Wonderful Experience!

I attended the August 2023 retreat and it was a wonderful experience. I didn’t know how much I needed to be around sober people who have a some of the same experiences I have had with alcohol. It was so nice getting to know everyone and laughing a lot! I’ll definitely be attending another retreat in the future! Laura did a great job putting this whole thing together!


So grateful for this clearly carefully curated experience!

The retreat was honestly life-changing. Before the gathering I was feeling pretty solo in my journey and isolating myself. Finding community that weekend helped me build curiosity and courage to connect with folks. The retreat was incredibly meaningful - and also super FUN! A great mix of healing and deep conversations with light-hearted belly laughs. I felt really cared for by Laura and her team, and the food was INCREDIBLE. Loved Tahoe and the adventures - and the people I got to experience the weekend with. I'm so grateful tor this very clearly carefully curated experience - and 100% would do it again. So. Much. Gratitude. Laura and her team knocked it out of the park.



The sober pal retreat was LIFE CHANGING! I never thought I’d bond so strongly with women in such a short amount of time. The outing was so fun but the time we spent indoors making mocktails, playing games, and just talking was just as amazing. I really really want this to be an annual thing for me. I’ve made friendships for life that I truly cherish.


100% nourishment for my soul!

I remember finalizing my booking thinking “Am I really doing this? Planning a trip to meet a handful of sober strangers in a place I’ve never been?” I was so nervous. But from the moment I arrived until the last few moments we spent together, it was magic and 100% nourishment for my soul. Laura has an incredible gift of making people feel welcome and totally at home in her presence. Before I knew it, we were laughing and sipping mocktails and sharing our personal journeys and creating inside jokes and catch phrases. We ate delicious food and saw breathtaking scenery and recharged ourselves amongst likeminded people who really spoke and understood our experiences in sobriety. What I thought would be a quick and pleasant adventure turned into a memory I will cherish for a lifetime. RUN DON’T WALK at the chance to join a SoberPal Retreat with Laura. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
