Imagine coming together with your female business peers in a beautiful retreat setting, in the heart of a canyon, next to the healing energy of the Pacific Ocean. As you listen to the quiet nestling of the trees flocked by an ocean breeze....you relax. Finally free from any distractions or city noise you take a moment to go within.

For as you elevate your personal and professional growth, you are better able to empower your teams, company and the world.
At the end of each day, we'll commune under the stars, sharing delicious nourishing food, and honest, open conversation.

What to Expect at the Retreat
An incredible two-day experience designed to elevate executive women through a transformative personal and professional development experience.
Prepare to Be Transformed.
The Women's Purpose Retreat attracts women from across the Country, in the highest of positions, who are committed to their personal growth. In a rare and intimate, peer-to-peer setting, they support one another through deep self discovery and exploration – an expansive personal and professional growth experience. They are pushed beyond their comfort level to enhance the expression of their purpose in the world and at their companies.
Inspirational speakers serve to motivate and inspire, while expert coaches help them expand their self-awareness and wellbeing to better thrive in all they do. By taking this journey with other like-minded women in a casual, intimate setting, bonds and relationships are created that stand the test of time.
Topics covered at the retreat include: female leadership and empowerment, spiritual and personal growth, wellbeing, mindfulness, and self-awareness coaching.
Unlike other conferences and retreats, speakers are selected from the group of registered attendees. This keeps the experience intimate and personal, while allowing everyone to be the "teacher and student," they innately are.

Our retreat theme, "Your Infinite Potential," is about stepping into the highest, expanded possibility for your life. For the only thing limiting you, on any level, is the belief that you are limited. At this year's retreat, we smash that notion and claim our inherent truth and power, as female executives, leaders, visionaries, mothers, wives and sisters. We're going to expand our thinking and beliefs to remove the self-imposed restrictions that are keeping us blocked. Including transcending and rising above the fears, worries and doubts that only serve to keep us small. For as when we step into the knowing — that we are truly limitless — do we transform ourselves and those around us. From those we lead to the companies we serve; to our families, friends and communities.
Why this, Why now?
It’s a transformational time for us
We all want to make the world better
Women are at the forefront of change
We are leading the charge through alignment to purpose
We want to empower ourselves and other women
Supporting one another is key
“The change that will save the world is a personal one”
Jessica Joines is a former Global CMO turned bestselling author, coach and inspirational speaker. She is best known for completely reinventing her life shortly after turning 40; when the one she had built was no longer serving her. She now helps women master the twelve spiritual lessons that have been so essential to her own journey, as featured in her book, Dare to Believe. Through this work, she empowers women to thrive in all they do, living and leading from their highest potential and truth.
Jessica's own career path and personal story have been marked by a long commitment to leading with purpose. While she excelled in her corporate marketing career over the last two decades — most recently as the Global CMO at Rakuten — she felt something was missing. So she bravely stepped into the unknown and changed, well…everything. Eventually finding fulfillment through an alignment with her soul purpose.
Now, as a spiritual coach for business leaders, Jessica helps her clients leverage consciousness and self-awareness to deepen their own leadership ability. Inherent to this, she teaches and leads workshops on how to not engage with fear as truth, but as our most profound teacher.
Jessica is a contributing author to Thrive Global. Her bestselling book, Dare to Believe: 12 Lessons for Living Your Soul Purpose, topped charts on Amazon for two months and has been applauded by authors and teachers alike. Jessica is excited to announce the launch of her new TV show, Soul Purpose Sessions, launching on the United Intentions network in August 2019. You can learn more about Jessica's work here.

Does the price of the ticket include accommodations?
The price of the retreat ticket is $2,985. While we try to keep the costs as low as possible, because attendance is limited to 40 women, our options are somewhat limited vs. traditional conferences. The price does includes two full days of programming, yoga, coaching, retreat activities and all food and beverage.
Where is the retreat located and how do I book accommodations?
This year's retreat is being held at the Ranch at Laguna Beach Hotel. Accommodations are to be booked directly with the event venue. Upon purchasing your event ticket, you will receive a separate email with instructions on how to secure your room at the Ranch at Laguna Beach for the discounted price of $270/night.
What are the travel dates and other key logistics?
Event dates are Nov. 3-6. You should plan to arrive to the resort on Sunday, November 3rd, no later than 4pm. Departure is anytime the morning of November 6th. While it might be tempting to leave the night prior, you will miss the closing ceremony, which lasts until approximately 9pm.

There are four different airports you can fly into: 1) John Wayne Airport – Orange County 18 miles / 25 minutes, 2) Long Beach Airport 38 miles / 50 minutes, 3) Los Angeles International 52 miles / 90 minutes, and 4) San Diego International 65 miles / 75 minutes

Yes, all tickets are refundable up to 90 days prior to the event. Due to our contractual agreements with the venue, refund cut-off is August 6, 2019. After this, no refunds are possible in any case, including unforeseen circumstances and emergencies.
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 Leadership?
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 your leadership journey. This is a more expanded way to think about your growth than what a skills-based approach might reveal. 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 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. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you can use our help with how to position your participation at the retreat.
The Ticket Price Seems High, Why Is This?
When you bring together a small group of women for a fantastic experience, that is't about "selling," but community-based growth; the cost is naturally higher than other, larger events, that are able to draw upon big sponsorship dollars. We've done our absolute best to minimize the ticket price in every possible way we can, including offering very customized, integrated sponsor experiences.
