Fourteen years ago I went through my own dark night of the soul as I tried to make the agonizing decision to end my marriage. My son was three. I was an empty shell of the woman I felt sure I was meant to be, and I’d spent the better part of a decade twisting myself into pretzels trying to make myself the person I thought my husband wanted me to be.
I couldn’t tell my friends and family how I felt because none of them had experienced the emotional abuse I was suffering, and what’s more, I hadn’t even identified what I was experiencing as abuse because no one was talking about this at that time.
There was no Instagram or TikTok, and life coaching was in its nascence.
You know there are people out there going through this – if you’re in my Facebook Group you’ve felt that sense of community – but there’s nothing quite like sitting around a fire sipping tea with a group of women who deeply understand what you’re going through.
And there’s nothing like sitting around that fire with one of the world’s top experts in the field of divorce and healing who can answer your questions, and give you warm comfort in your darkest hours.
If you resonate with anything you’ve read thus far, then I invite you to join me for an intimate, three-day retreat in the spiritual mecca and global metaphysical epicenter of Sedona Arizona.
If this is you, then I invite you to join me as I guide you and 11 other women in an intimate exploration of yourselves, your spirits, your deepest yearnings, and your marriages.
Airfare is not included, but transportation from the Flagstaff Pulliam Airport (FLG) may be provided by the retreat center (information TBD).
This retreat should not be viewed as a “girls’ trip” or “weekend getaway.” It will focus on deep, transformational work that will have the greatest impact on your personal development. BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN WE WON’T ALSO HAVE FUN!!! (I may or may not have bought myself a karaoke microphone for Christmas.)
Ancient Springs is located in the Page Springs green belt just outside of Sedona in Cornville, AZ. On 6 acres with an artesian spring, ponds, and paths to wander under tall cottonwood and sycamore trees, we welcome you to a peaceful place to be inspired in the verdant Verde Valley. We are caretakers of a very special location and look forward to sharing the land with you.
The Verde Valley has an abundance of opportunities for birdwatching, hiking, visiting historic sites, and numerous other outdoor activities. You may want to explore the area or you may want to stay at the Center the whole time you are here, depending on what type of Retreat or gathering you are planning. Ancient Springs will provide you with a comfortable and nurturing environment for whatever adventure awaits you…
The Ancient Springs Retreat Center is an alcohol-free facility and smoking is allowed only in the designated area.
The regular price of the retreat is $3,000 but you save $500 as a Grit & Grace member.
All rooms are double occupancy, with two twin beds in each room.

Check-in begins at 3pm, and we officially begin at 5 pm. Because of the intimate nature of this retreat, I ask that you do everything you can to book a flight that will get you here in time.
We’ll work until 10 am Sunday and check-out is at noon. Flights booked at noon or later should be fine.
Our retreat is booked at The Ancient Springs Retreat Center for the duration of our retreat only. There are plenty of hotels around Flagstaff and Sedona should you wish to enjoy the area for longer than our retreat is planned for.
