JUNE 23 – 28, 2022

About The Retreat

As leaders and creators we often put so much burden on ourselves.  The pressure of building a business, creating our own brand, leading and managing employees and impacting so many others can lead us to forget about recharging ourselves.  We often are so focused on supporting others that we overlook our own health which can lead to burnout leaving us mentally and physically unhealthy.  If this sounds like you then the Activated retreat is your answer. 

Spend a 6 day, 5 night immersive experience focusing on aligning your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual practices with your mission in life. We focus on these elements, and more, by bringing in world renown facilitators.

You will be challenged to connect with yourself at a deeper level and build lifelong connections with amazing leaders from around the world.  When we learn to incorporate the best health and wellness techniques and practices into our lives we show up in a peak state both for others and ourselves.

What You Will Learn

  • How to fine tune your mind and body to be the healthiest version of yourself as you serve others.
  • The correlation between sleeping and eating patterns and how the affect your day to day health.

What You Will Gain

It was my first time attending the retreat , it was such a highly curated community, you will think that all of these strangers would not gel so well, but we did , we were all like minded, super passionate , motivated, focused, wanted to give back to the community and we were able to hangout and disconnect for a couple of days. We went boating, we volunteered for an afternoon, we meditated every day, did yoga and fitness classes in the morning on the beach, it was such an incredible experience, so if you are looking to reset, unwind, mastermind with others like minded individuals, this is a retreat for you. Hope to see you next year.

Each with their own en suite bathrooms, the homes bring you back and create a self space for rejuvenation and transformation.
