What is a MEtreat?

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 MEtreat’s principles.

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 these 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..

Who should participate?

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.

Mindfulness for Leaders

Register for: March 14 - 16 & October 17 - 19

Practicing mindfulness is becoming more commonplace. How does it actually help you? Richie Davidson, neuroscientist at the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, explains that practicing mindfulness daily increases neuroplasticity in parts of the brain that control cognitive flexibility; executive functioning like planning, problem solving and emotion regulation; and susceptibility to stress and anxiety. The Mindfulness for Leaders MEtreat helps create the space between your thoughts and actions that is needed to instill a renewed intentionality in your approach to leadership. You'll explore how to embrace each moment with its tender opportunity for leading, growing and inspiring. The MEtreat will deepen your sense of self and expand how you function as a leader. You'll find pearls of wisdom that can be directly applied to your personal and professional life experiences.

Practice of Love

Register for: June 20 - 22

Love is a concept we’re comfortable talking about at home, yet we rarely hear about it at work. The benefits of compassion have a positive impact in every aspect of our lives, including our professional lives, spurring companies like Whole Foods Market, PepsiCo and Zappos to include it as one of their primary guiding values. The principles and practices of the Practice of Love MEtreat will deepen your experience and understanding of love and increase your capacity to give and receive love as a way of life so that you feel more engaged and loved at work and home. Through an Emergenetics lens, you will explore how each Attribute prefers to receive love and learn how you as an individual feel cared for in your work and home life. The Harvard Business Review reports that creating this culture of compassion at work and home will lead to increased happiness, commitment and reciprocity.

Finding Your Inner Authority

Register for: July 25 - 27

Define leadership for yourself. The Finding Your Inner Authority MEtreat is an opportunity to listen to your inner truth and develop the courage to follow its wisdom. Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs suggests that developing a strong sense of self leads to increased confidence, resourcefulness and creativity, all of which are vital skills for enhancing productivity in the workplace. The principles and practices presented in this retreat will empower you to hear your own voice, acknowledge the fears that limit your capacity to trust and act on your voice and help you thrive by utilizing your inner strengths. The Emergenetics Attributes will guide how you understand and interact with these concepts.
