Event description


"Leave the familiar for awhile. Let your senses and bodies stretch out. Greet yourself in your thousand other forms, as you mount the hidden tide and travel back home." ~Hafiz

You are invited to join an intimate group of your peers in IRELAND, for a three-day sacred retreat, called The Return to Wholeness, originally designed to support Leadership Circle™ (TLC) practitioners interested in deepening together in their own conscious awakening. *

Adyashanti has described the identity as "... a fiction in the mind created by circular patterns of thinking based in separation." How would you describe your current "identity," the one that has served you well up to this point? And what is calling you now from beyond the edges of this identity?

During this special retreat in Ireland, you will experience a journey designed to help you step beyond the "edge" of all that you have imagined you have needed to be... and to inhabit an increasingly whole, grounded, generative, and powerful expression of who you actually are.

Our journey will be experiential, and will support the integration of much of the deep inner work you may already be doing… all in a loving, effortless and transformational environment.

Rumi says… “Come… return to the root of the root of yourself!” Come experience a powerful process that will help you unleash the fullest expression of your own Self, and in doing so, learn to support new levels of freedom and mastery in the lives of everyone that your work touches.

Using the Leadership Circle™ model as our initial foundation, you will experience:

  • Somatic practices that will support you in moving beyond the current limits of your "identity," and to stand more powerfully in who you actually are... and the work you were made to do

  • Simple transformational processes for shifting from the Reactive state of mind to the Creative; practices that you can use with your own clients (after you experience them for yourself!)

  • Embodied Leadership Circle™ Mat work

  • Presencing practices, silence, journaling and individual reflection time

  • Partner and Large Circle dialogue

  • Afternoons free for walking nature trails, reflection, massage therapy... renewal.

Our time together will be steeped in Silence, in a sacred atmosphere (spiritual but not religious), and we will intentionally focus more on direct experience, with less emphasis being given to processing together with our minds.

* Pre-Requisites: While the retreat was originally designed for certified Leadership Circle™ coach/ practitioners, we now invite any executive coach who feels drawn to this retreat to attend, with the stipulation that they initiate a Leadership Circle 360 profile and debrief before August 30 2018. The discounted fee for a profile and debrief is $600, due at time of registration. As of 2017, conscious executives who are seeking to support themselves as they work with Purpose are also invited... following a conversation with Peggy. If you are an executive who feels drawn to this process, please contact Peggy (facilitator) directly at

ICF CCEU credits are available for this retreat: 7.25 Core, 16.25 Resource Development

NOTE: 23.5 ICF CEUs available (7.25 Core, 16.25 Resource Development)

The RETURN to WHOLENESS process includes:

  1. A one-hour Coaching session with Peggy, in preparation for the retreat

  2. Three-day experiential Retreat, steeped in silence and nature, and shared in the company of your peers

  3. Follow-up virtual group session to offer support for the unfolding of this process in your life and work

If you are interested in taking your own “Return to Wholeness” further, in the company of peers who share a similar commitment to living consciously…and in learning some new tools for use with the Leadership Circle to help support you and your clients in this journey…please join us in a beautiful spot (Creacon Wellness Retreat Center in IRELAND) for an unforgettable experience. Registration for the October session will be limited to 18 people.

Please note: this retreat process, while rooted deeply in the sacred, would be best described as “spiritual but not religious."

DAVE SCHRADER- Partner, Full Circle Group

This retreat is a true invitation to transformation! Very restorative for seasoned practitioners, Peggy’s loving, masterfully skilled facilitation invited us all to explore our inner landscapes without fear. I found myself doing some deep inner-work and, at the same time, learning new ways to make the depth and breadth of the Leadership Circle more available to clients. A brilliant workshop / retreat!

AMY PASQUALE - Founder, Green Mesa Consulting.

You know those workshops that jump from one thing to the next - and your mind and body feels like a bouncing ball with no where to rest??? Well - this isn’t that workshop. This workshop is masterfully facilitated, inviting you all together and individually deeper into yourself. I left with an indelible understanding of how to simply and effectively unlock the power of the Leadership Circle Profile tool for myself and for others. Peggy embodies her own return to wholeness and radiates such a light that seems to have only one goal and that’s to share what she’s learned with such confidence and gentleness that instead of feeling “oh I couldn’t possibly find my way back” - you instead feel buoyed, confident and loved. The Return to Wholeness retreat is something I’m eager to experience again and count among the top 2 or 3 personal and professional dev. experiences in my life.

ROSS BROOKS- CEO, Mountain Family Health Centers

In Frederick LaLoux’s “The Future of Management is Teal,” he writes “Behind the façade of success, many top leaders are tired of the power games and infighting; despite their desperately overloaded schedules, they feel a vague sense of emptiness. All of us yearn for better ways to work together – for more soulful workplaces where our talents are nurtured and our deepest aspirations are honored.”

These two sentences were the call for me to take a leap of faith and attend a Return to Wholeness Retreat in Connecticut with Peggy McAllister in the summer of 2017. Half expecting to learn the latest and greatest Harvard Business Review techniques on managing myself and reducing employee burnout, what I learned instead was to return to breath, to welcome the wisdom of silence, and to remember who I am.

Peggy’s approach balances practical Leadership 360 techniques with spiritual practices from various traditions. Peggy is an otherworldly gem; radiating love, compassion, passion, and a deep calling to help others return to wholeness. For any leader feeling a sense of emptiness or asking “is this really what I thought I’d be doing when I grew up?” I highly recommend attending a Return to Wholeness Retreat (or more!) with Peggy McAllister.

AMY FELIX-REESE - SVP Client Services, Full Circle Group

Return to Wholeness is the next deep dive into embracing the integral You. As Peggy expertly invited participants into a sacred space of trust, openness and support, she guided us to step into our Essential Self, acknowledge the gifts of our reactive, patterned thinking, and commit to the Presence of choosing from consciousness. Her expert facilitation utilizes multiple modalities to appeal to many different learning approaches. Since taking part in her process and program, I’m amazed at what has unfolded – and continues to unfold in my experience called Life. I highly recommend this for anyone ready to shift their Presence into the Creative and Integral.

JEFF STONE- Owner, Potentia Consulting

As practitioners, we can’t ask others to do the work that we haven’t done ourselves. The RTW retreat offers the opportunity to do important inner work that can profoundly impact your life and that of your clients. How do I know? It was so powerful for me, I returned a second time and had an even deeper experience of my essential self. Following the retreat, I applied the tools Peggy teaches with a client who had been stuck for a long time, and in one session, it literally rocked her world!

ANGELO VITALE- EVP and General Counsel, Quicken Loans

As an executive (not an executive coach), I honestly didn’t know what to expect from attending The Return to Wholeness Retreat. As it turns out, for me, it was the pause that refreshes. This restorative, “unplugged” time for discernment and fellowship has proved to be a precious gift to myself and others with whom I engage every day “back in the real world.” It’s really hard to describe the impact this retreat has had on me, personally and professionally. But if I had to sum it up in just one word: Enriching (on so many levels). So treat yourself to this amazing experience; you’re worth it!
