FINALLY! The blueprint for creating a retreat that actually sells
AND that teaches you how to avoid all the pitfalls that cause
most coaches, authors, and facilitators to lose money on their retreats.
By working with us you’re getting….
….the very BEST Retreat training you can buy! Whether you’re a total retreat newbie or have run over 30 retreats, you want state-of-the-art information AND you want it being taught by people who KNOW retreats.
Yup, there are plenty of folks teaching about retreats out there. But ask – how many international retreats have they designed and planned? Just because someone has RUN a few retreats – that does NOT make them an expert!
Through our travel company, Journeys of the Spirit, we have planned and managed over a thousand retreats – and we’ve educated thousands of retreat leaders through our Retreat Blueprint Programs.
We know what it takes to launch a successful and lucrative transformational retreat that’s deeply life-changing. We know the law. We know the problems that can arise on a retreat.
We’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly – and we’re here to share our expertise so that YOU don’t have to experience the mistakes and issues that we did when we started back in 2003.
OUR MISSION IS: For you to design, price, market, sell-out, and monetize a retreat that makes you a profit of at least $10K so that you can travel the world (if you want to!), transform lives in a huge way, give back and be of service, and have the income you desire from the expertise that you share. Are you in?
Here’s what you’ll learn…

- …and so much more!
Module Six – Legalities & Business Basics
You can design the greatest event but what about the LEGALITIES? Do you have the proper insurance to protect you? And are you using legal forms that cover you? I hope so! We’ll cover:
- Professional Liability Insurance (are you coaching without this? I hope not) & General Liability Insurance (when do you need this?).
- Trip Cancellation + Medical Insurance (you never know what’s going to happen…).
- What is Seller of Travel and how it applies to you (you may be operating illegally without realizing it)
- All the crucial legal forms for your trip (this is worth the entire cost of the program)! We’ll dive into legal forms and tell you the key phrases that need to be in your forms – since waivers are not appropriate.
- How having a corporate business structure, visas and income tax knowledge can help protect you!
- …and so much more!

I have invested over $100,000 in coaching programs and trainings over the years, and NOT ONE has been as effective, helpful, and thorough as The Retreat Blueprint Program.

After taking this course, I netted over $55,000 on my retreats in one month and since then, have made in excess of $150,000 on just retreats, making back my investment many times over.

9 Retreats IN 3 YEARS!
Before taking your Retreat Blueprint Program, I didn’t know how to budget properly and include a profit for myself.
I also didn’t know how to incorporate a powerful website to help market my retreats.
With those amazing tools, I’m running 3 retreats a year and have filled 9 retreats in total! Thank you so much for helping me with my marketing – not to mention all the other amazing support from you, Meghan and the entire team.Debbie Lamb Turner
Want to Compare Our Programs?
Sheri, I’ve got questions….
Q: I want to know why this program is so special!
Simple. There aren’t any programs out on the market right now like it –period. 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, legal forms, cancellation policy worksheet, and all your done-for-you forms).
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. That way you can create a launch strategy that will guarantee that your destination 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 live coaching calls?
No problem! We know everyone has a busy schedule. Each of our LIVE coaching calls 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.
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: Sheri, what if I fall behind?
No worries! You have FOREVER ACCESS to the online modules. So once you join you can always go back into the course, watch the videos at any time and get our help when you need it.
PLUS you have FOREVER ACCESS to the 26 LIVE coaching calls that run all year long, each and every year as well as our amazing Facebook mastermind group coaching. 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.
Also, we’re not going anywhere and you can take your time in learning the material. We’re not looking to stress anyone out here – after all this is about creating relaxing, transformational retreats with our expert guidance!
Q: Am I on my own here? Will you be able to help me with my retreat?
There are 26 LIVE coaching calls running all year-long each and every year where you can get in the “love seat” and we can work one-on-one with you on your retreat ideas! You’ll have FOREVER ACCESS to our expert support in the Facebook private group where you can ask questions and get help and ideas from each other – plus from me and my team. No one is leaving you to fend for yourself here. You also have the option to have private time with me or my team to discuss and plan your retreat if you need it – and that can be arranged at an additional cost.

I went from living paycheck to paycheck to increasing the price of my coaching packages, starting an online program and charging double what I used to so that I actually made money on my retreat!
As I have shifted my pricing, everything is changing.
I’m calling in a whole new level of clientele and I’m becoming more comfortable accepting that I deserve that much money.
So much good is happening – and there’s more to come. Thank you so much for this incredible program and all your personalized support!Heather Feather
I’m Sheri Rosenthal, and I’ve been a serial entrepreneur and world traveler my entire adult life.
So back in 1999 I was really struggling in my life. I had gone through two divorces and was working hard each stress-filled day as a podiatrist (a foot doctor) and surgical residency program director.
I always loved the idea of having my freedom and being able to travel more than my 3 weeks of vacation time every year. But I had no idea how to make that a reality so I buried my dreams and kept my head down.
Finally, depressed, unhappy, and hating my life and business, I decided to sell my practice and everything I owned – including my boyfriend – at the time. (Well, I really didn’t sell my boyfriend, but I would have liked to if I could.) My family and the medical community were horrified at my decision.
Yet in my heart of hearts I knew I had a greater purpose and was meant for so much more than living a mediocre life. It was a drastic leap of faith – and yes, it was very scary.
During this time, I received the New York Times bestseller The Four Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz. I saw that he had an upcoming retreat to the sacred pyramids of Teotihuacan Mexico during the exact time I normally took my vacation.
I had never been on a retreat in my life – but I took a chance and went anyway despite my doubts. The retreat ended up being a pivotal moment where the trajectory of my entire life changed direction. It was SO much more effective than therapy!
While in Mexico, I met incredible friends from around the world, opened my heart and mind, and experienced a truly magical part of Mexico – all in just 6 days! Plus my point of view, perspective, attitude, direction, level of self-awareness, confidence, self-love all shifted!
Well, my practice finally sold, I moved to California, started studying with don Miguel, and serendipitously began running his retreats, workshops and his overall business.
Now I just want to digress from my story for a moment to point out something extremely critical to you about the power of retreats. I want you to understand that from that one initial retreat don Miguel gained a student for 8 years who attended every workshop, program, and retreat that he created.
Think about that for a second from a business perspective – I easily spent around $75,000 on follow up programs with him over the following 8 years and I would do that again in a skinny minute for the changes it made in my life!
Now multiply that by all the other participants on that retreat who continued to work with him too – and there were around 50 on that trip, so that probably added an additional million dollars or more to his bottom line over the following years! (And we want the same for you!)
Fast forward to 2014… By this time, I had been running my own retreats and helping hundreds of heart-centered facilitators run their amazing retreats since 2003 through the boutique travel agency that I created, Journeys of the Spirit.
I was totally smitten with retreats and the effect they had on the participants – not to mention that YOU as the retreat leader also grow in your own self-confidence in what you share with the world and your ability to stand in your power. Gosh I get so emotional about this.
Then it finally dawned on me that I could help others much more effectively if I created a program to help my retreat leaders end their troubles with filling their retreats AND start making the kind of money they should be making.
And that’s how and why Wanderlust Entrepreneur and the Retreat Blueprint Program were born.
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 destination 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.
- Have the proper legal forms to protect you + your company.
- Understand how to deal with the crazy issues that come up on retreats.
- Monetize your events so that you add 10k, 50k or even 100k extra to your bottom line!
