Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know what to choose: a retreat, coaching, or workshop?
That all depends on your needs, time, and resources you have available. If getting away on a retreat isn’t feasible right now yet you really some support and guidance, have some coaching sessions first until you can join us on a retreat. Another option is to join us for a retreat and continue your healing with follow up coaching afterwards. Workshops are perfect for someone who wants information in a concise group format. Give us a call and we can help you with your options and best course of action.
I’ve done so much therapy in my life and I have awareness, I just don’t know what to do next…I feel stuck! Can you help?
Absolutely! Coaching or a retreat is a perfect place to put all that therapy and awareness into action. The insight we gain in therapy is invaluable to our growth, but often times understanding the “What” is where the therapeutic benefits end. The “How” is next….How can you take what you know about yourself and start to make the necessary changes to move forward? Our Retreats and Coaching can help answer that question.
What if my relationship status is “complicated”?
That’s OK! We understand that relationships are complicated and the answers about what to do next aren’t always seamless or clear. If you are struggling with conflicting thoughts about a relationship and need support or guidance, we can help.
Will I have to participate in everything on a retreat? What if there’s something I’m afraid of or don’t want to do?
No one will ever be asked or forced to do anything that makes them uncomfortable. However, our retreats are designed to educate, inspire, and illuminate participants through various modalities in a safe and intimate environment. In addition to educational conversation and group discussion, we also incorporate activities to supplement the information you will be learning. We encourage participation in all aspects of the retreat in order to receive the full benefits and there will be ample support as you work toward your personal breakthroughs. Everyone will be treated with utmost grace and integrity.
What if I don’t really know what my goals are, I just know I need to do something?
Then you are a terrific candidate for Coaching. The coaching process is a useful tool for women who feel “stuck” and don’t know what to do – they just know they need to do SOMETHING. My job is to help you find out what that “something” is. We will work together to find your path and get you moving again.
What if I just can’t get away but really need a retreat?
Not everyone has the freedom to be able to get on a plane and get away. In these cases you may want to consider Coaching or Private Retreat. Please contact us for more info. If neither of these are possible, we would be happy to make a referral to resources in your area that can help.
Who will be on the retreat?
Women just like you! Each participant is required to have an in-depth assessment before registration is granted. This is done to assure that the needs of the participants and the retreat are compatible. We do everything we can to make sure your retreat is a positive and healing experience. Everyone will be in a different place with regards to their personal situation, yet the goal will be the same – to learn and grow and have fun doing it! Your retreat will be led by Jill Vermeire and guest facilitators. Read more here.
I’m gay. Can I still attend a retreat?
Hey…a relationship is a relationship. The questions are just the same no matter what your orientation. If you are a woman and you are in need of answers about relationships…please join us.
Do I have to have a roommate or can I have my own room?
That’s up to you! If you are attending with a friend you are welcome to room together. If you would like to share a room with another participant we will be happy to connect you with other women who wish to do the same. And if you need your space and want your own room that’s perfectly alright. Every retreat participant makes their own travel reservations and the necessary information will be provided once your application has been approved and deposit received. We are here to help…just ask.
How much do retreats cost?
Every retreat will be priced based on location, duration, and amenities/activities. The amount posted is for the retreat itself unless otherwise stated. You are responsible for your own travel expenses and possibly your own accommodations depending on the retreat. Once your payment is received you will be emailed an itinerary and retreat details so you can make your hotel and flight arrangements accordingly.
