My Purpose & My Values

This program is foundational, the ground work for the retreat programs that follow. In a firm, but gentle fashion, Alana will guide participants to find their personal purpose and values. Participants in this retreat will address and answer the following two fundamental questions:

  • What truly matters to me?
  • What are my highest values in life?

“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” – Mark Twain

Goals that Matter 

Only after you understand your values, and what drives you, can you set goals that truly matter and are worthy of your time and dedication. Frequently, entrepreneurs are in pain because the set empty goals, not tied to their calling in life, and give up before they attain them. Participants in this retreat will address and answer the following two fundamental questions:

  • What are the key changes I want to make in my life?
  • What is the plan that will help me achieve each of these changes?

Leading an Intentional Life

Achieving clarity on your purpose, and meaningful goals are the steps that start to lead you to an intentional life. In this workshop we learn to see clearly what is going on around us, to be in control rather than led by reaction or circumstance. Too often we're riding a speeding train going straight ahead without ever looking around to be sure we're still on the right track. We arrive at a destination unsure how we got there, or if it’s where we want to be in the first place. This is what happens when we are reactive instead of intentional.

Participants in this retreat will address and answer these fundamental questions:

  • How do I take full control of my destiny?
  • How do I go from reactive to active in any situation?
  • How am I getting in my own way, and how can I remove the stumbling blocks?

Leaving a Personal & Family Legacy 

Why are you here and what is the mark that you want to leave on the world? What do you stand for and how will you be remembered? The purpose of this retreat is to create a life of integrity and deep fulfillment. Participants will address and answer these key questions:

  • What is my vision for my personal legacy, the mark that I want to leave on the world?
  • What is my vision for my family legacy, and how will I co-create this?

Note: All retreats include a survey sent to all members pre retreat. Personal review by Alana with the moderator. Any pre-work, and hand outs are included. Alana also schedules two 30 minute follow up calls with the moderator in the three months post retreat. In these calls we’ll make sure that everything is on track and supply any follow up material if needed.
