About The Retreat

Join us for an immersive experience to assess and strengthen your wellbeing, particularly in the workplace. Learn how to transform your ability to lead yourself and others by discovering the intersection of inner balance and the six personas of a thriving leader. This is where you find sustained joy.

Do you feel disconnected, disempowered, and lack consistent wellbeing practices? Do competing priorities, serving others well, staying true to your values and purpose, and integrating all aspects of your life pose seemingly insurmountable challenges?

Your heart knows that the words you speak, like a pebble dropped in a pond, can ripple empowerment and profoundly change your perception of self and others. The energy you create when your words express your values impacts relationships and determines the balance in your life. Whether leading yourself or others, when you tap into the intuitive dimension of intelligence guiding your words, you realize that you can excel personally and professionally – and thrive!

This transformative experience is for you if you desire to lead yourself, your life, and others with greater ease. You will elevate your leadership skills, self-awareness and presence by cultivating community, movement, energetic hygiene and your intuition.

Terre Short is a force of nature! Over the past 10 years I’ve had the opportunity to witness Terre’s prowess in both clinical and educational settings. She brings energy, expertise, and experience to whatever task she undertakes and is especially adroit at embodying and teaching communication. She understands the power of words as well as nonverbal signals and astutely practices the three key communication elements: sending, receiving, and discerning that which is in-between. If you have a chance to work with her as a coach, speaker or facilitator, don’t pass it up.

I met Terre Short when Parkview Health System hired the Studer Group to improve the system’s employee engagement, care quality, and patient satisfaction scores. As Parkview’s coach, Terre did an incredible job instilling a sense of urgency with our leadership team. In her role, Terre also possessed tremendous speaking skills, directly inspiring our leaders to take ownership and drive improvements in their specific areas. Terre helped set the foundation for the significant improvements that occurred at Parkview Health System over the following two years.

Lisa is gifted beyond words. With Justin’s guidance she helped me gain perspective on the meaning of a loss in ways I could have never conceived. I was deeply moved by our session and have learned to tap into my ‘Justin’ on the other side. I’ve learned to ask and to receive with Lisa’s help.
- Pamela


Truly amazing and I feel blessed to have been a part of this Thriving Leader Retreat. I received easy tools that I can use to apply to my personal wellbeing as well as serve me to be a better leader and better for all those around me.
- Kristina Lawrence


Lisa DeLong’s achingly beautiful story of life, love, and loss is a very personal and powerful journey. We have been friends for over a decade, and her son Justin was one of my heroes. Lisa’s son Jacob, who s also one of my heroes, has been at war with the disease that took his brother’s life. Blood Brothers is a real life experience o hope, compassion, and faith. Once you meet this mother and her family, your life will change forever.
- Kathy Ireland

CEO, Kathy Ireland Worldwide

I wanted you to know what a genuine articulate, compassion-centered speaker Lisa DeLong has been on several occasions while working with Providence Trinity Care Hospice Health Services. Although the topics have often been very delicate, she always maintained a professional and personal presence that brought home the message desired. On several occasion we asked to to be prepared to sell her book, Blood Brothers. Not surprising that the lines were long and each book sold with a caring word. She has a particular gift at “knowing her audience”. Intuitively she can listen and lead, knowing when it is time to make certain information known. I do consider the times we have made presentations or met personally with others a privilege.
- Gay Walker

RN CHPN, Providence Heath Services, Trinity Kids Care

My experience with Lisa was phenomenal. Through the use of music and energy we were able to go on a spiritual and meditative journey, aligned uniquely for me. I was almost brought to tears as I felt as though I had been spiritually baptized: life and purpose and simple bliss were restored. Through our experience, I felt as though I were just at the tip of an iceberg; that in fact my recent tragedy was not an end-all-be-all but rather a fresh start. For now, I am guided through the dark with the wisdom and direction of the universe and its interconnectedness.

I am buzzing right now – at the Thriving Leader Collaborative Retreat, I got to connect with strangers who were friends ready to be had. It was the most beautiful, heartfelt, inspiring weekend where we got to talk about things we don’t always talk about. They helped us feel safe and to find a way in the corporate world to come from the heart and honor our intuition.
- Melissa Reaves


The greatest impact for me at the Retreat was the established community. Having a place to come and let everything else in the world go, to be myself and able to be completely open for break throughs. Something I really wanted and deserved. It gave a place to invest in yourself and be so richly rewarded. I highly recommend this retreat.
- Bridget Cook-Burch


DeAnna is magical. The first thing I said after having my first session with her is, “I have never felt so seen.” DeAnna holds space for you and only you. She does not interject with her own ideas of what she thinks you should do or be; instead, she holds up a mirror to help you remember who you are. I feel immensely supported by her and our conversations are so expansive. She will always be my spiritual doula.
- Amber Lodeesen

Reiki healer, H.I.I.T facilitator, Selah Wellness Co-Founder

“Every event that I have attended hosted by DeAnna has been so incredibly rewarding because of the space she holds and the intention that she sets. It’s always deep and powerful!”
- Niki Tonik

When I first reached out to DeAnna to be my coach, I wasn’t logically sure what to expect – but my soul innately knew I was in for a powerful (and necessary) journey – and trusted DeAnna as my priestess. Our sessions are a divine combination of intuition, reflection, encouragement, and remembrance. If you know you’re on the verge of birthing the next level of yourself, DeAnna is the doula for you.

Many blessings to you and your family,

- Tracie


I am not particularly a spiritual person, so I did not know what to expect at this retreat. I loved the mix of all sides – the intuitive and the corporate side – I am super excited to blend the two. And the team was AMAZING.
- Erin Wier


The Thriving Leader Collaborative Retreat has been the most incredible experience to relax in peace and be out in nature, and have the time and space to enjoy that thoroughly while learning with other phenomenal leaders. The guidance from the TLC team allowed me to think through those next stages of growth and those next learnings and evolutions of how I’ll lead my business to success and how I will deliver success. I’m so thrilled I was able to be here.
