Reconnect Retreats

Have you been so busy trying to make a contribution to the world that you forget to pause until you are on the verge of burnout?

Your focus on doing great work gives you purpose, but you need to take occasional time-outs to reset and renew. When you let yourself crash and burn, your work suffers as much as your body, heart and mind.  Taking the time to "disconnect" from the world around you helps you "reconnect" with your self and your inner guidance to help make choices that are in line with your values. It helps you to become more proactive instead of reactive. 

Does this sound familiar?

  • You got into your work because you wanted to make a difference, but you notice there’s a lot of stuff about the work that feels meaningless -- endless paperwork, writing useless reports, etc.

  • You are constantly on information overload, and the state of the world has left you feeling disillusioned. 

  • You want to make the most powerful choices, but it's hard to know where to begin with all the noise out there. 

  • When you do set aside time to "disconnect," you find yourself either sneaking in work, vegging out on Netflix, or endlessly scrolling Facebook. 

  • When you try to plan for a retreat away, you get bogged down by too many choices and give up.

Relax, we've got you covered!

I've teamed up with retired Unitarian Universalist Minister, Linda Weaver Horton (AKA mom), to create done-for-you seasonal retreat guides. 

We've combined Linda's expertise in ritual, spiritual practices and expressive arts therapy with my big-picture and bullet point teaching approach to create an accessible transformational experience. We have taken the time to plan and prepare so you don't have to. 

In each seasonal Reconnect Retreat, you will find: 

  • Three done-for-you half-day modules that can be done separately or combined for a weekend retreat.

  • Clear guidelines for preparation, materials and everything you need to get started.

  • Simple, accessible and straightforward practices put together in a cohesive experience.

  • Creative exploration and contemplation exercises.

  • Considerations for bringing your retreat experience into your every day life.

  • A guide to using essential oils to enhance and deepen your healing experience.

  • A recommended reading list

  • And more!

The Reconnect Retreat guides are released in monthly 1/2 day modules that can combine into a seasonal weekend retreat.  You can access the guides, and other tools to harness the power of your intensity, by joining my Embracing Intensity Community for only $10 a month.  You can also find my Ignite Your Power course, previously only available through 1:1 coaching.


I'm pleased and honored to have been one of the advance readers for the retreat guides. They're very inspiring! Sure, I say I'm going "to take time for myself" and then flounder with what I'm going to do. The last time I tried this I went to the coast and ended up working most of the time - NOT the intention! These guides are the perfect antidote - Aurora & Linda simultaneously provide guidance and yet still give you room to explore on your own. This is a wonderful way to do a seasonal check in! 

I spent a delightful weekend in the suite at Quinn Mountain Retreat. I was there for an "unconference" and it was very hard to leave! The Holtzmans are delightful hosts. The suite was cozy and beautifully decorated, the bed was incredibly comfortable - did I mention I didn't want to leave? I look forward to going back soon! ~ Alesia Zorn, Calligrapher
