Your Retreat Leaders

A dedicated friendship

Maya and JuliAnne have cultivated their own friendship and work relationship for almost 20 years. They met in 2001 when both lived and worked in Denver, Colorado, and fast found a deep connection in their shared belief systems.

Committed work partners

Over the years, JuliAnne and Maya worked together on a number of healing projects. Maya also served as JuliAnne's writing coach on her third book, which hit #1 new release on Amazon 48 hours after its release in 2018. (Hint: Maya is a phenomenal coach and partner in helping her clients remove unseen blocks and birth new projects.)

Passionate about healing

Such is the trust and bond between these two women that Maya was the advocate JuliAnne called upon when she faced the biggest challenge of her life: a near death experience due to cancer.  This further solidified what had already been an incredible relationship. and when JuliAnne received her cancer-free diagnosis some months later, a new dream was born: Sea Kiss Point.


It is with the deepest sense of gratitude and humility that Maya and JuliAnne bring their years of transformational experiences, their commitment to healing and their enormous talents to serve the women who come to Sea Kiss Point.

Hold On: Finding Relief amidst Chaos - Our Inaugural Retreat for Women with Cancer


Thursday, November 14 - Thursday, November 21

Are you a woman with cancer? Are you recently diagnosed? Feeling overwhelmed with fear? Or are you currently in treatment and feeling incredibly alone? Perhaps you've weathered the storm and come out the other side and now wonder, 'what next?'? Welcome. I've been there. I've walked these same dark paths. I've walked those miles in your shoes. I speak your language. 

And the language of cancer changed my life.


We are incredibly humbled to host this inaugural retreat for women with cancer at Sea Kiss Point in Maine. JuliAnne Murphy, our director, is a recent cancer survivor who overcame a terminal cancer diagnosis in 2018. One of the things she realized most poignantly through her own journey was that the tiny bit of time she had to interact with other women with cancer, who "spoke the language" was never enough. She wanted more. She needed more but the limited resources she found were not enough. This lack of connection and comfort in not finding her tribe were one of the hardest aspects of her cancer journey. As part of her second lease on life, she is committed to bringing these kinds of nurturing connections to women with cancer.


This is your chance to do be nurtured and accompanied by someone who has been through the darkest days you are traversing. Come. Let Mother Nature cradle you.  Release. Nap. Relax knowing that your meals are being prepared for you, no matter your dietary needs. Rest. Talk. Share. Or simply be quiet. This is a time for you, to be where you are. To talk (or not) with a fellow survivor about the things that have come up for you - the things no one told you or the things you discovered on your path. Depending on your situation, you may choose to partake in daily coaching with JuliAnne, individual therapy or discussions on a number of very personal topics as they relate to your experience with cancer. Vulnerable topics like communication, sex, relationships, body changes, body image, intimacy, food, friendships, financial struggles and mortality are some of the topics, among others, that are open for discussion.


This is a sacred, safe space, just for you. Come. Be. Feel seen. Get relief. After a sumptuous week, your load will feel lighter. Your heart will be released from carrying so much. And you'll come away refreshed. 


You need this. Every woman with cancer does. Contact us now for details and an application. This will be an incredibly personalized healing retreat.
