Personal Retreats & Girlfriend Getaways

Personalized retreats with life-changing possibilities

Are you yearning to get away . . . to somewhere inspiring?

Would you love to step away from life’s distractions and nestle into a serene space of reflection and renewal?

Are you interested in gathering your closest friends for a delightful experience, part-time playful and part-time life-enhancing?

Or would you love to create a personal retreat, just for you,

and with the help of a professional facilitator, find inspiration
and the skills to move back into your old life
in a new, more meaningful way?

My best friend and I enjoyed an insightful, relaxing
3-day private retreat with Karen Ely. I highly recommend
it for anyone looking to get their lives back on track!  I
was so moved by my experience that I am planning
to take Karen’s
Facilitator Training Program so that
I can offer the same for other women!

~ Jeanne, CT


I am still feeling the glow from my private retreat with Karen Ely.
It was a peaceful, thoughtful, introspective time and I learned the
importance of sitting quietly with myself–something I realized I was
desperately lacking. I’m learning to listen to my heart and to my own
true voice, something I never really knew how to do.I will never be able
to thank Karen enough for the gift she has given me.
~ Tammy, PA


My personal retreat with Karen helped prepare me to face
what I and my heart
needed to. . . with courage and resolve
and confidence.  In the whole scheme
of life the retreat was
one of those wonderful experiences
I will always remember.
~ Nancy, IA
