What past attendees said...
This retreat came at the perfect time for me. I recently received some disappointing news and was filled with doubt and lowered self-esteem. Participating in the weekend renewed my spirit and provided me with strategies and steps to move beyond the fear, self-doubt, and feeling like an imposture. Each activity was curated to help create exponential growth. The retreat also provided the ability to have international networking opportunities that is unique. I could not meet anyone at the retreat that was not a "big deal". I left the retreat empowered, invigorated, and motivated to attend the next retreat. It would be great to meet you at the next retreat because if you are reading this you are a "big deal" too.

During the retreat, I gained clarity and an appreciation for the season I'm in. I've always been apprehensive about this season but now that I understand that there is value for every season, I am better prepared to face it. Ever since the retreat, I have stopped sweating the small stuff. I am more aware of others and in a position to serve them better. I no longer feel stuck but free to enjoy what life has in store for me. Thank you, Ekene for curating an amazing experience for us. Thank you for helping us see our future selves clearly. Thank you for putting together a community of loving and kind women. I didn't realize my entire being needed this.

The panel of leaders on Friday morning; the mastermind on Thursday; the dancing session; the pool experience; Sunday morning and the forest bathing.
In each of those sessions; there were lessons; grounded and built into the experiences. There were opportunities to reflect and start making commitments. That made room for breakthroughs

I enjoyed meeting amazing women from different backgrounds - all working towards similar goals, elevating to the best versions of themselves. The entire retreat experience was awesome - the atmosphere, location, speaker panels, treats, swag, camaraderie, the walk through the woods, which held so many lessons - were all so impactful.
I had been working on a number of ideas to put out into the world, but I believe I have been hiding behind doing more analysis, research, etc, which to be honest, has been me operating on some level of fear. I had to come out from behind the fear, and commit to taking a next step! One of the ladies came up to me immediately after the session, and said "I am here for you" and she meant it. She followed up with a Zoom appointment for 2 hrs on Monday to talk through action items. This community of women led by Ekene, who by the way is truly and powerfully walking in her calling, is operating on a whole other level. They are journeying in and towards their purpose, prayerful, they make space for others, they are winning and want to see others win. Truly a blessed experience.

My biggest take away was Restoration & Reconnection - The resort was beautiful and I loved that it was adults only. I found Ekene's teachings very valuable. Loved the millionaire mastermind. Also valued the fact that intentional downtime was scheduled in which gave me time to recharge as needed. I also appreciate the intricate attention to detail at every event - all the specific intentional touches that Ekene pulled together made me feel really cherished and cared for. Most of all, I loved meeting my sisters in flesh and connecting on another level😍
