Some of my challenges and struggles were Communicating and making new friends. I think this is a really good place for me to feel like I belong and feel like somebody cares for me and is a part of my life. I like meditation a lot. It’s open my mind till the start of my first night.


I’ve got a lot of messages that I really don’t know I should know.  It’s a good way for girls to come together and realize they have coping mechanisms to work on their self confidence and to know what issues they are going through.

I got interested in the Compass Rose retreat because I heard about it from a friend and when we looked it up, my mom and I decided it looked really fun and like a great opportunity for me to learn more about myself.


I’ve definitely learned a lot here about self-confidence and that all starts with you and how you perceive yourself and handle yourself. And it’s not about what other people think.

On some challenges that I’ve experienced before the retreat is just kind of like balancing life work life school life kind of everything. I don’t have the time to just sit and take a deep breath and meditate so I feel like this retreat will help me figure out the tools to find the time.


I’ve definitely felt like I’ve started to gain a new sense of self. I’ve learned how to get deep into lucid dreaming and stuff like that which is something that I’ve never actively tried to do before.

Mental Health Awareness: Breaking the Silence

Mental health matters, and it’s time we talk about it openly. Many people face mental health challenges, yet the stigma surrounding these issues often prevents them from seeking help.

Let’s break the silence, educate ourselves and others, and show compassion to those dealing with mental health issues. Together, we can make a difference.
