About the Retreat

At the Radiance & Renewal Retreat, we believe that every woman deserves a sanctuary where she can heal, thrive, and rediscover her authentic self.

Nestled in the heart of Tuscany, our retreat offers a safe, compassionate haven designed to rejuvenate your spirit and empower you on your journey to wholeness after abuse, high-conflict divorce, or toxic break-up.

It's time to ditch your shitty relationship pattern and say F$CK Yeah to Your New Life

Choose You - Your Future - Your Peace - Your Unapologetic Life

Step out of traditional recovery and into a space that embraces healing, empowerment, and a big fat dose of curiousity, imagination, and fun!

Healing is a journey to be enjoyed, not endured.

At Radiance & Renewal, Susan and Ashley Maria are going to give you the steps, resources, and encouragement to love yourself unconditionally, set solid boundaries for life, release your shoulds, and harness your individual courage to live a healthy, unapologetic, self-full life.

First-Class Workshops & Experiences

Photography to Get to Know Yourself Workshop

In this workshop, you will explore photography as a tool of self-discovery, personal expression and development. Photography changes our way of seeing the world, of feeling and perceiving reality. Knowing who we are and what we can achieve with that knowledge is essential for attaining happiness.  

As you explore getting to know yourself through photography, you will realize that your photographs can be a starting point for more authentic personal growth and creativity. 

R.E.A.L. Recovery After Abuse Workshops

Susan's personal experience and work with clients has led to the development of a powerful series of workshops all focused on editing social scripts, shifting from why me to for me, and putting the spotlight squarely on you and your wants, needs, and desires. You will be encouraged to rise above adversity, to step out of the victim space, reclaim your strong self-full voice, and be inspired to live free, fearless, and unapologetically! 

Express and Heal Through Art

Creativity has a profound healing power. At Radiant Renewal, Ashley Maria will support exploration of self through art. Adding art, doodling, and photography into your healing process will help you express your future in full colour, free of judgement.  You'll be encouraged to express your feelings in a safe and non-judgmental environment. This creative release fosters deeper self-understanding and healing.

Find Peace in Guided Meditations and Breathwork

Embrace the calming power of guided meditation and breathwork. Susan will guide you on a journey of self-discovery and relaxation. These practices help reduce anxiety, strengthen emotional resilience, and open up pathways to personal growth and self-love.  

Leisure, Exploration and Play Time

Plenty of leisurely time to explore, chat, read a book, paint, take photos. Unplug from the daily grind, turn off your phone (unless you're taking healing photos!), smile, laugh, get curious, and focus on you. You will have the healing benefit of living in the moment and opening yourself to all the possibilities that are waiting for you to reach out and take them.

Love from Retreat Participants

I liked the daily food for thought and interactions with new people who have experienced similiar situations and who add input and thought provoking questions to the mentors. Tons of thought provoking information and self reflective questions.


AVANTI 2023 Retreat

Avanti gave me a strong community filled with understanding and help available to better myself and create a brighter future. The workshops and one-on-one time with Susan were excellent. I loved enjoying meals and laughs with women who get it.
