CwYL - In person women's retreaT

February 8th - 11th, 2018

This retreat builds on and complements the six month program by going deeper into some of the existing frameworks, and introducing new tools and strategies to help you gain clarity and direction.

The purpose of this retreat is to give you:

  • Quiet time and space to focus on your next career move
  • Opportunity to go deeper and get individualized, focused attention and practical tips
  • Build greater community, camaraderie and connections with others on a similar journey
  • More clarity on your goals and a concrete vision of what you’re looking for
  • Exercises and powerful healing modalities that can only be done in person
  • A big push forward to progress towards Creating Work You Love!
  • learn even more from the successes and challenges of others and receive support from others similarly seeking to CWYL
  • Inspiration, relaxation and fun!

What to expect?

During this four day retreat, you'll get additional clarity and coaching, greater insights from Vanessa, shared learnings from other participants, have the chance to meet everyone in person to strengthen connections, prioritize yourself and this journey, and get in some quality relaxation and pampering time to boot!

There will be group sessions, yoga, meditation, quiet time to reflect and process, sleep (!), delicious & local healthy food made by a personal chef, more tailored, specific coaching with Vanessa, powerful healing and community.

This weekend is your time to focus on this effort, distraction free.

Leaving your normal routine and coming to a beautiful location in nature will give you the time and emotional space for longer term thinking and planning. You’ll leave with even greater clarity around what you want, specific action steps, and a clear plan on how to move forward, as well as a network of support and feedback on your personal situation.
