Is this for You?

Have you found yourself at a place where life is pretty good but there's something bigger and deeper within you that's desperately seeking to be made free? Are you in a season of overwhelm, or "good problems" to have, with a never ending to-do list?

Would you love to come to the mountains of Colorado and connect with other FRDs who are inspired by growth, adventure and humility? Are you courageous enough to create some space in order to find the real You?

If "yes" to any of that, we'd love to have you!

Join us for this four-day retreat in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado where you and your fellow FRDs will be building a road map back to your authentic life and uncovering some of the obstacles that may have led you astray.

"The deepest lessons must be lived; the wild self--the part that is in touch with instinct, needs, and purpose--the part that can feel shades of emotion, is like that. It must be awakened, listened for, tracked."
