I’m hoping to offer a working retreat in Southern Turkey. We’ll be in rustic accommodations (think cabin, yurt, tepee) near the beach. We’ll have daily yoga and meditation, lots of free time to work on individual projects, and an optional works-in-progress share each evening. We’ll also visit some ancient ruins and magical places mentioned in the Odyssey. More info to come, should be up by end of August 2019.

August: Women in Transition: Building Your Next Act in Peru
Dr. Deborah Ballard-Reisch of Propel Consulting and I will be hosting a 10-day transformative workshop for women in the beautiful Sacred Valley, Peru. Join us for yoga, workshops, ceremonies, hikes in nature, and Machu Picchu! Details are still being arranged, join the mail list to stay up to date.
Lauren, our host, was a charming ambassador for Morocco; I don’t see how anyone could provide a better experience than she did for our group consisting of eight strangers (soon to become friends).
Thank you, Lauren, for planning such a wonderful trip and sharing so many fabulous experiences. Looking forward to your future retreats. Read more “I don’t see how anyone could provide a better experience”
Lauren made me feel comfortable and safe traveling to a part of the world I had never been to previously. The personal experiences she shares regarding being a smart traveler and her cultural knowledge are valuable.
She is friendly, a good problem solver, respectful of personal space/time, and fun. I would definitely travel with her again. Read more “Safe, comfortable, and fun!”
Lauren was a fantastic host —wonderful, full of life, giving, trustworthy and a ton of fun! Even though the stay was only a week long, we got such a beautiful, well-rounded immersion in the culture…
What this is not: your standard trip. We saved money along the way and got a fantastic cultural voyage. I can wholeheartedly recommend this experience and I will most definitely be joining Lauren again in the near future. Read more “A well-rounded immersion in culture”
