planted will take root and grow, nourishing a new way of being in the world. While you will have time on this retreat for swimming in the indoor pool or relaxing in the hot tub, you will also be guided through meditation, yogic practices, and exploration exercises that pierce the veneer of performative wellness, and lead to lasting change.
On this retreat you will learn the tools to carefully discern what needs a shift. These tools will allow you to build deep awareness, connection to your inner wisdom, and intuition, so you can make choices from a place of equanimity. These are powerful tools to take with you into your life after the retreat.
You will be supported in these practices by your teacher, but also by participating in a “screen cleanse.” You will be given the permission to take a full break from texting, emailing, online shopping, and social media so you can experience yourself and the world around you without these distractions.
The retreat is limited to 18 women. This small-group setting allows us to cultivate a culture where we feel safe and supported to connect and share. It also allows for personalized attention and one-on-one time with your teachers, Jenny Arrington and Tait Medina, Ph.D.
During this retreat we intend for you to have the space, time, and guidance to feel excited about your path and have a clear plan for your next steps. You will feel held and supported, while having downtime to journal, think, and be quiet; commune with nature; and connect with your fellow Rebel Humans.
This retreat is open to all levels. You do not need experience in meditation or in yoga to benefit. Our unique and personalized programming (which includes a preparatory call) allows us to meet the needs of beginning and advanced practitioners alike.
