The Power of Retreat

KK28 Soundclip Image.png

In today’s episode of The Karen Kenney Show, we’re talking about the skill of knowing when to “back down” and the healthy importance & power that comes with the ability to Retreat.

A lot of us tend to look at retreating as a sign of weakness - but I’ve lived long enough now to tell you that sometimes, it’s actually the extreme opposite. Having the wisdom and insight to know why & when to retreat (when it’s necessary) is part of our strength and gives us the ability to let go of shit that’s been holding us up & weighing us down and to build ourselves back up by backing the feck’ up and slowing down. Ha!

Join me on retreat and learning how to let go and live in the Fearless Flow and take some time to reset and transform. I’d love to have you with us. xo
