Indulge is a two-day wellness and creative retreat and gathering helping to empower and grow your inner self and indulge in life's offerings. The Retreat will take place on November 11th - 13th 2016 at The General's Daughter in Sonoma, CA. You will learn to practice with intent and purpose to help you build a passionate business and live your authentic self. You will be guided by a team of inspiring and encouraging leaders and influencers and meeting other like-minded individuals and build lasting friendships for a remarkable and unforgettable time. Both days will create a balance to rest the mind, stumble upon new challenges and discover newfound talents. You will be surrounded by positive energy, practicing to stay focused, be present and part of this community.
INVESTING IN YOURSELF
The best investment is the one that you make towards yourself. Whether your intentions to invest is to help your business or just to have a creative weekend, it is all part of self discovery. Indulge will help you challenge yourself so that you can set daily intentions and constantly evolve. You will always know what is right for you, but sometimes we all need a bit of encouragement to try something new to see if it's right for us. Investing in yourself is living life to complete fullness.
