This is everything I wish I had known when I started out. I want to share it ALL with you. You don't have to go it alone!

I have organized close to 50 retreats within North America, Central America, Africa, Europe and the Caribbean. This includes one-day retreats, weekend retreats and weeklong retreats. Though these can look very different on the surface, the planning process is remarkably similar. It can feel overwhelming at first's just a matter of opening the gates to information - which is what we do here in RETREATS UNLOCKED.

Once you have a step by step roadmap, things will feel a lot more manageable and you'll move forward with confidence! We will be diving into:




  • What is your why?

  • Who is your dream retreater?

  • How do you build a community of folks who will attend?

  • Define priorities for your retreat setting.

  • Choose your ideal group size.

  • Should you work solo or collab?

  • How much lead time do you need?




  • Best times of year, off-season gems and more.

  • How to choose a retreat center - know the most important questions to ask!

  • Pros and cons of renting a space and self-hosting.

  • Getting the contract details down - assessing risk and how to negotiate.

  • Creating a well-flowing retreat schedule

  • Theming for a deeper experience and lasting impact.

  • Strategies for inclusion and variety so everyone feels welcome (without overworking yourself!)
