about NINE Retreat
"I attended NINE knowing that it was going to have an impact... I did not realize how one week in the beautiful woods would affect the way I think of and perceive my body, communication, past events and current anxieties. I returned home with a greater sense of self-awareness and confidence in who I am as a woman, wife, daughter, sister, friend. I met and made so many friendships that will endure, this event has forever bonded us in a way none other has before. NINE is a place to get REAL - reality can, at times, be difficult but it can also be fun and incredibly rewarding in so many ways. This week is best summed up as a week spent among strangers (who become sisters) to self-reflect, empathize, laugh, learn, encourage, and JUST BE PRESENT."
“Captivating. Surprising. Awe-inspiring. Significant. Extraordinary.”
“I’m eternally grateful for the transformative experience and for the sisters I’ve never had. I came to NINE with intentions of placing myself outside of my comfort zone and to better learn about myself. I came home with so much more than just that. NINE gave me the tools to transform my belief system and let go of what no longer serves me. I became vigilant of the energy in and around me. NINE is the catalyst of my healing process and bringing my voice to light. NINE is a safe place for women to heal, restore and grow personally and creatively alongside a sisterhood of empathetic, loving, supportive, inspiring, badass women.”
“NINE shook me to my core. It made me rethink how I was feeling, living, and reacting to life.”
“I am not going to lie, when I first heard of the cost of going to NINE, my immediate answer was “I can’t afford that!” I like nice things as much as the next person, but I have NEVER in my adult life spent a large chunk of money on myself—for my kids, sure; for my husband, yup; but for me: it was never a yes. After being encouraged a bit, I decided to take the leap and attend after considering what investing in myself was really worth. Sure, it costs money; it was also time away from my family, time off of work. But I was able to acknowledge that I was running a one-woman show and I was running it on caffeine and dumb luck alone. I had a sick husband, 2 babies that needed me, and a caseload of clients. No one was getting a full person, but a shell of a human who was desperately hanging on by a string. NINE taught me the importance of self care, to outsource, have better boundaries, to let people in, to ask for help. I’ve stopped coming from a place of scarcity and opened my eyes to tools around me and, more importantly, within me to help me flourish, thereby helping my business grow and my family thrive. Since attending NINE, I have doubled my monthly income, gone from a one woman show to hiring 3 employees and having more confidence than I’ve ever really had in my abilities in 41 years of life. So, is NINE worth the investment? I’d say there is no price I would pay for increasing my tribe, my happiness, my self love. Now I prioritize this retreat YEARLY and my husband and children support me in going because they’ve seen the transformation. They, too, benefit from having a more centered mom and wife.”

"I knew NINE would be special before I went. I could feel it in my bones when I first signed up that it was what I needed in my life. But I had NO idea what I was in for. I continue to describe this as "the best week of my life" because it's hard to put in to words what a unique week it was. NINE opened me up to learn to forgive and love myself again. It introduced me to some of the most fearless and authentically beautiful women who have changed me for the better. To say NINE was life-changing, would be accurate-but I still feel like I am reaching to find the most appropriate word. Captivating. Surprising. Awe-inspiring. Significant. Extraordinary. Thank you to everyone I now get the honor to call my sisters, you hold a sincerely special place in my heart and always will."
“NINE is easily the best investment I will have ever made for myself and my career.”
“NINE shook me to my core. It made me rethink how I was feeling, living, and reacting to life. I was able to be vulnerable with complete strangers in a way that I am not even sure I have had with my best friends. The women I shared this experience with are now the community that I was yearning for. I truly feel if you have an opened mind going into NINE, your experience will be transformative.”
