Powerful Resources from 10 Years of Retreat-Leading Experience

About Darla

There are two things that have made a difference for me more than anything else on my journey to right here.

  1. Alignment. Aligning with my spiritual Truth has created a priceless internal freedom.
  2. Retreats. Connection heals and healing frees. To risk being truly seen, in a retreat community, creates permanent transformation.

Kurt Wright said, “We can only trust that part of ourselves that we have revealed to another person and had validated instead of violated.” This simple statement demonstrates why small, safe-space, truth-based retreats are such powerful tools for empowerment. Once we experience ourselves in a new way, we can’t un-know who we now are. And live retreats create experiences in a way no self-help book (or virtual program, or information-packed big event) ever could.

If you are someone who creates a safe space of non-judgement in which people can share their Truth (or people just tend to tell you stuff), or if you love to dig into the root cause of an issue to shift it at its core, you might a transformational entrepreneur and a powerful retreat leader.
