Countdown to our upcoming Rocky Mountain Retreat








Wouldn’t you love to feel energized, rejuvenated and ready to take on the world?


Of course you would!

Take some deep breaths of crisp, clean mountain air in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Our relaxing weekend retreat at Kananaskis Mountain Lodge will elevate your spirit and ground your soul. Rejuvenate in the rustic opulence of their brand new Kananaskis Nordic Spa.

Feast your eyes on the stunning panoramic mountain view awash in autumn’s glory, rugged mountain peaks touched with fresh snow. Let the power of the mountains fill you up. You’ll come away refreshed and ready to take on the world again.


Wouldn’t it be amazing to learn how to prioritize yourself without offending others, and find time in your busy life for YOU?

Sound impossible? It’s not! We’ll teach you to love yourself first in order to serve others more!


How would it feel to have more ease and breathing room in your life?

Our international speakers will share techniques to bring that ease back to your life.

Are you ready to reconnect with your soul sisters, to have deep, meaningful conversations and make friendships a priority in your life?

Life is too serious, isn’t it? Get ready to laugh all weekend long! Our champagne welcome reception features stand-up comedienne Carla White. Her comedy routine will have you in stitches! You’ll bond with your soul sisters over cocktails, and make new connections all weekend.

How would it feel to disconnect from social media and learn to be fully present and engaged in your life?

What if, instead of text alerts, you only heard the sound of the wind whispering through the pines for a few days? Connect with nature and new friends in person instead of online. Join your new friends for walks in the woods, or connect over a glass of wine around a campfire.


My heart says… YES!

What else is nearby?

Wildlife! Amazing scenery, possibly snow. Almost nothing else for 45 minutes in any direction! Kananaskis Village is a tiny, self-contained mountain village that was custom-built for the 1988 Olympics. You will feel crisp mountain air, hear the wind whispering through the pines, and feel the stress leave your body as you leave civilization behind.

Canmore and Banff, Alberta are the closest towns, world-renowned for their beauty. Jasper National Park is a few hours north, well worth taking a few extra days if you have time to add to your vacation.


What should I wear?

The dress is definitely reeelaaaaxxed! You might want to wear something sparkly for the VIP Champagne Reception. Pack your sweaters & boots just in case we get an early snow fall. Bring a sweater to the retreat sessions – you might be chilly. Hats and gloves should be tucked into your suitcase (along with a journal and a good book!). There is ice skating onsite, complete with rentals. If the snow comes early, there’s a ski resort next to the village. There is beautiful hiking in the area – bring comfy shoes for walking. There is an indoor mini-mall for some retail therapy and souvenirs for those back home.
