Do you want to join me and a group of island-loving women on Eleuthera this year for 5 days of island fun, creative collaboration, and soul-awakening yoga?

I’ve just released the dates (May 18 – 23, 2019) for the next Women Who Live on Rocks retreat and I’m so excited to share the details with you. You can check it out here – I’d love for you to join us!

After our first island retreat in June 2017 in Puerto Rico, #ROCKtreatPR, many of you have been asking for the opportunity to join in on our next tropical escape. Unfortunately, the second retreat I had started planning for 2018 had to be scrapped in its early stages thanks to Hurricanes Irma & Maria but we’re back on track and ready to roll with our next adventure.

Our next retreat, which I am co-hosting with the talented Mariah Moyle of Out Island Life (who you’ll also recognize from her entertaining contributions to this site) is called Revive Your Creative Drive in The Bahamas. It is designed to provide you with a purposeful mid-year pause to assess where you’re at and where you want to go with your writing and creative pursuits in the second half of the year.

During our time together, you will clear your headspace, find inspiration, and mindfully motivate yourself to pursue your passions with fresh energy and clarity. We will provide the space for you to unwind in paradise, connect with fellow writers, and find the encouragement you need to head back out into the world invigorated and ready to make some magic with your words!

Women of all ages and backgrounds are welcome – no previous experience with writing or yoga is required, though at least a mild interest in both is recommended.

Please do check out the official retreat page to see if it sounds like something for you and feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions.

If you’re at all interested, don’t hesitate to reserve your spot ASAP! Spaces are limited to prioritize an intimate group setting.

It’s my goal to create more opportunities for this incredible community of island souls to connect. More retreats and events such as these are a part of that plan! If you have any ideas or thoughts for future getaways that you’d like to attend, please let me know.

Island Girl Since:


Originally Hails From:


Chrissann’s home rock in the British Virgin Islands feels bigger to her than it actually is. Though after spending five years on a teensy one acre island, the current 13-mile long rock she’s residing on now IS ginormous, at least by comparison. As with everything in the tropics, it’s all about perspective.

Once upon a time she used to care about things like matching her purse to her pumps but these days, any activities that require a bra and shoes go under careful, is-this-even-worth-it consideration. If island life has taught her anything at all, it’s that few things are more rewarding than time spent in the pool with a cocktail in hand.

As the Editor in Chief of this site, she spends her days working from home with her blue-eyed sidekick, Island Dog Diego, writing, editing, and cultivating content in the hopes of bringing some laughter and lightness to her fellow island souls. She recently published her first children’s book, When You’re a Baby Who Lives on a Rock, and is pretty pumped to share it with all of the island mamas out there. Her days off are typically spent boating, hiking, and meeting up with the neighborhood’s imperious roadside goats, who she shamelessly bribes into friendship. While normalcy was never listed as one of her special skills, Caribbean life may indeed be responsible for new levels of madness. She attributes at least a smidge of her insanity to the amount of time she spends talking to drunk people.

If you’re somehow still reading this and feel inclined to find out more about this “Chrissann” of which we speak, you can also take a gander at her eponymous website or follow her daily escapades on Instagram @womanonarock.
