About This Event
Instead of living in anticipation of what the future brings, why not live now? Start now, in this moment, and live your future. Alps to Alaska is a program supported by a deep dive retreat, where we build strong connections to other participants and inspire each other to go BIG. We do this by showing up with stuff to work on, and bringing knowledge, skills, or stories to share. Magic happens in daily open space sessions, and continues throughout the day as we go adventuring together. We'll not only stretch our inner vision and belief of what's possible, but we'll explore the natural beauty around us. The work we do together on ourselves, and in support of each other doesn't stop at the retreat though. We continue online in a virtual community from around the world. Included in the retreat price is admission to an online community where you will have access to regular coaching, monthly check-ins, and accountability partners and mentors. You'll be able to launch your dreams into reality with a tribe of people who are ready and excited to see you succeed. Join the retreat to incubate your dreams, and then manifest them with the encouragement of a tribe of like-minded people. Retreat+Conference+Mastermind group all in one. Apply today to see if this is your year to join us! (And as this is the LAUNCH of the Alaska program, which will be a FULL WEEK in 2020, you'll be considered a Founder, which gives you a lifetime discount of 20% off all future events!)
It's wonderful how you created an environment where everything anyone wanted to do was the "right" thing. It was impossible not to feel like one was contributing, learning, and exercising good self care in the process, whether it meant spending more time journalling, eating another chunk of chocolate, or staying a little longer in an Open Space session. I think this is really the mark of a great coach & community builder! (Peter Kappus)
- Morning yoga, meditation, energy work - whatever the group brings and more
- Hike, bike, raft, or kayak - and probably check out some glaciers
- Art, journaling, music making, storytelling - who knows what the weather and talents of others will bring
- Foraging walk - reconnect with the bounty that nature offers, right at our feet
- Nutritious food and communal cooking will put the focus on connection
- Deep connection to inspiring people from all over the world continues after the retreat
- Reiki and coaching available
+ yoga and meditation
+ 2 hours of open space sessions to learn and inspire each other (this is where the magic happens)
+ planned activity to hike, raft, or forage (you chose to join or not)
+ story telling, music, individual reflection and intention setting for the next day
(as this is the land of the midnight sun, this could go on and double as an extra open session if desired!)
Venue HighlightsCozy log home in Wasilla with a view of the mountains, near a lake and only 20 minutes from Hatchers Pass. We have a large yard to spread out in for yoga or other physical activities, and a picnic table to work around when the sun comes out.
We'll have a fire pit to tell stories around and various cubby holes to escape for deep reflection when needed. If the weather is really not cooperating, there's an indoor fireplace and a large screen room. (Movies and popcorn anyone?)
AccommodationsIf you come as a couple, you'll have 4 beds to choose from (1 king and 3 queens), but if you want to share with a stranger, bunk beds are open! There are 4,5 bathrooms, all with showers, that we will share. Towels will be provided, plus a dryer is in house for extra rainy days or an accidental dip in the lake. Bring your own shampoo and other toiletries, but we'll make sure to have bug spray and sunscreen!

Menu/CuisineWe'll be co-creating many of the meals in collective online calls to connect before the event. Have a favorite dessert or a mouth-watering family recipe? Bring it and show us how to prepare it! Otherwise, dietary needs will be supported with an in-take call and our welcoming dinner will be catered. Our focus with each meal will be on healthy, local (as possible - this is Alaska!), and energy boosting food that we will all be responsible for making. Hate cooking? No worries - you can contribute something else. (Maybe cleaning up, or prepping the fire pit.)
