Who is this retreat for?
If you are a woman seeking to know yourself, to know your purpose, to lead self and others, to build community with other women, and to align who you are with what you do, then this retreat is for you!
What will you get from coming?
Through our time together, you’ll learn to access your inner power to lead yourself and others, both confidently and soulfully. By building a community with other women, you’ll gain a new tribe for your new vibe. You’ll also be given the framework and tools for a year-long gratitude practice, which will give you the knowledge you need to “muscle up” your emotional quotient (EQ). Finally, you’ll explore the tenants of a graceful leader, which will take your leadership to a powerful, compassionate, and soulful level.
Where is the retreat?
Come enjoy Killington, Vermont during peak fall foliage season! As the leaves fall to the ground, so will we shed old stories to make way for new opportunities. Upon entering, the beauty of the home pales in comparison to the rolling hills and luscious space. The home we’re in has two large kitchens, large bedrooms, private bathrooms, and a hot tub. Bring a warm jacket for our Sisterhood fireside chats. Don’t worry—if it’s too cold, we’ll have our chats in the cozy community seating area.
When is the retreat?
The retreat starts at 7 pm on Sunday, October 7th and ends after breakfast on Thursday, October 11 (so you can head home with a full belly, heart, and soul). Why October? For eleven years, I’ve imagined holding a retreat for women in Vermont in the fall. It’s my favorite place, and I want to share that doing what I love with amazing people.
Why would you want to come to the retreat?
In the famous words of Marshall Goldsmith, “What got you here won’t get you there.” When you join this retreat, you’ll give yourself physical, emotional, and soulful rest so you can integrate and connect your mind, body, and soul. This time allows you to press pause and reflect to learn and/or reshape your story. Our community is a safe place for you to dig into the tough stuff and dive deeper into who you’re meant to be.
This 5-day experience is for women 21 and over who want to explore the leader within themselves. Whether it’s regarding work, your personal life, or both, The Power of a Graceful Leader is designed to help you step into your greatness.
