about this event


Pressing pause is sometimes all we need. Life can often seem like there is little to no opportunity to press reset. Juggling life, work and everything in-between and with the social conditioning of putting everything else first before ourselves, running on empty has become part and parcel of life. But what if your reset wasn’t to undo the things that dwelled within your mind, but to embrace them and completely change your prospective of them? A total, mind, body and soul rest, helping to create the foundation of what is to come. Our Immersion Weekends are moments to truly focus on self. They are weekends that challenge your prospective and viewpoint of personal obstacles, challenges and uncertainties. Giving you a stronger understanding of self and a better prospective of your life and your place within it. Connecting you deeper to people and place within a supportive yet accountable space.

Join us for an intimate immersion weekend over 3 nights, 4 days on our Self-Acceptance Retreat, with space held by Bo Stanley, nestled in the remote and idyllic El Otro Lado, a magical and transformative space that will support you in your journey of Self-Acceptance. Located within the intimate community of Portobelo Panama, which consists of just 5,000 people who express themselves through the language of art and music and till this day evoke their roots of the vibrant Congo Culture. Nestled on a UNESCO World Heritage, National Park, nearby Fort San Lorenzo, boasting sea, lagoons and expansive jungle all beautifully integrated, creating a powerful and picturesque backdrop.

This retreat will immerse you deeply into local Congo Culture and the local community. The powerful stories of the people of Portobelo will transport you into a completely different world. Understanding their journey and their world, while we support them daily through philanthropic activations, utilising art, music, surf and so much more.

While you also experience your personal journey of Self-Acceptance with daily Surf provided by Bo Stanley teamed with connected Yoga and Mediation that delves deeper into your mind, body connection, teamed with Self-Acceptance workshops and powerful 1-2-1 sessions that support in helping you to craft and cultivate your own personal Self-Acceptance rituals and practices. But most importantly supporting you in unmasking the things that are holding you back.


At Consciously Connected Travel we are approaching our retreats from an altogether different perspective. Utilising travel as the tools for local and self discovery and as the catalyst to cultivate inner and outer emotional and physical change. Each retreat collaborates with a leading health and wellness expert from around the world, providing a specific focus and purpose, in addition to a curated team of some of the best holistic practitioners and an immersive, transformational and exploratory program that connects you to people and place. Allowing you to discover a destination, while rediscovering yourself. Replenish your mind, body and soul, through the ideology that everything lies within us. We are simply acting as your catalyst to unlocking it and creating a space that allows you to be you.

By joining in a Consciously Connected Retreat, you join us in Planting a Seed as part of our philanthropic initiatives which sees every trip support a local project or community, teamed with offsetting your carbon footprint through planting a tree for every traveller.


Our Self Healing Retreat will be led by Bo Stanley.

I grew up in a family of surfers and athletes so it was only destiny that I too would become one. I learned to swim before I could walk, and stood up on my first wave at the age of 5. Needless to say I was built strong and sturdy, two things that later on in life the industry would tell me were wrong, not beautiful, and certainly not marketable. And a little later in life those same things the media saw as my weakness, I began to see as my biggest strengths, and ultimately became my purpose for my life.

I began competing at the age of 14 and went on to compete on the WQS (World Qualifying Series) of Surfing for Women. Despite never fitting the size “mold” the industry asked me to be, I still finished in the top 12 on the World Qualifying Series before I went on to begin my REAL passion I felt called to do: Promote size diversity, strength, Self-Love, Self-Acceptance and Self-Empowerment for girls and women. I didn’t want girls and women to face the same pressures I saw happening all around me and to myself. I want us to grow up in a world where capability and strength outweigh the size of our bodies. Where beauty ideas are not a one size fits all image.

I have always believed in the power of surfing and athleticism as it’s where I have found my strength, my happiness, and learned to love my body – not for how it appears but for what it can do! I want to share this love and passion with other women in hopes that they too can find the beauty in their strong, capable bodies exactly as they come!
