Women are busy with many takers of our time. Isn't it time you take some time for yourself?
To increase my impact, I realized that I had to change the way I showed up. It wasn’t just about reading a few books, going to yoga and learning to meditate. I needed to dive into what was holding me back from feeling comfortable in my own skin and believe that I have everything I need to make my impact. I call this: stepping into my light.
Surrounded by the inherent peacefulness of nature, join us on this sprawling 400-acre property as we come together to explore, experience, and connect. This is your time to invest in yourself with practices, techniques, storytelling, and meaningful conversations.
The Spring 2019 Together We Seek Retreat was strategically organized to explore new areas, connect with new women, take in a new location, and enjoy wholesome meals from local culinary talents. Join us as we explore, discuss, and embark together.
The goal of this retreat is for you to leave feeling refreshed, connected, energized, and ready to have more impact and joy in your life.

Many of us don’t make enough time in our lives to invest in ourselves and align with what’s calling us. If you’re looking for an opportunity to center yourself with what’s important to you now, this dedicated time could be just what you need. If you have questions or are unsure if this retreat for you, please reach out to me or the women that have attended past retreats!
