Sheri, how are you going to deliver the six course modules?
Even though I had already led two very successful retreats to Costa Rica, I had no idea how to handle the legal and insurance details. Not only did this cause a lot of stress, but it ended up affecting my bottom line.
By taking the course, not only do I have access to all the “done-for-you” templates that I absolutely need, but to my surprise I also learned how to do marketing so I can fill my retreats with ideal clients.
I also have much more clarity about how to create beautiful, jaw-dropping retreat copy that will have women saying, “I have to do this!”Katana Abbott, CFP®, CSA™

So what’s the bottom line? The bottom line is the bottom line! I started working with Sheri about 10 years ago. To say the least, she’s amazing, and she REALLY knows what she’s talking about. When I planned my own retreats, I always lost money. Sheri has always created retreats for me that sell — and more importantly, THAT GENERATE A PROFIT!
I have only one suggestion: TAKE THIS COURSE. Or have her design your next event. Better yet, do both!. Sheri has a huge heart and explains things in an easy-to-understand way that makes sense!Susan Gregg
How do I know if this program is for ME??
This program IS for YOU if:
You’re planning your FIRST retreat…
You have a brand new business and you are in the process of building it – OR – you have a growing business…
You want to run local or in-country retreats…
This program is NOT for YOU if:
You’re an experienced retreat leader…
Your business is making a solid income yearly…
You want to run an international retreat
(if so you need the Retreat Blueprint Program)…
Sheri, I’ve got questions….
Q: Who exactly is this course for? Newbies?
This course is specifically for people who are looking to run their VERY FIRST retreat and do it in their own country. It’s perfect if you are just beginning your business and you have no or a small email list or following. It’s also perfect if you are in the process of growing your business.
If you have run a retreat before OR you are interested in running retreats outside of your own country – then the program you want to be investing in is The Retreat Blueprint Program. The reason is that the Retreat Blueprint has the legal forms, education, and assets YOU NEED to properly run a retreat out of your country.
Q: I don't plan on creating a retreat for at least year. Can't I wait until then?
Absolutely NOT! To fill a retreat properly and do all your planning I recommend giving yourself a year out to plan for your event – especially if you are new and are growing your list.
That way you can create a launch strategy that will guarantee that your first retreat will sell-out. In addition, you will give yourself enough time to work through the course and be able to learn and apply the concepts – plus have the time to do your research without feeling rushed.
Q: What if I miss one of the coaching class sessions or fall behind?
No problem! We know everyone has a busy schedule. Each of our coaching class sessions will be recorded and placed in our private site so you can review it at your leisure. Of course, you’ll get the most benefit from showing up live to get your questions answered, but the material will always be available for review afterward because the online modules have forever access. So once you join you can always go back into the course and watch the videos at any time.
PLUS you have TWO solid months of coaching in our amazing Facebook course group. Keep in mind that this is not a course group for folks just to meet each other – it’s where you post your homework and trip pages for us to comment on and help you with. This is one of the most powerful aspects of our course. I don’t know of any online course that offer our level of one-on-one interaction and we’re proud of that.
Q: It's just me. Can I plan a retreat all on my own?
Yes you can, I’ve done it for years! However – once you learn the system I do recommend you eventually get help with the areas you truly do not enjoy doing or that you feel are not your genius. We do address this issue in the course.
In fact, my travel company, Journeys of the Spirit® has a special program where we can take over the management of your retreat for you so you can focus on teaching if that makes you feel better. What is really important though is that YOU learn everything so that you fully understand the financials, legal issues, and marketing so that you can properly inform and teach your future staff.
Q: I want to know why this program is so special!
Sure there are a couple of courses out there that teach how to create & fill a workshop, but nothing focusing specifically on retreats that gives you all you need to plan, fill & profit from your retreat, or for that matter, all the forms & goodies you need to create your event (like your pricing worksheet, cancellation policy worksheet, and the pile of done-for-you forms that we include).
I wanted to have a system in place where I could ensure the success of my retreats and turn them into a seamless, profitable extension of my business.
Sheri’s course really hits the mark on all these points!
She’s a caring, knowledgeable, and experienced guide who will lead you through all the ins and outs of crafting your retreat, and she will share so much that will boost your business as a whole!
I highly recommend it for anyone struggling with creating and filling their retreats.Mariko Hirakawa, E-RYT, B.A.M.S.
I’m Sheri Rosenthal, and I’m a certified retreat junkie.
It all started back in 1998, when I finally admitted to myself that I had never been truly happy in my life. So I sold my very successful medical practice, and my beautiful home. I even closed the surgical residency program I had created and been directing (yes, that was a pretty big deal — and yes, the medical community thought I was NUTS).
Fortunately, during that time I received a copy of don Miguel Ruiz’s NY Times bestselling book (The Four Agreements®) and decided to go on one of his retreats to Mexico. That was my first experience with transformational retreats – and also where Meghan and I first met.
That journey literally changed my life. And as a result of that retreat, I became a student of don Miguel as well as working for him where I was privileged to design and organize all his journeys and retreats worldwide. It was an incredible opportunity that inspired me to give birth to both my own coaching practice as well as my travel agency, Journeys of the Spirit® which I created to host my own retreats.
Now of course don Miguel’s retreats always filled, after all he was a New York Times best-selling author. But I had made the assumption that my retreats would sell as easily as his when I first started coaching. Unfortunately that was NOT the case.
Some of my retreats sold, yet others didn’t and I lost thousands of dollars in non-refundable deposits along the way and made a LOT of mistakes. I obviously knew how to run a successful medical practice but NOT how to fill a retreat.
There was SO MUCH to learn in the online digital world. How do you find clients? How do you effectively advertise retreats online? How do you link all the technology together? How do you figure out where to go and what your pricing should be? What laws apply and what insurance did I need? Gosh, there were so many details.
I finally got to the point where I thought, “Maybe this just isn’t for me? Maybe I’m not techy enough? Maybe I don’t have enough time? Maybe I’m just not enough.”
But I was deeply passionate about retreats and never gave up and so I learned the hard way. I systematically broke down exactly what was worth investing time in and where to focus. I worked out how to put retreats and retreat-ready businesses together step-by-step and task-by-task. I figured out how to run retreats legally and to build them into the fabric of my business model so that I wasn’t always struggling to find more clients. And that’s when things started to change.
As a result, other retreat leaders started coming to me asking if I could help them plan and manage their retreats since they were having the same issues I’d been having! And since 2003, my travel company, Journeys of the Spirit, has probably run and managed more retreats than any travel business out there.
Now I live abroad at least 2 months a year – I can live and work anywhere in the world. Every year I send my parents on a trip someplace in the world. I’ve hired a team who helps me run my business which takes a load off my plate. And I’ve been able to support building a school through Pencils of Promise, which is a special dream of mine, giving back in a big way. The best part is that I get to do what I love every day.
Now we serve and impact a community of 70 thousand incredible entrepreneurs, like yourself. The reason I wanted to share all of this with you is because I want the same for you, I just don’t want you to go through it the way I did with all the trial and error, fatigue, financial stress, and overwhelm.
Now you’re here listening to me as an aspiring retreat leader and you know you’re meant to do retreats and do them successfully right? And you’re probably very clear on where you are and where you want to be, but you just don’t know the best way to get there.
Well, that’s why we created Retreats Made Easy. It makes the process of creating transformational local retreats in your own country so much simpler and easier when you know the proper keys to planning and filling your successful retreat.
What used to take me months when I was first planning my retreats now takes me only a few hours. I’ll be sharing with you step-by-step how to stop dreaming about travel and transformation and instead take action planning and filling your retreats – all while building your retreat-ready business. That way we avoid any overwhelm together.
We’ve had participants add tens of thousands of dollars to their income and take their clients on their first retreat to a place they’ve always dreamed of going. And others have doubled the number of people who have attended their retreats.
In our course, we’ll explain how you can avoid the most common mistakes retreat leaders make – and this applies to both newbie retreat leaders and highly experienced ones – and of course ALL the solutions to fixing these. I hope you join us!
You’ll learn our proven strategies to design, promote, sell out, and monetize your transformational retreats so you can:
- Design the local retreat or journey of your dreams.
- Create the perfect retreat page that sells.
- Have a specific system to price your retreats so you never lose money.
- Create a marketing plan to get your retreats filled + never have to cancel.
- Understand how to deal with the crazy issues that come up on retreats.
- Monetize your events so that you add $10k or even $50k extra to your bottom line!
