I’m a working mom, with two young children.  My work is in supporting other people. Taking a retreat to reset was so insanely needed but also difficult to follow through on.  I have attended a number of retreats in my life but this was truly the first time where I felt like I was just where I was supposed to be, 100% safe and I left feeling so grateful to have had this experience.  It truly shifted my perspective around scarcity in ways I never expected.

One of the things that was so remarkable about the weekend was the space Atina and Lauri created for all the participants.  I was able to share openly and deeply, receive feedback and support, learn about frameworks and concepts to support my development and be present alongside others on their journey.  The location was beautiful and serene, the food delicious and nourishing, the company playful and compassionate and the content enriching.

I can’t recommend it enough for someone looking to get some space from their daily lives and gain insights to take forward into their next chapter.

The Facilitators:  Atina White and Lauri Robbins Ericson will be facilitating your retreat. Atina and Lauri met in Mexico in 2012.  Their kinship was immediate, given their mutual passion for and commitment to facilitating individuals in creating full, rich lives and co-creating strong communities.  Since then, Lauri and Atina have been coaching individuals and groups in their own personal and professional development.  They are excited to share this weekend with you!
