The Reloveution Retreat
Reset. Realign. Rise. Reloveutionize. 

September 16-18, 2022

Overview

The Reloveution Retreat is an intimate retreat experience for mid- to senior level career professionals, small business owners, and entrepreneurs who are feeling burnt out, lost in or confused by transition, or in need of a meaningful and strategic break from the "real world".

Through this experience and by purposefully stepping away from the daily grind with a powerful community of like-hearted humans, our participants can expect to reconnect with their purpose and passions to learn, refresh, heal, ground, set intentions, and reloveutionize their life and work. 

 

Rooted in the power of joy and human connection, we are here to create a safe and sturdy space for you to land, do deep soul work, and lean into the human being you were born to be (even if you don't know who that person quite is right now). 

Your time is valuable and precious, and we don't want you to waste a minute of it. Our programming is therefore specifically tailored to the needs, desires, and preferences of the people who register.

Looking to reset?

This space is for you.

Looking to center and find grounding?

This space is for you.

Looking to explore new possibilities for your life and/or work?

This space is for you.

Looking to be surrounded by inspirational energy and extraordinary humans?

This space is for you.

Just want to get away from your kids or spouse for a weekend? 

This space is DEFINITELY for you.

Generally our programming includes community gatherings, workshops, outdoor adventures, mindfulness activities, and ample free time for exploring and reflecting. But no matter what we DO, we seek to meet each of our incredible participants where they are (wherever and however they are) and to support their progress toward living a balanced, enriching, authentic, and soul-affirming life on their own terms.

If this sounds interesting and like an experience you could use in your life, book a connection call with us to learn more!

Location & Accommodations

The retreat will take place at Kings Manor, an historic private estate in Union Township, NJ (address disclosed after registering). This unique environment will offer an intimate and comfortable place for gathering, single and shared accomodations, a beautiful outdoor pool and poolhouse, and over thirteen bucolic acres for exploring and peaceful respite. We will be making full use of the grounds and surrounding areas with private classes, exclusive dining experiences, and as much outdoor time as the weather will allow

For those looking to minimize costs or get in touch with the earth, camping on the grounds is also permitted. If you'd like to bring an air mattress, you are also welcome to "indoor camp" in the pool house. 

The estate is conveniently located approximately 45-minutes from New York City and 1.5 hours from Philadelphia. Communter rail service to Union Township is available from Newark and NYC. Carpooling or shared transportation can be arranged for people who need it.

 

If you are traveling by plane, we recommend flying into Newark, JFK, Laguardia, Stewart, White Plains, or Philadelphia. We can help you get to us from there! If possible, please book flights that get you in by midday on Friday and that leave after 3pm on Sunday.

Timing & Commitment

Check-in begins at 4pm on Friday and we request that you arrive in time for dinner at 6pm. Our official program will begin at 7:30pm on Friday and run through 1pm on Sunday (with an optional wine tasting following closing). 

Ample free and down time will be included in the agenda to ensure that you get the respite and calm you are looking for.

 

We respectfully ask that you only sign up if you expect to be able to stay for and participate in the full experience. This is largely about cultivating community, which is hard if people are moving in and out or if they have to leave early.

Safety

Your and all participants' safety is very important to us. Therefore, the retreat will be capped at 20 people and all participants must consent to taking a rapid COVID test when they arrive (or showing proof of a negative test within 24-hours of arrival). 

Masks in indoor spaces will be optional. We encourage participants to wear a mask if it makes them feel more comfortable and safe, and to honor the preferences of others with whom we are in close proximity.

What Our Participants Say

We are regularly told that there is something special that happens in our workshops and retreats--a sense of connection and positive energy that is not typically experienced in the "real world". Our special sauce is equal parts magical serendipity and intentional facilitation rooted in love. 

If you're on the fence about participating, take it from the people who have been with us before:

"During the retreat, I had genuine space to connect with the most fundamental parts of myself without judgment from others. I loved how EVERYONE was welcome to the space, and everyone's opinion was valued. Marissa is an incredibly gifted leader and I immensely appreciate her clarity and the way she models vulnerability and living out her values."

 

***

"This experience reminded me to look within myself and continue to remember moving towards things that inspire me and motivate me. The exercises helped put things in perspective for me and know that I am not alone. I really appreciated learning about other people's stories and hearing their insights."

 

***

"I learned so much more about myself and others than I expected. I truly feel like it refreshed my outlook in a way I didn't even know I needed (well, I knew, but I didn't think it was possible to shift in the way it did so quickly)."

 

***

"As a socially anxious, introverted person who sometimes has a hard time maintaining engagement with others for long periods of time, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to connect and engage with the other participants in a very genuine way, while also feeling free to take space and be myself."

 

***

"This weekend, Marissa helped me come home to myself. I came to the retreat anxious and daunted by major decisions in front of me, feeling reactive and confused about my self-identity. I spent the weekend NOT compulsively writing sprawling to-do lists as I tend to do, but rather reconnecting with the most fundamental aspects of my being."

***

"This retreat allowed me to rejuvenate, connect with a diverse group of individuals with similar intentions, and learn more about myself. Taking this time to reflect on my interests, passions, and strengths instilled more confidence and spurred excitement in my next steps for both in my career and personal life."

***

"The Reloveution retreat was a phenomenal experience that exceeded my expectations. I left feeling refreshed, energized, and reflective. These experiences should be shared by all types of professionals to avoid burnout and facilitate deeper, more meaningful leadership."
