Are you going through a transition ~ business, career, family, health ~ or is it simply time for a change?

Do you want to take control of your future and decide what’s in and what’s out?

What’s possible when you begin to discover what’s you and what’s not at a nature-inspired retreat in stunning surroundings with an innovative program of self-discovery (and some gourmet food!)?
In this experiential, uplifting, and introspective retreat, come together with other women who want to actively create their next chapter. You will be supported, challenged, respected and stretched to get in touch with what is true for you, to figure out discern what’s next ~ and to move into designing your best life.

What an innovative time we have planned! Please, join us…
  • Without riding, we will work with a herd of horses to experience personal growth, learning and mindfulness. In EAGALA certified sessions our sensitive and intuitive horses will bring awareness and give powerful instant feedback without judgment or ego, helping you find your own solutions.
  • With the forest as our guide, we will sink into the support of the natural world and receive guidance on the questions we hold.  The forest mirrors areas of growth, decay, creativity and boundless resilience within us, allowing us to notice and embrace next steps in the fullness of our lives. 
  • We will craft the story of our own future – what we want, what we don’t, how to get it and who will be part.  Understand, articulate and sit with your own story –The Story of Me – what got you here, what’s here now… what will take you forward.
  • With plenty of time for personal exploration, reflection, being in community with others ~ even time for a massage, we will feed our minds, bodies and souls.

Join us for this incredible three-night, all-inclusive event, which includes the inspirational program across four days and all gourmet meals starting with dinner on the first day, and ending with grab-and-go lunch on the last day. For sleeping, you have your choice of elegant rooms with outdoor hot tubs to tipis (yes, tipis!) – your choice. Additional services can be booked for the open afternoon on Day 2.  Come alone or bring a friend for added support and accountability.

What previous retreat guests are saying:
" This adventure came at the perfect time, was the perfect setting, and everyone was fantastic.  I met new friends, relaxed, dugged deeply, ate and ate and ate, talked to the trees and animals, and spent lots of time figuring out what's next. Thank you!"

 "It was such a fabulous week and I am so very blessed to have met each and every one of you. I cannot wait to see how we all progress in the coming weeks and months throughout our "check ins.""

​ "I 'experienced' nature in a whole new space and the opportunities were delivered with such creativity, passion and wisdom. At 54 and an outside enthusiast for years, today thanks to Forest Therapy I see a new nature...which gives me personal guidance and will benefit my connection and balance for years to come."
