The Phoneless Retreat For The Broken Hearted


The following is an excerpt from Sara Ashley O'Brien | February 14, 2018 | CNN.com |

At breakup bootcamp, the first house rule is to digitally detox. No phones are allowed.

The intimate gatherings, which average about 14 people per event, are set up to help newly single women "rewire their hearts." Retreats are held several times a year in upstate New York and Malibu, California.

Launched in 2017, Renew founder Amy Chan's mission is to help women mend their hearts through a mix of spirituality and science. A team of all female experts, from psychologists and behavioral scientists to energy healers, conduct group and one-on-one sessions.

Also on site: a chef to cook nutritious meals, and zen activities such as alpaca petting, yoga and meditation.

It may sound like a tall order to help people move on from former relationships in one weekend, but Chan said the goal is to teach attendees how behavior may assist or detract from that process.
