3-Night All-Inclusive Resort retreat in the Poconos, USA!

REGISTRATION CLOSES July 31st, 2024

ONLY 5 SPOTS LEFT!!!

You’re over-obligated.  Overwhelmed.  

With the constant demands of an overbooked calendar, you feel like your fire has gone out.

You’ve been pushing too hard for too long.    

You’re so caught up in the grind, you don’t even know where to start to rekindle your inner flame.  

Life has put your fire out.

And now you’re just so OVER being over-committed and over-tired.  

You need to rest, restore your strength, get clear on who you are and what you want.

Does this sound like you?

My friend, you’ll be so much more fulfilled if you’re lit up.  

You – and everyone around you – need your fire.  

As the one who takes care of so many and so much, you need (and deserve) to be taken care of.  You need (and deserve) a space where you can put down the burdens of your day-to-day life and gain clarity on which ones need to be picked back up.  

You need to re-ignite your inner fire and become yourself, so that you can make the impact you were put on earth to make – and enjoy your life at the same time.  

Only 5 spots left on this retreat!

Wednesday, July 31st, 2024 is the last day that you can sign up for this retreat. Don’t wait!!! 

If you feel…

  • exhausted, burned out, and fed up
  • like you are missing your life because you’re SO TIRED, like life is happening around you but you’re not in it
  • so fatigued that you can’t focus and you don’t know how much longer you can keep running at this pace
  • sluggish, lethargic, like you’re moving in slow motion and thinking in a fog
  • empty and unfulfilled and just not like yourself…

Then the Strength & Shield Coaching Ignite  Retreat is for YOU.

As a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, you know I take food seriously!  Every day you’ll enjoy artfully crafted gourmet meals included as part of  your experience.  

At Woodloch, the “cuisine features hand-picked ingredients from the on-property garden and local farms along with healthy cooking techniques that will delight.

Elevated amongst the tree tops with glimpses of the glistening private lake, TREE Restaurant and Bar offers a diverse menu that is anything but the ordinary spa cuisine. With a focus on starting with only the best ingredients, the Chef team hand selects naturally-raised meats, fish, and organic, locally grown vegetables.
