An incredible investment in yourself and commitment to long-lasting growth, our MEtreats kick off with a two and a half day all-inclusive tranquil getaway nestled in Colorado’s breathtaking Rocky Mountains. During this time, you will learn, study, practice and reflect on the principles of Mindfulness.
Our expert facilitators are gifted at creating and leading a psychologically safe space so the connection you form with other participants is meaningful and long-lasting. There are shared accommodations, meals and activities such as hiking, yoga and meditation.
After you return home, we support your commitment for the next eight weeks as you incorporate the Mindfulness principles and practices into your everyday life. You will receive weekly email reminders, tips and advice as well as have access to a private Facebook community of previous retreat participants. At the end of eight weeks, your original cohort will reconvene for an interactive capstone webinar with your retreat facilitators..
Individuals interested in engaging in content and activities that deepen their understanding of their own purpose, ethics, principles, motivations and conduct. Participants should be open to meaningful connection with their fellow participants who will be sharing experiences, meals and accommodations.
At the end of your eight weeks of continued practice, your MEtreat experience culminates in a webinar hosted by your retreat facilitators. This webinar offers you a chance to reconnect with your original cohort, review progress and create a plan for long-term integration of the Mindfulness practices.
After the MEtreat experience, participants benefit from expanded self-awareness, an understanding of what it means to lead from a centered perspective, connections with others on a similar journey, a commitment to long-term grown and development as well as individual renewal and restoration.
