Sleep summercamp style in a shared yurt

We won’t tell if you whisper with your bunkmates after lights-out!

Yes, there are also hot-water showers and flush toilets. You’ll bring your own sheets & towels, everything else is there for you!

The getaway you need

No responsibilities, no demands. Three days without thinking, problem-solving, meal planning.

Everything is planned for you, and all expenses (except any winery purchases) are included. Between activities, you’ll have free time to just…be.

Amazing women

Spending time in nature with an amazing group of women is an adventure in itself. You’ll be inspiring each other in a judgement-free zone.

No one will force you to socialize or “tell the group about yourself.” But you might laugh more in one weekend than you did in all of 2020!

Activities Galore!

NOTE: All activities are recommended if you want a fully transformative experience, but NOTHING is mandatory. Sneak off to hike, read, or nap if you’d rather, no questions asked.

Retreat Theme: Connect with the courage to live your dreams

I’ve learned a lot about courage on my adventures. Like how it frees you to follow you dreams and live a juicy, joyful life.

I can’t wait to share the techniques I use to rally my courage, stretch my comfort zone, and reach for my dreams without hesitation.

This isn’t Fear Factor — I promise no leeches or scorpions! Just outdoor fun with new friends and a few guided activities to help you discover your inner badass & connect with the courage to live your dreams.
