Hilary Pearlson | Self-Compassion | East Coast, USA




4-7 Jun 2020

This is the year for “Self”. The time to acknowledge our strengths and flaws, our peaks and valleys, our past and future. The time to learn to unconditionally love and accept ourselves for who we are rather not who we are trying to be.

We believe that there is such a need to bring attention to the topic of self-compassion as a whole because it is an essential tool that we need in order to grow and manifest our passion and purpose, especially in the chaos and commotion of today’s daily life.

It’s almost easier to show kindness and love to others than to ourselves. In our list of priorities, more often than not we don’t even appear in it. We don’t take centre stage in our own life story. Our glass runs empty, yet we invest in ensuring that others overflow. We are taking care of everyone and everything and fail to give ourselves even the smallest time and care. We fail to even realise or acknowledge that we can often judge ourselves harshly, often be self-demeaning.

Self-Compassion is relating to the self with kindness. Words of affirmation, self-compassion rituals, allowing yourself to just be, not compromising on your happiness, not beating yourself up for any shortcomings, not imposing unrealistic levels of expectation and pressure, embracing your imperfections in whichever form they manifest.




Hilary is a Kundalini yoga and meditation teacher, empowerment coach and the creator of the conscious lifestyle blog, The Dreamerie.

She believes deeply in the bodies innate power to heal itself and has dedicated her life to supporting her clients with the tools to be their own healer, connect to clarity, clear space and cultivate inner awareness through meditation, breathwork and self-inquiry journaling practices.

She was guided to do this work through her health journey, living with chronic illness and surviving a bone marrow transplant at 21 years old. It is because of the ways in which she has been able to heal herself that she found her purpose on this planet, to support others in doing the same from a place of empowerment and compassion.



Hilary will be leading our retreat with Kundalini yoga and meditation, empowering discussions, journaling practices and sharing her personal journey. She will teach practical tools that you can take with you even after the weekend is over to create more ease, flow, and awareness in your daily life.

This retreat will focus on cultivating an environment and a series of daily rituals, workshops, classes and activities that promote being gentle, supportive, and understanding of oneself. Deepening the practices to support in combating what can usually occur which is harshly judging oneself for personal shortcomings, the retreat offers a space pf warmth and unconditional acceptance. Learning how to be kind to ourselves in good times and bad. Harnessing the tools, techniques, rituals and better self-understanding which will allow you to realise that your worth is unconditional.

Consciously Connected Travel was created out of a necessity to do more. Our tribe of beatniks truly believe that everyone has a part to play, and ours is creating a space where travel, wellness and philanthropy intertwine. So that the future generations might live in a world that is a little bit more full of love and light.

CCT was designed to blur the lines between travel and supporting communities in the places you travel to, every time you travel with us - either through our Travel Design service, Culturally Connected Experiences or Wellness Activations, we donate a % directly from our own pockets to a local project, charity or community in that destination in addition to planting trees to offset each travellers carbon footprint.
