*Due to the small-group nature of the event, all applicants will be vetted through a video interview and series of questions. Our goal is to be sure the mix of personalities will work well together and everyone has similar goals and mindset for the event. We do not discriminate against anyone, however, this event is for women only.
GOOD TO KNOW: You will be sharing a room, and possibly sharing a bed, which makes this retreat great for friends! There are two rooms with twin beds, 1 queen bedroom, and 1 king bedroom. Your preference will be noted on your application and will be first come, first serve. If you wish to have a room all to yourself, you will be required to register for two spots. No discounts will be given.
