FIND YOUR NEW HEIGHT AND DIRECTION

A Visionary Mountain Self-Care Retreat Experience 

August 14-17, 2022
Blowing Rock, NC

What do you believe about where you are?

What do you believe about the direction you are headed?

High atop a mountain, you come to a crossroads.

You know what you have lived through to get here.


There have been challenges, and there have been wins.

Mountains symbolize the challenges we face in our daily lives.


But they can also suggest a new direction for us if we choose to believe that.

But they can also suggest a new direction for us if we choose to believe that.

The direction for your future can seem like it’s mountains away.

As you look into the distance, all you see are the obstacles: the challenging terrain, the deep valleys, and the treacherous roadways often blocked by rocks or boulders.

It’s evident in our daily lives that we have trouble bringing it into focus to see the future and the future version of ourselves that is living there.

It’s because we think and believe that our present is directing us to our future.


You’ve gotten to where you are because you’ve done all the things.

You’re accomplished and successful.

And as the days go by, you are thinking about what is next.

What could be the new direction for you?

Like a compass, our future has a direction.

A compass leads you when you feel lost, frustrated, or unsure.

It’s magnetic and it can pull you forward when you find you struggle with seeing what is ahead.

Most of all–it shines a light on what is available to you.

You do all the things.

And you know how to take care of yourself.

Activity. Daily self-care. Energy and fuel for your body and mind. Fun. Connection and community with others.

You desire a renewed focus on a blueprint and plan to move you in the direction of your future.

A direction that signals where to go from the mountain top.
To your new height.

A place that offers spaciousness, growth, energy, fun, fulfillment and connection.

The place where your future self lives.

Guess what?

It’s all waiting for you when you journey to the mountains to Find Your New Height this August in Blowing Rock!

This unique three-day experience in the mountains of North Carolina high atop the ‘High country’ will not just signal a new direction on your compass road but will lead you to your future self.

"I said yes to this experience and it changed it all for me.  As an entrepreneur in a service profession, I find that so much of my time is doing for others--down to reworking my schedule every week.  I find a lot of my weekends sucked up in planning mode.  Joining Alison in Turks and Caicos this past October was a game-changer.  I not only was able to detach from what was wearing me down but was able to plug into a community of like-minded people in a beautiful inspiring paradise and come away with a REAL plan and beliefs to go with it.  Make the investment in yourself and say YES!"

"As a Type 1 Diabetic, I know I need to ensure I get regular exercise and self-care on a daily basis. As a former full-time fitness instructor, I used to be able to do that. Working a demanding job and taking care of my family keeps me on the go and I struggle with keeping my fitness in check. I knew I needed a change and a reset--and this retreat was a game-changer for me. I am working on the changes Alison helped me navigate in Key West, and can already see a difference in my energy, and my insulin levels are better managed too. I feel like I can be a better role model and enjoy my life. So much love for this! Thank you! Can’t wait to attend this next year!"

"I am so glad I said YES to myself for this experience. As someone with a passion for health and healing, I am embracing making more changes for me, so I can be a role model for all of those I get the opportunity to help. As a retired teacher, I am ready for this new chapter of my life. Part of us creating the path forward for us means we be open to doing things differently-- and learning new ways to think ad do us daily. I am learning every day I can do things differently and that feels amazing!"

THIS COULD BE YOU!

Life changing.

“I had no idea what to expect coming on this retreat–a fitness retreat wasn’t on either of our radars.  We initially thought we just needed a ‘reset’ and ‘reboot’ on our physical plans, but what we got back was worth SO MUCH MORE.  Alison has a unique ability and talent to bring a group together for your benefit, and to draw out of you what you don’t think you need, but absolutely what you are looking for.  It exceeded all of our expectations and was life-changing."
