Philosophy:

Centered Soul Retreats provides transformational retreat experiences by drawing upon the natural beauty of Northern Ohio and beyond. For our programs we partner with top experts, teachers and coaches in a variety of health and wellness disciplines. Because our retreats draw local participants, with each retreat we are building a community of supportive, conscious, loving and mindful friends! We hold multiple retreats a year and are limited to an average of about 20 guests which enables us to provide personal touches and individualized attention. Centered Soul Retreats provides a robust schedule of events, but you are also encouraged to rest and spend time in solitude if that is what you need. Our menus are designed to truly nourish your body and soul with organic, plant-based and detoxifying foods and plentiful snacks. Our goal is to have you leave our retreats feeling centered, refreshed, energized and filled with gratitude, joy and hope. 

We offer 5-6 retreats a year, but contact us to discuss customized retreat experiences for your organization.

Founder and Facilitator:

Hi! I am Megan O'Bryan and I am the founder of Centered Soul Retreats and serve as your host, facilitator and yoga teacher. Centered Soul Retreats is an offering created from love. Carving out time and space to reflect, meditate, heal and dream has impacted my own life profoundly. Through Centered Soul Retreats I hope to share tools and practices to help you be healthier in your mind, body and spirit. My professional background is in leading nonprofit organizations focused on social change. I spent many years working to connect rape survivors to support and to eradicate sexual assault in our community. More recently I have focused my career on education access and reform. Currently, I am proud to be leading the Cuyahoga Community College Foundation helping to ensure our students have the resources they need to succeed. 

I became passionate about my own self-care in 2010, when I was struck by a debilitating, stress-related illness that literally left me unable to walk at age 39. I had to change many things in my life to get to a place of health and wholeness. Yoga was one of my life-saving and life-changing practices as well as other self-care rituals, including intentionally taking "time out" for retreats. I believe the Northeast Ohio community is blessed with a wealth of gifted teachers, healers, and holistic health practitioners whose expertise can be harnessed and shared through Centered Soul Retreats. I have traveled to retreats in other parts of the world, but am creating local, accessible and community-building experiences in our beautiful region of Northeast Ohio. I am soooo excited to collaborate with my favorite teachers to bring you Centered Soul Retreats! I hope to see you at a retreat soon...you won't regret it! xxxooo
