Unburden from the Corona Virus!
Aruba is starting to open up again….
We know these are trying times and it is difficult to make decisions to travel anywhere right now. As a concession to the stress and need to getaway we are offering retreats that are fully refundable.

YOUR HEALTH IS OUR # 1 Priority!
We know everyone is concerned and has anxiety from the Corona Virus (COVID-19).
Please be reassured that we are following the health and safety guidance as prescribed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the local public health department.
The coming days and weeks hold a lot of unknowns with crippling effects of fear and anxiety. Wherever you are on this spectrum, know that we at Brave Heart Workshops care.
For that reason, we are keeping our small-scale events available for you to be able to “Retreat” to when this comes to an end.


Brave Heart Workshops events can now be refundable up to 4 weeks before each retreat during the Corona Virus Pandemic.
We just ask you to communicate with us regarding your travel plans; (i.e. airline flights etc.)
This retreat is for 8-16 attendees only.
We believe they are small scale enough to proceed with registrations and to secure safety in wellness and health.

We hope these life-changing retreats will give you time to Relax – Renew – Restore. Reconnect with “Self” and others especially after the travel bans have been lifted. Now more than ever a retreat where you can connect with others and release your burdens will be so renewing.


“I was looking for someone to inspire me, motivate me, support me, and keep me focused… Someone who would love me, cherish me, make me happy, and I realized all along that I was looking for myself.”

NATURAL POOL
White powdered sands provide a fitting outline for much of the island and many stunning landscapes occupy the places in between but none of the attractions are quite as enticing.
The Concha site is enclosed by natural walls of rocky coastline. These outcroppings or pool rocks are natural and have allowed the inside of the pool to be calm and swimmable.

ARIKOK NATIONAL PARK
Aruba’s national park is called Arioch National Park. It covers almost 20% of the island and consists of three main zones.

ARUBA NATURAL BRIDGE
On the second of September is a day Aruba will always remember.
The renowned Aruba natural bridge collapsed on September 2, 2005. Just before dawn on that Friday one of the most popular Aruba points of interest attractions was destroyed by Mother Nature’s brute force.
Thousands of visitors to Aruba walked across the natural bridge each year. It was an extremely popular picnic spot and surely must have been photographed millions of times throughout the past few decades. Countless tours have been organized to show the visitors this unique attraction of Aruba for many years in a row.
The scenery around the collapsed natural bridge is still beautiful and picturesque, and it is quite relaxing to watch the ocean waves break along the limestone rocks.

Brave Heart Workshops showed up at such a crucial time in my life and made an incredible impact I will never forget. Jill puts together a wonderful program. I can’t say enough. Jeremy S Therapist
Brave Heart Workshops. Jill kept encouraging me to attend a weekend retreat. I had some trepidation, not fully knowing what it was about. In addition, i was not in a place where i had enough money to go. Jill provided me a partial scholarship that allowed me to go. The weekend was such a breakthrough – truly Life Changing! For all ages – I am in my 50’s, and my healing journey catapulted onto an entirely new & powerful path. Colleen O
Jill is a passionate advocate of mental health and wellness. She has years of experience in event planning and has decided to use her skills towards creating her own boutique company, Brave Hearts Workshops. As a clinician I love doing workshops and retreats, but do not enjoy doing the planning outside of the clinical content. This is where Jill’s skills set is so very valuable. Partnering will Brave Hearts allows me to do what I love and do best and allows Jill to do the same. If you have a strong following but need support with event site planning, food, etc. I recommend partnering with Brave Hearts. Dr. Laura Wood
Freeing…..I have attended two Brave Heart Workshops — an incredible experience both times. Jill has so much experience with different modalities of personal wellness, which makes her retreats so successful. I have personally enjoyed the drama therapy workshop weekends- which have brought much clarity and freedom to my own journey. Jill has a heart and a passion for wellness in body, mind, and spirit, coupled with the skills to make these workshops run efficiently. She balances therapeutic story and body-work with time and space for effective rest, reflection, and rejuvenation. Lonnie S
Last July, I had the pleasure of attending one of the Brave Heart Workshop retreats held in Nashville, Tennessee. The organizer was Jill Reynolds. The facilitator was Dr. Laura Wood. It was a great experience. I got to experience Drama Therapy. It was an unforgettable experience, truly. Not only did I get a chance to visit Nashville, the city of music, but also, and more importantly, I got to experience Drama Therapy and heal my childhood traumas. Jill was super responsible and caring. She helped to arrange hotels, flights, transportation, meals and took us to concerts. She had an eye to discover talents. Because Dr. Wood was one of the most intuitive and skilled therapists as I discovered over the course of the weekend. The healing work was transformative and fun at the same time. The combination of performance and healing really made it much less intimidating and more spontaneous. I truly enjoyed the workshop and recommends it to anyone who has an interest in personal healing or psychology in general. Ada W
