Harness the Healing Power of Nature on a Breakwater Expedition through Prince William Sound, Alaska

Nature became my healing space during trauma recovery.

With every break I took outdoors, I began to better understand my personal story while finding clarity about my life.

Nature allowed me to be free from the created world around me and I came to realize that my traumas do not define me.

What I do have is an opportunity to learn + grow from my experiences.

Being on the trail and ocean provided space for me to let go of pain + welcome peace.

It was in nature that I understood a deeper meaning of me.

It was in nature that I began to live + love again.

And I want the same for you.

Welcome to our Transformational + Healing Alaska Retreat.


Through Sara’s guidance, positive energy, and vulnerability, I found more kindness and love in and for my own story. I would recommend a retreat to anyone seeking an adventure into nature and opening the door to healing and hope.”

– Liane Gerstenkorn


Limit 11 Attendees

We live during a time when it may feel difficult to detach from our daily life. Sure, we all have responsibilities + the need to take care of others. I get it!

But we all need to be taken care of, too. And that, my friend, means taking time away for YOU.

Join us on a healing retreat in Whittier, Alaska! This is a journey of self-discovery and adventure. So much of our lives are filled with responsibilities and distractions. Taking time away to detach from the world and reconnect to nature will feed your body, mind, soul and spirit.

This trip is designed for people who are ready to learn, grow, adventure, foster new friendships, and cultivate lasting memories.  Together we will adventure, meditate + journal in nature, and deep-dive into self through facilitated group coaching.

This uniquely choreographed journey through Prince William Sound, Alaska will be lead by Sara in collaboration with Breakwater Expeditions. Breakwater has a team of highly skilled outdoor professionals with years of experience in developing and leading adventure intentional programs and expeditions for teens, adults, and families.

You will leave this 7-day experience with your cup replenished and those empty spaces within you full of hope, love, and support.

My way of healing + growing into who I am today was unconventional. Yet, it worked. We all deserve a sacred space to deepen our relationship with self. To feel connected with others + know that we are not alone. There are no other retreats out there like this.

If you are taking your first step on your healing journey, or are well on your way + simply would like to continue your practice of loving + leaning into a more joy filled life, this is a space created for you.

Community + Connection are essential for change. These retreats are designed to meet you where you are and provide support regardless of the switchbacks you’re navigating in your life.

This program is designed to be a long term compass on your healing journey. I will walk you through steps to use nature in your healing journey, and I will share my own personal methods for embracing forgiveness. We all deserve space to find truth, inspiration, hope, and healing.

Everything here helped me get to where I am today. I want the same for you.


“I was blessed to have gone on one of Sara’s retreats in December of 2020 – it was magical. My heart was cracked wide open, Love, Worthiness and Compassion for self was seen within me for the first time. Being held by another touched the core of my soul – it was the most Peace, Unconditional love of each other and laughter I have ever experienced in life. Take that step into the Grand Canyon with Sara and “Choose you.”

– Rhonda Kroger

Q: How much time will I get with you?
A: You’ll get access to me throughout our coaching calls together and through Voxer, an instant messaging app. In addition, I am with you every step of the way on our Alaska retreat. Not only that, but my clients become family to me. Pretty much, we are connected for life.
