Our Wild Precious Life Retreats are the physical and tangible culmination of inspired experiences, content, and products that encourage women to seize their most ecstatic lives by nurturing their minds, bodies, and spirits.
We produce and curate transformative events that always include a way to open up, release, connect and celebrate through physical movement, energetic workshops, nutritious and decadent food and drink, and rituals in stunning and lush settings. The retreats provide a time and space for each of us to make an intentional commitment to growth and self-care that leaves us feeling fulfilled, balanced and energized. After all, this wild precious life is yours and yours alone. Live it abundantly!
We have had a lot going on with moving to Santa Barbara and launching our inaugural fragrance The First (available now on our site!!), and now we’re gearing up for our next Retreat with you all this winter! We find winter to be the time when we need to retreat the most. It is the time of year to turn inwards, reflect, restore and revitalize! We are picking the perfect spot (either Sonoma or Santa Ynez wine country), the most inspired and in touch speakers, and the most heavenly details to make this coming retreat our most magical yet.

While we didn’t get to enjoy the poolside Zeel massages at our latest Wild Precious Life retreat in Malibu a few weeks ago, our guests certainly did! And we knew what a delightful offering it was as we’re no stranger to the Zeel massage. Zeel offers massages at your own house on demand– literally download the app, request a massage at your preferred time as well as your preferences on type of massage and gender of therapist, and boom! A licensed, well vetted masseuse shall arrive at your door. It’s like Uber for massage.
We are big believers in massage, not only for the physical benefits of removing toxins from the body, but also for the mental and emotional release. The world seems to be speeding up so taking time for self care, slowing down and receiving is more important now than ever. Zeel makes prioritizing yourself easy as it is affordable with massages starting at $99 for 60 minutes and you also don’t have to leave the house and deal with the untherapeutic issues of driving and parking! For parents, like Mary and Napper, it’s nice to book two back to back massages and take turns playing with the kids while the other recharges and relaxes. Trust us, this makes for a better parent and a better partner! For couples sans enfants, book a couples massage.
We also love that the finances are taken care of through the app so there’s no groggy fumbling with cash or check book when you’re in post massage bliss out mode. Speaking of finances, enter our very own special promo code FIRESTONE to receive $25 off your first Zeel massage! You’re welcome!
After every retreat, we turn to each other and exclaim, “That was our best one yet!” Each one of our retreats and events has a unique spirit – comprised of the soulful energy of the outstanding women who show up. Our last day long retreat in Malibu was all about tapping into our relationship with ourselves- knowing and loving ourselves so that the lives we create are full of balance, purpose and joy. Our hostess and keynote speaker, Lavinia Errico, is a celebrated expert on this topic!
Having created Equinox with her two brothers while also balancing motherhood, partnership, and marriage, Lavinia shared with us her journey to where she is now- neutral. Neutral doesn’t sound glamorous, but really it’s another word for peace, for being in a place where you are so grounded in your values and happy in yourself and your life that external events do not rock your world– the highs aren’t so high and the lows aren’t so low. Also, if Lavinia is neutral, neutral IS very glamorous indeed! Lavinia is exuberant and radiant. She shares with an open heart and truly celebrates and uplifts other women. We are so happy to have found her- one of our role models, inside and out!
Following a morning which started with Bulletproof Coffee (talk about feeling exuberant!) and breakfast delights by Thyme Cafe, we had an opening ceremony on the lawn where we shared and supported each other’s intentions for the day. Yogi goddess, Samantha Mehra, then led us in poolside yoga and movement, helping us drop into our bodies and get over our egos and discomfort prancing around the pool!
After yoga, SunLife Organics served smoothies and juices that were both delicious and nourishing. Sipping on SunLife’s best, we settled into Lavinia’s inspiring living room for a discussion with her on her process and the business of being and staying neutral, while also designing one’s happiest life.
Gourmet lunchboxes from Thyme Cafe were enjoyed with Chateau D’Esclans rose and Promise pinot noir, as well as Ferm Fatale kombucha! Dessert came in the form of the decadent, yet gluten free Choc Brownie cart. Who knew duck egg brownies would be insanely good? And “good” for you as they are made with local, organic ingredients. In the afternoon, retreatees chose their own adventure – we offered facials by Sonage, massages by Zeel, tarot readings with Tory Valach, color astrology readings with Rose Theodora, makeovers with Glam Squad, as well as two afternoon breakout sessions with Lavinia, one focused on career and the other on relationships.
As the sun set, we said our goodbyes and hugged old friends and traded info with new ones. Each woman left with a gift bag – actually two! One full of Bulletproof Coffee’s key products and a starter kit– trust us, you’re never going back to your old joe after this. Our Wild Precious Life gift bag was full of gifts to continue the self love – Plum Deluxe Self Care tea; boho chic beaded bracelets by our beloved Sisco Berluti; lip scrub and gloss by Sara Happ; copies of the latest Luxe magazine; Carbon 38 gift cards; gluten free Choc brownies; and a beautifying serum from Sonage!
Thank you to all who participated in this magical day. Share the love, spread the light and let’s do it again soon! xox
