Sweet Living T1D Retreats

Sweet Living T1D Retreats is a nonprofit organization that hosts educational and wellness retreats specifically designed for adults living with Type 1 Diabetes. Our retreats provide a comprehensive approach to health and wellness by offering guidance from certified diabetes educators (CDCES), registered dietitians (RDN), exercise physiologists, and soon mental health counselors, all of whom live with Type 1 Diabetes. Our retreats are held in serene natural surroundings providing an ideal environment for learning, relaxing, and cultivating a compassionate and supportive T1D community. 

Our Mission

At Sweet Living T1D Retreats, our goal is to enhance the quality of life for adults with Type 1 Diabetes by providing support, education, and community-building opportunities. Addressing the often-missing mental health component in diabetes care, we offer sustainable stress management tools and foster a nurturing environment for lasting connections.


This recent retreat in Costa Rica is hands down the best thing I‘ve ever done for myself.  I learned and rested and played and ate delicious, nutritious food. And that wasn’t even the best part! I’ve lived with diabetes for 33+ years and have never been in a group of diabetics!  I felt seen and understood in a way I’ve never felt before and left with true friends"
