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 email@example.com.
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!
