Experience “What Now?” 2020

A RETREAT IN SEA RANCH, CALIFORNIA | Postponed due to the Coronavirus

Only 6 spots left!

Why “What Now?”

  • Because retreat lets us look into our souls and answer the questions that linger there.
  • Because the work of reflection is a courageous pursuit. We must do it together.
  • Because we are women, strong and passionate. Let’s celebrate the feminine that superpowers us.
  • Because honoring, supporting, and connecting with like-minded women is vital.
  • Because our bodies and minds are desperate for the healing that meditation, yoga, and sound therapy provide.
  • Because a short escape from everyday life means deeper joy and meaning when we step back into it.

Our Spring What Now? 2020 Retreat has been postponed for a short period of time due to the coronavirus. We will reschedule as soon as possible, so please stay tuned for updates or inquire to stay notified of the newly released dates.



Balance your body with daily meditation and yoga, still your mind, partake in the pleasures of food and friendship. Share in circle together. Transformation, wisdom, clarity, and self-discovery await.


Enjoy great organic food and (wine too) that the North Coast offers. As we gather around the table with friends and nourish our bodies, we also deeply nurture our hearts and souls.



Let freedom and creativity flow through art. We embark upon various (simple) art projects during the retreat, designed to awaken your heart in new ways and give space for healthy expression and whimsy.



Relax in beautiful guest rooms overlooking the ocean. Leave your chores and “to do” lists behind, simply to bask in the luxury of rest in this home away from home set on the coastal cliffs of the Sonoma Coast at Sea Ranch, California.

Ginnie Baskin

The What Now Retreat gave me the opportunity to not only reflect and let go, but to also live fully in the present moment. While I was there, I was able to clearly define my life purpose statement and I have since found a new job doing exactly what I am meant to do in life. I left feeling recharged and renewed. It was a special treat to connect with Kristine and all of the other amazing women! – Ginnie Baskin

TJ Nelson and Kris Carlson

The What Now Retreat is a special weekend of connecting with women who are all seeking to expand themselves and take a deeper look inside. The retreat is powerful, fun, it opens you, and fills you up with loving support. When you leave the retreat you will walk away with new insights, newly established friendships, and fresh new goals for creating the life of your dreams. – TJ Nelson
