YOU ....

  • Is your to do list taking over your soul list?

  • Are you last on the list of people to take care of? Wait.....are you even on the list???!!

  • Are you at a crossroads in your life?

  • Are you missing the authenticity of a personal connection before we had email, cell phones and text messaging?

  • Are you just....ready? Ready to make a shift. Ready to put yourself first. Ready to put aside what's holding you back?

The routine of life can wear us down. Feeling stuck, or not good enough, is more common among women than you think. Additionally, as women we often feel the pressure to 'be it all'.  Many of us believe that we should be professionally successful, be strong but vulnerable, be approved of by others, be available to our friends, families and significant others, and on and on and on.... And for some of us, after years of striving and pleasing and adapting, we begin to wonder if there is something more. The questions start to arise.

What if...?
What else...?
What's possible...?
What do I want...?

If these are familiar questions, then the Women Rising Retreat is for you! Whether you are at a transitional point in your life, looking for inspiration and motivation, or determined to bring your health, relationships, or business success to new levels, we have you covered.

... what it would be like to press pause and really devote the time to realigning with what’s important to you.

... putting down your to do list so you can have meaningful conversations with strong, capable, like-minded women who are ready to RISE UP together.

... being nourished from the inside out; mind, body and spirit.

During this gathering you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in beautiful new surroundings, unplug and connect with other women in an honest, compassionate way. You deserve the time and space to reflect, renew and reconnect so you can return to your life with a clear mind and an open heart.


Our goal is to ensure that each participant feels supported and taken care of throughout the weekend. At this retreat you will experience the following:

  • Daily opportunities to connect with the group and individuals

  • Time off each afternoon to rest, reflect and renew

  • Healthy and delicious meals

  • A beautiful setting to relax and reconnect with yourself

You will leave feeling nourished, well-rested, clear, rejuvenated, and connected. This connection will strengthen your internal sense of power, not only to yourself, but to the world.
