Message from Amanda Orlando, the organizer 

Wellness retreat meets food allergy life! Imagine a wellness retreat where everyone in the room just gets it about allergies; that’s a powerful feeling.  

Amanda Orlando – organizer for event

The first ever “Free To Be Me” Food Allergy Retreat is a wellness experience thoughtfully curated for those with allergies and eczema; an event that is relevant to us and the needs of our community. The goal of the organizer is for every guest to leave the retreat feeling seen, heard, validated, and connected. Living with food allergies and eczema can come with mixed emotions, from anxiety and fear, uncertainty, and even grieving the lifestyle you thought you’d have. The focus of the retreat is self acceptance, and how to thrive. We can live our best lives with food allergies and eczema! Get all the details at freetobeme.ca
