April 11 - April 14, 2019 // Joshua Tree, California   


Ready to escape the crazed pace of life and retreat to a place where you can hear yourself again?

You’re moving a million miles a minute, pushing to do, have, and be it all.  To the outside world, you have it all figured out, but there is a part of you that knows there is more to see, create, and experience. The challenge is that your life is full and fast so slowing down to think about the big picture and dream again seems impossible. And even if you did, where would you begin?

This spring we invite you to take a break...a REAL break...to embark on an expertly guided journey that will reconnect you with the woman you are beyond your title. She’s been waiting for you to turn inward so she can show you what’s next.


Slow down and everything you are chasing will come around and catch you.
— John De Paola


Escape to the vast desert of Joshua Tree National Park, known for its surreal landscape, yucca trees, unique rock formations, unforgettable sunsets, and powerful healing energy. Everything from your subtle intuition to deep relaxation is magnified by the geomagnetic vortexes in the area. In the spring, the desert comes to life with wildflowers. At night, millions of stars light up the sky, giving you the chance to catch a glimpse of the Milky Way for the first time.


Welcome to Hi Desert Ranch, a private micro-resort in the heart of Joshua Tree. Enjoy breathtaking views as you bask in the desert sun, float in the pool, reconnect with your inner child on the swings, curl up with your favorite book, or get cozy around the fire with your soul sisters.  The kitchen will be stocked with your favorite beverages, healthy snacks, and of course lots and lots of fine chocolate.  These images don't do the property justice, but will give you a taste of your peaceful weekend oasis.


Show up as you are and allow us to take you on a journey to slow down, deeply connect to your dreams, and rise to your full potential. This transformational coaching experience combines the power of an uplifting destination, all-inclusive accommodations, group coaching, private coaching, and unique self-connection and healing modalities that will allow you to:

REST & REFLECT: Experience the power in slowing down and being cared for. Take advantage of the down-time and inspiring space to relax, recharge, and turn inward to take stock of where you’ve been, what you’ve learned, and how you are feeling in your “now”.

RELEASE & RENEW: Update the way you see yourself, releasing the limiting beliefs, judgements, and stories that have held you back from showing up as the fully expressed version of you. Rediscover your access to your natural intuitive ability and reclaim your heartfelt (and maybe even controversial!) desires.

REIMAGINE & RISE: Give yourself permission to dream BIG as you craft an inspired vision for who you are becoming, how you want to live, and what you want to create. Learn to access the well of your own power and potential to fuel you as you step into new possibilities. Articulate a clear short-term plan of action to pull your dreams into reality!


We promise you’ll leave this retreat with:

  • Restored energy & vitality

  • A clear connection to your inner voice & access to the deep well of your personal power

  • An awakened sense of wonder and expanded capacity to dream big

  • Clarity on what’s next (in life and work) & a simple action plan to create it with unwavering dedication and confidence

  • A community of powerhouse women who are committed to your dreams as much as their own

Kristina Dopson

Coach & Stepping into Someday Lead Facilitator

Kristina knows from personal experience what it's like to get lost in the professional hustle. She worked in a fast-paced, innovation heavy, demanding corporate environment followed by a tech startup that didn't sleep. After 10 years, she found herself burnt out, exhausted, and not knowing who she was without her job. To the rest of the world, she was wildly successful, but on the inside, she was running on empty. Through hiring a coach herself, she was able to reconnect to her identity, energy and passion for leadership development and experiential learning. She's now on a mission to help others do the same by creating incredible experiences and spaces for self-exploration and personal/professional growth. Her insightful, supportive, and strategic coaching will help you get clear on what you want, create a focused plan to get you there, and get you moving toward your goals, faster.

Her path in and out of the food industry has taken many turns but at every step she has been driven by a passion for social activism, cultural curiosity and bringing people together around the dinner table.



I invested in this retreat to take some time to focus on myself. Even though I’ve been on other trips or nice getaways in the past, I really hadn’t taken time just to focus on myself. I hadn’t opened a journal in years. This was really my first experience doing the personal work that I have been pushing off and procrastinating on. Having this space to do the work in and not having distractions was a good opportunity for me. This was a beautiful setting with fun, like-minded women, great food, good wine, views, and hiking…all of that along with the personal development was like something I had dreamt up and always wanted.
— Diana, 2018 Retreat Attendee
This retreat has been amazing. It knew it was something I needed to do. I hadn’t taken a vacation in awhile, and I knew it would be good for me to get away. Being at this retreat allowed me to sit in my own skin and work through the things I’ve been putting off. It’s helped me gain clarity on what I’m looking for in my next steps in life. It has also been nice to connect with the other women who I don’t know...feel their energy, see their love, and learn and grow from them. The environment, teachings, and energy shifts have been incredible. That coupled with the beautiful retreat location has been transformative. It’s pushed me into my next stepping stone [in life].
