With our 2022 retreat theme, "The Awakening Within You," we're exploring surrendering the notion that our worth comes from what we produce.
Instead, stepping into the realization that we no longer have anything to prove. We are each innately more than ENOUGH.
For women in elevated leadership roles, this often includes attaching self-worth and the value they put into the world with constantly doing and achieving. Living in endless cycles of toxic busyness.
Instead, when you learn to love, honor and VALUE who you innately are, a level of unimaginable happiness is realized. The things you once gave your worry to become non-issues. You stop seeking and start allowing.
This SHIFT is at the heart of what it means to awaken to the TRUE YOU.
And it's at the very core of the soul purpose journey.
Are you ready?

This is an invitation-only event. If you'd like to be considered to attend, please email us at: Info@JessicaJoines.com. Upon approval, you will receive a password protected Eventbrite link that you can use to purchase your ticket and learn about other important information related to the event.
Does the price of the ticket include accommodations?
The price of the retreat ticket is $2,600 + $995 for 3 nights lodging (Total = $3,595). Upon receiving the Eventbrite invitation, you will be able to reserve your ticket and accommodations. The price includes two full days of programming, yoga, coaching, retreat activities and all food and beverage. Your lodging cost is for a single hotel room (in room incidentals are not included in the price).
Where is the retreat located and how do I book my lodging?
This year's retreat is being held at Serenbe Inn just outside of Atlanta, GA. Accommodations can only be booked through the password-protected Eventbrite link; not directly with the venue. The discounted rate of $995 for 3 nights in a single room includes hotel fees and local taxes. After securing your reservation, you will receive information about your room assignment approximately 2-3 weeks before the event begins. To explore Serenbe Inn, visit: serenbeinn.com. Please note, a credit card will be required upon check-in to the hotel for any incidentals.
Can I book accommodations for less or more than 3 nights stay?
To attend the retreat, you must book accommodations for 3 night stay, per our contract with the venue. If you would like to stay longer than the 3-nights please book directly through the hotel website.
What are the travel dates and other key logistics?
Event dates are Nov. 6-9. You should plan to arrive to Serenbe on Sunday, November 6th, no later than 4pm. Departure is anytime the morning of November 9th. While it might be tempting to leave the night prior, you will miss the closing ceremony, which lasts until approximately 9pm. And out of respect for your fellow attendees, we ask that you commit to attending the entire experience.
How do I get to Serenbe?
You are responsible for arranging your own travel arrangements to Serenbe. For those who don't live in Georgia, you will be flying into the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport. From there, Serenbe is approximately a 25-30 min taxi or car sharing service ride.
What are your Covid-19 policies?
We are asking attendees to submit proof of vaccination (with boosters up to date) 2 weeks prior to start of the conference. Additionally, each attendee is required to provide a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours before the start of the conference (in addition to being vaccinated). Depending upon national Covid rates at the time, daily rapid testing may also be conducted on site. Masking and safety measures will be determined as we get closer to the date; dependent upon nationwide Covid numbers.
What is your refund policy? How might Covid-19 impact this policy?
Please be sure you fully understand our refund policy before purchasing your ticket as we have a very limited refund policy. No refunds for any situation or circumstance whatsoever are available. Due to our contractual agreements with the venue and being a Solopreneur-led business, no full or partial refunds are offered for anyone, no matter the situation or circumstance, including unforeseen illness, family emergencies (including death) or unexpected travel disruptions. However, on a case-by-case basis, attendees may receive a 1:1 coaching package equal to the value of their retreat ticket price, if they are unable to attend the event. Finally, in the case that local or county laws or restrictions are put in place due to a Covid-19 outbreak, the event will be rescheduled.
The price seems higher compared to other conferences. Why is this?
This is not a conference, but a highly intimate, carefully curated retreat experience. You are paying for intimacy. And while we try to keep the costs as low as possible, because attendance is limited, our options are also limited vs. traditional conferences, where larger sponsor packages offset attendee ticket costs. When considering the cost, take into account the impact such a significant personal transformation experience will have on your life.
I'd like to be a speaker at the event. How can I be considered?
Because this is a peer-to-peer experience, the women we invite to attend are the same women we invite to speak. Therefore, all retreat attendees are considered. And those who book their tickets early are at the top of the consideration set. Please feel free to email us to discuss speaker topics.
Why is spiritual growth relevant to Executive Women?
When you hear the phrase spiritual growth, what we're really referring to is an understanding of the "life lessons" or "personal growth challenges" that are inherent and unique to you. As we all have personal lessons that continue to show up for us in ALL aspect of our lives, and block us; until we understand them beyond the surface level.
What is the retreat attire?
Wear the clothes that represent the most authentic you. We recommend casual comfort and leaving ALL the business attire at home. Make sure to bring a variety of ensembles for both indoor and outdoor activities. Clothes for yoga and meditation as well as walking shoes are a necessity. Other than that, bring layers and a couple of options per day. We'll email attendees more details as we get closer to the event and when all programming has been finalized.
How can I get my company to fund the cost?
The Women's Purpose Retreat is a one-of-a-kind experience for senior executive, C-Level women. In fact, there are very few opportunities for female executives to connect in a fashion that supports what they need to truly grow and evolve to the next level. While traditional conferences and networking have a purpose, they aren't always designed with the unique needs of women in mind. Therefore, supporting women in a time where equality still doesn't exist, in a way that allows them to hit new levels of growth, is something all companies can get behind. Just look at the testimonials from last year's retreat and you'll see, the power and impact of the Women's Purpose Retreat. Feel free to use this one-sheet to secure support and/or reach out to us for help positioning the cost to your company.
What are the opportunities available for corporate sponsors?
“The Women's Purpose Retreat is a life-changing experience. I have been every single year; will continue to attend; and be a member of the WPC! Because as someone who has attended hundreds of events and conferences throughout my career and prides herself on being a high performance, wholehearted leader. I don't say this lightly, but WPR is truly a rare and unique opportunity where senior leaders can come together in an intimate setting to do deeply vulnerable personal growth work. The relationships I've built as part of this community have been transformative to both my personal and professional life.”
- Laura Maness, CEO, Havas New York

- Lori Ann Franklin, COO, Rakuten
"When I was invited to the very first retreat in 2018, I was sitting at point zero of my journey. Blindly joining with a silent question: What is purpose? There are many reasons I have continued to come back time and time again, now as a Women's Purpose Community member as well. First, the exposure to amazing women has enabled me to walk alongside strong leaders in a similar place as me. Next, the guidance from Jessica is full of inspiration and always includes the truths you need to hear. Her practical advice and self-study tools have been life changing.The content, speakers and take-aways always leave me feeling energized and excited about dedicating myself to creating change in my life."
- Meredith Latham, Director, World 50

If you are looking to transform in ways beyond what you can imagine – then this is a must-attend event for you."

"Jessica curates a superb community of women in a beautiful venue and setting. With a unique ability to positively challenge one another through life-changing dialogue! I’ve never experienced anything quite like it and feel honored I have been able to be a part of this Retreat two times now."
- Ruth Cochran, Principal, Korn Ferry
"I have had the honor of attending the Women's Purpose Retreat since its inception. It has been and continues to be one of the most profound experiences of my life. The friendships I've made have changed me and supported my non-profit in ways I couldn't fathom. The work I am able to do on myself and support others in their journeys is at the heart of all I believe in. I'm grateful for what this community of women has meant to my life."
- Ashley Jones, Founder of Love Not Lost & Tedx Speaker
