This luxurious, all-inclusive, life-changing retreat offers time and space to move through grief, to heal and to discover purpose and joy. 6 widows will learn how to thrive in the next chapter of their story. This retreat will support guests to return home with hope, clarity and tools to embrace their new future while still remembering the love of their life.

As a widow, I know the pain and devastation of losing the love of your life and am living proof that you can go from surviving to thriving. I know what it is like to have your world stop while everyone else moves on. I know what it is like to be stuck and wonder what to do next. I know first-hand that pain is real - but so is hope and so is healing. 

This is an invitation to a 6-day intimate healing experience with me and 5 other widows. 

This is an invitation to go deep into your broken heart, to free you from pain. 

This is an invitation to rediscover who you are and how to thrive in the next chapter of your story. as we write it together.

This is an invitation to be pampered and cared for surrounded by breathtaking views, away from the noise and busyness of life. 

Allow me to be your personal guide as we take this journey through one-on-one private sessions as well as impactful intimate group sessions with 5  women on the same journey. It’s not about forgetting your loved one. It’s about remembering as you live forward. 

This is an invitation for transformation in the deepest places. And it lasts more than 6 days with 30 days of pre-care and 30 days of post-care included, so we know each other before you arrive and you leave with support in place to live out the personalized Thrive Plan we create.  

Will you join me?

If you are a recent widow or even if it’s been years, if you are still hurting, this is for you as we are going to be specifically working on healing your heart.  It is common, that even 5 years later, we are still not healed.  Not because we don’t want to be, but because we haven’t had the tools.  We will give them to you and personally walk you through the healing journey I do with my clients all the time.  So please don’t think that if it’s been years since you lost your husband, you don’t belong.  You do!

If you feel stuck and just don’t know how to move forward and create a beautiful life for yourself, then this retreat is for you.  Maybe you are surviving, but you want to thrive.  Maybe you thought you would be further along than this.  We are going to create a comprehensive thrive plan for every area of your life.  We are going to create it together and we are going to support you afterward to make sure you succeed.

If you would like to have a new community of friends who understand you, that you can relate to and have fun with – then this is for you.  You are going to feel so loved and pampered! I have the most compassionate and caring team of women ever and we love what we do! Because it is so intimate, and it is a family-like atmosphere we are going to deeply connect.  And I will be offering future trips and events for participants so we are creating a community that you can do future fun things with if you would like to.


I had to really think about how to design this.  I could have created something for 100 women at a hotel somewhere and give them some tools and inspiration – but that would not give me the results I wanted for them.  But it would cost a lot less.

I wanted a life-changing transformation!  And to get that, it must be small and intimate, and it must be personalized and tailored to each woman, where she is at and what her needs are.  We are spending so much one-on-one time with you and we are working with you 30 days before and 30 days after the retreat.  This is not just 6 days!  This is truly comprehensive and in-depth. I had to limit it to 6 women.

I could have chosen a hotel but to create the family atmosphere of a home, I chose a private chateau where we can relax and it sets the tone for what we are trying to accomplish.  You will be pampered and won’t have to lift a finger.


Begins Wednesday, November 6th at 4pm and ends Monday, November 11th at 10am. (Monday is a holiday so we thought that might make it easier for some women who need to take time off work)


Absolutely everything except your travel to the event.  All lodging, meals, pampering services, girls night out event, activities, etc.  We take care of everything once you arrive.


I would tell you that are absolutely normal and that is what the other ladies feel as well. As much as we want to improve, and take these steps, it is also scary when we go out of our comfort zone and make ourselves vulnerable. We will do everything we can to put you at ease before you even arrive. That is part of the 30 days pre-care. Don't let fear hold you back. It takes courage to heal and live again!


You can’t register online as I want to talk to you to make sure this is the right fit and answer any questions you have.  If it isn’t, I will tell you.  So please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via email, phone or on the form on this page and we will set up a time to chat. 😊
