Remember when every woman who got dumped wished that Camp Sawi was real? Well, it seems like there's now a retreat house for the brokenhearted!
Five years ago I went through a breakup that completely knocked me off my feet. I would have never imagined during that time of darkness that one day I would be in New York, living my dream and creating a concept that helps people heal their hearts. I look back with such gratitude - what at the time seemed like the worst thing to have ever happened to me, ended up being the catalyst for me to grow, evolve and pursue a dream life I never dared to imagine. My heart is so full after this weekend, hosting my first ever RENEW retreat. It was so fulfilling to curate healing facilitators in a safe space to help women move forward from unhealthy, subconscious patterns of the past. Yesterday I cried tears of joy, so full of gratitude for all the people who supported me during my journey. To those of you who have believed in me, who’ve rooted for me, who’ve helped spread the word, liked one of my posts, who've sent me positive vibes… thank you. I would have not been able to do this without you. And if you know someone who is going through a hard time, I encourage you, reach out, show support and let them know they’re safe and loved. Matters of the heart can be extremely challenging, and the smallest act of kindness can go so far. We’re all in this together. If you've got love to give, share it. There might be someone right now who needs it more than ever.
After breaking up with her boyfriend and first love, Amy Chan slipped into depression. She tried to look for places to seek comfort and solace from but there were none. She told Glamour that it took her two years to move on from that breakup, and after about a year and a half, she decided to come up with Renew, a breakup boot camp that includes therapy, yoga, meditation, and other healing activities.
"It was an aha moment where everything came together, and I knew that I had to be the one to create a safe space for people to come and heal in a healthy way."
