Looking Back, Leaping Forward Retreat

January 8, 2022 @ 9:00 am3:00 pm CST


It’s important to find space and time for pause, reflection, and listening that are “set apart” for intentionally meeting with our most authentic selves and with the Divine. What do you want to create more of in your life? What do you want to let go of? What do you hope and pray for? What do you love or are passionate about?

This retreat is your invitation to step out of ordinary life and responsibilities and listen to what your life is telling you about who you are, and perhaps who you long to be. It’s space and time for you to pause, reflect, and listen, to intentionally meet with your most authentic self and see where the Divine is showing up in your life. We want you to walk away from this time saying, “My life, all of it, is sacred……period.”

During this retreat, we will reflect on the successes and challenges of the past year, think about what you are led towards for the coming year, and create intentions and a vision board for the next year and beyond. Using the creative process to transform, a group to reflect with, and space for intentional listening, we will provide an opportunity for positive change.


What to expect from our time together:

  • Deeply reflective, sacred-listening space in which we can explore our individual stories and weave them into a tapestry of shared truths. We will spend time in large groups, small groups, and make space for individual reflection.

  • Time and breathing room for creativity, reflection, and fun!

  • Structured prompts to reflect on the past year, your achievements, learning, and challenges. 

  • Guidance on setting an intention for the next year, connecting with your purpose, and choosing a WORD that encompasses this intention

  • Clarity on what you really want (No more accepting someone else’s dreams)

  • Space and time to map out your ideal outcomes in each area of your life. Connect your vision and dreams with your desires, meaning, and purpose. 

  • Inspiration, ideas, and guidance to create a Vision Board that is uniquely yours. Vision Boards are a powerful way of checking in with your desires and living in alignment with who you really are, helping you live a more fulfilling and meaningful life. They can serve as inspiration and a reminder not to lose sight of your heartfelt desires. (It will be so much more than just cutting and pasting a few pictures!)

  • Connect with like-minded people and potential accountability partners

  • Aromatic essential oil use throughout the day

  • A ritual for endings and beginnings

Healthy snacks and lunch are included. All materials you will need will be supplied.
