“Girlfriends Reinvention Weekends to Reboot Your Brain Camp!”



You are ready to go boldly into WHAT’S NEXT!!!

You may be a little tired, or discouraged or unsure or just not certain about who you are and what you really want. The economy may have you scared and feeling less than on top of your game….

For sure…. you know you could use some time without distractions… Some time to relax, reboot and re-connect with what’s important to you….not just what the world seems to expect from you.

How about…a.. just us girls weekend?

supportive circle of women to giggle  (or cry) with. A maximum of 6 at each weekend retreat.                (We can talk about more if you have a bigger group that wants to come.)

In a simple, cool setting, Carra's house,  with all your needs met for 3 days at the gateway to the Grand Canyon?

Would this work?

Totally cool!!!! Because that’s what we have in mind

Already know you want to come?   click here to register!

Who it’s really for:

This weekend for you!  Like the commercial says…you can “have it your way” and  we have planned plenty of ways if you want to really immerse yourself in a selfish (the good kind-taking care of self!) three days playing and laughing and eating and learning about how your brain works!

Come to hang out or reinvent yourself. It’s up to you!

Embracing “Cosmic Shift Happens ™”  in all aspects of life

What’s different from any other retreat or workshop out there ? .

Here’s what we aren’t going to do:

  • We aren’t going to require you do anything!
  • We aren’t going to fix you.
  • We aren’t going to force you to network & try to get business.
  • Actually, we aren’t even going pretend we have the right answers for you…. Because only you know that

This is about you and what you really need.

This is a place to unwind, slow down, reboot with today's technology for a few days and lower your shoulders and get reacquainted with yourself, your truths, and your vision.

We will  provide a place for you to renew and nurture your connection with yourself and what’s important to you, a little something for the soul along with learning some new social media venues and how to make them work for you and your voice.

So, What will you actually get out of this weekend?

  • You’ll get some nurturing and make some friends…..
  • You’ll discover where you are stuck and decide if you are ready to move beyond that.
  • You’ll get to feel joy and life and fun again–yes, that good stuff. Really and truly.
  • You’ll feel less alone. Ever feel like a round peg in a square hole? Not at this retreat! These are your people.
  • You’ll get to rest. I mean, really, really  rest. To recharge and gather strength.
  • You’ll get perspective on your projects and your life, and a clearer picture of where you want to go next.
  • You’ll get a rush of creative energy and the comfort of feeling less alone.
  • You’ll get a serious dose of surprising, wonderful courage.
  • You will FIND your voice!
  • Learn the latest social media venues, Pinterest, Google+, Instagram, Foursquare, hook up with hoot suite and design a social media strategy that works for you. 

*Oh, and you’ll get the pleasure of knowing that you won’t have to cook, clean, or take care of anybody else for three whole days!

If you are thinking “yes, but….We understand.

Maybe you are wondering if you can afford it… but then don’t you hate it when someone says,”yes but can you afford NOT to do it?” …This weekend  can give you back some of those other dreams you’ve put on hold!

Plus, we’ve made it more affordable by giving you a $25 discount (each) if you bring a girlfriend.

And, actually, if it looks like it would be hard to arrange this…it’s even more important you do, because if you can make this work, you will start to see you can have anything you REALLY put your mind to!

Some what we’ll cover in our Girlfriend’s Reinvention Weekend

Carefully designed blocks of time where you can reboot for a weekend filled with

helpful, funny, chock-full-of-help, mini-seminars like:

  • Talking smack.
  • Finding Your Purpose.
  • Finding your voice!
  • How to turn that Inner Critic from a heckler to a helper.
  • Discovering what your true gift is!
  • How to stop beating yourself up for not being perfect!
  • Learn some of the latest social media venues and strategy of how they can work for you.


  • Daily support and a place to be heard
  • A band of allies in the women who, like you, are willing to take a risk and make time and devote resources to their  dreams–you’re going to make some dear new friends, and yes, we love the shy introverts and the outrageous extroverts: you are all embraced!
  • A take-home journal & folder of handouts to support what you’ve learned
  • Time to explore the vibrant, creative, funky environment of Arizona’s high Country

This retreat is NOT for you if:

  • You want a pampered spa weekend

IF YOU HAVE TO CANCEL (please don’t, you don’t want to miss this!)

If you cancel 30 days before your weekend we will refund all but $50 of your deposit or balance paid in full.

If you cancel after 30 days  before the weekend after paying the balance in full, and we can fill your place, we will refund everything minus $75.

All monies are due at registration.

Why do we keep $75 bucks? To keep people from signing up on a whim and taking a place, and then canceling when it comes time to pay in full. That stinks all around. Look at your schedule, truly know you want and can come, and then sign up.
