Personal Retreats

Women’s personalized retreats with life-changing possibilities!

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

Are you yearning for a more vibrant life?

Would you like to learn ways to quiet your mind
and experience more peace and serenity?

Would you love to experience a personal retreat – made just for you?
Or for you and a friend?  Or a group of friends?

Then we would love to help you create it!

I really enjoyed my personal retreat experience.
It was exactly what I needed
to help me get stronger
and more clarity on what I want,
where I’m going and,
hopefully, where I will land one day.  Thank you!

Our time together was really inspiring!

We’ll work closely with you to create a retreat experience with the perfect mix of body, mind and spirit experiences.  Your retreat can be:

~ Held live anywhere you’d like it to be.  You can come to Sedona (often listed as one of the most beautiful places in the world).  Or we can come to a location near your home.  OR (because we love to travel) we’re open to traveling anywhere in the world to offer the retreat of your dreams!

~ Held virtually through Zoom, where we can offer a full retreat experience from the comfort of your own home . . . in your jammies, cozy and comfortable.

~ For any number of women:  Just you, for you and a friend or for a group of friends.

~ For any length of time:  Two hours, two days or two weeks.   Or anything in between or beyond. 


We will work closely with you to design
the personal retreat of your dreams!

to your needs when talking with you before your retreat:  What would you like included in your retreat?  What are you most needing? How can we be most helpful?  What would you like to leave with?

WE WILL SUGGEST a potpourri of retreat experiences and let you choose which is best for you or your group? 

IF YOUR RETREAT IS LIVE, we will set up experiences that will enhance your retreat experience: meditations, spa treatments, healing modalities, outdoor  adventures, spiritual experiences . . . really anything you think would be helpful/delightful/fun.

IF YOUR RETREAT IS VIRTUAL, we would love to create the perfect experience for you.  Similar to our live personal retreats ~ using many of the same materials, creating a safe space for exploring and sharing, and giving you the insights, tools and skills needed to live a more full and meaningful life ~ while nestled in the comfort of your own home, then we would love to make that happen for you!

YOU WILL LEAVE YOUR RETREAT with tools that will support you on your continued journey . . . refreshed, revitalized, joyful and looking forward to a more vibrant, authentic and meaningful life.


Give yourself the gift of daring to dream
of a new way of being!


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!

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 Ely 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.
