Do you feel disconnected after years of suffering, working, supporting, nurturing and caregiving others? To 'honor oneself' you must first reconnect back to you and then reset your priorities to move forward feeling powerful. Join me on this incredible journey to Morocco where you will feel transformed in body mind and spirit. Together we will step outside of our comfort zone so we can gain a new perspective on all aspects of our lives and health to recognize what is working, and what no longer serves us. 


To be alive is to age. We can’t go back but we can go forward with more power, courage, independence and joy. It’s essential to take care of your sleep, your diet, your hormones, your energy and your brain health, to truly enjoy this magical second half of your life. We will reset priorities, restack with healthier habits and respark our mindset and purpose. Get ready to feel sexy, fit and on top of your game at 50 and beyond!


Shawna Robins is founder and CEO of Third Spark, a National Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach, sleep expert and a best-selling author of two books. She is passionate about helping women transform through travel so they can improve their health, longevity and quality of life during their second half of life.
