If You Could Spend Two Days Evolving Yourself, Are You Ready for What Could Happen?
When I first met Jacque, she had been in her own business for about six months, having quit her job after a divorce with the awareness that life had much more to offer her.
At that point, I wasn’t offering personal retreats – it was actually Jacque’s idea to do a 1:1 retreat with me because she felt that there would be new insights and an experience that would help her to integrate all that she had learned while in her own business. She had pieces of information, lots of perspectives from lots of people she had studied, tons of ideas that didn’t seem to take off and didn’t know her next action step. She felt that my guidance would bring it all together.
During the course of the retreat, as soon as we would talk about Jacque’s business, her energy would drop – significantly. Through co-creative dialogue, she revealed some key facets of herself that would never have come to light without the in-person experience… about how she was redecorating her house, she travelled with her pastels for drawing / painting and that she was drawn to a local art fair in the area on her own time (three times!). When she talked about art, her face lit up! She described her childhood creations, how she could walk down the street on vacation in a new city with her jewelry and pay for her trip, and the joy she felt in helping others see the vibrancy in daily life through color and art. It became obvious that she was “off” in expressing her authentic self in her business – she was trying to be a traditional business woman, which was sucking her energy dry!
By the time she left, Jacque realized that a huge part of her had gone unexpressed. She had not only the insight to “get” that she is an artist at heart, but also had a focused, practical business plan for how to turn her art into a business. Jacque was successful in integrating all of what she knew and who she was into one single turning point to recreate her life as a result of the personal evolution retreat. Her being free to be who she really is has changed her life in immeasurable ways… and she continues to explore all of what that means in the successful expression of her true essence.
