Event description


Welcome, to the 5th Annual It's All About Me Retreat! The It's All About Me Retreat is a weekend away from all significant others for the purpose of concentrating on you. A time to convene without interruptions and create a platform, which properly addresses our wellness, health and overall well being. Don't miss out on this powerful, interactive, stimulating event featuring opportunities for you to connect and communicate with other women who want to attain the same goal; time out to Reflect, Relate, Renew and ultimately Reinvent!

We will be staying at the beautiful Mansion at Noble Lane! We’ll open on Thursday, April 27, 2017 with a Welcome Reception. On Friday - Sunday, April 28th - 30th, 2017 there will be morning exercise followed by interactive sessions, informative talks, down time to enjoy the Mansion, loads of networking and take home resources. Saturday includes the signature Reflect, Relate, Renew Luncheon. We will end the day with an evening of poetry; our signature Poetry Jam where spoken word of your original works allows your creativity to flow.

On Sunday, April 30, 2017 we will continue our journey of reinvention beginning with morning exercise followed by a half day of interactive sessions including our Reflections session allowing you to release whatever has been eating at your soul, your being and your spirit. It is a time to let it go, trust in your god, believe in forgiveness, and soar.

Finally there will be time for you to enjoy all The Mansion has to offer!

    REBEL NEYCHA/REBEL YOU: The Wayward Path To Greatness™ - "The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.” ~Albert Camus
    "To tell the truth about who you are, where you are and what you want from your life is an everyday act of courage. It is a choice to be fearless. Communicating what is real for you, in any given moment, and then acting on it is an exercise in freedom. When you are neither defined or moved to action by what 'everyone else is doing', you belong to yourself. It is this personal ownership that paves the way for authentic self-definition.” In this session Neycha will provide the blueprint for authentic self-definition. www.neychaonline.com
