What if you could
unlock a whole new chapter in your life?

One in which you feel inspired when you lift your head off the pillow
and filled with gratitude when you lay back down at the close of a well lived day.

One in which the light within you shines so bright that it ripples out into everything you do.
Not only does it shine outward, but it guides you from within, gives you a net of direction to lean into when life throws you lemons, and a spoon to stir when you are ready to make lemonade.

This light the the WHY. 

One word.
One feeling.
Your carefully chosen WHY
will unlock a whole new chapter,
and this 2 night retreat is your first step.

Women, Wine, & WHY

WHY workshops

Not only will we circle together for an incredible exploration of the WHY and all the ways it feeds your soul and fuels your existence, we will dive into how you can take away what you've learned and apply it to your life back at home.

Throughout the two days I'll lead gentle and invigorating workshops to help you better understand what inspires you, what fuels you, and what you need to live a life that feels both more rewarding and more inviting. 

Because some really personal and deep processing can come up in this work we will maintain a safe group space for everyone, and you will also have access to a private coaching call with me in the weeks after the retreat. This will be an opportunity for you to privately reflect on and fine tune what you learned so that it can serve you in the best possible way as you intergrate these new awarenesses back into your life.


This is when we get crafty! After our WHY exploration we'll dive into a physical expression of our WHY, allowing our vision to flow through our hands. Artist Kiah Tinkham will guide us through the creation of an embroidered piece of art that represents our WHY word. There's no right or wrong way to do this and you need no prior experience.

Artist bio:

Kiah is a creator at heart. During her days she works as the preschool director at a local K-8 private school. She's friendly, fun, and full of inspiration!

Ayurveda for Healthy Living Workshop

The multi-passionate Erica Travis who will be leading our yoga, and nourishing you with massage, will also lead us in a health and wellness workshop founded in ancient Ayurvedic wisdom.

"The two main guiding principles of Ayurveda are 1) the mind and the body are inextricably connected, and 2) nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind. Freedom from illness depends upon expanding our own awareness, bringing it into balance, and then extending that balance to the body."


Nourishing and Nurturing Meals

Imagine a whole weekend of nourishing food? We are fortunate enough to have Melissa Stevens catering our meals for this event. Melissa is an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach,  and whole food plant-based chef. She focuses on fuel driven nourishment from the inside out. She believes that when we restore our bodies to their natural state of health, we can step out into the world with confidence, clarity and conviction.

A perfect way to give your body the self-care it needs to return home feeling vibrant and alive.

Photographic Capture

There's nothing quite like a photo to remind you of a special time in your life. That's why this weekend will include photography by Julie Sonntag, who will both journal our experience AND take solo shots of you for your future memory or marketing. You'll also receive digital copies of a few favorite group shots from the retreat to treasure forever.

Julie's ability to capture the beauty of the human spirit will take your breath away. She is a kind and gentle soul, with a talent for the arts.
