Here's what women have to say...


"I haven’t laughed, lived or learned so much about myself and my new-found friends in such a short amount of time, it was worth every mile and every penny (and euro) it took to reach that place both physically and mentally.

I now have a new milestone around which to define myself...who I was before my THRIVE Retreat versus who I've become since.


I can’t wait until the next one!"

February 28 - March 1, 2020

What a beautiful weekend - we started as strangers and left as a connected, supportive, cohesive group!  


"I came expecting to learn skills to improve my life through 'positive thought', I did not expect what unfolded in just 24 hours - an explosion of compassion, empathy, love, kindness, generosity, curiosity and so much more."

Il Baglio della Sorgente

For seven peaceful nights you will call Il Baglio della Sorgente your home. Located in the Ragusan countryside, not far from the beach, Il Baglio is a lovingly converted winery and stables with a private swimming pool and personal chef. 

Savor your surroundings as we explore the Sicilian towns of Ragusa, Modica and Noto.  Replenish your body with onsite yoga and learn techniques backed by science, to create more happiness in your life, improve your relationships, and open yourself to opportunities to live into your best self. 

THRIVE Retreats are the perfect mix of relaxation, exploration, and a personal growth program.

THRIVE Retreats are for you if...

  • You like learning about yourself and ways to make your life the best it can be. An integral part of the retreat is exploring your strengths, challenging your limiting beliefs, and learning techniques to raise your positive emotions.

  • You like connecting with small groups of women. THRIVE Retreats are intimate by design. Group size is between 8-12 women.

  • You like traveling and exploring new areas. Getting outside of your typical environment, and experiencing new ways of doing things, help to shift your mindset and create the change you want in your life.

THRIVE Retreats are NOT for you if...

  • You are not interesting in learning about ways to think differently or exploring different ways of doing things.

  • You prefer traveling in large groups (think tour bus).

  • Traveling makes you cranky and you don't like stepping outside of your comfort zone.
