OUR STORY

NINE Retreat was born out of a passion to bring women together in a safe, non-judgmental and healing place.

Kym Ventola, founder of NINE Retreat, noticed that a lot of women around her were feeling disconnected, stressed out and lonely. She became aware of the lack of opportunities available for women to collectively celebrate, learn and empower one another. The absence of this experience led Kym to form NINE Retreat, a successful and trusted retreat designed to heal, inspire, and transform women.

NINE Retreat earned its name because of its numerological meaning. The number nine symbolizes wisdom, responsibility, intuition, compassion and great strength of character - a definitive representation of women and their intrinsic qualities.

 

NINE Retreat's core values:

“We offer a safe space and community for women to share, bond and uplift one another through discussion, wellness and education. Our goal is to reinforce female strength and purpose by understanding and validating their natural gifts and qualities.”
