TAKE OWNERSHIP OF YOUR INNER POWER
Better understand where you draw your energy from, how you can rebound from the responsibilities and the challenges that deplete you, and harness the practices that help you quickly return to and stand strong in your power.
Develop your resilience with concrete practices to replenish your well of physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual energy.
Discover or deepen what has you feel and show up as grounded, centred and calm.
Show up as more authentic in your leadership so you better inspire trust in your team.
Develop the foundation that will enhance your confidence.
This is a highly unique leadership development retreat specifically designed around what the research tells us helps women to thrive as leaders.
Who this retreat is for:
Women who understand the importance of having a deep well of physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual strength to draw on.
Having practices to keep this well full is what drives your ability to create personal achievements and fulfillment, and this, in turn, inspires others.
You are an intelligent and accomplished woman, yet you have a growing sense of frustration with being expected to follow the grooves laid down by a history that expects you to play by a constricting rulebook.
You also have a deep desire for a more authentic, grounded experience so you can shape your leadership from values, vision, and the unique and powerful perspectives only you, as a woman, can bring. You want to live and lead heart-first with a courage and power rooted in your values.
You are either emerging in your leadership, brimming with ideas and enthusiasm, and ready to be your most powerful self. Or, perhaps you are mid-career and you want to discover deeper truths about yourself, leverage your unique strengths and re-invigorate your presence as a leader.
Either way, you want to bring the whole of yourself into how you show up as a leader and desire a retreat that is wholly focused on helping you be a woman who leads like a woman - from inspiration, intuition, interrelation and inclusion.

Nancy Chenier, RYT-200 Yoga Instructor
The strength and agility of the body and mind are gifts that we carry off the mat and into the world, enabling us to face life’s challenges–be they great or mundane–with steadiness and ease. My hope is to nurture those gifts on the mat with mindfulness as well as a sense of joy. Having studied with some incredible teachers in Canada and abroad, I’m honoured to be able to share the practice with others.
Delaney Tosh, PCC, CPCC
My desire is a world fundamentally changed by the contributions, voices and participation of women who are living and leading from their essential, most powerful selves.
My sixteen years experience coaching leaders, leadership teams and business owners, supporting them in leadership development, strategic planning, business development and team productivity has made one thing clear to me: that women continue to come under intense pressure and scrutiny when they take the lead. Frustrated by witnessing brilliant women playing down their brilliance to fit in and not stepping wholly into their power authentically, I have evolved my work to focus solely on coaching women of vision; women who wish to lead from their whole selves with confidence and the savvy to navigate the challenges they face.
What we believe:
WOMEN HAVE THE ADVANTAGE
It is not BS that women's brains are wired differently than men's - the research is in and it overwhelmingly outlines these differences.
However, what the research also shows is that these differences are women's superpowers, or could be, so long as we know how to harness them.
It is critical that the inspiration that is inherent in how women think and operate emerges as a paradigm shift to the concept of leadership.
Women do leadership differently. This matters.
Women who lead like women - from inspiration, intuition, interrelation and inclusion - will be our change agents, co-creating a more positive and inclusive world.
