Beyond Survive to Thrive:

Deep Listening, Serenity &
Intuitive Living

Join us at the Utopian New Harmony Inn for Rest, Renewal & Re-Visioning

April 19-21, 2024,

with optional April 18 add-on

Why Choose Beyond Survive to Thrive:

Join us as we engage sustained sacred space to listen to our body and heart, release what no longer serves us, and create a life worth living. Good vision requires a solid foundation, so we will explore how our limiting beliefs link to the past, and learn to get out of the way as our bodies naturally move toward releasing stress. We will cultivate connection with our emotional & spiritual self through learning deep listening, within and without. Our inner knowing will then guide us toward creating powerful vision & the practical steps to grow that vision into a life we love. A weekend dedicated to the serenity of intuitive living!

    What Our Clients Are Saying

    I attended this retreat hoping to receive growth on my spiritual journey. I gained clarity on goals/visions and I am beginning to set intentions to move toward this vision. I have clarity about what to do next. This retreat was fun and self-revealing. The opportunity to share and experience others’ stories helped me realize we all have wounds and we all can grow.

    – C. B.

    When I signed up for the retreat, I was looking for new ways to find myself/spirituality. The retreat flowed well and was very holistic. I felt very empowered and inspired by people sharing/validating on a deep level—I felt I found friendships and mentors. The agenda flow and breaks where I could easily go back to my room

    and reset were helpful.

    – B. E.

    This retreat gives women the ability to have support in finding and creating a vision in their life. Everyone participating made me feel included with no judgment. The facilitators were open, warm and made the experience feel very individualized and inclusive at the same time. The difference in ages and different, diverse life paths was an aspect that I liked most about the program. The most valuable thing I gained was the acceptance to be me.

    – M. G.

    This investment was a big one for me, but I hoped to get more energy, respite, and to figure out how to move forward. I wanted to get deeper into the things I heard Renee and Jan talk about online. This retreat was life changing and life affirming! I learned I CAN do this work, I am NOT completely broken, and I left with new friends and lots of tools to develop. The body work, meditations and music added to the experience. Loved it! Great job! More please!

    – J. K.
