May 18-21, 2017
SOHO, New York City
There's one thing you know for certain: You want to feel good.
When you look in the mirror. 
When you take a bite of food.
When you're out on a date.
And even when life gets messy.

Sometimes you daydream about being the woman 
who elegantly manages everything -- the good, the bad, the ugly.

Who somehow finds joy even though her heart's broken.
Who always finds the blessings in the painfully unexpected challenges.
And who looks at her body and is ok with its dimples and curves.

You want to be her, but no matter how many self-help books you read or meditations you try, something just isn’t clicking yet.

Everyday emotions, feelings, interactions, and upsets...
STILL knock you off your feet.

You wish you felt strong and graceful despite them.

Capable of handling life's ups and downs as a centered, strong, and soulful woman.
The Master Your Life Retreat was designed to guide you in becoming the kind of woman who can handle ANYTHING.
This special weekend will nourish your inner resilience, self-love, and unconditional appreciation for who you are, no matter how much you weigh, how many followers you have on Instagram, how much money you make, or whether or not you have a sexy partner to share life with.

During this luxurious weekend, you'll have the space and support to...

- Discover what's really keeping you stuck in a cycle of insecurity & doubt
- Find compassion for physical imperfections and inner criticisms
- Start building nurturing self-care practices into your daily life
- And feel beautiful and capable of anything RIGHT NOW

The Experience


Walking into a beautiful, bright New York City loft.

Welcomed by a collection of loving teachers, mentors, and gurus ready to support you, AND an amazing group of women ready to journey with you -- doing real inner work (and having fun!).

Nourishing, organic meals greet you for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Lovingly cooked by a private chef with ingredients that also happen to match the enegy and intention of each activity.

Daily workshops and ceremonies (led by Jamie and renowned wellness experts) guide you through self-care rituals, emotional breakthroughs, and energizing exercises.

And evenings open you up to unique NYC experiences and new friendships with the ladies on the retreat with you.

You'll feel hugged, loved, and accepted for who you are -- vulnerabilities, imperfections, and all -- and find a new sense of ease, confidence, and appreciation in yourself and your body.

If you'd like us to keep you posted on Jamie's upcoming retreats, 
please enter your name + email here:

When should I plan to arrive and leave by?
The first event is dinner on Thursday 5/18 at 6pm so you should plan to be here by then. The retreat will close on Sunday 5/21 by noon.  

What if I have dietary restrictions? 
As we get closer to the retreat date, we will be sending you a questionnaire to let us know of any dietary restrictions, allergies, etc. Our chef will absolutely accommodate! If you have more specific food questions, please email us at

What about accommodations? NYC is confusing! Where should I stay? 
Most of our activities will be located in the NoHo / SoHo area of downtown NYC, so it may be most convenient for you to find a hotel or AirBnb near that area. When you register, we'll send you our beautiful travel guide with our recommendations for travel + accommodations in NYC. Feel free to email us if you'd like our guide before registering or if you have any questions. We are happy to help! We will also have a FB group, so in the case that you want to room with another woman attending the retreat, we can help you organize that. 

How many women will be at the retreat? 
About 15 women.

Am I too old or too young?
My work has always attracted women of all ages. In some of my programs, we have women ranging from their 20s to their 60s -- anyone is welcome and will benefit! 

Is there a payment plan?
Yes, you can either pay in full for $1400 or do two monthly payments of $750 or three monthly payments of $550. 

I'm shy and nervous about coming alone and being with a group of women I don't know. Any advice? 
Most women (if not all) will be coming alone, so everyone will be open to meeting others. As an introvert, I can relate to fears about being in a big group, but I can assure you that we will do everything possible to make you comfortable. The women who have come to my events / programs in the past have always been blown away by the support and friendliness from the other women they have met. 

I've never been to NYC and I'm nervous about being alone in a new big city, finding a place to stay, and finding my way around. Any advice?
I know it can be intimidating to travel alone to a new city, but don't worry - we have your back! In addition to the travel + accomodations guide we created just for you, we are happy to help you find a place you're comfortable with and answer any questions you have about how to get around. I have intentionally designed the weekend to be extremely nurturing and nourishing within the upbeat, vibrant and fast pace of NYC. Anything we can help you with, just ask!

Additional Questions?
Email us at anytime.
