We wanted to create something extraordinary, an experience that would give a very special group of women the time and space to relax, luxuriate, connect, be inspired, take time for themselves, build friendships, launch dreams and celebrate who they’ve become. This unique event combines a private, 2-day retreat, two days of exploring and relaxing and having–dare I say it?–FUN, and opportunities to go deeper in intimate group experiences led by inspiring experts. If you’re ready to give yourself the gift of time away, time to rejuvenate, time to get recharged and re-inspired, and time with other extraordinary women, We invite you to reserve your spot now–and have something amazing to look forward to for the next several months!

Research seems to agree that a yearly break away from the 9-5 routine, can reduce the risk of heart attack by a whopping 50% in women.


Science shows that 40% of our happiness stems from our thoughts and our actions…self-care, making friends, thinking positive, and getting active!


You can discover the confidence you need to remove self doubt, fear, vulnerability, and conquer your dreams: Envison. Explore. Evolve.


You are choosing to reflect, celebrate, endure joy, connect, laugh, eat gooood food, smell fresh air, and explore the world beyond your local walls!
