I've spent nearly the last twenty years curating experiences in foreign lands for all kinds of folk -- from retreats in Italy, Finland and Morocco, to cross-country group travel in Australia to working with foreign diplomats on professional development tours abroad. 

My retreats have been featured in The Write Life, Yoga Magazine, Project Calm Magazine, Writing Magazine and I can tell you first hand that no matter where you are, you need to pack light but carry plenty of layers; you need a big smile, a fold-up umbrella and a Plan B, C and D.  And it all needs to fit in your purse!

 

  

Retreats & Your Business

Chances are retreats aren't your core business. Sure, retreats can be an enhancement to your business but if you don't have a lot of experience running them, they can come at a crippling cost; time and money-wise.

I've created a program based around my successes and total flopping failures that covers all aspects of planning and delivering a fantastic retreat.  In short, I've made the costly mistakes so you don't have to.  I've systemitized the planning, organizing, launching and delivery of retreats, making it an efficient, time and money saving process that's simple and easy to follow so that you can maintain focus on your core business, saving you precious time and energy.

 

What You'll Discover

To create a retreat is curate a meaningful, transformational experience.  It is an honor and a privilege when people trust you with their time and money.  So you'd better make it pop!  You'll want to conjure the kind of magic that turns strangers into forever friends and create an unforgettable atmosphere, conducive to the type of retreat you're offering. In creating a retreat, you'll want to manifest the essence of the word itself -- retreat: to withdraw from the every day and enter into deeper, inner realms. To do that requires boatloads of coordination, planning and know-how mixed with a bit of magic.

On this course you'll find out how to make the space for magic to happen.

Location

Perhaps the most important detail of all, but with so many options, how do you choose?  I'll take you through a process of discovery to find out what you'll need to run your dream retreat in your dream location.

Timing

Is there a favorable time of year to run retreats? How much lead up time do you need between your launch and your run date?  Turns out there are answers to all these questions.  Find out the answers to these and more.

Pricing

Bad budgeting is everyone's nemesis. I'll give you a fool proof template that you can plug your figures into and see exactly how you'll need to plan and price so you can be sure to do better than break even.  

Logistics

Discover how to alleviate the stress of  'having to do it all 'as well as traps to avoid. The last thing you need is to realize you forgot a crucial detail! Show up calm and cool because everything's already sorted. 

Taking the Leap

Whether you're interested in taking your offerings on the road, or putting on a retreat in your own back yard, there's never been a better time to offer a retreat. Thanks to Covid, we're all starved to spend time with others, to gather in new spaces and escape the doldrums of our day to day. 

 

Yes, running a retreat is a big commitment. It requires a lot of juggling and support but you don't have to go it alone. If you have a rocking idea and you're ready to take the next step and get your retreat off the ground, you've come to the right place.  

 

I'll help you discover all the things you didn't know you needed to know in order to pull off an exceptional, profitable retreat experience that will keep your tribe coming back for more.
