 The Reloveution Retreat 

 Reset. Realign. Rise. Reloveutionize. 

September 12 -15, 2024
Stony Point, NY

Overview

The Reloveution Retreat is an intimate retreat experience for humans who are in need of a meaningful and strategic break from the "real world" to rediscover themselves, recover and heal from burnout, and/or reconnect with their purpose and passions. Every year we gather in a powerful community of like-hearted humans to learn, refresh, heal, ground, set intentions, and reloveutionize our lives.

 

Rooted in the power of joy, authenticity, 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). 

Over 100 incredible human beings have participated in the Reloveution Retreat over the last five years and many people come back every year! You're invited to join the magic

All humans are welcome at the Reloveution Retreat and we prioritize finding a diverse group of like-hearted folks for this transformational experience.

 

You may need support and solidarity.

 

You may be feeling burnt-out or exhausted.

 

You may be feeling a tug to something new.

 

You may be looking for a reset or to explore possibilities for your life and/or work.

 

You may be hoping to expand your network.

You may not know what you need but know you need SOMETHING.

You may just want to get away from your [spouse/children/small town].

Whatever it is, whoever you are, you belong here and we’d be thrilled to be part of your journey.

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.

Is This For YOU?

"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."

Location & Accomodations

The retreat will take place at Stony Point Center in Stony Point, NY.  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. 

Single-bed and double-bed accommodations are available.

Stony Point is a 32-acre retreat facility located about 30 miles NW of NYC in the Hudson Valley. Public transportation is available and 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, or White Plains. 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.

Please note that we do not encourage commuting to and from the retreat. Part of the experience is sharing time and space and this is disrupted when people are moving in and out. 

"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."

Timing & Commitment

Folks are welcome to join us on Thursday night or Friday morning to participate in an optional pre-retreat Wellness Day.

Check-in for the standard retreat begins at 3pm 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. 

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.

"I had no expectations and all of them were surpassed. I came away with a better understanding of myself, my emotions, how I can regulate them, and how I can pour back into myself thoughtfully and tangibly to make myself a better person, friend, lover, co-worker, partner, family member, and community member."

Our Facilitation Philosophy

Reloveution is deeply committed to creating engaging, inclusive, collaborative, unique, and transformational spaces where we not only impart knowledge but also prioritize and harvest the collective wisdom of the room. We believe that learning is maximized and community is strengthened when human beings of all cognitive and physical abilities can safely absorb, reflect, discuss, apply, and practice skills in community. We also believe that people learn best when they are pushed into their “courage zone,” the space just beyond their comfort zone. Therefore, in every experience we facilitate, you can expect us to utilize independent, small group, and large group activities that provide space for participants to reflect, share their experiences and perspectives, ask questions, safely disagree (even with us!), try new things, and use their creativity.

"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."

The Investment

Registering for the Reloveution retreat gets you two nights of accommodations, six meals, endless coffee, tea, and snacks, all programming, a retreat t-shirt, and a life-changing experience. It's an investment of a lifetime!

We strive to make our programming as accessible as possible, and work hard to ensure that our rates are fair and nonexclusive to people of historically excluded identities. The Reloveution Retreat therefore has a "choose your own" price model, using no-questions-asked discount codes you can apply at checkout.

In deciding how much to pay, we encourage you to make generous, open-hearted choices that honestly honors your personal circumstances and any privileges you hold. We also encourage you to pursue support from your employer if it is appropriate and/or use professional development funds if they are available.

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, take it from Sabrina and Jacquelyn!

Fill out the enrollment form by August 15

**We do not want cost to be a barrier or deal breaker for anyone. If you are in need of sponsorship or scholarship, or a payment plan, please reach out to us at info@truereloveution.com** 

If you have any other questions, concerns, or ideas, email us!

Interested in Sponsoring the Reloveution Retreat?

We recognize that the ability to attend a retreat like ours is a privilege, and a barrier for many individuals from historically marginalized identities and those who work for nonprofit organizations (often those who need these experiences the most). We therefore offer our retreat on a sliding scale and rely on sponsorships to come out whole! 

 

We would be honored to have you and/or your company contribute to our Equalization Fund or to become an official sponsor. Your support will demonstrate your dedication to equity and will help us make this experience accessible to people who may not traditionally be able to attend.
