Our Story

how we got started

BeWell Retreats grew out of so many of us feeling isolated, confused, frightened, having to make major changes and adaptions because of a pandemic, and knowing, perhaps on a deeper level that there was a major shift happening to our global society and the planet.

Hi, I’m Barbara Badolati (barbarabadolati.com) and since the time I attended the Harmonic Convergence, a global conscious collective event in 1987, I have dedicated my personal and professional life to self-actualization and guiding others along the way. BeWell Retreats is yet another way to support all of us and the challenges we are facing.

We all have to function in our day to day lives yet crave self-care ideas that are effective and immediate. We have to interact with people through a screen yet yearn for deeper connections. We intuitively know there is more to understand and desire a safe place to explore.

BeWell Retreats gives you a place to be, to receive virtually and in-person. I look forward to being with you.

Our Mission

resting, reflecting, and renewing

We want to stay healthy and are curious how to create good habits that serve us personally. We wonder when or if we will ever get to go on a retreat or spa vacation, being with new friends.

I too wonder this, especially since I’ve been leading health retreats throughout the world since 1992.

I have witnessed the transformations of retreat participants from the mountain peaks of Patagonia, Chile to the azure seas of the Greece isles, to the soft sands of Lake Michigan and the ocean surf of Baja, Mexico.

I know the value of “retreating” – the ultimate container for rest, reflection, renewal and reset.

Therefore, I designed BeWell Retreats to be all of this, virtual wellness getaways for YOU, saving you time, money and trying to “catch-up” when you return from a retreat vacation.

I have curated the expert healers, creatives and wellness practitioners to bring you warm and inviting virtual experiences that will help you grow, discover, heal, share, move, create and become.

Join us from the comfort of your own home, living room or your most sacred space as you embark on your self-care journey.
