Ready to plan your FIRST local or in-country Retreat? Awesome!
Retreats Made Easy is the perfect program for any FIRST TIME retreat leader to get the confidence and tools to plan, price, and promote your sold-out Transformational Retreat!
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.
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.

FROM NO WEBSITE AND NO BUSINESS TO FIRST RETREAT!
We were just starting our company when we joined Retreats Made Easy – we had never created a website, had no retreat sales page, and no idea what to write about our retreat.
We held our first retreat 8 months later, charged $2197 per participant and were totally blown away by the breakthroughs. It wildly exceeded our expectations and can’t wait to now offer 4-5 retreats each year!
Thank you so much for your support!
How do I know if this program is for ME??
This program IS for YOU if:
You’re planning your FIRST retreat…

(if so you need the Retreat Blueprint Program)…
Want to Compare Our Programs?
Sheri, I’ve got questions….
Q: Who exactly is this course for? Newbies?
Q: I don't plan on creating a retreat for at least year. Can't I wait until then?
Q: Can I access all the modules as soon as I sign up?
To keep you on track, the course modules open weekly until by the sixth week – all are open. We prefer you don’t skip around the program, and once you begin you’ll understand why. If you have extraordinary circumstances that require access to information that is in a later module let us know and we will do our best to work with you on this.
Q: I want to know why this program is so special!
Simple. This is the most inclusive program for folks who are just starting out planning retreats and who need all the critical basics for creating a retreat while they are still building their business. Sure there are a couple of courses out there that teach how to create and fill a retreat but we don’t even consider them competition. Why? Well most folks who are teaching about retreats have only run a few of them or have done so for only a couple of years.
Would you rather be a newbie learning from another newbie OR – would you rather train with people who have been in the business of retreat management since 2003 (through my travel company, Journeys of the Spirit), and a team of coaches that have been running retreats for around 22 years?
At Wanderlust Entrepreneur, we’ve been training retreat leaders since 2014 and we have seen it all – literally! We’ve seen practically ever kind of retreat you can imagine, as well as every kind of problem you would want to avoid.
So it’s your choice whether you want to buy a cheap program or train from the best. I can promise you that you’ll make up the cost of our program in the money we’ll save you in costly mistakes and missing information from the other programs out there.
Q: What if I fall behind?
No problem! We know everyone has a busy schedule. Keep in mind that you have forever access to the online part of the program and THREE months of access to our private Facebook group where you will be posting your homework for us to review and give you feedback on.
If by some chance you do not complete the program and submit your homework in the FB group within the three month time person, there is an option to extend your time in the Facebook group for an additional three or six months for an extra charge. Our goal is to have you complete the program and actually launch and sell out your retreat and to do that – we do need your participation.
Q: It's just me. Can I plan a retreat all on my own?
PAID FOR PROGRAM IN 4 WEEKS, QUADRUPLED INCOME + $58,000 FROM RETREAT!
Before taking Retreats Made Easy, I had a small client list and didn’t know how to align my business with my retreats.
My business has experienced significant growth and not just on retreats – I’ve quadrupled my income in a year! And just 4 weeks after completing the program, I had already paid for the program fee with new clients.
This is a NO-BRAINER, DON’T WAIT, REGISTER NOW opportunity!
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!
