Fearless Spirit Retreat
May 4-7, 2023
Santa Rosa Beach, FL
The Fearless Spirit Retreat offers a deeply awakening, soul-nourishing retreat for women to restore, reclaim and remember the parts of themselves that have been lost.
Do you ever feel like you’re just going through the motions of life? Like you’re not really living, you’re just existing?
Women do such a great job at taking care of others that they forget about themselves. They feel stretched thin and they get burnt out. It feels like their soul is dying.
→ studies show that 50% of women in the world have given up their dreams and are unsatisfied with their lives.
That’s half the women on the planet! This can result in feeling resentful, anxious, and even depressed. That’s why it’s so important to take time for yourself to recharge and rekindle your inner spark.
There’s no better place to reconnect with the woman you are than at the Fearless Spirit Retreat.
This is for you if you want to:
- Restore balance in your life
- Be inspired and motivated to pursue new passions
- Integrate all parts of yourself into your life (mind, body, spirit)
- Feel fulfilled and happy
- Have better relationships
- Gain more self-confidence to go after what you want
- Embody the powerful, sexy, smart, silly, creative woman that you know you are inside!
The Fearless Spirit Retreat is designed specifically for women who want to reconnect with all parts of themselves and remember what it’s like to feel whole so they can approach their life with confidence and trust.
You’ll leave feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to take on whatever comes your way. You deserve this transformative experience!
“The best thing I ever did for my family was focus on my own fulfillment. Not only was I happier, but my marriage improved and I was more present for my kids. Some people think that’s selfish, but I think it’s crazy to leave my own well-being off the table. I’m just as important as they are!” – Lulu
What We’ll Do
You’re an amazing, complex woman. It’s important to nurture all parts of yourself or you’ll always feel like something is missing.
The retreat takes a holistic approach by honoring your mind, body, and spirit. This is done through many modalities of self-expression, such as meditation, journaling, art, and more.
Sometimes you need someone else to push & guide you into exploring new territory so you can discover new parts of yourself.
It’s important to remember that there’s no one right way to do this. What matters is that you’re taking the time to explore different ways to connect with yourself. When you do this, you can feel more authentic by finding what works for you.
In our time together, we’ll fearlessly dive into:
♦ Art Projects ♦
Whether you consider yourself creative or not, everyone can benefit from expressing themselves through art. We’ll provide all the supplies you need as well as instructions. Just let yourself go and see what happens!
♦ Workshops ♦
Our workshops will cover topics like self-care, setting boundaries, creating rituals, goal setting, and more. You’ll come away from these workshops with tools that you can use in your everyday life to make it more fulfilling and satisfying.
♦ Guided Meditations ♦
We’ll help you slow down and connect with your innermost thoughts and feelings. This is a great way to get in touch with what’s really going on in your life and figure out what’s important to you.
♦ Movement ♦
We’ll explore dancing and movement as a way of connecting with our bodies and our divine selves. This can be a liberating experience that helps you to connect with your body’s natural energy and rhythm. It’s an opportunity to let go of your inhibitions and to allow yourself to be free.
♦ Writing ♦
One of the most powerful things you can do for yourself is to give voice to your thoughts and feelings. We’ll explore how writing and journaling can be used as containers for deep introspection and discovery. This is an opportunity to find your own unique voice and learn how to share it with the world.
♦ Sacred Circle ♦
Women have always been powerful healers, nurturers, and teachers. But sometimes we need a reminder of our own strength. When you answer the call to join us in the sacred circle, you not only allow yourself to be healed and nurtured, but you also give other women permission to do the same.
♦ Free Time ♦
We know that not everyone wants to be on the go all the time. That’s why we also offer free time each day for you to relax however you wish. Maybe you want to read a book by the ocean or go for a hike on the trails. It’s up to you!
The beauty of the Fearless Spirit Retreat is that you can come back and it will never be the same! Retreat themes change each time based on the group that forms or the topic that is being called to life.
Past topics have included:
- Living as your whole self – mind, body & spirit
- Working with the 4 earth elements
- Embracing your present purpose
- Finding the silver linings in past experiences
- Uncovering your strengths & gifts
- Self-Love & Trust
Check out some of the projects we’ve made over the years!
Workshops at each retreat vary, but the goal is clear – to awaken and embody new ways to reclaim yourself so you can live a fun, fearless, and fulfilled life!
Meet Your Guide
Hi! I’m Lulu – a painter, dancer, and Life Igniter. I know the struggle of feeling guilty about having time for yourself while taking care of others.
As a mom of 4, a wife, and a business owner, I felt pulled to be present for everyone else but left no time for myself. I was more concerned about hurting other people’s feelings than I was with creating boundaries for my own self-care.
I felt trapped in a life of my choosing, and that made me feel horrible. I had lost what it meant to be me, and my relationships began to suffer.
I loved my family, but something had to change. I had to be a better role model for my children. I didn’t want them to sacrifice their happiness for others, because I knew how lost that made me feel. I wanted them to value themselves and know their worth, and I had to teach it through example.
I started paying attention to the things I was curious about learning and began slowly. I stopped telling myself that I wasn’t a creative person and started trying.
I reconnected with past hobbies and discovered new ones. With each step I took, I learned more about who I was and what excited me. I never imagined I’d find new passions, and that those passions would lead me to host retreats!
The Fearless Spirit Retreat was created through my own journey. It’s a container to teach what helped me gain more self-confidence, live with purpose & intention, prioritize my own delight, and trust in the universe that it’s all working out.
I want the same for you! Why?
Because you deserve happiness and fulfillment! You have a voice that needs to be heard and gifts that can heal the world. There’s no one else like you, which is why you’re here. You’re needed and I want to help you succeed!

Q: What do I need to bring?
~ We want you to feel completely taken care of, which is why we are providing all the materials you’ll need for the workshops. If you have your own favorite art materials, feel free to bring them along. We suggest dressing comfortably, and wearing clothes you won’t mind getting dirty (just in case). Also, please bring any personal toiletries.
Q: What if I have special dietary preferences or restrictions?
~ We’ll make every effort to accommodate your dietary needs. Please let us know at least 4 weeks prior to the retreat what you require. A grocery store is located nearby if you need to supplement what we offer.
Q: What if I can’t make it to the retreat and need to cancel?

Q: Will there be a workshop-only option for people who live locally?

~ We encourage all participants to take precautions in the 2 weeks leading up to the retreat and during travel to the retreat to ensure their health. If a participant is sick at the time of the retreat, we expect her to contact Lulu to discuss options for rebooking.
Need More Info?
I love art, writing, learning new techniques, and having life’s mundane churned up to create a fresh perspective, all alongside other women who want to do the same. This is a tall order and yet Lulu’s retreat fulfilled these desires and more.
I enjoyed a weekend in a beautiful, spacious home with tasty and nourishing meals provided. Through the meditation, intuitive writing, and art journal exercises, I unexpectedly found much sought-after freedom, love, and comfort in an area of life I had remained stuck in. This could only have happened in an atmosphere that felt safe enough to be artistically expressive. There was a perfect balance of feeling relaxed, yet motivated to explore the weekend themes of body, mind, and spirit.
Lulu knows how to create a space where women from different generations feel welcomed, valued, and understood. I enjoyed the sense of community offered in group circle time, around the meal table, or pottering through art supplies during the evening free time. I also enjoyed reflective time alone, simply sitting in the garden, wondering what the colours of tulips yet to unfold may be, and how these thoughts were symbolic of my life.
I recommend a retreat like the one Lulu provided for any woman who wishes to delve into their life more deeply using artistically expressive means while enjoying a break from the usual demands of life. I arrived back home feeling refreshed and wish the same for other women.

More Retreat Love
To all women out there, it is important to take time to nurture yourself. This retreat did just that by providing instruction in the art of journaling/writing, intuitive painting, circle talk, and a fun bachata dance lesson.
I have met an incredible group of women that share similar ideas and supported all of us as we shared openly about ourselves. The facilitator was incredible and made us feel very included and in touch with our inner selves.
