You will be staying in an island oasis called Casa Aqua, a 16-acre Spanish-Mediterranean estate on the Atlantic Ocean. More than all you could want with 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths in the main house, large pool, hot tub, boat dock, fully equipped kitchen, and much more! Also, there's a honeymoon cottage on its own, 2 acres, has 1 bedroom with 360 degrees of open water views, one full bathroom, and can be rented with the mansion for 300 USD per night additional rent.

All exquisitely designed and furnished with spectacular views for the best vacation of your life! Boat dockage for smaller boats with a controlling depth of 3 to 4 feet. Snorkel in your own backyard in Cutthroat Harbor or 5 miles out at Looe Key Reef, the most spectacular reef in the keys. Also, deep water diving on wrecks and reefs.

Program

There are moments in life when you feel overwhelmed, stressed, and anxious. Unfortunately, you don’t have a manual that offers the tools you need to cope with such emotions nor were many of you taught this in school or as children. Anxiety is the response to a stressor that activates the body’s fight or flight survival system. Telling yourself to calm down when your body is in full flight or fight mode and that you are in danger is not going to have an actual calming effect.

What you need are tools to help recognize the thoughts, feelings, and actions that lead to heightened anxiety, and effective coping methods that regulate stress response. A key task to addressing such anxiety is to enhance emotion regulation skills. Effective emotion regulation requires the integration of body and mind that brings into consciousness the emotional states and mental habits that affect how you feel.

What you need is to connect and support each other. CONNECT is a sacred and serene space where you gather to heal the anxious mind by first moving the body. Through movement, you are able to regulate the body and once the body is regulated, you connect to process emotions, thoughts, and behaviors that lead to heightened anxiety.

Meeting in a group environment serves to heal one another simply by holding space; by listening to each other with an open, accepting heart. In this space, you are understood as you are. When you feel understood, you are free to release anything that is no longer serving you and embrace your true identity and destiny.

How it’s done

Each session is 2 hours and includes time spent in directed mind, body, spirit action (ie. breath, yoga, and meditation), followed by sharing of information and group processing facilitated by a licensed mental health professional. Research has shown that that engaging in mind-body interventions coupled with promoting emotional expression and group support is effective in reducing stress and managing anxiety.

Why do you need a mental health provider to facilitate the group?

A licensed mental health professional is equipped to help you identify the source of your dysfunction and offer evidence-based interventions to help you heal. You can feel comfortable knowing that the person helping you is a highly educated professional who is regulated by the state and is trained to deal with both the dramas of ordinary life as well as the traumas that prevent you from living your best life.
