Top Questions Women’s retreats

If you’ve ever thought about attending a Spiritual Retreat, you’ll want to ask yourself some questions before you embark on your magical journey. Retreats are for people that are willing and ready to grow. Ask yourself the following questions:

Are you ready to give yourself permission to finally give back and invest in yourself?

It’s common to fall in love with the idea of attending a retreat and taking sacred time for yourself away from the rest of the world, but are you willing to pay what it costs to stay in alignment with what your Soul truly wants?  Are you willing to give yourself permission to sign up for the retreat? There’s no need to explain yourself to others and check in to see if you are allowed to go on this journey. You should be willing to say “This is what I have to do for me. I give myself permission.”

Is your leader someone you trust and respect?

The person who runs the retreat sets the tone of the whole experience. There are small details that help everything flow harmoniously, including the group that attends.  Your teacher should be someone you can count on to lead the group through a sacred experience; an experience that is filled with peace, relaxation, knowledge, and someone that can hold space for you on your journey.

When exploring different retreat options make sure your retreat leader has done many many retreats and looks at this as a business instead of a free vacation. I personally have been leading women’s retreats since 2008.

As a Soul Coach, and Intuitive I truly believe in creating a schedule that allows time to not only be together as a group, but also allows my participants time to have personal sacred moments. I believe in the power of intention throughout the whole process of creating my retreats.  Sometimes a quiet presence and intention is what is needed for each personal journey. I am the one that holds the space for them to have their experience.

Does the environment feel energetically aligned with what your soul craves?

Think about what kind of setting you are looking for, while experiencing this sacred journey.  The environment should feel calming, beautiful, heart opening, and sacred. It should be a  place that feels like vacation, while learning to come back to yourself once again.

         It’s very easy to put off a retreat until “next time” but will there ever be a good time? We must value ourselves enough to recharge and invest in ourselves. You can’t put a price on self-care. A retreat is the perfect spot to be separated from the rest of the world and come back to your center. If you attend the retreat of your dreams, you will never be the same again.
