Retreats

“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.”  

~ Joseph Campbell

“GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY, VALERIE!”

I don’t know about you, but this was what I heard daily growing up – before computers and xbox, and 257 channels on TV.  Fast-forward to adulthood, where life is busy, hectic, and oh so, so serious.  Somewhere along the line, I came inside to my “life as it should be” box, and completely forgot how to get out and play.

Now, I am in a wild love affair with Nature. It is so reliable, consistent, peaceful, and instantly drops me into awe and Wonder. It is my WOW Factor (Wonder over Worry.)

And, I have a natural-born talent to plan and organize. Love + Talent is my strategy (and can be yours, too, when you combine your natural talents with anything you love!) for creating retreats and travel adventures.

The Love is real. It’s pure. And, hint: it reflects the Love inside you, the Love you are made of, and the Love you rediscover to love your SELF.  Yes, we’ll talk about the whole self-love thing blasted in hundreds of self-help books. (it’s not as cheesy as you may think it is.)

My Vision – To unleash potential and empower the natural strengths of women so they can best serve themselves and the world.  I collaborate with Nature – honestly, She does most of the work – and guide you into new insights that will change EVERYTHING.

Here’s what’s unique about my retreats:

I gather amazing like-minded women for unforgettable and life-changing breaks from their busy, stressful routines. And, I also love working with fellow authors, coaches, healers, & entrepreneurs to optimize their business with live events.

Being in Nature doesn’t mean being athletic. There are lots of Adventure retreats that involve physical challenges such as rock climbing, kayaking, or hiking. My retreats may have a little of these, but it’s more about experiencing stillness and connection.

Being in Nature doesn’t mean roughing it.  I don’t know about you, but I am totally over sleeping on the ground or in bunk beds.  My retreats will be deep in Nature, but you will rest in luxury and receive the much needed pampering you deserve.

A retreat is not an escape.  This is not a Band-Aid getaway that just leads you back to your crazyass life.  No, this is wholehearted immersive experience that will provide insights that once you see – you cannot unsee.  And so your crazyass life will look different when you return.  Ok, I’ll say it.  They are Life-changing.

Travel and adventure is not just an activity with an agenda.  It is a state of mind.  It is a five-sensory experience that will blow your mind open and pounce on fear and worry. You will return with new armor, and your stressed out family and friends will be wondering — as you sheepishly grin — what you’ve been drinking.
